The Sexiest 10 Songs of All Time - Part 4

I have been reluctant to post the latest instalment of my sexy song series for a while because working in legal marketing makes one feel seriously unsexy. You have to be very creative - ie. go on about legal briefs.

Also I seem to be spending a lot of time in a small room with a small kid armed with a piece of plastic that makes a jingling noise of a magnitude inconsistent with its size.

But eventually I reached an earth moving conclusion - the sexy songs must go on so as we can all roll over and get some sleep. So here goes.....

4 - Justify My Love - Madonna



 
Madonna circa 2013 reminds me of a particularly frightening Naples fishwife who works out too much. So it was something of a shock to stumble across this track from 1990, during the time when Madonna generally got her kit off a lot and shocked lots of people. Just a word of warning this video is not very Perry Como and generally lacks old men wearing pullovers hanging out by the fire. It was banned in various places for containing images of a sadomasochistic, voyeuristic and bisexual nature. I am reliably informed no camels were harmed in the making of the video. Also Madonna is really rather hot in it. I'll certainly look around the hallways a bit more the next time I check into the Days Inn.

3 - I'm On Fire - Bruce Springsteen
 
 

You wouldn't normally associate Springsteen with sexy, more blue collar blues, but I'm On Fire is a bit of a departure from the normal Springsteen thing and positively simmers with sexiness. Sure there's the blue collar thing going on - Bruce in oily overalls and then there's the classy chick with the red nail polish, always guaranteed to blow the odd gasket or two, not to mention a very sexy auto. This vid would so not have been the same with a Chrysler Town and Country van. Hey you said you'd get the car back to her in the morning dude, not the middle of the night.

  1. You nailed it with the Madonna song. When my parents bought me the Immaculate Collection when I was 11, I used to pass over this song because it scared me. Ha! The song is just pure sex.

  2. Madonna certainly knows how to get your attention. I think she's remarkable and a good choice for the list.

  4. Both great choices. Springsteen doesn't really do much for me either but I have always been fond of this song. Big Madonna fan and this is one of my all time faves by her...very sexy, other than the S&M bits lol.

  5. I loved the Springsteen song when it came out! I guess I'm one of the few who has never been a fan of Madonna.

  6. The Springsteen song is a great choice. I'm enjoying your commentary about the songs more than the actual songs. :-)
