Put simply this should be retitled the 50 suckiest sex songs of all time. According to the list Let's Get Physical by Olivia Newton John is the sexiest song ever. Says who? My dad who had a big crush on her back in the day.
Unless you happen to find that late 70s, early 80s workout video look sexy, I doubt if you will concur with this list. Nor does a song have to be directly about sex to be sexy. Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer may have lots of rude meanings but that doesn't make it a great song to make out to.
Still I never knew that about Prince's Raspberry Beret having always assumed it was about a girl who wore a red beret. There are perils to having such an innocent mind....um.
My top 10 countdown list is purely subjective but, at the very least I'm hopeful it's better than the billboard one. Try not to die of anticipation by the time we get to Number 1.
10 - Etta James - I Just Want to Make Love To You
James' clear, soluful and sultry voice makes this the most rrrrrrrr version of this song, in my humble opinion.
9 - Need You Tonight - INXS
The first time I heard this song and INXS hit my radar was as an undergraduate. I always associate its breathlessly sexy sound and lyrics with those parties. Like Jim Morrison of the doors, who he seems to be emulating, Michael Hutchence was clearly thinking 'come on baby light my fire.' Also see I is for INXS. Another cup of tea anyone?
