Favorite (Slightly Raunchy) Love Songs

George Michael’s proved to us with I Want Your Sex that a come on song isn’t exactly a love song. Some of those songs can be incredibly fun like Candy Man by Christina Aguilera or Come On, Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners. It’s pretty clear what these folks are celebrating and the information is given to us straight up, no pretty wrappings or flowery innuendo required.

Some songs add a little love to their come on. Here are some of my favorites.

The Plain White T’s invite a girl to a rather charming one night stand in Rhythm of Love.


Teenage Dream by Katy Perry talks about finding the man who completes her, her missing puzzle piece. It’s obvious this is about a lot more than just letting him get his hands on her.


Lay Lady Lay, the version by Magnet and Gemma Hayes, is a wonderful love song.


Underneath It All by No Doubt clearly has two meanings – she hasn’t just seen him naked physically but emotionally. And he’s been good for her as a result and they are meant to be. You are really lucky when you get that from someone!


Have any slightly risque love songs that number among your favorites?

    We were just talking about this yesterday. My teen years were full of raunchy songs that made the top 40. Rod Stewart’s “Tonight’s the Night,” Bread’s “I Want to Make It with You,” the Raspberries’ “Please Baby Go All the Way,” even of course the song we all sang the chorus of as loud as we could, “Lady Marmalade.”

    Today, I love JTX’s “Love in America,” Addicted” by Saving Abel, and Chris Young’s “Getting You Home.”

    Three great songs from the Afghan Whigs album 1965, “Somethin’ Hot”, “66” and “John the Baptist” are three of the sexiest songs I’ve ever heard and I use to play them on repeat. Greg Dulli’s voice drips sex!

    Matt Nathanson’s “Come On Get Higher” is a beautiful (and raunchy) love song.

    Sorry, I’ve come to this a bit late.
    The sexiest lyric from my early years is in ‘Love You A Little Bit More’ by Dr Hook.
    I think it goes:

    And when your body’s had enough of me
    and I’m laying right out on the floor
    when you think I’ve loved you all I can
    I’m gonna love you a little bit more.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!
