SFGate: Culture Blog! : What's the best adultery song?

Trying to think of the indie rock adultery songs.

SFGate: Culture Blog! : What's the best adultery song?: "What's the best adultery song?

In light of current events, KFOG's Dave Morey conducted a contest this morning for the best adultery song ever.

His listeners (of a certain demographic) nominated a bunch, including the Eagles' 'Lyin' Eyes,' Elvin Bishop's 'Fooled Around and Fell in Love,' and Derek and the Dominos' 'Layla' -- which has the advantage of being about the most famous adulterous affair since, what, Paris and Helen of Troy?

Dave's winner: 'Me and Mrs. Jones,' by Billy Paul, which isn't much musically but does have lyrics that resonate with people who've got a thing going on.
Even more poignant, though not reflective of the mess at City Hall, there's Whitney Houston's 'Saving All My Love For You.' Your suggestions?"
