Sabotage — Beastie Boys

This song came on my alarm and I instantly had an image of a scene in a dungeon involving impact play.

If you haven’t heard it, press play. If you have heard it then it’s already playing in your head. You’re welcome.

‘Sabotage’

By Adam Horovitz, Adam Nathanial Yauch, Michael Louis Diamond

I can’t stand it I know you planned it
But I’m gonna set it straight, this Watergate
I can’t stand rocking when I’m in here
Because your crystal ball ain’t so crystal clear
So while you sit back and wonder why
I got this fucking thorn in my side
Oh my God, it’s a mirage
I’m tellin’ y’all it’s a sabotage
So listen up ’cause you can’t say nothin’
You’ll shut me down with a push of your button?
But I’m out and I’m gone
I’ll tell you now I keep it on and on
‘Cause what you see you might not get
And we can bet so don’t you get souped yet
You’re scheming on a thing that’s a mirage
I’m trying to tell you now it’s sabotage
Why; our backs are now against the wall
Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage
Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage
Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage
Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage

I can’t stand it, I know you planned it
But I’m gonna set it straight this Watergate
I can’t stand rockin’ when I’m in this place
Because I feel disgrace because you’re all in my face
But make no mistakes and switch up my channel
I’m Buddy Rich when I fly off the handle
What could it be, it’s a mirage
You’re scheming on a thing, that’s sabotage

Not Afraid of Romance — Machine Gun Fellatio

Machine Gun Fellatio’s ‘Not Afraid of Romance’ is a mix of electronic beats and jazzy horns and vocals.

It’s a nice one for upbeat scenes with a lighter vibe.

‘Not Afraid of Romance’

by Ross Andrew Johnston; Glenn Easton Dormand; Matt Ford

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8
let it all out

when the sunshine hits your eyes you’ll find me there
and i’m not afraid of romance
although you’ve just arrived to crash my life
your smile is saying something that i like
you’re not afraid of romance
and i’m not afraid of romance

don’t be afraid
don’t be afraid
don’t be afraid
and i’m not afraid of romance

let it all out
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

when the sunshine hits your eyes you’ll find me there
and i’m not afraid of romance
although you’ve just arrived to crash my life
your smile is saying something that i like
you’re not afraid of romance
and i’m not afraid of romance

don’t be afraid
don’t be afraid
don’t be afraid
and i’m not afraid of romance

don’t be afraid
don’t be afraid
don’t be afraid
i’m not afraid

when the sunshine hits your eyes you’ll find me there
and i’m not afraid of romance
when the sunshine hits your eyes you’ll find me there
and i’m not afraid of romance
when the sunshine hits your eyes you’ll find me there
and i’m not afraid of romance
when the sunshine hits your eyes you’ll find me there
and i’m not afraid of romance

Hard Normal Daddy Album — Squarepusher

Squarepusher’s album Hard Normal Daddy is … unlike anything else I’ve yet posted in the music for scenes category.

It’s electronic–at times chaotic, frenetic, hectic. Other times mellowing out, only to pick back up. There are lovely melodies overlaid with syncopated beats and bass.

Includes music that a friend of mine would describe as ‘robots fighting in a washing machine’, which I happen to like.

The album is instrumental, so no lyrics today.

You may also try his Feed Me Weird Things and Do You Know Squarepusher.

Anarchy in the UK — Sex Pistols

Our friends across the pond having been making some ‘interesting’ decisions of late, so this seems apropos.

Between the people choosing to vote Leave who didn’t actually mean it and were surprised their vote counted, to the pound plummeting to a thirty-year low, to the Prime Minister resigning, followed by a fair portion of the shadow cabinet

It’s all right, though, because the people who sold the Leave campaign have already admitted they lied about everything to get what they wanted.

Nicola Sturgeon has stepped up like the badass she is, though, and is leading Scotland to independence from England and right into the EU. Women keep it together in a crisis.

(And that petition to call a second referendum won’t fly. You have to have the rules to call it in place before the first referendum is held. Unfortunately. Brexit is done.)

What I’m saying is: ‘Anarchy in the UK’ is the song of the moment. Normally I’m not into sploshing, but a giant pit full of mud and punk playing at sternum-rattling levels and I think we’re onto something.
 

