Ambrosio's Personal Favorites

You can tell I do a lot of sensual scenes.
  • Enya (for sensual scenes)
  • Philip Glass (when I want to feel Evil!)
  • Roy Orbison's "Love Hurts" (as a prelude.)
  • Patsy Cline's "Please Release Me" (as a prelude.)
  • Angelo Balalamenti (Twin Peaks, Julie Cruise)
  • Ani DiFranco with the Buffalo Philharmonic "Joyful Girl" (My favorite singer-songwriter. Most of her work doesn't lend itself well to BDSM but I think this one does.)
  • Georges Bizet "Habanera" and "Seguedille et duo" from Carmen. (I love Julia Mignes Johnson's performance from the Francesco Rosi film.)
  • Ennio Morricone The Mission soundtrack.
  • The Ninth Gate soundtrack
