The 69 Steamiest Tunes

Sex Songs: The 69 Steamiest Tunes ... Ever

From George Michael to Madonna, everyone loves a good sex song. These timeless tracks are not your typical sentimental love tunes -- they're all about getting in the mood. Do you agree with this list of sexy songs? After reading through the picks, leave a comment on which sexy songs should have made the cut.

69. George Michael, 'I Want Your Sex'

In '87, when the man from Wham! dropped this seductive hit (which he then claimed was about monogamy), many thought it was his attempt to woo the pants off of actress Brooke Shields. Once he got caught looking for gay nookie in public bathrooms years later, many realized they'd thought wrong. -- M. Tye Comer
Sexiest Lyric: "Don't you know I love you 'til it hurts me baby/Don't you think it's time you had sex with me?"

68. Nelly Furtado, 'Promiscuous'
Nelly told us that this song title -- and that of her 2006 album 'Loose' -- refers to her "really relaxed and free" approach to making music. Sounds nice, but after hearing the song's deliciously irresponsible lyrics, we can't help but think that she didn't tell us the whole story. -- Kim Davis
Sexiest Lyric: "Promiscuous boy, you already know/That I'm all yours. What you waiting for?"

67. Mazzy Star, 'Fade Into You'
More sensitive than sexy, this sad and sultry 1994 alterna-hit is the soundtrack to candlelit dorm-room grope sessions across the country. It's still the go-to track when theater majors are looking to score. -- Jason Persse
Sexiest Lyric: "I want to hold the hand inside you/I want to take a breath that's true"

66. Ludacris, 'Fantasy' 
Hip-hop can always be counted on for its candor, and it doesn't get more blunt than Luda's play-by-play quest for some cut in anyplace but the bedroom. Like Burger King, the Lova Lova's fans can have it their way. -- Donya Blaze
Sexiest Lyric: "How 'bout in the library on top of books/But you can't be too loud."

65. DiVinyls, 'I Touch Myself'
DiVinyls brought masturbation to the mainstream with this not-so-subtle 1991 ode to diddling. Once they caught a glimpse of singer Chrissy Amphlett's cleavage in the video, teenage boys everywhere brought the lyrics to life at least twice a day. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "I don't want anybody else/When I think about you I touch myself ..."

64. T. Rex, 'Bang a Gong'
One of the greatest anthems of England's early-'70s glam rock explosion, this is sexy stomping music for boys in leather boots and mascara. Substitute some other words for "gong" and you get the point. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Well you're dirty and sweet/Clad in black, don't look back and I love you/You're dirty and sweet, oh yeah..."

63. Marvin Gaye, 'Sexual Healing'
Health insurance is for suckers. According to the Demigod of Sexy's 1982 smash, all you need is some sweet lovemaking each day to keep the doctor away. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Come take control, just grab a hold of my body and mind/Soon we'll be making it, honey, oh we're feeling fine..."

62. Goldfrapp, 'Ooh La La'
Part gritty glam throwback, part electro-disco pant-a-thon, this 2006 tune finds saucy singer Alison Goldfrapp proclaiming her cravings for "ooh la la la la." It remains one of the kinkiest songs to ever be coaxed from a keyboard. -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "Switch me on, turn me up/Don't want it Baudelaire, just glitter lust"

61. Mtume, 'Juicy Fruit'
The beat for this '80s jam is sensual in itself (just ask Biggie, who ripped it for his debut single 'Juicy' in '94), but add to that lead singer Tawatha Agee's breathy repetitions of "I like It," and you've got a musical striptease that stands the test of time. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "Candy rain coming down/Taste you in my mind and spread you all around."

60. Madonna, 'Like a Virgin'
It sounds tame compared to some of her later stuff, but in '84, Madonna's tune for being "touched for the very first time" blew the minds and eardrums of most parents. Its video also inspired teenage girls everywhere to dress like total whores (much to the delight of teenage boys). -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "Gonna give you all my love boy, my fear is fading fast/Been saving it all for you, cuz only love can last"

59. Joan Jett, 'Do You Wanna Touch Me'
On her first album after quitting jailbait band the Runaways, Joan Jett asked the dumbest question ever. Rocker guys and riot grrrls everywhere screamed "Yes!" in unison. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Right or wrong/Don't it turn you on/Can't you see we're wastin time, yeah..."

