Yes, I was on a quest to find very carnal, female-penned songs! Well put, Janszoon. Thank you for the suggestion.

MIA's song is definitely carnal. However, I don't like the feeling of the song or its disdain for the wifey at home with the kiddee. I just don't relate to the song. I will catalog "Hombre" along with "Shewolf," another carnal song I don't like. Still, I'm glad to have heard it.

My quest for carnal, female-penned songs was short-lived. Now I'm at the opposite pole, listening to ethereal music by Enya, whose music definitely seems more about the "spirit" than the flesh to me. Ideally, there would be some nice songs that combine both pleasures of the body and the spirit as the subject matter, since I feel they are one entity, indivisible.

Enya - Marble Halls
Haunting and sad with longing, but not very carnal. I love the gloomy, wistful mood of the song, though.

Enya - Caribbean Blue
My favorite song of all of hers. I love the low gong sound and the feeling of waves and echos. The song feels magical and so I feel the video suits it well.

I looked up the lyrics since I've never done that before and I wanted to be sure I wasn't mishearing them. I hoped the lyrics, which always seemed somewhat cryptic to me, would make more sense upon reading them but...they don't. Still, I like the song very much.

"Caribbean Blue" | The Lyrics

Afer Ventus (African wind)...

So the world goes round and round
with all you ever knew.
They say the sky high above
is Caribbean blue.

If every man says all he can,
if every man is true,
do I believe the sky above
is Caribbean blue?


If all you told was [sic] turned to gold,
if all you dreamed was [sic] new,
imagine sky high above
in Caribbean blue.

Afer Bentus...

Lil B - Illusions Of Grandeur Mixtape.

He isnt everone's cup of tea, and he wasnt mine to begin with. This mixtape is fantastic though, its a show of what he can do.

Fame, fortune, power, titties. People say these are the most crucial things in life, but you can have a pocket full o' gold and it doesn't mean sh*t if you don't have someone to share that gold with. Seems simple. Yet it's an important lesson to learn. Even lone wolves run in packs sometimes.

Ornette Coleman & Prime Time - Virgin Beauty

Jerry Garcia guests on three tracks, but the album as a whole is bogged down by too many 80s jazz conventions (slap bass, synth-drums)
