Once again, a very tough assignment!! LOL
Two songs come to my mind right away:
"Let it Ring" (she is almost "speaking" this song!!), and
"Possess Me"

Have a lovely "Day"! :)

I agree, 'Let it ring' is way up there on the sexy list - for me, with 'Time to Say goodnight'.

I think the film version of Possess Me - is far sexier than the faster version released in the Listen to Day- album.

A couple that quickly come to my mind are:

Let it Ring
Possess Me
I'm a Big Girl Now
Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps

And I love 'em all!! :)

My choices would be:
Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars
Fly Me To The Moon
Stars fell On Alabama
Close Your Eyes
Let It Ring
I Had the Craziest Dream...
but I agree with all of your choices.
And it's hard to make a selection, because she sang so many sexy songs.

Joseph Roddy, who became a senior editor at "Look" magazine, was its music reporter in 1949 when he wrote, "Doris Day is the most artful performer of sultry singing of them all. Her most recent releases are as soft and humid as torch songs can be and still be legal." As others have noted, it's hard to choose -- but these are 10 of my favorites:

You Go to My Head
Oh, How I Miss You Tonight
Stars Fell on Alabama
I'm a Big Girl Now
Why Don't We Do This More Often
Possess Me
Give Me Time
Let It Ring
Snuggled on Your Shoulder
I Have Dreamed

Good Lord, that's a long list ... but the two that turn me into jam are "I'll Never Stop Loving You" (piano only) and "Give Me Time" with Previn.

Honestly, she could sing the phone book and I'd melt ...

The line about "singing the phone book" is great. Thank you for that.

My pick is "Wait Till You See Him" with accompaniment by Andre Previn.

Music Lover, I'm glad you chose "Oh, How I Miss You Tonight," as a SEXY ditty. I totally agree - it would be my number one choice.
Like Irene Dunne done.

You know, Renie, the more I think about it, that whole damn album with Previn is sexy, except for "Control Yourself" and even that tune has a "come hither" sound to it.

I went back and listened to the albums Previn made with Dinah Shore and Diahann Carol and as good as they are, I don' think he played with as much imagination and nuance as he did for DD. In no small measure, I think that's because of the particular way DD phrases lyrics, don't you think?

The Previn album is sexy but "Why Don't We Do This More Often" gets right down to the nitty gritty as does "Let It Ring". They both get my vote.

"Por Favor", "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps", " Slightly Out Of Tune", The whole CD "Latin For Lovers". "Softly, As I Leave You", "Since I Fell for You". On each CD Doris is such a sexy song.
I LOVE YOU DORIS♥

Several of you have referenced bossa-samba tunes and strangely enough I was singing last Friday night at a club I play when a guest approached me and asked me to sing Desafinado with the trio. I pulled it off and in conversation later shared with her that one of the best bossa singers is Doris Day.

She knew Gilberto and Sinatra's work with Jobim, but the mention of DD surprised her (I love it when that happens), so I gave her the list and this morning, received an email from her thanking me for the suggestion. She specifcally mentioned that DD's voice is very sexy in those tunes.

It never ceases to amaze me how many otherwise informed folks just don't know of Doris's prowess as a magnificent singer.

Def- the whole Latin for Lovers album- particularly [for me] "Be true to me" and DD singing [albeit too briefly] in Spanish.

Good blog, Tony. I think Mort Garson's arrangements on the Latin for Lovers album are some of his best ever.

I watched the Pajama Game again the other night and it hit me. Small Talk! The way Doris sings her part is very sexy when you also factor in the looks she gives John Raitt throughout the song, her movements around the room, and what they say and don't say to each other. It's really good! The scene ending is wonderful. It's available on youtube.

That is a good scene from "Pajama Game" for sure.

I'm going to add a song to my list of Doris's sexy recordings -- her 1947 rendition of the Mann-Evans song
"No Moon at All." You can find it on Youtube, and it's worth a listen. Great beat, clever lyric, very alluring delivery. (The bassist on the recording was Bob Haggart, who was Bob Crosby's bass player when Doris joined that band 7 years previous to this recording.)
