Ten Great Make-out Songs

It's summer, which is in my opinion, the best season for making out. Not that making out is a seasonal pleasure, but there's something about sun and beaches and fruity cocktails that makes me especially keen to lock lips. So here's my list of all-time favorite songs that are well-suited for smooching. Feel free in the comments section to add in your own picks!

1. Crimson and Clover (Tommy James and the Shondells)
2. Succexy (Metric)*
3. Everybody Here Wants You (Jeff Buckley)
4. Father Figure (George Michael)
5. With a Girl Like You (The Troggs)
6. This is Not a Love Song (Nouvelle Vague)
7. Can't Stop Thinking About You (Martin Sexton)
8. Tear You Apart (She Wants Revenge)
9. I've Got To See You Again (Norah Jones)
10. You Know I'm No Good (Arctic Monkeys)

*Really, every song on Metric's album Old World Underground, Where Are You Now is great for making out.

I think I agree with #8. Also, I'd like to add "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails.

You forgot about Akon - "Right Now (Na Na Na)" as in "I wanna make love right now na na."

Goddamn, you couldn't be more right about that Buckley tune, and I didn't even think anybody had any posthumous material of his. That song gets me in the mood even if I'm eatin nachos and watchin law and order on mute - it's just that sexy. If I could add to your list, I'd say you gotta give a slot to the original sexual healer, Marvin Gaye. I like to go with a song like Please Stay, the second cut off Let's Get It On. However, I would also find that that makeout session would come to boil pretty quick if you just let the album play through.
