This Billboard list of “sexiest songs” is offensive to anyone who has ever had sex. Do people really shag to “Sledgehammer”? And “Honky Tonk Women”? Because nothing’s hotter than a lyric like, “She blew my nose and then she blew my mind.”
Anyway, I’ll offer up a little Solomon Burke in protest. Here’s “Flesh and Blood,” the Joe Henry-penned tuned from Burke’s masterful album Don’t Give Up on Me.
Feel free to add your own favorites in the comments. Let’s see if we can compile a better gettin’ it on playlist than Billboard’s.
Certainly can’t do much worse!