‘Anarchy in the UK’

by Glen Matlock, John Lydon, Paul Thomas Cook, Stephen Philip Jones

Right now ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
I am an anti-Christ
I am an anarchist
Don’t know what I want
But I know how to get it
I want to destroy the passerby

‘Cause I want to be anarchy
No dogs body

Anarchy for the U.K.
It’s coming sometime and maybe
I give a wrong time, stop a traffic line
Your future dream has sure been seen through

‘Cause I want to be anarchy
In the city

How many ways to get what you want
I use the best, I use the rest
I use the N.M.E.
I use anarchy

‘Cause I want to be anarchy
Its the only way to be

Is this the MPLA
Or is this the UDA
Or is this the IRA
I thought it was the U.K.
Or just another country
Another council tenancy

I want to be anarchy
And I want to be anarchy
(Oh what a name)
And I want to be an anarchist
(I get pissed, destroy!)

Push It — Garbage

There isn’t a great deal to say about Garbage’s ‘Push It’ in terms of why I chose it for this week’s Music for Scenes.

You put it on and either want to dance or hit something (or be hit with something).

Something about the lyrics puts me in mind of the type of scene where the bottom is competing with themselves–seeing how much they can take. Like they’re coaching themselves along.

[Obviously, if you’re planning on doing a scene of that nature–let your top know that’s the goal or you may be at cross purposes and Bad Things may occur as a result.]

‘Push It’

by Hugh Brankin, Ross Campbell, John Robinson Reid, Graham Wilson

I was angry when I met you
I think I’m angry still
We can try to talk it over
If you say, you’ll help me out

Don’t worry baby
(Don’t worry baby)
No need to fight
Don’t worry baby
(Don’t worry baby)
We’ll be alright

This is the noise that keeps me awake
My head explodes and my body aches
Push it, make the beats go harder
Pu-pu-push it, make the beats go harder

I’m sorry that I hurt you
Please don’t ask me why
I want to see you happy
I want to see you shine

Don’t worry baby
(Don’t worry baby)
Don’t be uptight
Don’t worry baby
(Don’t worry baby)
We’ll stay up all night

This is the noise that keeps me awake
My head explodes and my body aches
Push it, make the beats go harder
Pu-pu-push it, make the beats go harder

C’mon push it, you can do it
C’mon prove it, nothin’ to it
C’mon use it, let’s get through it
C’mon push it, you can do it

Don’t worry baby
(Don’t worry baby)
Don’t be uptight
Don’t worry baby
(Don’t worry baby)
We’ll stay up all night

This is the noise that keeps me awake
My head explodes and my body aches
Push it, make the beats go harder
Push it, make the beats go harder
(This is the noise that keeps me awake)

(My head explodes and my body aches)
Push it, make the beats go harder
(This is the noise that keeps me awake)
Push it, make the beats go harder
(My head explodes and my body aches)

Don’t worry baby
We’ll be alright
Don’t worry baby
We’ll be alright

Push it
Push it
Push it
Push it

Liar — Rollins Band

I felt like something a little angry today and Mr Henry Rollins is a smart man with some angry sounds so he fit the bill.

‘Liar’ is a good song for scenes, as it tells a story of its own, if you’d like to pay attention to the lyrics.

If not, the breaks and beat and riffs certainly offer plenty of motivation.

Fun fact: Until putting this post together, I thought Rollins wrote this song. It turns out that it’s by Ozzy, amongst others.

‘Liar’

Written by: Ozzy Obsbourne, Zakk Wylde, Bob Daisley, John Sinclair

You think you’re gonna to live your life alone
In darkness
And seclusion
Yeah I know
You’ve been out there
Tried to mix with those animals
And it just left you full of humiliated confusion
So you stagger back home
And wait for nothing
But the solitary refinement of your room spits you back out onto the street
And now you’re desperate
And in need of human contact
And then
You meet me
And you whole world changes
Because everything I say is everything you’ve ever wanted to hear
So you drop all your defenses and you drop all your fears
And you trust me completely
I’m perfect
In every way
Cause I make you feel so strong and so powerful inside
You feel so lucky
But your ego obscures reality
And you never bother to wonder why
Things are going so well
You wanna know why?
Cause I’m a liar
Yeah I’m a liar
I’ll tear your mind out
I’ll burn your soul
I’ll turn you into me
I’ll turn you into me
Cause I’m a liar, a liar
A liar, a liar

