Top 10 Songs With Body-Part References (Part 1)

So time for another Top 10; today a strange, obscure and fun one: Songs that reference body-parts. I have excluded the use of ‘eyes’, ‘heart’, ‘hands’ and ‘feet’ as too obvious. So sadly, The Pogues  – ‘A Pair Of Brown Eyes’, Fergal Sharkey – ‘A Good Heart’, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – ‘Red Right Hand’, The Smiths – Hand In Glove’, XTC – ‘Ten Feet Tall’ don’t qualify. I’ve also allowed a  particular body-part to appear only once…I’ve been very picky this time round. Even so, it’s a two-part Top 10 (so really a Top 20 I guess!)…
