Top 10: Songs for SI swimsuit issue

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue has always held a special place in my heart. Growing up in a rather strict household in the pre-Internet era, I looked forward to its arrival like Christmas. Pops, who subscribed to the magazine as long as I can remember, would try and hide the yearly pseudo-porn offering from me (and my mom). But it never escaped me. When I saw this pic posted at PoHo's blog, the sweet memories came pouring back.
