The Fifty Shades of Grey erotic trilogy has become one of the fastest-selling book series in recent history and now Universal Music Enterprises has created its own offering that could very well be considered the soundtrack to the books, a compilation dubbed 15 TONES.  I love the album cover - check it out above!

The album offers a variety of sensual tracks, ranging all the way from classical (pieces by Chopin, DeBussy) to jazz and soul (Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, Marvin Gaye), and everything in between (Bell Biv Devoe's "Do Me," Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love.")


1. Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye
2. The Flower Duet from Lakme – performed by Katherine Jenkins featuring Kiri Te Kanawa and the Philharmonia Orchestra (L. Delibes)
3. Sex (I’m A...) – Berlin
4. Addicted To Love – Robert Palmer
5. Do Me! - Bell Biv Devoe
6. I'm Qualified To Satisfy You – Barry White
7. Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine, Pt. 1 – James Brown
8. Canon and Gigue in D Major – performed by The English Concert and Trevor Pinnock (J. Pachelbel)
9. What Is This Thing Called Love – Billie Holiday
10. I Put A Spell On You – Nina Simone
11. I’ve Got You Under My Skin – Ella Fitzgerald
12. Come Fly With Me – Shirley Horn
13. Nocturne No. 1 in B flat Minor, Opus 9 No. 1 – performed by Tamás Vásáry(F. Chopin)
14. Chained – Marvin Gaye
15. La Fille Aux Cheveux De Lin – performed by Philippe Cassard (C. DeBussy)
