That is so reassuring to see Wicked Game on so many of your "sexy lists". My DH thinks I am crazy...but that song does do it for me!

No music makes me feel these ways, I just only listen to certain music when I already feel these ways:

sad: Sade is the artist of choice, and Celine Dion if I'm lover-sad

happy: children's music if I'm happy-go-lucky, Anita Baker if I'm in-love happy

sexy: music pretty much saps the sexiness out of me. I might listen to Sade, but I'd have to be feeling sexy and sad, simultaneously.

crabby: hard rock

nostalgic: nothing really. If I heard some old Jodeci, I'd feel nostalgic, I guess.

contemplative: No Doubt

like dancing: trip hop, electric, 80s music like old Madonna and Duran Duran...and Tears for Fears!

like marching in a rally: nothing. But Talib Kweli makes me feel revolutionary. As do some others...

like bashing something: Queen of the Damned soundtrack. It soooo calms me down.

depressed: Sade...kinda same thing as sad for me
