Kylie’s a passion thriller

Pop princess comes top in PRS for Music chart of ‘sexy songs’

St. Valentine may be the patron saint of romantic love, but the UK doesn't spend £millions on cards, gifts, candlelit dinners and impractical underwear every year without at least the promise of something back.

In recognition of that, PRS for Music has compiled the ultimate playlist of sexy songs to 'close the deal' on Valentine’s Day.  Coming top of the chart is Kylie Minogue’s track ‘Slow’ that hits all the right buttons when it comes to passion.

PRS for Music, the organisation that collects royalties on behalf of its 85,000 song writing and composer members, compiled the ‘lusty list’ of music using its unique performance data working out which songs have been used most across the UK over the past 12 months.

The erotic dance track is the ‘most-performed’ song on radio, TV and online.

Music can have an aphrodisiac affect upon people especially when they are in a romantic mood and Kylie’s Slow seems to press all the right buttons.  Personally I prefer the old classics like Hot Chocolate’s ‘You Sexy Thing’ or Barry White’s ‘Can’t Get Enough of Your Love Babe’ but whatever your music choice there’s certainly something in this PRS for Music chart for everyone – good luck!
