The Sexiest 10 Songs of All Time - Part 2

So my rather subjective list of the sexiest songs ever goes on and no there's not going to be a place for Barry White, the walrus of lurve. Too much of a cliche - sorry. As far as Marvin Gaye goes - watch this space.

Sexy is in the eye, or in this case, the ear of the beholder, so a song may not be overly sexy to put one in the mood - if you know what I mean. Neither of these song would probably appear in anyone else's top 10.

8 - Say It Right - Nelly Furtado


This song is pretty stylish and sexy for a vertically challenged Portuguese Canadian, although I have never seen it appear in any list of sexy songs. The sound is apparently based on Eurythmics from the 1980s...speaking of which...


7 - Love is a Stranger - Eurythmics




Love is a Stranger is my favorite Eurythmics song, even if the video with Annie dressed as a man and that sinister hand puppet is anything but sexy.  The heavy breathing is none too subtle either, but all and all Love is a Stranger is still a seriously sexy song that goes straight to the paradoxical heart of love. So there.

  1. Tempt you in and drive you far away...but NOT by that puppet. Most freaky. Good choice David!

  3. I love that Nelly Furtado song. Every time I hear it, I think of Chicago. I spent the summer of 2006 in Chicago with my cousins and that song would play on the radio every five minutes. So it reminds me of a bustling downtown and shopping sprees and visiting museums. Lol.

    It was my first time hearing the second song. Very cool.
