LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Move aside Madonna and watch out Barry White. The winner of the sexiest song of all time is -- Olivia Newton-John with "Physical," according to music publication Billboard.
Billboard has come up with a list of the 50 most popular songs about sex in time for Valentine's Day with each song given points according to its performance on the Billboard hot 100 chart from August 1958 until January this year. "Physical," released by Newton-John in 1981, topped the list after spending 10 weeks as No. 1 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
And while it certainly speaks to sex with lyrics such as "There's nothin' left to talk about, unless it's horizontally," the song became known as well-known as a track for aerobics classes in line with the singer's
exercise-themed video. Second in the list came Rod Stewart's 1976 song "Tonight's the Night," followed by Boyz II Men's 1994 ballad "I'll Make Love To You."
"Some songs are steamy slow-jams, some are hi-octane arena-rockers, but what they all have in common (and what got them on this list) is that the
subject matter of each song is directly related to sex, in some way," Billboard
said in a statement.
Other highlights include Rod Stewart, who made the top 10 twice with "Tonight's the Night" and "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy," and Marvin Gaye hit No. 5 with the classic "Let's Get It On."
Following is a list of the top
10 of the top 50 sexiest songs:
1. "Physical" - Olivia Newton-John
2. "Tonight's The Night" - Rod Stewart
3. "I'll Make Love To You" - Boyz II Men
4. "Too Close" - Next
5. "Let's Get It On" - Marvin Gaye
6. "Hot Stuff" - Donna Summer
7. "Do That To Me One More Time" - Captain and Tennille
8. "Like A Virgin" - Madonna
9. "Kiss You All Over" - Exile
10. "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?" - Rod Stewart
How is this possible?!!? I mean are you kidding me, do the people that come up with these list even have a radio with a FM station on it?!!
Do the names R. Kelly or Trey Songz ring a bell?
I am been married for 15 years and these 2 guys STILL make me blush!
With titles like “I Invented Sex”, “Sticky Face”, “12 Play”, “Sex Me” and “Bump and Grind”, how does Olivia Newton John’s song even get into the top 50?
These are just some of the songs that were looked up at the click of a mouse, the mainstream radio is loaded with songs about sex and vivid descriptions of sexual acts, so I find it hard believe a song from 1981 is number one on the charts for being the sexist song of all time.
I mean they use Olivia Newton John’s song “Physical” in health clubs all over the country to exercise to, so how bad can it be? Whereas they would probably feel uncomfortable playing R. Kelly’s songs at a strip club. Go figure…how times have changed.
It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you, with out some
classics to look thru!
Just think of how many weak blogs you looked thru,
times up, sorry I left you!
Where have I been you ask? (IF YOU EVEN CARE)
Well it was football season, which means it was fantasy football time which means I was swallowed up in it! Not only does fantasy football take up a lot of my time, trying to keep my wife from thinking fantasy football is not more important than her takes up more time than fantasy football itself!
But never fear, Classic University is here! Back now with a vengeance! As well I am back with some CLASSIC UNIVERSITY SIZED ISSUES!!!
As the DEAN, CEO, and VALEDICTORIAN of Classic University, you well know Oldschool pumps through my veins and with each passing day I miss the Oldschool even more. NOTHING made me miss the Oldschool so much as watching the 2010 NBA DUNK CONTEST!
The 2010 NBA ALL-STAR Dunk Contest was the worst Dunk contest in the HISTORY of DUNK CONTEST…and not just the NBA, DUNK CONTEST PERIOD!
NONE of the contestants even looked like they cared, they were missing dunks, no flair, no personality, the crowd was barely cheering and NOT ONE DUNK was original!
Nate Washington, the winner, was just the lesser of the evils, he basically won because he is a small guy and looks decent while missing dunks and doing all the same crap from the last few years.
Granted, Nate has a slight amount of flair, he brought out a few Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, before on of the Dunks, however they were just eye candy, didn’t use them as a prop, didn’t jump over them, didn’t interact with them at all, didn’t feel them up, NOTHING! Nate just let them stand there while he missed dunk after dunk and changed from one dunk to another and then had the nerve to act like he did something after making the unoriginal dunk!
Back when the NBA was great, they had the NBA’s brightest stars in the dunk contest and those stars took it serious! They worked at their dunks, they thought about what dunks they were going to do and put time and effort into the contest.
Missed dunks were few and far in between and there were no do-overs, they scored you on the miss, you didn’t get another try, there was no “dunk” clock involved, there was no young goofy looking deer in the headlights looking punks in the contest, it was the best of the best, playing for PRIDE!
Not anymore, these tall tattooed up would be janitors have no pride, they are motivated by nothing, content with just being mediocre and it shows.
There are some classes to be taught and lessons to be learned from the Star Professor of Classic University, another one of my many titles/hats worn here on campus, because these young whippersnappers stink and they don’t even know it! I blame the NBA because the NBA is too drunk with money to tell these fools about themselves.
Let them stay drunk, and with out my hard earned money, because I will not being buying any NBA tickets to any thing ALL-STAR related, anything regular season related or anything NBA related until the playoffs begin. The NBA Playoffs is the only time we get to see any real effort out of these chumps, so until then they will not get my time or money!
