One of the artists that has not only seduced us this year but a swell of music fans is singer-songwriter Ramsey. The Los Angeles resident has released a handful of songs over the past year, each one more devastating than the other. Her immersion of R&B, soul, and electronic is dark, gritty, dramatic, and powerful, and what she’s doing for the genre is akin to what Lana Del Rey did for emotive indie pop-rock.
While we await another new single – and album for that matter – we invited Ramsey to share five songs with which she would use to seduce someone. The topic only seemed fitting since she already has us eating from her hands.
Five Songs to Seduce Someone by Ramsey
Thievery Corporation – “Decollage”
This is just a beautiful song that moves me whenever I hear it. The vocals are soft and bright with a tone that exudes sexuality in a calming way. While I don’t understand the lyrics as I don’t speak French, the song conveys something that is definitely seductive in a way only the melodic sounds of a French vocal could.
Massive Attack – “Angel”
It’s dark and sultry. The sounds used in this track have an eerie quality that only Massive Attack could turn into something seductive. I can imagine this song playing during the scene of a movie in which a mysterious temptress woos a naive man with her dark enchantments.
Movement – “Like Lust”
The way this song opens is just so smooth. It’s simple yet very powerful, as it slides into the vocals that slowly build up with the line “Could you come on over, when it feels like lust”. Then the drums kick in, and it’s just sexy. Listen to the song; it pretty much says it all.
Chris Isaak – “Blue Spanish Sky”
This song and I already have chemistry as it is. Chris Isaak’s voice in this song is just mesmerizing and is the ultimate seduction. Then when the horns come in, it’s over for me.
Frank Ocean – “Pink Matter”
Everything from the synths to Frank Ocean’s vocals are seductive in a sad nostalgic way. He captures the imagination with his soulfulness and makes you feel like he’s singing directly to you. There’s nothing more seductive than Frank Ocean’s voice.
