It was the biggest selling single of the 1980’s, spending 10 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 in 1982. The song was originally written for a man (Rod Stewart), and the guitar solo was performed by Toto guitarist Steve Lukather. Over 2,000,000 copied were sold in the United States alone. but the sexiest single of all time?
Last year on this date Billboard.com named Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” as the sexiest song of all time, beating out contenders “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy”, “Let’s Get It On”, and “Tonight’s The Night”. There are many other contenders for “dirtiest song of all time”, but Billboard may have gotten this title right.
You have to reach a lot of people to have the biggest record of an entire decade.
