While we may not admit wholeheartedly, truth is, each one of us finds a specific part of the body attractive.

Singers and songwriters from different genres have creatively expressed their views about body parts.

Songs that mention body parts in their title may convey a diverse meaning of a concept or idea. Varying degrees of passion and affection are showcased figuratively with different parts of the body. Certain musicians describe the exhilarating feeling during a physical relationship with their lover. The romantic moments that ignite with a touch or warm breath on the lips is passionately conveyed in lyrics of certain songs. In certain songs, a double entendre is used to convey two interpretations, with the double meaning intended to be socially awkward.

A plethora of intense emotions are often expressed with body parts such as hair, skin, eyes, lips, nose, mouth, chin, ears, neck, chest, back, arms, hands, fingers, hips, waist, abs, ankles, and legs. The attraction towards certain parts of the body is earnestly portrayed through thoughtful lyrics in some love songs.
