Top 50 Sexiest Songs of All Time, Part III
Here is part three of the countdown of the 50 sexiest songs of all time, counting down number from 30 to 21. Well maybe not exactly the sexiest, but more like the most popular songs that are talking about baby-makin'. The is a compilation of the highest performing songs that are solely about the subject matter, based on its ranking on the Billboard's Hot 100 over the past 50+ years.
It's hard to argue with the stats, but I find that my personal 'sexy' list would be arranged a little bit differently. Of course, I wasn't even alive when some of these songs were released, so I didn't get to appreciate it when it was in its glory days. Nevertheless, here it is.
Let me know what you think by leaving some comments at the bottom.
Jump Ahead on the List:
#30) Work It by Missy 'Misdemeanor' Elliott
Album: Under Construction
Album Released: November 12, 2002
Tidbits: This song helped bring the slang term 'badonkadonk' into the mainstream vocabulary. My personal favorite lyrics: "...I'm not a prostitute, but I can give you want you want". The elephant trumpet was used to hide some sexual references. Missy also used reversion in a few of her tracks after the success of this song.
#29) Slow Hand by The Pointer Sisters
Album: Black & White
Album Released: 1981
Label: Planet Records
#28) All I want to do is Make Love to You by Heart
Album Released: March 26, 1990
Genre: Hard Rock
#27) Love in this Club by Usher featuring Young Jeezy
Album: Here I Stand
Album Released: May 23, 2008
Tidbit: Rumor has it that the Young Jeezy verse was not originally part of the song. He showed up one night in the studio after Usher had left and laid down a verse. Later, Usher heard the verse and liked it, so it became part of the song. Thickening the plot, Gucci Mane, a Young Jeezy rival, claimed that he was supposed to be on the song until Jeezy came along.
#26) Romantic by Karyn White
Album: Ritual of Love
Album Released: September 10, 1991
Label: Warner Bros.
#25) Smack That by Akon featuring Eminem
Album Released: November 14, 2006
Label: Konvict Muzik
#24) Ignition by R. Kelly
Album: Chocolate Factory
Album Released: February 18, 2003
Label: Jive, Sony
Timeline: This song came out when I was in high school. It's a wonder I'm not totally burnt out on this song, it was every where back then. Of course every time I hear it, it brings back some pretty cool memories...nothing wrong with that.
Getting Lucky Lyrics: "I'm about to take my key, and stick it in the ignition" is golden, of course following that with "Running her hands through my fro/bouncing on 24s" made it timeless.
#23) Do Me! by Bill Biv Devoe
Album Released: March 20, 1990
I Like it Raunchy: "Slap it up, flip it, rub it down, oh no!" This speaks for itself
#22) Freak Me by Silk
Album: Lose Control
Album Released: November 17, 1992
#21) Shake You Down by Gregory Abbott
Album: Shake you Down
Album Released: September 1986
