Songs that put you "in the mood"

So I'm watching the football game, and a commercial comes on with Marvin Gaye's "Let's get it on". I don't even know what the product was they were advertising, but I went upstairs and gave the lady the look, and she shot me down like "I ain't got time for that". LOL. But man, those first few chords on that twangy guitar get me. What's yours?

I'm in the mood for love, simply because your near me, funny but when your near me, I'm in the mood for love.

Ok Irene,

"Some day, when I'm awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight..."

We;re getting a playlist going here! smiling smiley

If I loved you, love wouldn't come in an easy way, round in circles I'd go, longing to hold you but afraid and shy, I let my golden chances pass me by.
I grew up in the 50's/60's listening to great jazz like /Ella, Nina....Jazz and love longs all the way.
San Francisco...Hungry I and tons of jazz clubs, now if my memory doesn't deceive me, let's go!!!!!

@Irene_L.A.. Carousel. Awesome. I'm curious if the younger members of the forum (I'm 56) have any more "modern" examples.

I saw Etta James in concert once, I also saw Ray Charles and Miles Davis in concert (different shows of course).

People in my generation or Gen Z: Bruno Mar's First Time or my favorite, Jhene Aiko's Bed Peace, depending on the type of girl I'm engaged with at the time.

Whenever I'm messing someone a little older than me, but is still a Millennial: Janet Jackson's Anytime, Any Place.

Haven't messed with anyone my parent's age (Gen X). But if I ever did: maybe some Sade?

As for my grandparent's age, a Baby Boomer, I'd play something more their style like Paul Anka.

Shopping the Greater Denver Area, Colorado Springs and in-between in Colorado. 30 year old male and willing to travel! Badged for Denver International Airport.

@Tarantado, thanks. I'm not familiar, but I will look those up. And BTW, if you got so lucky, don't dismiss the older set. There's something to be said for "experience". smiling smiley And wait, did you just call me old? LOL!

The commercial was for Applebees. I think Wal-Mart started the trend of using Generation X classics in their commercials. I like it.