I’ll hide behind a smile
And understanding eyes
And I’ll tell you things that you already know
So you can say
I really identify with you, so much
And all the time that you’re needing me
Is just the time that I’m bleeding you
Don’t you get it yet?
I’ll come to you like an affliction
And I’ll leave you like an addiction
You’ll never forget me
You wanna know why?
Cause I’m a liar
Yeah I’m a liar
I’ll rip your mind out
I’ll burn your soul
I’ll turn you into me
I’ll turn you into me
Cause I’m a liar, a liar
Liar, liar, liar, liar

I don’t know why I feel the need to lie
And cause you so much pain
Maybe it’s something inside
Maybe it’s something I can’t explain
Cause all I do
Is mess you up and lie to you
I’m a liar
Oh, I am a liar

If you’ll give me one more chance
I swear that I will never lie to you again
Because now I see the destructive power of a lie
They’re stronger than truth
I can’t believe I ever hurt you
I swear
I will never to you lie again, please
Just give me one more chance
I will never lie to you again
I swear
That I will never tell a lie
I will never tell a lie
No, no
Ha ha ha ha ha hah haa haa haa haaa
Sucker
Sucker!
Oh, sucker
I am a liar
Yeah, I am a liar
Yeah I like it
I feel good
Ohh I am a liar
Yeah
I lie
I lie
I lie
Oh, I lie
Oh I lie
I lie
Yeah
Ohhh I’m a liar
I lie
Yeah
I like it
I feel good
I’ll lie again
And again
I’ll lie again and again
And I’ll keep lying
I promise

Fly Away — Lenny Kravitz

The lyrics to Fly Away by Lenny Kravitz remind me of someone either looking forward to reaching subspace after a hard week or a metaphorical expression for rope suspension.

It’s a hard rocking song, sure to keep the energy of a scene going (or a sub distracted, if you turn it right up).

“Fly Away” written by Lenny Kravitz

I wish that I could fly
Into the sky
So very high
Just like a dragonfly

I’d fly above the trees
Over the seas in all degrees
To anywhere I please

Oh I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah

Oh I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah

Let’s go and see the stars
The milky way or even Mars
Where it could just be ours

Let’s fade into the sun
Let your spirit fly
Where we are one
Just for a little fun
Oh oh oh yeah !

I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah

I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah

I got to get away
Feel I got to get away
Oh oh oh yeah

I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah with you yeah yeah
Oh Yeah !

I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah with you yeah yeah
I got to get away

I want to get away [X4]
Yeah
I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah with you yeah yeah
I got to get away

I want to get away [X4]
Yeah

I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah with you

Run Boy Run — Woodkid

Woodkid’s infectious ‘Run Boy Run’ tells the story of a boy who is different from the other kids–and what kinky person can’t relate to that?–who is trying to find a safe place until he can get away to be his own person.

Musically, there’s a rushing beat, urging the listener on, to get away. Then a melodic break, hopeful for a future and being able to be yourself, whomever that may be.

‘Run Boy Run’

by Ambroise Willaume, Yoann Lemoine

Run boy run! This world is not made for you
Run boy run! They’re trying to catch you
Run boy run! Running is a victory
Run boy run! Beauty lays behind the hills

Run boy run! The sun will be guiding you
Run boy run! They’re dying to stop you
Run boy run! This race is a prophecy
Run boy run! Break out from society

Tomorrow is another day
And you won’t have to hide away
You’ll be a man, boy!
But for now it’s time to run, it’s time to run!

Run boy run! This ride is a journey to
Run boy run! The secret inside of you
Run boy run! This race is a prophecy
Run boy run! And disappear in the trees

Tomorrow is another day
And you won’t have to hide away
You’ll be a man, boy!
But for now it’s time to run, it’s time to run!

Tomorrow is another day
And when the night fades away
You’ll be a man, boy!
But for now it’s time to run, it’s time to run!

Somethin Hot — Afghan Whigs

Afghan Whigs’ ‘Somethin’ Hot’ is one sexy song.

It’s a rock number with a darker tone, but the lyrics are double entendre city, which is what makes it perfect for scenes.

