Australian correspondent Alex Jackson reports on the rather unusual
results of a radio poll on "favourite bonking songs": Birds do it, bees do it
and it seems that Australians like doing it to the strains of Nine Inch
Nails!. Well, listeners of national youth radio network Triple J do at any
rate. In Triple J's recent Big Bonking Poll, listeners voted NIN's "Closer"
as their favourite song to bonk to. (For the squares out there, bonk is a
euphemism for fuck. ) The remainder of the top 10 bonking songs, in order,
were Jeff Buckley's
"Sweet Surrender," Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing," Chris Isaak's "Wicked
Game," The Doors' "Riders On The Storm," The Cure's "Close To Me," Pink
Floyd's "Great Gig In The Sky," Prince's "Cream," Madonna's "Justify My
Love" and Enigma's "Principles of Lust." Whatever takes your fancy.