58. Keith Urban, 'Raining on Sunday'
Before he tied the knot with Nicole Kidman, country's sexiest stud generated heat with his female fans with this provocative song from 2002's 'Golden Road' album. He blames Mother Nature for staying in bed all day ... as if he needed an excuse. -- Beville Darden
Sexiest Lyric: "Oh surrender is much sweeter when we both let it go/Let the water wash our bodies clean and love wash our souls"

57. Portishead, 'Glory Box'
The pulsing trip-hop rhythms and swooning symphonic swells are inspiring, but it's singer Beth Gibbons' bluesy plea for "a reason be a woman" that made this song the perfect soundtrack for after-party passion in 1994. -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "I've been a temptress too long/Just ... give me a reason to love you"

56. Dave Matthews Band, 'Crash Into Me'
Whether you believe this DMB hit to be a lover's heartfelt ode to his paramour or the sick musings of a peeping tom on the prowl, 'Crash' is no doubt a song about claws-coming-out, bodies-slamming-into-bodies sex. -- BD
Sexiest Lyric: "Hike up your skirt a little more/And show the world to me"

55. Romeo Void, 'Never Say Never'
If you're only gonna write one hit, it may as well be a song about getting laid. Twenty-six years after its release, this salacious new-wave rocker is still the surefire way to get the hands groping on alt-rock dancefloors. -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "I might like you better if we slept together"

54. Christina Aguilera, 'Dirrty'
Before "Baby Jane" started biting Marilyn Monroe's steez, we had "Xtina" -- the x-rated diva who called her 2002 album 'Stripped' and dressed for the part. As if the song wasn't steamy enough, its video treated us to more ass-baring chaps and straddling maneuvers than a rodeo. -- KD
Sexiest Lyric: "I need that (uh!) to get me off/Sweat until my clothes come off"

53. David Bowie, 'China Girl'
When Bowie reinvented himself (again) in the early '80s, the ladies melted over his drug-free physique and his sweet collection of linen suits. But everyone melted when they saw the song's video, which features David rolling around in the surf with a naked Asian model. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "And when I get excited, my little China girl says/'Oh baby, just you shut your mouth'/She says, 'shhhhhhhhh ..."

52. Diana Ross, 'Love Hangover'
You know the loving is good when you're still thinking about it the next day. Part slow jam, part disco boogie, this 1976 hit from the original Dreamgirl articulated the morning after high that hurts oh so good. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "Think about it all the time/Never let it out of my mind"

51. Peaches, 'AA XXX'
Set to a slammin' electro beat, Peaches' raunchy request for an innocent young stud is so raw, you might get salmonella on the dancefloor. Something tells us this porno-feminist crusader always gets to be on top. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "I like the innocent type/Deer in the headlight, rocking me all night, flexing his might/Doing it right, keeping me tight, taking a bite out of the Peach tonight"

50. Maxwell, 'Til the Cops Come Knockin''
Don't let his slim physique and curly mane fool you. The true way to tell a man's stamina is by the length of his ... song. Maxwell's '96 debut clocks in at almost seven minutes -- twice that of the average radio cut -- and promises to "lock you up in love for days." -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "Was it enough to penetrate your dark world/Or were you embarrassed about the way you freaked?"

49. Teddy Pendergrass, 'Turn Off the Lights'
It's hard to believe that Chef from 'South Park' didn't write this song. Candles, showers, hot oil -- the only thing missing from this frighteningly literal song is some Courvoisier and a cigarette at the end. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Let's take a shower, shower together, yeah/I'll wash your body and you'll wash mine, yeah"

48. Enigma, 'Sadness Pt. 1'
In 1990, the robe-wearing Eurotrash outfit known as Enigma rode this track to No. 1 in 24 countries, mainly because all that French moaning and Latin chanting sounds really, really naughty. It's actually about the Marquis de Sade's morality or something, but who the hell cares? -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Procedamus in pace/In nomine Christi, Amen"

47. Aaliyah, 'Rock the Boat'
Way before OnStar, the late Aaliyah finessed an aquatic rhythm and lyrics ripe with innuendo to guide a potential driver down the channel of love. Fellas, if you ever need proof that it's okay to ask for directions, peep the line below. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "That's too slow/Go ahead and put that thing in overdrive."

