Is this playlist safe for work?

Underneath the covers, darling.


We don songs like scarves, like dresses, like scarlet bowties, and wear them for a while. We trill them while we cook in our underwear, we murmur them in lovers' ears and we cry them aloud as we recklessly bike down hills under stars. Musicians borrow, too, and we see their outlines flare up with the aura of a long-dead torch singer, their eyes go lambent and dark with unfamiliar charisma.

So, dear, play these songs for a spell. 18 tunes, by Bat for Lashes, the White Stripes, and Ted Leo.
