Twenty classic songs and albums for sexy time, from Marvin Gaye to Metallica (no, really)
How often do two people start making out with each other while looking at a painting, watching a ballet or viewing a non-pornographic movie? Not much. And that’s why music is such a uniquely powerful art form.

Here, just in time for Valentine's Day, are 20 songs and albums capable of doing so. The rest is up to you.—Matt Wake, Special to Metromix
Listen to most of these songs (plus a few sound-alike substitutes—hey, we did the best we could) on Spotify.
