Bedroom Boom: Five Albums for Gettin' it on

Draw the curtains, dim down the lighting and turn up the music with these five top albums for lovemaking.

Marvin Gaye - Let's Get It On

No CD collection - or romantic night in - is complete without the classic 1973 album, Let's Get It On, from the love man himself Marvin Gaye.

Described as one of the most "sexually-charged albums ever recorded", let Gaye's smooth, soulful tone accompany you through the night with tracks such as You Sure Love to Ball, Just to Keep You Satisfied, and of course, the self-titled single Let's Get It On.

Frank Ocean - Channel Orange

One of the fresh faces to the music scene, Grammy-winning R&B singer Frank Ocean, could be regarded as a modern-day Marvin Gaye, with silky vocals and suggestive lyrics to match.

Ocean's debut album Channel Orange is filled with future lovemaking classics such as Thinkin Bout You, Pyramids and Forrest Gump.

Van Morrison - Astral Weeks

Placed in many 'best album of all-time lists', Astral Weeks is one Van Morrison album that takes sensuality and nostalgia to the next level.

Top tracks to play include Beside You, Sweet Thing, The Way Young Lovers Do and Cyprus Avenue.

Prince - Diamonds and Pearls

You can never go wrong with Prince, with the flamboyant musician setting the perfect tone and delivering the goods with hits such as When Doves Cry, Kiss and The Most Beautiful Girl in the World.

If you have to narrow his 25 studio album collection to just one for lovemaking, pick Diamonds and Pearls. This has the singles Insatiable, Cream and Gett Off.

Sade - Diamond Life

The sultry tones of British singer Sade Adu are all you need to get the night off to the perfect start, with tracks such as By Your Side, No Ordinary Love and The Sweetest Taboo lovers' favourites.

Line up the 1984 debut album Diamond Life to play hits including Smooth Operator, Hang On to Your Love and Your Love is King.
