Kissing Couple

Smooching, snogging, tonsil tennis, pashing, making out. Whatever you call it, everyone does it. And if they don’t, they should.

But when you’re getting in a passionate mood, it’s always good to have some sweet sounds on the stereo. Here are ten of ours.

1. Prince - Kiss

Of course. “I just want your extra time and your… KISS!” The Purple One knew what he was doing.

2. Courteeners - That Kiss

“That kiss it lasted too long / And we probably shouldn't have danced to that song.” Oh Liam, don’t feel guilty.

3. Friendly Fires - Kiss Of Life

“A thousand butterflies, from your lips to mine…”

4. The Maccabees - Toothpaste Kisses

“I'll win your heart with a woop-a-woo!” says Orlando. And who are we to argue?

5. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Suck My Kiss

Ew, Anthony, stop it!

6. Morrissey - Kiss Me A Lot

Moz sends a formal request for some pashing.

7. Echo And The Bunnymen - Lips Like Sugar

Scouse romance par excellence from Ian McCulloch.

8. Nirvana - Molly’s Lips

“Kiss, kiss Molly's lips” - originally recorded by 1980s Glaswegian band The Vaselines.

9. New Order - The Perfect Kiss

“Now I know the perfect kiss is the kiss of death.” Don’t be like that, Barney.


10. The Subways - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

“She's a devil with a KISS KISS BANG BANG / Bad blood running through her veins.” Steady on, Billy!
