    Once upon a time, when an artist released a new album or single, you could expect a correlating music video to premiere on MTV shortly after. Arguments about the demise of the music video, and why MTV doesn't play them anymore aside — dance numbers like Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" and big productions like Michael Jackson's "Thriller" brought the stories artists were telling to life.

    One thing that's remained when it comes to a successful music video is just how fast it makes your jaw drop, after all: Sex sells. Some of the most memorable music videos are filled with hot scantily clad bods, rumpled sheets, and seductive dance moves. Veterans like Madonna held the torch before passing it on to fellow pop stars like Beyoncé and Rihanna. In fact, the latter could carry this list alone.
    Just think about Rihanna's videos; even the darkest ones are sexy. Whether she's paired with Justin Timberlake, Drake, Ne-Yo, or Coldplay's Chris Martin, she knows how to catch your eye.

    Forget about the misogynistic dance moves, at least for three minutes. Equal parts tasteful and tantalizing, consider this list all you need to visually set the mood. As if it wasn't hot enough already.

    Honorable Mentions:
    "Doin' It" by LL Cool J
    "Freak Like Me"
    Adina Howard
    "Stacy's Mom"
    by Fountains of Wayne
    "Lapdance" by N*E*R*D
    "Girls Girls Girls" by Motley Crue
    "Satisfaction" by Benny Benassi

    35. "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" by Billy Currington (2009)

    Ironically, country music — known for encompassing some of the best songwriting and sweetest lyrics — doesn't come with a lot of sexy music videos. This Billy Currington number is the hottest it's going to get, although Faith Hill's "Breathe" and Shania Twain's "You're Still The One" could tie for second place.

    34. "Your Body Is A Wonderland" by John Mayer (2004)

    Before Mayer made infamous comments about what types of girls his special friend liked, he was busy being adorable in bed with this lady. If only that version of the wildly talented guitarist and singer-songwriter still existed.

    33. "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake (1982)

    This '80s hit isn't just a popular karaoke song. It also has one of the hottest rock music videos ever, with Tawny Kitaen prancing around in sexy white lingerie. Cutest part? Kitean later became the wife of lead singer David Coverdale whose car she was galavanting around.

    In the '80s artists got straight to the point; there was no need for subliminal messages. Case in point: George Michael.
