Kiss

“Kiss emmak ya Tom Waits!”
His new album is fantastic: the guy’s till at the top of his game.
Listen to this track, I’ve got it on repeat non-stop since yesterday.


Tom Waits – Kiss Me



You look at me
I look at you
There’s only one thing
I want you to do

Kiss me
I want you to kiss me like a stranger once again



So where do we go from here? Forget about The Shangri-Las, Betty Everett, The Crystals or even Prince.
I’m going for the jugular with this Jeff Buckley track





Kiss me, please kiss me,
But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation.
Oh, you know it makes me so angry ’cause I know that in time
I’ll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye.



Jeff Buckley was a huge Nina Simone fan, covering “Be Your Husband” or “Lilac wine”. So it seemed just obvious to continue with This Year’s Kisses





This year’s crop of kisses
Don’t seem as sweet to me
This year’s crop just misses
What kisses used to be
This year’s new romance
Doesn’t seem to have a chance
Even helped by Mr. Moon above
This year’s crop of kisses is not for me
For I’m still wearin’ last year’s love.






The Pallers – The Kiss


If it wasn’t a kiss
Then I don’t know what it was


And here’s the cherry on top / one of my favorites. I love violent kiss-related songs: He hit me (and it felt like a kiss), Kiss with a fist. The whole betrayal with a kiss aspect is part of the greatest story ever told!
But this one‘s just so “uplifting”!





I need someone, a person to talk to
Someone who’d care to love
Could it be you?
Could it be you?

The situation gets rough, and I start to panic
It’s not enough, it’s just a habit
And, kid, you’re sick
Well, darling, this is it

Well, you can all just kiss off into the air
Behind my back, I can see them stare
They’ll hurt me bad, but I won’t mind
They’ll hurt me bad, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
Yeah, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time, do it all the time

I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record!
Oh, yeah? Well, don’t get so distressed
Did I happen to mention that I’m impressed?

I take one, one, one ’cause you left me
And two, two, two for my family
And three, three, three for my heartache
And four, four, four for my headaches
And five, five, five for my lonely
And six, six, six for my sorrow
And seven, seven for no tomorrow
And eight, eight, I forget what eight was for
But nine, nine, nine for the lost gods
Ten, ten, ten, ten for everything, everything, everything

Well, you can all just kiss off into the air
Behind my back, I can see them stare
They’ll hurt me bad, but I won’t mind
They’ll hurt me bad, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
Yeah, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time time time time time t-time time tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-time tu-time time (do it all the time!)
