And the sexiest song of all time is…
Billboard.com recently released the results of their search for the 50 sexiest songs of all time, based on the song’s placement on their Hot 100 chart from August 4, 1958 through January 16, 2010.
The only qualification for the ranking was that the subject matter of the song must have something to do with sex.
Songs were ranked using an inverse point system with weeks at number 1 earning the most points and weeks at number 100 earning the least.
In the end, the big winner for sexiest song of all time was Olivia Newton-John’s 1982 hit “Physical”, beating out Rod Stewart’s “Tonight’s The Night” and Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love To You” which came in second and third place.
Stewart was the only artist to make the top 10 twice, with “Do You Think I’m Sexy” catching the 10th spot.
Other songs making the top 10 were Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” and Donna Summer’s “Hot Stuff.” Summer’s songs seem to be the most common, appearing in the top 50 three more times, with “Bad Girls,” “Love To Love You Baby,” and “Dim All The Lights” all making an appearance.
Many songs from boomer musicians made the top 50, including Cyndi Lauper’s “She Bop,” George Michael’s “I Want Your Sex,” Prince’s “Raspberry Beret,” Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer,” The Rolling Stones “Honky Tonk Woman,” and Madonna’s “Like A Virgin.”
