The Year's Sexiest Song

Posted on

2007

Robin Thicke

“LOST WITHOUT U”

AGE: 30

STATUS: MARRIED, TO ACTRESS PAULA PATTON

“It’s about having somebody you love love you back,” says Thicke of the song he wrote while lounging in front of his fireplace. “I was feeling very sexy when I wrote it—but I always feel pretty sexy.” The tune’s inspiration? Thicke’s wife, Paula, whom he serenaded during their first date more than 15 years ago. “She finds her way into just about every song I write,” he says.
