I need music that says, "Make a move on me already!"

Songs that say--"hey, come and get it already!"

I'm looking for songs with lyrics along the lines of telling someone to hurry up and make a move on you already.

I love alternative, hip-hop/rap, metal, classic rock. I love songs with female singers and would love sexy, "come and get it" type recommendations. Not a huge fan of pop music unless it is exceedingly well done. The song that always pops into my head for this is Weezer's "I Want You To," but I find it pretty annoying unfortunately.

I don't think this is quite about going from zero to making a move, but Lizzie West's Rope Me in And Smoke Me is about urging someone to come and get it.

I Want You To Want Me by Cheap Trick puts it out there pretty succinctly (even though the lead singer is male).

The Donnas catalog has a number of songs like this. Take If Off is a pretty good example.

Wait what? I thought that was a breakup song!

More ambivalent than what you're looking for, but: Aaliyah, "Try Again"

Yes... but it's sexy...


like that whole album.

Pretty sure beyonce's "green light" is a breakup song too ("you're holding up traffic, green means go!"). "check on it" might work though!

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, "Rich"

I'm rich, like a hot noise
Rich, rich, rich
I'll take you out, boy
So stuck up
I wish you'd stick it to me
Flesh ripped up


It's a little more direct than "Sugar Walls."

"Take me Out," Franz Ferdinand. Gaga's "Teeth."

"First Taste," Fiona Apple. Okay, I'm done now! Really!

Hmm...a song that says Come and Get It. How about Come and Get It?

Yeah, the Donnas probably have a ton of these. You Don't Wanna Call is the one I've heard.

Here I Am by UB40, or perhaps Sexual Healing as performed by Ben Harper (Come take control . . .)

A girl once sang Lady Gaga's "Love Game" to me (specifically, the line "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.") It didn't work -- I was young and awkward, and fantastically awful at reading signals.

Ooh, Mirah was a great suggestion. She has a few other songs that I think might be closer to what you're looking for than Cold Cold Water is:

Make It Hot - Mirah
Apples In The Trees - Mirah
La Familia - Mirah

Some other suggestions:

Lusty - Lamb
All In Your Hands - Lamb
Fucking Boyfriend - The Bird And The Bee
Okay Cupid - Kitty Pryde

And not quite right but somehow feels like it belongs:

Cable TV - Fol Chen

Not sure if this is alternative enough, but David Gray's song Babylon has the lyric "If you want it, come and get it, for crying out loud", which I think sounds appropriately impatient.

Rooster - Come Get Some?

There is the song Come and Get It itself, though it has a more erm transactional vibe.

Basement Jaxx, Get Me Off. This is music that eschews subtlety.

Rihanna, Rude Boy

Come here, rude boy, boy; can you get it up?
Come here rude boy, boy; is you big enough?
Take it, take it baby, baby
Take it, take it; love me, love me

These are so great, guys! I really enjoyed the Beyonce song and the Bird and the Bee one in particular. I could mark all as best answer but it would be redundant. I'm loving all the new music. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Oops, actually, Oompa Loompa is right: "Green Light" is a breakup song.

I have listened to it a million times and thought she was saying, "You have the green light, come and get it." But it's more like, "You have the green light to move your ass along."

Sorry... I figured I should follow up in case this is going on a Make a Move on Me Already! mix tape.

If Dance Hall Crashers - Next To You isn't just about perfect for this brief, I don't know what is...

Poe - Could've Gone Mad
Go ahead and make yourself comfortable darlin'
I gotta proposition for you
there's a room available inside of my heart
and I hope it will be taken by you


though that might be a little bit more "forward" than you're looking for.