‘Somethin’ Hot’

Written by Gregory E. Dulli

I got your phone number, baby
I’ll call you sometime
I think I might, be out tonight
Maybe give you a ride

Cocktails for two, down lover’s lane
I wantcha so bad, after tonight
I’ll never walk the same
And you’re to blame

I wanna getcha high
I wanna get next to you
I wanna feel everything
I wanna feel, I wanna feel good

You make me feel good, baby, you don’t know
Just how I lie awake
And dream awhile, about your smile
And the way you make your ass shake

If that ain’t love
I guess I’ll never know
A sweeter lie, you’d be surprised
Just how far I’d go to make it so

I wanna getcha high
I wanna get next to you
I wanna feel everything aboutcha, girl
I wanna feel good
You make me feel good, baby

I wanna getcha high
I wanna get next to you
I wanna feel everything aboutcha, girl
I wanna feel good
You make me feel good

You make me feel good
I wanna feel good
You make me feel good
I wanna feel good
I wanna feel good
I wanna feel good
I wanna feel good
I wanna feel good

Raspberry Swirl Lip Gloss Version – Tori Amos

This remix was the bonus song on the CD single of ‘Cruel’, which is the other song of Tori Amos’ I’ve featured. A fact I noticed only after I chose it. Whoops.

Still, this song is excellent and I don’t care.

The original is good, don’t get me wrong, but the remix ups the urgency. It makes me want to get on a throbbing dance floor with a bunch of other people, which is saying something.

Lyrically… Ms Amos has a message for the gentlemen. Ahem.

‘Raspberry Swirl’ lyrics and music by Tori Amos

Let’s go

I am not your Senorita
I am not from your tribe
In the garden, in the garden I did no crime

I am not your Senorita
I am not from your tribe
If you want inside of her, well
Boy you better make her a raspberry swirl

Things are getting de-desperate
When all the boys can’t be men
Everybody knows I’m her friend
Everybody knows I’m her man

Things are getting de-desperate
When all the boys can’t be men
Everybody knows I’m her friend
Everybody knows I’m her man

Let’s go

I am not your Senorita
I don’t aim so high
In my heart, in my heart I did no crime
If you want inside her, well
Boy you better make her a raspberry swirl

Raspberry swirl
Let’s go
Raspberry swirl

Things are getting de-desperate
When all the boys can’t be men
Everybody knows I’m her friend
Everybody knows I’m her man

Things are getting de-desperate
When all the boys can’t be men
Everybody knows I’m her friend
Everybody knows I’m her man

Things are getting de-desperate
When all the boys can’t be men
Everybody knows I’m her friend
Everybody knows I’m her man

Raspberry swirl
Let’s go

Ghosts I-IV — Nine Inch Nails

Nine Inch Nails’ instrumental double album Ghosts I-IV is one of my all-time favorite albums. It consists of 36 songs and I’m never tempted to skip one of them.

It’s been on heavy rotation this week on my phone and I was trying to choose one or even three or four songs for this post, but it was an impossible task.

This is the widescreen version of wallpaper #5 (of 11).

This is the widescreen version of wallpaper #5 (of 11).

The songs range from perfect for aftercare (mellow, almost ambient) to excellent for heavy impact scenes (industrial, electronic). And everything in between.

Somehow, listening to the entire album in one go also works, though I don’t know how it would be to use for a scene.

On his site, Reznor describes the album as being very visual and it is definitely that. It’s an atmospheric album, as well, which is probably why it’s perfect for different types of scenes.

This is the widescreen version of wallpaper #2.

This is the widescreen version of wallpaper #2.

It was released in 2008 straight from Reznor’s own website.

From there you can download the first nine songs for free. The full 36 songs are available in a variety of formats (all DRM-free) for $5 and includes a 40 page PDF booklet and wallpapers (some of which are included in this post). Other downloadable extras like avatars and phone wallpapers are included, as well.

It does not include this photo of Trent rocking out on the xylophone, though. (source)

It does not include this photo of Trent rocking out on the xylophone, though. (source)

The 2 CD set includes the digital download and all that entails is $10. This is what I got.

I admit to liking Trent Reznor because when he found out his (at the time) record company was gouging his Australian fans ‘because they would pay’ exorbitant prices for a particular album he released the album on torrent services for free. The man knows he has enough money.

He regularly makes available the individual tracks of his songs to see what fans will come up with in remixes.

[Though it’s like trying to choose a favorite child, I will admit a particular fondness for track three. It is, what I believe the kids today call a ‘banger’. And not in the British sausage meaning.]

More Human Than Human — White Zombie

White Zombie and Rob Zombie have multiple songs that are excellent for heavy scenes. I decided to go with this one, as the lyrics could be the encouragement a top needs during a scene.

