Songs To "Bonk" To

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.
