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.
