i've tried to go through the numerous "looking-for-sexy-music" questions that are out there, but none seem to deal with the specific type of songs i'm looking for: relaxing, sensual songs, usually slow with sexy female vocals and minimal or unobtrusive instrumentation. think along the lines of unwinding in a steamy shower with a candle burning as opposed to music to have sex to.

iTunes missing tracks filter: What can I do when I see the exclamation mark beside a song in iTunes and when I click on the song, I get the message "Song X could not be used because the original file could not be found. Would you like to locate it?" Then, of course, it can't find it. So I have two questions about this: 1. How can I find the songs that are currently tagged with that exclamation mark? I *know* I haven't deleted them. 2. How do I prevent this from happening in the future? Tech details: Windows 7,about 17,000 songs, if that matters. I'm sorry if this seems elementary, but I can't seem to find a straightforward answer to this in the forums. Thank you *so much* everyone for bearing with me with this simple (but screamingly frustrating) question.

I need suggestions from MeFites! [more inside]

What songs protesting government reaction to 9/11 came out after the event itself and before its 1st anniversary?
I remember the relief of hearing Sage Francis' Makeshift Patriot for the first time in October of 2001. It was the first song that voiced my fear of possible repression in the US. I thought there would be a wave of left-wing protest songs, but it seemed to be more of a trickle. In August of 2002 Sleater-Kinney asked in Combat Rock where the protest songs were. My question is the same as theirs: What songs protesting government reaction to 9/11 came out after the event itself and before its 1st anniversary? I am specifically looking for protest songs by American musicians.

To get over a broken heart (me all in, she in 65%), I'm compiling a song list on Spotify. So far, I've got "In Too Deep" by Genesis and "Some Other Time," by Bill Evans and Tony Bennett. Now I'm stuck. It seems that falling-in-love songs were more accessible to my mind than falling-out-of-love songs. Any suggestions would be greatly if not sorely appreciated. If they help anyone out there, all the better. Thanks.

A few weeks ago I heard a song coming out of my neighbor's window that I remember well from my youth in the late 90s -- or not so well, as it turns out. The singer is Janet Jackson or someone very similar, and the lyrics are something like, 'we can be freak (s) (y)/we won't get much sleep (?)/ blah blah blah early morn. Pretty sexy. Help!

Also like, and sharing the central, longing-filled theme of eagerness/waiting/emotional investment in a relationship that may or may not bear fruit of, Bright Eyes' "Make a Plan to Love Me" and Elliott Smith's "Say Yes". I look forward to you responses! Extra points for nominations falling under the indie umbrella.