46. Frankie Goes to Hollywood, 'Relax'
The world's first-ever hit single by a bunch of openly gay leather boys, this 1983 ode to not "losing your head" beat the tantric sex movement by more than a decade. The only thing that didn't last long was the band's career. --JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Relax don't do it/When you want to suck it to it/Relax don't do it/ When you want to come"

45. Bob Dylan, 'Lay Lady Lay'
The words "Dylan" and "sexy" rarely appear in the same paragraph, but this low-key '69 song gets frisky, ex-hippie parents who still use the term "lovemaking" all hot and bothered. Besides, he says the word "lay" 12 times! -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed/Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile"

44. AC/DC, 'You Shook Me All Night'
A rollicking tale of an Australian rocker getting between some "American thighs," this hip-shaking mullet anthem has been fogging up pickup-truck windows since 1980. An entire generation of Joe Bobs and Little Ozzies was conceived to this song. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "She wanted no applause, just another course/Made a meal out of me and came back for more"

43. Berlin, 'Sex I'm a ...'
In 1982, four years before they made the touchy-feely soundtrack to the 'Top Gun' PG sex scene, new wave band Berlin turned out this NC-17 moaner in which lead singer Terri Nunn proclaims that once you get her in bed, she'll be whatever your heart desires. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Let's get lost in that magic place all alone now/Drink your fill from my fountain of love, wet your lips"

42. Bee Gees, 'Love You Inside Out'
If you really think about it, this disco-era falsetto jam has the dirtiest title on this list, but that's nothing compared to those porntastic wakka-wakka guitars. This 1979 No. 1 hit left a whole nation covered in silk robes and massage oil. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "I ain't no vision, I am the man who loves you inside and out/Backwards and forwards, with my heart hanging out

41. Prince, 'Darling Nikki'
In 1985, 'Darling Nikki' was the nastiest song most of suburban America had ever heard. And everyone thought it was hot -- everyone except Tipper Gore, who started a pro-censorship movement after she heard the song in her 12-year-old daughter's room. Sounds like Al should have given her a little more global warming. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "I knew a girl named Nikki, I guess u could say she was a sex fiend/I met her in a hotel lobby masturbating with a magazine"

40. Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, 'Let's Make Love'
Country's first couple has steamed up the charts with many a lovey-dovey duet, but this 1999 track is their most seductive. The title says it all, as Mr. and Mrs. McGraw trade lines about spending an entire night in intimate bliss. -- BD
Sexiest Lyric: "Let's make love all night long/Until all our strength is gone/Hold on tight, just let go/I want to feel you in my soul"

39. Sade, 'No Ordinary Love'
Everything about Sade Adu is sexy -- from her curiously spelled name to her oversized forehead to her smoky voice. In fact, the whole point of this song is that regular people are unworthy of Sade's love. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "I gave you all the love I got, I gave you more than I could give/I gave you love, I gave you all that I have inside"

38. Rod Stewart, 'Do Ya Think I'm Sexy'
Rod caught a lot of heat for going disco with this 1978 recap of a one-night stand. All was forgiven when guys realized that the song was so hot, it made women willing to sleep with a guy that looked like, well, Rod Stewart. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "If you really need me just reach out and touch me/Come on sugar let me know"

37. Bel Biv DeVoe, 'Do Me'
Who needs sweet nothings when you can get dirty talk after dark? Enter original New Edition members Bell Biv DeVoe, who ditched their squeaky clean images with this bad boy anthem that simultaneously turned candy girls into sex-crazed women. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "Ooh that booty/ Smack it up, flip it, rub it down/Oh no!"

36. Aretha Franklin, 'Natural Woman'
Back in '67, '(You Bring Me to) Multiple Orgasms' probably wouldn't have made it past the Standards and Practices division at Atlantic Records. So songwriter Carole King used one of those "euphemism" things instead, providing the Queen of Soul with her signature anthem and a generation of women with their ultimate mating song. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Oh, baby, what you've done to me, you make me feel so good inside/And I just want to be close to you, you make me feel so alive"

35. Chris Isaak, 'Wicked Game'
Back in 1991, the guy could sing his grocery list and the ladies would drop everything (and we mean everything). At least Chris gave the 'Wicked Game' video a little something for the fellas, too: a wet, topless Helena Christensen. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "The world was on fire, no one could save me but you/Strange what desire will make foolish people do"

34. INXS, 'Need You Tonight'
How hot was Michael Hutchence? The man swaggered around shirtless in skin-tight leather pants like Jim Morrison reincarnated -- and even made a perm work. No one knew what "your moves are so raw" meant in '87, but Mike made it sound so very dirty. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "I need you tonight, 'cause I'm not sleeping/There's something about you girl, that makes me sweat"

