    'Raining on Sunday'

    Keith Urban

    Lustiest Lyric: "Let the water wash our bodies clean and love wash our souls."

    Keith can't be bothered with mundane household chores. He obviously has other things on his weekend "to do" list -- and making the bed isn't one of them.

    'Don't Close Your Eyes

    Keith Whitley

    Lustiest Lyric: "Darling just once, let yesterday go / You'll find more love than you've ever known."

    Memories can be a powerful thing. But no one needs a third person in the room when you're trying to be intimate, as Whitley points out in this sexy song.

    'You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This'

    Toby Keith

    Lustiest Lyric: "I even think I saw a flash of light / It felt like electricity."

    That dizzy feeling you're experiencing could be all that spinning on the dance floor. Or it could be having a guy actually tell you what he's really thinking and feeling.

    'I Melt'

    Rascal Flatts

    Lustiest Lyric: "The closer you get, the more my body aches."

    A little fire can be a dangerous thing. But it's not the unattended candles that are the fire hazard in this chemical-altering come-on.

    'You're Still The One'

    Shania Twain

    Lustiest Lyric: "You're still the one that I love / The only one I dream of."

    Shania does a number on all the senses in this tender (if now somewhat ironic, in light of her divorce from Mutt Lange) bit of romantic rumination. And the dreamy music video conjures up all kinds of possibilities.

    'Nothing on But the Radio'

    Gary Allan

    Lustiest Lyric: "We'll fall asleep here in the moonlight / In tangled sheets / We'll be here all night."

    Who says caring about the environment can't be sexy? Save electricity by listening to the radio in the dark. Next, dance together naked and keep the thermostat set low.

    'Let's Make Love'

    Lustiest Lyric: "Everything inside of me is wanting you and needing you."

    Faith Hill and Tim McGraw scored one of their hottest hits with this duet. It might pay to be subtle when you're single. But for a married couple with three kids, getting right to the point is probably the most effective approach.

    'Let Me Touch You for a While'

    Alison Krauss

    Lustiest Lyric: "Just let me whisper things you've never heard before."

    The motives may not be clear, but "a while" doesn't exactly sound like a long-term commitment, which could be a plus. What exactly is a "wonderama" anyway?

    'Come a Little Closer'

    Dierks Bentley

    Lustiest Lyric: "Every inch of you against my skin / I wanna be stronger than we've ever been."

    It sounds like Dierks might have some making up to do. And by the time he says he "feels like stripping it down" -- whether he means it literally -- all is most likely forgiven and forgotten.

    'Breathe'

    Faith Hill

    Lustiest Lyric: "Caught up in the touch / The slow and steady rush."

    Whether you're caught up in a fantasy or swept away by reality, forget fire hazards, the real danger is hyperventilating. "Just breathe?" Thanks for the reminder, Faith!
