Anonny Mouse Sexiest piece of music ever? (109* d) RE: Sexiest piece of music ever? 22 Feb 06

Most of Sinatra's "ballads" and torch songs. Say what you will about him, his phrasing and orchesteral arrangements were, to my ear, always spot-on; Bob Shane's "Scotch and Soda" (yep-gotta get a KT song in here-LOL); These days my ears are turned by the clear, rather crystaline female vocals of someone like Alison Krauss, or Sara McLaughlin--even though the tunes need not have ANY kind of romantic/sexual content-they just make me want to curl up with them in front of a roaring fire and some fine wine. Sorry if that sounds dumb. And I'm sure plenty of you can't stand the two examples I cited.

What I DON'T find "sexy" is the Britney Spears/Jay-lo/girly gyrations and scantily clad females appealing to the pre-pubescent teen female (or male) market.

I'm also with the "crew" that finds "best" or "most important" lists impossibly subjective, and usually spread more heat than light. My opinionated 2 cents.