33. Liz Phair, 'Flower'
Liz let all her dirty-minded lust hang out on this semi-spoken-word come-on. Most of the lyrics are unprintable on a family-friendly Web site, but suffice it to say that indie record store clerks everywhere got their glasses all fogged up. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Your face reminds me of a flower, kind of like you're underwater/Hairs too long and in your eyes, your lips a perfect suck-me size"

32. Jodeci, 'Freek N You'
While Boyz II Men were charming soccer moms with their on-bended-knee-R&B, Jodeci was bumping and pelvic-thrusting their way into said daughters' bedrooms. If the radio version wasn't clear enough, listen to the album for an extended, uh, love session. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "I can go on for days, but I couldn't go on for weeks babe/I could even play with another body, but it wouldn't last 'cause I'm a freak"

31. Luther Vandross, 'Love Won't Let Me Wait'
No one covers a song like Luther. With his silky tenor and trademark "woo-woos," he turned this 70's Major Harris tune into a quiet storm staple. Even the harp strings, saxophone solo and piano chords feel like foreplay on wax. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "I need your love so desperately, and only you can set me free /When I make love to you, we'll explo-o-o-de in ecstasy"

30. Starland Vocal Band, 'Afternoon Delight'
Some would call this ultra-whitebread 1976 hit "creepy" rather than sexy, and the repeated use of the word 'rubbin'' does make us think of old-people sex. But any song that actually inspired an entire country to indulge in some daytime action must have done something right. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ignite/And the thought of rubbin' you is getting so exciting"

29. Patti LaBelle, 'Lady Marmalade'
The fact that it's been covered by everyone from the O'Jays to Christina and Lil' Kim proves the staying power of this proto-disco funk jam. But in the hands of soul sister LaBelle, who originally released the song in '74, the bawdy tale about finding love in the Moulin Rouge is naughtier than anything Nicole Kidman could ever act up. -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "Voulez vous coucher avec moi, ce soir?"

28. The Beatles, 'I Want You'
Fourteen non-dirty words repeated over and over for eight minutes -- not exactly the recipe for hotness. But in the hands of John Lennon, the only remotely sexy Beatle, this '69 epic became a monster of lusty, panting desperation. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "I want you, I want you so bad/It's driving me mad, it's driving me mad"

27. Tweet, 'Oops (Oh My)'
Most sexy songs describe an act between two people (or more), but it was Missy Elliott's protégé Tweet who made going solo attractive. She later said the hit was more about self-respect than stimulation, but we were all too busy stroking our "esteem" to notice. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "I tried and I tried to avoid, but this thing was happening/Swallow my pride, let it ride and party"

26. Massive Attack, 'Inertia Creeps'
Trip-hop doesn't get more sinister or seductive than this slow-burning groover from the group's 1998 'Mezzanine' album. Fuzzed out guitars, breathy raps and eerie electronics writhe together in a way that would even make Moby try to cop a feel. -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "Recollect me darling, raise me to your lips/Two undernourished egos, four rotating hips"

25. The Notorious B.I.G., 'One More Chance'
Sure, he helped start the video cliché of a rapper lying in bed with two women. But we forgave him because of the way he flipped DeBarge's 'Stay With Me' into one of the coolest hip-hop player anthems ever. Plus, how many guys do you know that call themselves "ugly as ever" and still get the girl? -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "The sex was just immaculate/From the back, I get deeper and deeper"

24. Rolling Stones, 'Let's Spend the Night Together'
In '67, this jam was too damn hot for TV audiences, and Mick Jagger was famously forced to say "Let's spend some time together" on 'The Ed Sullivan Show.' Guess what? It still drove the girls wild. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "I'll satisfy your every need/And now I know you will satisfy me"

23. Vanity 6, 'Nasty Girl'
The sonic equivalent of a long, brass pole, this song has worn out more exotic dancers than the National Basketball Association. It was also written by Prince. Raise your hand if you're surprised. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Tonight, I'm living in a fantasy, my own little nasty world/Tonight, don't U wanna come with me? Do u think I'm a Nasty Girl?"

22. Ginuwine, 'Pony'
In '96, long before working with him became cliché, Ginuwine tapped into Timbaland to craft the ultimate pole-riding anthem, which still makes any dancefloor or bedroom giddy up. Forget all the others ... this is the all-time strip-club favorite. -- JW
Sexiest Lyric: "If we're gonna get nasty, baby/First we'll show and tell/'Till I reach your ponytail."

