36: “Let Me Do It To You” by JJ Cale

Smoove like butta.On one end, there’s the skillful navigation of the ambiguities inherent in romance, and on the other end, there’s the option of smacking a girl on the head with a club and dragging her back to your cave.

Nestled somewhere in that spectrum, is the lyrical masterpiece, “Let Me Do It To You,” by JJ Cale.  From Troubador (1976).

Words, sticks, stones… who needs them when you can play that special someone a song like this?
