Alt.Latino's Songs Of Lust And, Well, More Lust

Last week, we assembled a workout mixtape. This time around, we're pulling together songs for a different kind of workout. Lust, sex, passion, desire: We're not talking about love songs here, people. We have a rockera who makes the best of a situation many would find awkward, a Colombian musician who reminisces fondly about what happened last night, and a Spanish rapper who tries hard to forget. Warning: Many of these songs contain explicit language.

You might notice that we're a little heavy on Spain in today's show. We usually try to include songs from all over the world, but this week's picks just happen to include a lot of lusty Spanish tunes. We're counting on you, our listeners, to improve on our choices with your own additions. So don't be shy: Offer your picks for boudoir-friendly jams in the comments section below.

And, for you romantics out there, worry not: Next week's show features great love songs in Latin rock music. So if you have any suggestions for that, be sure to let us know.
