Sexiest Songs Of All Time???

It's been a while since I felt the urge to write a music post. Well, earlier in this week, I ran across something that stirred, if not outright riled my inner DJ! (LOL) It all started when Malcolm, my blogging buddy over at Pop Culture Dish, shared the first 5 songs on Billboard Magazine's List of the "50 Sexiest Songs of All Time."

Upon my review of the entire list, which ranks Olivia Newton-John's "Physical" at number 1 and the Captain & Tennille's "Do Me One More Time" at number 10. My reaction was they've gotta be kidding! Okay, actually my reaction was more along the lines of, "ain't no way in hell" but anyway, you get the point.

So I've been thinking, if I were to compile a list of "The Sexiest Songs," which songs might be on it? Well, you'd best believe NOTHING by the Captain & Tennille. Even though I do like their music, as well as Olivia's, it's hardly sexy. I mean, really . . .

No, I'm thinking at the top of my list would be some Maxwell and some Marvin! Yeah, right up there at Number 1 would probably be Max's "Til The Cops Come Knocking." Coming in at a close second would be Marvin Gaye's "Come Get To This." At 3 and 4 would be Aretha's version of "Something He Can Feel" and Labelle's "Lady Marmalade." At number 5 would probably be Smokey Robinson and the Miracle's "Oo Baby, Baby."

Even though I might tinker a bit with the order, those would definitely be some of my top sexy song choices, but what about you? What songs would rank at the top of your own list of Top Sexiest Songs of All Time?

I don't see how "Physical" topped Billboard's list. As for the sexiest songs that would make my list, here are 5 (in no particular order):

The Secret Garden by Quincy Jones, Al B. Sure, James Ingram, El DeBarge, and Barry White

Come and Go with Me by Teddy Pendergrass

Between the Sheets by The Isley Brothers

Fire and Desire by Rick James and Teena Marie

When You Touch Me by Skyy

Okay I'm going with,
Lost Without You by Robin Thicke
How Does it Feel by D'Angelo
and anything by Maxwell. You're right, the brother can SANG!

@Malcolm, I like all of the songs on your list. I'm thinking something by Teddy would go on my Sexiest Songs List, but don't know if "Come Go With Me" would be the one. If all those you listed, "Secret Garden" would probably be my pick for "sexiest."

@Katrina, You know what makes D'Angelo's "How Does It Feel?" sexy? The video! Goodness, when it comes to the video for that song, I don't even need the sound . . . :-)
