"Sex Bomb" is a 1999 song recorded by Welsh singer Tom Jones. Performed in collaboration with German DJ and record producer Mousse T., it was released in May 2000[1] and became the biggest single from Jones' 1999 album Reload. It became a smash hit across Europe, reaching number one in France and Switzerland, while also becoming a top-three hit in the United Kingdom, Austria, Iceland, Italy, Germany, Spain, and Walloon Belgium. The "Peppermint Disco Mix", a club version with house music beats, contains a sample from "All American Girls" by Sister Sledge and has been used as the opening theme song of the WB Network television series Grosse Pointe. A jazzier "swing version" appears on Mousse T.'s 2001 debut solo album Gourmet De Funk.
