1/ KISS - well, this is a bit obvious. But you've got to give this band credit for longevity - who would have thought they would become this huge phenomenon, with all that crazy make-up, tight outfits and platform boots. Their music actually wasn't half bad (I liked Beth in particular).
And Gene Simmons, if you've ever caught his show "Family Jewels" you'll find that he's a pretty funny, dorky Dad but you catch glimpses of someone who is quite, quite smart.
2/ Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me - album by the Cure. Well, if you've been following this blog, this inclusion is pretty obvious. "Just Like Heaven", "Why Can't I Be You', "How Beautiful You Are". What great songs.
3/ Kiss Me - by Stephen Tin Tin Duffy. I used to listen to this over and over and over when it first came out. And loved pretty much every version that was created. Here's a live version of it I found on You Tube.
4/ Kiss - by Prince. Is he still going by that moniker? Oh, I saw him at the Grammys. Guess so.
5/ Kiss Me - Sixpence None the Richer. Cute, poppy froth.
6/ Kiss from a Rose - Seal. Smooth sounds from this fellow. Reminds me, need to check out his newest release.
7/ Suck My Kiss - Red Hot Chili Peppers. Not my favourite band, nor my favourite song from them. But it makes the list.
8/ Last Kiss - Pearl Jam. Pretty song, but a bit depressing.
9/Kiss and Tell - Bryan Ferry. Sexy man, for an older guy.
10/ Kiss them for Me - Siouxie and the Banshees.
11/Blue Kiss - Jane Wiedlin, the cute pixie from the Go-Go's.
12/ Kissing Rain - Roch Voisine. Likely his biggest English record. One of the best voices I've heard live, and surprisingly he's great in concert. Not too bad in the looks department too, and I must admit, I prefer hearing him sing in French.
Hasn't been able to hit it big in the US, but we know him here in Canada, and he's got fans in Europe.
13/ Kiss is on my List - Hall & Oates. And it's on this list too, because I've run out of tunes, not necessarily because I'm a fan. But I heart 80's so you can't ignore this duo.
A BIG SMACK TO YOU FOR VALENTINE'S DAY
