We were a little surprised yesterday when we (a handful ofDC-9
writers) realized just how many albums we owned with topless women on the covers. As we were finishing up the list of favorites for our slideshow featuring18 of the best topless album covers
for discs with less sex-focused music, most of us were a little surprised just how much T&A was featured on our iPods. Admittedly, we'd forgotten the stripper on the cover of Tom Waits'Spare Change
. Check out the slideshow, and let us know if we missed some really great nearly naked album covers. We'll probably add them to our collection. --Chelsea Ide