‘More Human Than Human’

Yeah, I am the astro creep
A demolition style
Hell american freak, yeah
I am the crawling dead
A phantom in a box
Shadow in your head say
Acid, suicide freedom of the blast
Read the fucker lies, yeah
Scratch off the broken skin
Tear into my heart make
Me do it again yeah
Yeah [x4]

More Human Than Human
[x6]

Yeah, I am the jigsaw man
I turn the world around
With a skeleton hand say
I am electric head
A cannibal core
A television said, yeah
Do not victimize
Read the motherfucker
Psychoholic lies, yeah
Into a psychic war
I tear my soul apart and I
Eat it some more, yeah
Yeah [x4]

More Human Than Human
[x6]

Yeah, I am the ripper man
A locomotion mind
Love american style, yeah
I am the nexus one
I want more life fucker
I ain’t done, yeah

More Human Than Human

Paradise Circus – Massive Attack feat Hope Sandoval

Paradise Circus by Massive Attack featuring Hope Sandoval (remixed by Gui Boratto) is an amazing song for mid-to-heavy scenes. The hand-claps of the original (see below) have been replaced with drumming that’s almost tribal, which could help both players get into a particular headspace.

The original song is more low-key and excellent for aftercare. It’s the theme song for Luther. If you haven’t seen that show go, go watch it now. The villain strikes me as the sort of person who knows a bit about BDSM.

Here’s the original:

‘Paradise Circus’

by Daniel Jonathan Brown, Stewart Neville Jackson, Grantley Evean Marshall, Robert Del Naja and Hope Sandoval

It’s unfortunate that when we feel a stone
We can roll ourselves over ’cause we’re uncomfortable
Oh well, the devil makes us sin
But we like it when we’re spinning in his grip

Love is like a sin, my love
For the ones that feel it the most
Look at her with her eyes like a flame
She will love you like a fly will never love you again

It’s unfortunate that when we feel a stone
We can roll ourselves over when we’re uncomfortable
Oh well, the devil makes us sin
But we like it when we’re spinning in his grip

Love is like a sin, my love
For the one that feels it the most
Look at her with a smile like a flame
She will love you like a fly will never love you again

Hey Pretty — Poe

And the song without her brother reading sections of his book all over it:

This song sounds like a D-type trying to get a sweet little sub into their den of debauchery.

The album it comes from, Haunted, was written to accompany her brother’s book House of Leaves, which is why the music video is the way it is.

Lyrics by Annie Danielewski (Poe), Mathew Wilder, Ken Burgomaster

‘Hey Pretty’

Well it’s 3a.m. I’m out here driving again
Through the wicked winding streets of my world
I take a wrong turn break it but I’m too far gone
I’ve got a siren on my tale and that’s not the fine
I’m looking for

I see a stairway so I follow it down
Into the belly of a whale
Where my secrets echo all around
You know me now but to do better than that
You’ve got to follow me
Boy I’m trying to show you where I’m at

Hey pretty
Don’t you want to take a ride with me?
Through my world
Hey pretty
Don’t you want to kick and slide with me
Through my world

Well I’ve got a mind full of wicked desings
I’ve got a non-stop-whole in my head-imagination
I’m in a building that has two thousand floors
And when they all fall down
I think you know who their falling for
I can’t forget I am a sole architect
I built the shadows here
I built the crown of thorns I fear
You know me now but to do better than that
You’ve got to follow me
Boy I’m trying to show you where I’m at

Hey pretty
Don’t you want to take a ride with me?
Through my world
Hey pretty
Don’t you want to kick and slide with me
Through my world
Hey pretty
My pretty baby
Rock it through my world

Hey now
Can’t you feel me longing
Hey now
Me
(You get the gist of the song now?)

Hey pretty don’t you want to take a ride with me?

Possession by Sarah McLachlan

Sarah McLachlan’s ‘Possession’ came on my alarm the other morning–I had forgotten that it has a pretty decent beat once it kicks off. That combined with lyrics about rather…intense…attraction seemed appropriate for scenes.

‘Possession’ written by Sarah McLachlan

Listen as the wind blows from across the great divide
Voices trapped in yearning, memories trapped in time
The night is my companion and solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here and not be satisfied?

And I would be the one to hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes, dear

Through this world I’ve stumbled so many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word, to find the truth enslaved
Oh, you speak to me in riddles and you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, your words keep me alive

And I would be the one to hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes, dear

Into this night I wander, it’s morning that I dread
Another day of knowing of the path I fear to tread
Oh, into the sea of waking dreams, I follow without pride
‘Cause nothing stands between us here and I won’t be denied

And I would be the one to hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes, dear

I’ll hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I’ll take your breath away
And after I’d wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes

Army of Me — Bjork feat Skunk Anansie

When I was looking at the video for last week’s post Bjork’s ‘Army of Me’ came up in the suggested videos.

