maybe i just enjoy 7th chords more than most, or maybe my love for 7ths is actually an obsession. but for some reason, i find 7th chords to be extremely sexy and pretty sounding

i abuse them in my writing, and i immediately love just about any song that uses them intensely (examples below)

is there some actual reason as to why theyre so much sexier/prettier sounding than regular chords?

I personally don't really like maj7 all that much relative to other chords, and I also don't find those tunes particularly maj7 ish. I find them a bit more m9 and maj9y. But I think I think sexy could work as a description, but maybe m9 is a bit more sexy to me. The 9s are actually pretty awesome.