21. Isley Bros., 'Between Sheets'
The recipe for successful procreation is as follows: Man + woman + an Isley Brothers CD. Ronald Isley's falsetto over this '80s synth beat has been the inspiration for Gwen Stefani, Notorious B.I.G. and countless others. We doubt even Billy Dee could resist the smooth taste of this jam. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "Oh darling just taste my love/Ooh wee, you taste so sweet/Oh girl you blow my mind/I'll always be your freak"

20. Pussycat Dolls, 'Don't Cha'
After hearing this frisky tune about a raw, freaky girl that you just can't have -- sung by seven raw, freaky girls that you just can't have -- most men liked their girlfriends a little bit less. Needless to say, it's not a popular song at weddings. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?/Don't cha wish your girlfriend was a freak like me?/Don't cha?"

19. R. Kelly, 'Sex Me'
Long before R. got trapped in the closet, he owned the boot-knockin' '90s R&B world with bedroom anthems that still make us blush. 'Sex Me' taught us how to please a woman step by step -- though in retrospect, his propensity towards the use of the word "baby" is a little disturbing. -- JW
Sexiest Lyric: "Slow, baby, slow baby, steady as we go/Up and down to a 69 tempo"

18. Janet Jackson, 'If'
If this 1993 hit was just about having a crush, then 'Single White Female' was just about having a roommate. Janet (Ms. Jackson, if you're nasty) gives us the details on her fantasy play-by-play, including what she would do to her man's "smooth and shiny." We're sure the object of her affection cashed in immediately. -- KD
Sexiest Lyric: "You on the rise as you're touchin' my thighs and/Let me know what you like/ If you like I'll go/Down da down down down da down down"

17. Otis Redding, 'Try a Little'
What's sexier than a man who knows how to treat a lady? Redding's sweet, soulful 1967 love letter to young girls everywhere has such lasting appeal, it even survived that Ducky lip-synching scene in 'Pretty in Pink.' -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "She may be weary, young girls they do got weary/Wearing that same old shabby dress/But when she gets weary, try a little tenderness"

16. Soft Cell, 'Sex Dwarf'
Lots of people might think that vertically challenged love slaves are hot, but only '80s synth-pop duo Soft Cell had the balls to sing about it. A whip-cracking dominatrix helps the boys lure a legion of disco dollies to a "life of vice" on this fierce and fiendish track. -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "I would like you on a long black leash/I would parade you down the high street"

15. Lil' Kim feat. Sisqo, 'How Many Licks'
The Queen Bee has never recorded a song that wasn't sexy, but 'Licks' makes the list for her classic proclamation, "Under eight inches, damn forget it ..." The dueling moans of the Notorious K.I.M. and Mr. Thong Song in this search for her personal tootsie licker also helped seal the deal ... and forever tainted our view of Mr. Owl. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Lick it right the first time or you got to do it over/Like it's rehearsal for a Tootsie commercial"

14. Nina Simone, 'Sugar'
Once upon a time, "sugar" was an innocent euphemism for a kiss -- like your auntie asking you to give her some sugar. But things changed in '67, when soulful jazz singer Nina Simone passionately sang about the sweet stuff women longed for between the sheets. You'll never pucker up for Aunt Mildred the same way again. -- KD
Sexiest Lyric: "Well I want a little sugar in my bowl/I want some steam on my clothes"

13. TLC, 'Red Light Special'
History gives more credit to TLC's party starters (and fire starting), but it's their 1995 slow jam that got our nature rising. Let's not forget its accompanying video, in which T-Boz, Chilli and Left Eye beat a crew of muscular hunks in a game of strip poker. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "I'll let you touch it if you like to go down/I'll let you go further if you take the southern route"

12. Def Leppard, 'Pour Some Sugar'
A No. 1 hit in 1988, Def Leppard's diabetes-inducing arena-rock anthem is still a reliable way to get into someone's acid-washed jeans. The opening guitar riffs will forever conjure images of teased hair and a halter top balled up on the front seat of a Chevy El Dorado. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Pour your sugar on me, oh, I can't get enough/I'm hot, sticky sweet from my head to my feet yeah"

11. Rick James, 'Give It to Me'
When he wasn't busy slapping Charlie Murphy or burning women with hot crack pipes, the '80s funk-master crafted booty-shaking masterpieces that brought out the superfreak in everyone. How can you refuse this cocaine cowboy's sexy command? He's Rick James, bitch! -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)/I betcha I'll make you holler you've had enough"

10. The Art of Noise, 'Moments in Love'
The avant garde synth-poppers created one of the most noted soundtracks for horizontal groovin' in the '80s. It's 10 minutes of instrumental, electronic utopia -- more than enough time for most of us to get our grooves on. -- JW
Sexiest Lyric: "Do do do do/Do Do Do/Do DO do do do do do do do..."

