Top 50 Sexiest Songs of All Time, Part IV
Here is part four of the countdown of the 50 sexiest songs of all time, counting down from number 20 to 11. 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:
#20) Afternoon Delight by Starland Vocal Band
Album: Starland Vocal Band
Album Released: 1976
Label: RCA Records
#19) Candy Shop by 50 Cent featuring Olivia
Album: The Massacre
Album Released: March 3, 2005
Labels: Aftermath/ Interscope/ Shady
My Two-Cents: Granted this song is probably not the most original, well written, or well sung song out there, but I like the hell out of it. This is almost my baby-makin' music. I say almost because my fiancée despises this song, i.e. I don't get to listen to it lol. Back in the single days though, this song signified game time.
My Favorite Lyric: "I melt in your mouth girl, not in your hand" Again, not exactly original or classy for that matter, but hey, I like it.
#18) The First Night by Monica
Album: The Boy Is Mine
Album Released: July 14, 1998
Lyrical Challenge: "I want to get down, but not the first night" Playing hard to get I see.
#17) Ring My Bell by Anita Ward
Album: Songs of Love
Album Released: 1979
Label: TK Records
#16) Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado featuring Timbaland
Album Released: June 9, 2006
Genre: Pop, Dance
Label: Geffen, MMG
Favorite Lyric: "Wait... I don't mean no harm/ I can see you with my T-shirt on." The only thing sexier than a woman in nothing but a t-shirt is probably Nelly Furtado in nothing but a t-shirt. Wow, she makes me want to move to Canada.
Fun Tidbit: Nelly Furtado and Tim Clayton (both wrote this song) refer to this song as the 'Blackberry Song' because every line is something that could be sent as a message while chasing that promiscuous mate.
#15) You're Making Me High by Toni Braxton
Album Released: June 18, 1996
#14) I Wanna Sex You Up by Color Me Badd
Album Released: July 23, 1991
Labels: Giant Records, Reprise Records
Fun Fact: When the song was originally released, the large majority of radio stations edited out the word sex. A lot of DJ's will refer to this song as I Wanna Love you Up because of this.
#13) Bad Girls by Donna Summer
Album: Bad Girls
Album Released: April 25, 1979
#12) Lollipop by Lil Wayne
Album: Tha Carter III
Album Released: June 10, 2008
Genre: Rap/ Hip-Hop
Labels: Cash Money, Universal, Young Money
Who Knew: Who would've guessed that a song that was about nothing more than an 'oral fixation' would not only be played on the radio, but be one of the hottest songs of 2008. Remember that not too long ago, radio stations were editing the word sex out of songs. It's amazing how times have changed.
That's odd: Remember how I said that my fiancée hated 50 Cent's Candy Shop? You would think it would be safe to assume that she would equally dislike this song since it's essentially on the same sexual level. However, she loves this song, which is cool since I like the song, but still. How can you like one and not the other.
Extra Credit: Though this is somewhat off subject of this page, if you like Lil Wayne's Lollipop then you should check out Framing Hanley's version as well as Right Side of the Tree's version. Framing Hanley has a pretty awesome rock version, and Right Side of the Tree has an acoustic version that is killer.
#11) Honky Tonk Women by The Rolling Stones
Album: Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2)
Album Released: September 12, 1969
Best Lines: "The lady then she covered me with roses/ She blew my nose and then she blew my mind"
