September 13, 2009

This week's musical selection is World Outside by The Devlins. I discovered this song after listening to some other Devlins stuff, and fell in love with it before I found out it was used in Closer (the film with Natalie Portman, in the scene with Clive Owen in the strip club), or used for an HBO DVD promo for their shows (and used very well.)
The Devlins are a group from Dublin that recorded basically in the mid-to-late 90's. One of their songs, Waiting, was also used in the show Six Feet Under. They're not making music anymore, but one of the members, Colin Devlin, has put out a solo album and is still touring and recording. It's great music, I suggest you check it out.

The thing about World Outside, is that I truly believe it is the sexiest song ever. Combine the tempo, music, and lyrics of the song itself, the way it was used by Hollywood, and a tad of personal experience..it is #1 on my list. Which leads me to ask you...what is the sexiest song of all time? Sound off below in the Comments section, I'm interested to hear your choices.

But for now, enjoy this clip of World Outside (audio only)

I'm not saying it's the sexiest of all time, but it is one of my favourites, Skin Trade by Duran Duran.....love that song

As you probably know, I'm a HUGE Duran Duran fan. I can see that song as a good choice, although it's one of my least favourite Duran Duran songs.

I'll throw another one out there, Love Island by Fatboy Slim.....most have probably not even heard that one but it is also one of my favourites

Andrea said...

Not bad, but I think my sexiest song is Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side" or from the Big Chill album Aretha Franklin's " You Make me feel like a Natural Woman"

Sean said...

Paul, I haven't heard that one.

Andrea, I've got to give it to you, that bass line at the beginning of Walk on the Wild Side (and the entire song itself) is pretty smokin'.

Come on.... sexiest song ever? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1ArZEFwRsY Orgasm starts at point 2:39

Dev said...

Well it is a hard one to answer... Need you tonight by INXS (Hot Girls by newer INXS), or Closer by NIN...there are alot of others - agree with Andrea who posted Natural Woman by Aretha. There is also the classic (yet obvious) Love Serende by Barry White....

Perhaps most romantic is a better term for this song. It could also be New Zealand's most "world famous in New Zealand" song.
