Final Results of the Recent Sexiest Song Poll

In the recent poll asking you to select the sexiest song, Marvin Gaye's 1973 ode to making the beast with 2 backs won easily with over 50% of the vote. Something that many people were in agreement on was that Physical by Olivia Newton-John did not belong on the list of sexiest songs of all time (I don't think it does either). On paper, I get the song's sexy vibe. Here are the opening lyrics to Physical:

I'm saying all the things that I know you'll like
Making good conversation
I gotta handle you just right
You know what I mean
I took you to an intimate restaurant
Then to a suggestive movie
There's nothing left to talk about
Unless it's horizontally

Ultimately, Olivia's version is too bouncy and lastly, I just can't think of Physical without getting visions of leotards and sweatbands dancing in my head. That's the power of music video.

Here are the final results:

"Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye- 54%
"I'll Make Love To You' by Boyz II Men- 13%
"Tonight's the Night" by Rod Stewart- 11%
"Physical" by Olivia Newton-John and "Other"- 9% each (you can click here to read the alternate songs chosen by readers)
"Too Close" by Next- 1%

Thanks to all of you who participated in this poll and to Denise H. for suggesting it.
