Musical Friday: Kiss Me

Dear friends,

There are some songs that you think should have the Repeat button written all over it... those songs that haunt you since your childhood... those songs that you would never skip on your playlist... Well, for me, one of those songs is Kiss Me from Sixpence None The Richer :)
"Kiss Me" is a song recorded by Sixpence None the Richer and released on their self-titled album in 1997. The single reached #2 on the Billboard US Hot 100. It became the main theme song for the teen film She's All That starring Rachael Leigh Cook.
The song was a worldwide success; it reached number four on both the UK Singles Chart and the Canadian Singles Chart and number one on the Australian singles chart, making it the group's highest-charting single across the world.
The song is also the group's best-selling single in the United States. The song remained at the number two position for six weeks, stuck behind Cher's "Believe", TLC's "No Scrubs", and Ricky Martin's "Livin' la Vida Loca". Even though it only reached second place, the song did have great longevity on the chart, spending 24 weeks in the Top Ten and 35 weeks on the chart. At the end of 1999, Billboard ranked the song as the sixth best-selling single of 1999, ahead of a number of other #1 hits and the second highest rank for a song that didn't make it to the top, behind Whitney Houston, Faith Evans, and Kelly Price's "Heartbreak Hotel", which ranked at #4.

Here are the lyrics:

Oh kiss me out of the bearded barley,
Nightly , beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You'll wear those shoes and I will wear that dress

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift you open hand
Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance
Silvermoon's sparkling,
So kiss me

Kiss me down by the broken tree house
Swing me , upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring , bring your flowered hat
We'll take the trail marked on your father's map

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift you open hand
Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance
Silvermoon's sparkling,
So kiss me

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift you open hand
Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance
Silvermoon's sparkling,
So kiss me...
Have a lovely and kissable Friday! :)

Yours truly,
The Music Lover LadyBug