The lyrics could be interpreted as a female dominant who’s had about enough backchat from her sub.

I’m pretty much in love with it.

It starts with war drums then kicks into a beat reminiscent of The Matrix and then, she’s increasingly done with your nonsense. ‘Sweeping’ and ‘orchestral’ come to mind. But still industrial. It’s what the inside of a FemDom’s head sounds like when it’s punishment time, I feel certain.

Lyrics by Bjork Gudmundsdottir and Graham Vernon Massey

Stand up
You’ve got to manage
I won’t sympathize
Anymore

And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me

You’re alright
There’s nothing wrong
Self sufficiency please!
And get to work

And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me

You’re on your own now
We won’t save you
Your rescue squad
Is too exhausted

And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You’ll meet an army of me

Power is Mine — Lords of Acid

Calling all FemDoms and their lovers. Lords of Acid have entered the building. And they are about to own your happy ass.

I can’t believe it took me so long to remember this group (I was reminded by a post in the BDSM music choices group on FetLife). I got the Voodoo U CD as a teenager and it was unlike anything I had heard. These women were talking about men like they were the commodity. These were women in full control of their sexuality and themselves.

So here we are.

All of their songs seem to have some sort of theme of dominance and submission or sexuality or fetishism. Or all of the above. Aside from the lyrics, the music is electronic or industrial, depending upon your definitions of those. It’s heavier with a nice beat–sometimes driving, sometimes sultry. And works well loud.

Power of Mine seemed a good choice for this post, though. So here are the lyrics, which are by Olivier Adams, Maurice Joseph Engelen and Cornelia Anita Van Lierop.

Male voice:
I know what you like
I know what you need
You want to hear me suffer?
You hold my seat
I kiss the leather of your high heeled shoes
I lick the spaces that you choose
I can see you reaching out for me
I crawl like a lamb that’s my destiny
When it’s over I’m back in my cave
Cause you’re my master and I’m your slave

Female voice:
Dance the dance of lovers
I don’t need no other
To ride the waves of pleasure and pain
Come on boy obey me
Lick my boots to please me
Maybe I will loosen your chains

I can break your will
I can make you kneel
I can force you to crawl
And to lick my heels
Cause the power is mine
Power is mine, power is mine

You need to be punished
And it will never finish
You are just a dog on a leash
Lick me baby lick me
Let me make you happy
But only if you’re begging me ‘please’

I can break your will
I can make you kneel
I can force you to crawl and to lick my heels
Cause the power is mine
Power is mine, power is mine
Power is mine, power is mine

Male voice:
I know what you want
I know what you need
I can tell you by your side
The way that you breathe
Passionate love, lust and bone
I can feel the blood

Pumping in your veins
I feel your nails, going in my chest
No time to relax, no time to rest
I want to be punished I have to obey
Cause you’re my master
And I’m your slave

Love Song for a Vampire – Annie Lennox

A friend who was in the scene years ago said it used to be popular to play Enya while playing. Enya, whose work I do like, seems like an odd choice for scenes, but it made me think of Annie Lennox’s ‘Love Song for a Vampire’, which she wrote for Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula.

I’m not sure how it would be for a scene, but it would be nice for aftercare. Snuggled up with a big, scary D-type.

‘Love Song for a Vampire’

Come into these arms again
And lay your body down
The rhythm of this trembling heart
Is beating like a drum

It beats for you – It bleeds for you
It knows not how it sounds
For it is the drum of drums
It is the song of songs…

Once I had the rarest rose
That ever deigned to bloom.
Cruel winter chilled the bud
And stole my flower too soon.

Oh loneliness – oh hopelessness
To search the ends of time
For there is in all the world
No greater love than mine.

Love, oh love, oh love…
Still falls the rain… (still falls the rain)
Love, oh love, oh, love…
Still falls the night…
Love, oh love, oh love…
Be mine forever…. (be mine forever)
Love, oh love, oh love….

Let me be the only one
To keep you from the cold
Now the floor of heaven’s lain
With stars of brightest gold

They shine for you – they shine for you
They burn for all to see
Come into these arms again
And set this spirit free
