Top Ten Sexiest Blues Songs

Britgirl
Too many. Whether it be lyrics, the music, or just the way it makes you feel. Feel free to add.

The Top Ten

1 I'm in the Mood - John Lee Hooker

Sounds sexier performed with Bonnie Raitt.

2 Back Door Man - Howlin' Wolf
3 Losing Hand - Paul Butterfield Blues Band

Mighty hard t'argue.

4 Love Me Like a Man - Bonnie Raitt
5 Sugar Mama - Bonnie Raitt
6 Big Legs, Tight Skirt - John Lee Hooker
7 W.O.M.A.N - Etta James
8 Havin' a Real Bad Day - Taj Mahal

"I don't know what to say..." Story of my life. Ah, well. Maybe it's all just a test;).

9 I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man - Muddy Waters
10 Rock Me - Muddy Waters

The Contenders

11 Black Velvet - Alannah Myles
12 Back to Get Ya - J. Geils Band
13 No Amount of Lovin' - Butterfield Blues Band
14 I Need a Man to Love - Janis Joplin

I think I was Janis in a past life. I love this song. - Britgirl

15 Driftin' and Driftin' - Butterfield Blues Band

Live @ the Troubador is mind-boggling, but studio definitely sexier.

16 Going Down Slow - Canned Heat
17 Screamin' - Paul Butterfield Blues Band

Quite unsurprising how so many Butterfield songs made this list. Some songs have sensual lyrics; some have very sexy vocals and music but Butterfield just seems to have it all. Wonder how many children are the result of PB's songs. Just a thought. - Britgirl

18 Bleeding Heart - Jimi Hendrix
19 The Same Thing - Muddy Waters: Fathers and Sons
20 I'm Ready - Muddy Waters: Fathers and Sons
21 Just to Be with You - Paul Butterfield Blues Band
22 Too Many Drivers - Paul Butterfield's Better Days
23 Born Under a Bad Sign - Paul Butterfield Blues Band

Yeah, well... Not the recommended version, but it'll do.

24 Struttin' with My Baby - J. Geils Band
25 When the Lights Go Out - Jimmy Witherspoon
26 Last Hope's Gone - Paul Butterfield Blues Band

Dave Sanborn's killer sax.

The stratospheric saxahorn of the incredibly phantasmic David Sanborn.

27 You Need Love - Muddy Waters
28 Boom Boom - John Lee Hooker

I do believe that Bonnie Raitt once described JLH's performance of this song as "erotic". Who am I to argue; the lady has taste. - Britgirl

29 Win or Lose - Paul Butterfield's Better Days
30 Little Piece of Dying - Butterfield Blues Band
31 Hold Your Lovin' - J. Geils Band
32 Checkin' Up on My Baby - Taj Mahal

Voting for a great song and hoping that you're havin' a real good day :). - Britgirl

33 Fox Squirrel - Muddy Waters
34 Love Deep as the Ocean - Muddy Waters Woodstock Album
35 Finest Lovin' Man - Bonnie Raitt
36 You Got to Know How - Bonnie Raitt
37 Blender Blues - Bonnie Raitt

Impressive pick. Not particularly well-known. Compliments.

Well...thank you, kind sir. - Britgirl

38 Cause We've Ended as Lovers - Jeff Beck
39 I Want to Be with You - Butterfield Blues Band

Maybe I was waiting for someone else to add it.. ;). - Britgirl

Was wondrin' if you'd get around to this:).

40 Evil - Cactus

Was listening to this on the train. It's wild! I actually really like it. Sexy? Can't say, with all that jiggin' the train was doing... Great song. I didn't think it was added by you though :). - Britgirl

Okay, so Wolf probly never 'magined it this-away, but back in the day, this was 'bout as close as we got t'headbangin':).

41 Rock Me Baby - Johnny Winter
42 Georgia Swing - James Cotton
43 Nobody's Fault but Mine - Paul Butterfield's Better Days
44 Leave Your Hat On - Etta James

I'm trying not to imagine... - Britgirl

45 Cry Baby - Janis Joplin

Great song! Hey, who cares if it's more rock than blues if it does what it supposta, eh? Backstage pass indeed! Feel free to smash those back doors in. A pass for every occasion so you can come and come again. :). - Britgirl

Okay, it's blues-rock, and a little more rock than blues. But I get a backstage pass, right? (As many entendres as ya please;).

46 Dengue Woman Blues - Stevie Ray Vaughan
47 Women Loving Each Other - Mike Bloomfield
48 Close to You - Stevie Ray Vaughan
49 Lover's Touch - Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
50 Cherry Red Wine - Luther Allison

Hmm...As I've said before, it isn't all about the lyrics (A man's alcoholic missus isn't sexy) but a feeling you get with the music and vocals; and this man's gritty, gruff vocals, coupled with that guitar IS extremely sexy! - Britgirl