9. Britney Spears, 'I'm a Slave 4 U'
This 2001 hit encompassed what Brit was at the top of her game: precocious, provocative and oozing sex from every teenage pore. For someone claiming she was a virgin at the time, she sure had that whole heavy-breathing, sex-kitten thing down to a tee. -- KD
Sexiest Lyric: "Baby, don't you want to dance up on me?/Cuz I'm in need"

8. LL Cool J, 'Doin' It'
When it comes to hip-hop love songs, LL Cool J is indeed the G.O.A.T. In 1995, he laid rights to the crown once more with a jam to dance and get busy to. The come-ons from his co-spitter LeShaun are so believable, we can almost picture Queen's finest licking his lips in the booth. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "I guarantee shorty it's real/Baby stick it out/Here comes the man of steel."

7. Led Zeppelin, 'Whole Lotta Love'
Between Robert Plant's snakelike hips and Jimmy Page's 10-story riffs, no one can escape this monstrous rocker's animal magnetism. Moaning and snarling while he begs to "be your backdoor man," Plant exudes the bottomless lust that made him the most notorious groupie-slayer of the '70s. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Way, way down inside .../I'm gonna give you every inch of my love"

6. Barry White, 'Love Serenade'
Music doesn't get more baby-makin' than this. Barry's baritone drawl helped fertilize a million eggs in the sexy '70s, and no modern R&B crooner -- not even that dude from Boyz II Men -- can make a woman's toes curl faster. Usher, take notes. -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "I'm taking the receiver off the phone/Because baby, you and me ... This night .../We're gonna get it on"

5. Madonna, 'Justify My Love'
'Justify' is the musical equivalent of having phone sex while Public Enemy plays in the background. Sounds silly in theory, but when it's Madonna moaning on the other end of the line, the result is a dark 'n' dirty grinder that's almost too hot for prime time. Even liberal ears agreed that Madge finally deserved the spanking she'd been asking for her entire career. -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another"

4. Prince, 'Do Me, Baby'
He's eccentric and only 5 feet tall, yet Prince remains the Ambassador of Sexy. Maybe it's those high-pitched wails or the talk break at the end, but something about this straight-shooting ballad is extremely seductive. Bow down, Justin. -- DB
Sexiest Lyric: "Take me baby/Kiss me all over/Play with my love"

3. Donna Summer, 'Love You Baby'
When dance-music producer Giorgio Moroder tapped a then-unknown Donna Summer to bring this steamy 1975 disco epic to life, how were they to know it would single-handedly launch a decade-long herpes epidemic? Summer actually recorded the song's simulated orgasms lying on her back in a darkened studio. Now that's method acting! -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "Do it to me again and again, you put me in such an awful spin/In a spin (ooh), I love to love you baby"

2. Nine Inch Nails, 'Closer'
If you hadn't quite reached puberty by 1994, 'Closer' was there to help along the process. Proving once and for all that subtlety is overrated, the song boasted a chorus more raw, shocking and shameless than anything even Prince or Madonna would muster, inspiring both mascara-smeared goth chicks and plastered frat boys to do the nasty nastier than they'd ever done it before. -- MTC
Sexiest Lyric: "I want to f*** you like an animal/I want to feel you from the inside"

1. Marvin Gaye, 'Let's Get It On'
Marvin had no time for "beatin' 'round the bush." In the early '70s, this semi-explicit plea for liberated, sugar-sweet lovemaking (sung by a 34-year-old to his 17-year-old girlfriend, no less!) was still a bold statement, but the man just couldn't hold in all this love. America quickly opened its arms to Marvin's charms, making 'Let's Get It On' the second biggest hit of 1973 ... and the sexiest song of all time. -- JP
Sexiest Lyric: "There's nothing wrong with me loving you/And giving yourself to me can never be wrong if the love is true"
