Evil, Sexy Tango

Three of my favorite songs share a similar sort of vibe, a vibe that I tend to think of as sort of tango-like, but with a sort of snarling, sinister edge. I'd like to find more stuff like this so that I could make a mix tape in this vein. [more inside]

I miss cassette MixTapes! How to correctly tag/import into Itunes

Itunes 11.1.5 MAC OS X 10.7.5 --- I made a mixtape with a hodgepodge of MP3's that I downloaded from here & there.

I wanna do bad things with you.

A friend of mine is looking for "awesome, sexy, scary, dark, Halloween-type songs that [she] can do burlesque to." She's thinking along the lines of the theme song from True Blood, although she's already done a routine to that song. So please, you masters of mixes, give us your scary-sexiest songs.

Suggestions for mixtape?

Help for playlist? Every year I make a mixed tape/cd for my brother for Christmas. This year the theme seems to be "almost annoying pop songs that you would never buy yourself but you know you sing along to" and "cool songs that you didnt think to buy yourself." So far I have call me maybe, never ever getting back togther, womanizer by britney spears, telephone by lady gaga, and e.t. by katy perry, for the first half. I have long skirt/short jacket by cake, seven nation army by the white stripes, another way to die by jack white and alicia keys, and oh my by gin wigmore. Can anyone suggest a couple more tunes to round out my mix tape? Thanks!
