20 Songs That You You Didn’t Know Were About BDSM (Kind Of)

You see these lists pop up occasionally, and every time they say they are songs that we didn’t know were about BDSM. But you know what? Yes! Yes we did! And you know why? Because it’s so obvious that it is! Whether it’s Depeche Mode’s Master & Servant or Rihanna’s S&M, we know that these songs are about BDSM, but what about the songs on a kinksters playlist that aren’t about BDSM, but somehow magically work? Here are 20 of mine, picked out just for you:

  1. Avril Lavigne & Marilyn Manson – Bad Girl

“Come get it, now or never. I’ll let you do whatever” sings Avril. This one is at the top of my alpabetically-organised song list, and probably rightly so. It’s poppy, catchy and rebellious – perfect for us brats!

Bonus bit: This song starts off with a mention to “Daddy” so it’s definitely, definitely not shying away from our lifestyle!

2. Evanescence – Bring Me To Life

Oddly meditative. That first line “how can you see into my eyes like open doors?” speaks volumes for me, Sir can read me completely. Only he can bring me to life, as it were, and it has always been that way.

3. The Ronettes -Be My Baby

Sir has always loved getting all possessive of me and dancing close every time he hears this song in the 80’s bars, and who am I to complain?

4. Depeche Mode – Corrupt

Mmm-hmm, Sir just loves this song and frankly because of that, so do I. It’s dark, it’s sensual, it’s sexy and it;s much, much better than Master & Servant..

5. Sofia Carlberg – Crazy In Love

This is like the slower BeyoncĂ© version released for Fifty Shades of Grey, but it’s the full song which makes it better in my opinion.

6. The Weeknd – Earned It

Sir just loved this song from the above mentioned movie, he loves to remind me that I deserve someone to love me, care for me and protect me, even if I don’t want it sometimes because I can be fiercely independent and argumentative. Thsat said, I still don’t think I’ve argued with him yet, and won!

7. Kehlani – Gangsta

“I don’t want, what I can get, I want someone with secrets that nobody, nobody, nobody knows”, this song sums up my Sir perfectly, secretive, difficult to get, mysterious and just… yes!

8. Julia Michaels – Heaven

From Fifty Shades Freed, I love this song because bad boys really do bring heaven to you and it really is automatic! This song is soft, sensual, sexy and perfect for relaxing to. Love it!

9. The Weeknd – High For This

I have no idea how or why this ever made our list, but it did. In an odd way, it’s lyrically perfect for any scene. It starts out with “you don’t know, what’s in store, but you know what you’re here for”, which is apt!

10. Annie Lennox – I Put A Spell On You

As soon as I heard this song, it had me smiling. It’s so perfect for Sir and me, but for completely bizarre reasons! I was no in love with Sir that I did all I could to entice and allure him, and it worked! Hehe

11. Depeche Mode – In Chains

“The way you move…”, this song really talks about the desire that submissives feel towards their Dominants.”I know you know what you’re doing to me, I know my hands will never be free.” Need I say more?

12. Depeche Mode – In Your Room

Oh my goodness, yes! If any song deserves to be on a list of “songs that are about BDSM”, this is it. I mean, Dave Gahan literally sings “Will you lead me to your armchair? Or leave me lying here, your favourite darness, your favourite half-light, your favourite consciousness,, your favourite slave”.

13. Madonna – Like A Prayer

I have heard this referred to before as “the sub song”. It seems to be a popular choice amongst kinksters and although not about BDSM, somehow it seems to connect with a lot of us.

14. Ellie Goulding – Love Me Like You Do

This just became a favourite song of ours ever since the first Fifty Shades movie. When you love someone who is damaged, you love them and allow them to love you, however they express love. This speaks well of that and how the love you feel doesn’t fit the rules you’ve read elsewhere.

15. Halsey – Not Afraid Anymore

Again from the Fifty Shades movies, this song has been really helpful with embracing my submission and exploring it more. It’s easy to say it’s messy and complicated and run from it, but this song reminded me to explore it and learn it.

16. Depeche Mode/Marilyn Manson – Person Jesus

It doesn’t matter which version you prefer, I attribute this song to Sir. He is my “personal Jesus”, somebody I look up to and worship and look to for guidance hehe.

17. Sia – Salted Wound

Sir loves this song just for relaxing to after a session. It comes from Fifty Shades of Grey, but it works perfectly just as something soft and relaxing to snuggle to.

18. Depeche Mode – Strangelove

“… strange highs and strange lows, strange love, that’s how my love goes”. In BDSM relationships, the highs and lows would seem utmost bizarre to individuals who aren’t into our dynamics. Why do you feel so happy that you got beaten bu your lover and why are you so mad when they won’t sign your stupid contract, anyway? For me, Strangelove perfectly depicts the fact that in BDSM relationships, the highs and lows do look strange to the outsider!

19. Lil Wayne – Sucker For Pain

Another one from Suicide Squad, I love this song for the fact it talks about chaining someone up and being a.. ahem “sucker for pain”, which I basically am!

20. The Weeknd – Where You Belong

Last but far from least, this definitely has kinky connotations, “And Ima leave my mark just to remind you, where you belong. Give me your all scream as loud as you want”. It was actually written for Fifty Shades of Grey, but sadly not used until the very end of the end credits., meaning a lot of people missed out on hearing this musical masterpiece by the time they’d poured out of the cinema!

Over to you, what songs make you think of BDSM (but aren’t necessarily to do with BDSM)?
