    Check out new remixes of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. i.e. Lemon Tree remixed by Thievery Corporation.
    Also check out Massive Attack.

    Yes! Yes. Yes. yes. It's perfect.

    For after-the-fact, my very favorite is My Morning Jacket - At Dawn, or Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts of the Great Highway. I think the after music is just as important as the starting music.

    I used the Evens on myfirst date with my current gf. WOrked out really well. Never thought I'd be macking to Ian MacKaye. =)

    The music should be somewhat in the background, so limiting it to soft sounds is probably the best tactic. Romance, a CD in Spanish by crooner Luis Miguel seems to work very well. This is a collection of old boleros. They are real panty-droppers. If you can karaoke a few bars to her while sitting on the couch while having a nice drink, I guarantee you success. The Great American Songbook series by Rod Stewart contains other panty-dropping tunes, which don't require knowledge of a foreign language. M8

    How could I have forgotten "Don't Give Up On Me" by Solomon Burke?

    Moon Safari is indeed the go-to record for time making. When "Sexy Boy" comes on, make sure to arch your back and one eyebrow, and writhe around in provocative poses. Lip synch if possible. Works every time.

    designprofessor: I'll have to check that album out. Since I have a true bachelor pad, a copy of "Whipped Cream and other Delights" hangs on my wall.

    Brian: I think Ian Mackaye started writing Evens songs in order to make out with the drummer. [​IMG]

    Oh yeah! Avalon! boy that brings back good memories.
    That looks suspiciously like Mr. Ferry on your icon.
    Cocteau Twins, early stuff, song called Hollow Men. I still have the song, as for the girl.........

    The Costes compilations. All seven albums, or as far as they've got now.

    Piazzolla's Tango Zero Hour is lovely

    and in the vein of another recommendation: Verve Remixed or the Hotel Costes mixes.

    The single from Black Flag: "Jealous Again" or the later song off the LP "Who's got the 10 1/2?" Both of those work everytime.....
