Sexiest songs. @ 11:22 am

bonoffee:
My depression's back with a vengeance today, kids. So humour me with this one. ;)

Which would you pick as the sexiest songs U2 has done? I don't necessarily mean the lyrics, or the performance. It could be either of those or just a mysterious quality that gives a song that extra spice. It doesn't even have to be sexy in a sexual way (yeah, I know what I mean, lol!).

My most obvious is of course HMTMKMKM. The end part (I'm in uni, can't be too explicit!) is not even the whole story. It's the music, the sex is in the music... And I'm sorry but the way Edge handles that guitar on Popmart Mexico is downright unsuitable for me to view when I'm not expecting it. ;)

Other than that, I think Until The End Of The World is incredibly sexy. That riff is the hottest thing Edge has ever played and every time I hear it, I want to kidnap him. Watching it on DVD is just as bad. But so good. And oh yeah, Bono's singing isn't bad, either. ;)

*thinks* Actually most of AB is, seeing as the subject matter is usually along those lines... But yeah, those are my top 2. :D

EDIT: Heh. The Fly. Your Blue Room. Love and Peace. Fast Cars (ole!), Mysterious Ways. Silver and Gold. Walk To The Water. With Or Without You. All I Want Is You. Discotheque.

I generally find what Edge does with a guitar is what makes a song sexy for me. Just thought about it there. Bono helps, though, when he sings all sexy. ;)

I find Love and Peace or Else to be quite sexy, but Until The End of The World is the ultimate sexy song, in my mind. I'm sure I shouldn't think that, given the theme of the song, but eh...

"We make music people can have sex to."

Iloveyou. For posting this. Hee!

Okay. I agree with you totally on HMTMKMKM & UTEOTW. The *cough* noises Bono makes during the former just kill me every time.

The dance remix of Even Better Than the Real Thing that appears on the Best of 90-00 B-sides is gorgeous. Well, the part where Bono groans out "take me higherrrr" in particular.

Also- I don't know why, but I find Love Comes Tumbling to be very sexy- Bono's voice is so deep and rich in that. Particularly the line "The seed is spilt, the bed defiled, for you a virgin bride." Guhhh.

A few more: Mysterious Ways, Lemon, If You Wear That Velvet Dress, & some parts in Miami.

oh the noises bono makes...

1. If You Wear That Velvet Dress - my ultimate number one.
2. The Bass Trap - in a subtle way, it's very sexy
3. Promenade - again, in a subtle way
4. Anything off ACHTUNG BABY - especially - So Cruel, UTEOTW, The Fly, Mysterious Ways, Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World, and even Love is Blindness (more in a haunting sense, but still...)
5. Lemon - just cuz it's fun & the line, "She wore lemon / see-through in the sunlight /she had heaven / and she held on so tight" - Uh...yeah. ;-)

+ Whoever added Love Comes Tumbling -- I totally agree.
A lot of B-sides are quite sexy, come to think of it. :-)

Thanks for posting this - it was fun!

I need to lie down now.

"Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me"--a big hell yeah to this one.

Can I add "Love is Blindness"? It's like slow sex, candles lit, bubble bath...

SEXXXXX! What a nice entry to see upon first waking up.

No one has mentioned my number one yet, which is surprising.

1. Do You Feel Loved -- Everything in this song is pure sex. Bono's voice, and the lyrics

"You've got my head filled with songs,
you've got my shoelaces undone,
take my shirt, go on, take it off me,
you can tear it up, if you can tie me down"

"With my fingers as you want them,
with my nails under your hide,
with my teeth at your back,
and my tongue to tell you the sweetest lies"

"Love is coming, pushing and shoving,
in the belly of a woman,
heavy rhythm taking over,
to stick together, a man and a woman,
stick together, man and woman,
stick together"


But even more so than that, Adam's bassline in this song is pure sex. I can confess to being drunk and listening to it, and decided that I wanted Adam really badly, but that his bass guitar would have to be in bed with us. Ahem..

2. Even Better Than The Real Thing -- There's not a whole lot substance to this song, but still, it's one of those that gets to me. Just the way Bono breathes out the word "yea" on the second chorus. "You're the real thing, yea, the real thing." Mmm.

3. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me -- The Bonogasm, obviously. But damn, the whole song is pretty hot.

4. Pop Muzik (PopMart Mix) -- Again with the Bonogasm. But Jesus, this one's even better. The sexy way he sings the "Talk about pop music, talk about pop music, talk about pop music, talk about pop music, pop, pop music" and then he goes into this thirty second Bonogasm.

5. If You Wear That Velvet Dress -- Ugh! He's singing in his sex voice. And all of the low whispering. It kills me, it really does.

6. Miami -- I am SO not joking. The end of it.


"I took a picture of you, my mammy,
getting hot in a photo booth, Miami,
I said you looked like a madonna,
you said maybe,
you said, I wanna have your baby, baby,
baby, we could make something beautiful,
something that wouldn't be a problem,
we could make something beautiful,
something that wouldn't be a problem,
at least not in Miami"


Only one song in the world could make me want to get knocked up in a photo booth in Miami. And it's this one.

7. Your Blue Room -- It's sexy in the same way that If You Wear That Velvet Dress is, but it's more of a romantic/sensual song, than full out SEX.

8. So Cruel -- I love this song a little too much. It's a bit sad how long it took me to realize what the song was about. But as soon as I did, I was like "Bono, you dirty boy." The lyrics are just so sexy.

9. Night And Day -- I heard the more "classic" version of this song before I ever heard U2's version, and I was just amazed (and quite pleased with) how dark and sexy they made the song.

10. Elevation -- I didn't realize the sexiness of this song at first. Still not sure exactly what it is. It's something in the music though, moreso than Bono's lyrics/singing anyway.

11. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car -- A dark song, yes. But there's still something very sexy in Bono's singing. And the rhythm, too. Very sexy.

Also, I totally agree with others about Until The End Of The World and Mysterious Ways. Can't be bothered to just repeat what everyone else has said though =P

God, I didn't realize I had so many in mind. A person could make like a whole CD of these.

...But I think that would lead to bad things.

I've already had to ban myself from listening to most of these songs while in bed and trying to sleep XD

I don't have time to list anything else, (because I could list a lot more ;x) but the first song that came to mind for me is Love Comes Tumbling Down. Maybe because I've been listening to it non stop! Oh, and Can't Help Falling In Love off one of the singles is another one...

Edge=sexy

rattle and hum video - Hawkmoon - Edge's guitar solo and the fact that they keep showing edge from the back, the way he moves got to me and still does get to me

live version of Running to stand still - i think its the Slane Zoo version...Edge plays guitar instead of keyboards and although the song itself isnt sexy for its content, the guitar solo at the beginning surely is.

love is blindness - ultimate sexy u2 song in every way even though its a sad sexy song.

I find One sexy in a nonsexual way if you know what i mean...just the tone of voice of bono, at the beginning of the song you can almost hear the sneer in his voice, and i find the video of him sitting at that cafe table very sexy

Wild horses - the video. Bono looks the best he's ever looked, he has a sneer/smile on his face, he screws up the lipsynching and drops the f-bomb and walks away...sexy for some reason.
