FMD 10-6-17: Let’s Get It On

Today's topic: sexy songs. I know we tend to keep polite company 'round these parts, so let's not get all tawdry or anything, but it's a legitimate topic, and I think especially so when it comes to music.

I think one of the more interesting elements of this question is how sexiness can transcend genres. There are country songs I think of as sexy (Chris Young's "Gettin' You Home), indie songs I think of as sexy ("Grey or Blue" by Jaymay), rock ("You Shook Me All Night Long"), etc. They can be small and intimate (Norah Jones' "Turn Me On") or loud and hot. I'll leave you with one of the later, while you mull the question: what songs are sexy to you?

    Oops, sorry about that. Newbish got a hold of my iPod...

  6. I always thought INXS "Need You Tonight" was a sexy song. Micheal Hutchence's smoldering voice over the top of a slick, pulsing back beat .

    1. I saw a chunk of a Behind The Music or some VH1 type or something, and they were interviewing like an old manager or record label employee, or something. Anyway, she was saying something to the effect of, oh if Michael Hutchence picked you out (referring to groupies and the like) for the night, you were in for a real special experience. It was suuuuuper weird and creepy.
