Pucker Up, Buttercup!

So are you getting enough kisses in your life? There's nothing better than a great kiss:

  • a quick peck on the cheek
  • hearty smack on the lips
  • a soft, slow, searching kiss or
  • a hungry, probing "I want you now" kiss?

Smooching is a way to express physical attraction, to greet and to say goodbye. Kissing can bring comfort, repair hurt feelings, and deepen relationship bonds.

If kisses are an important part of your life — and especially if you want even more of them — why not celebrate the magic of the pucker with a playlist devoted to kisses of all kinds? We have a long list of pop, rock, and country songs to get you started.

1. "Kiss" by Prince

This Grammy-winning hit from 1986 sizzles with sensuality and is one of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In it, a confident narrator tells his lover that to be his girl, she need not be beautiful, experienced, rich, cool, or share his zodiac sign. He just wants his lover's time and her kiss. Mr. Not-too-picky warns her, however, that although having an attitude is fine he finds dirty talking a turn off.

2. "First Kiss" by Kid Rock

This contemporary country tune from 2015 involves a trip down memory lane for the song's narrator. When he looks at his partner, he has flashbacks to their youth. And when he drives through small towns, he always rolls down his windows and turns up the radio, recalling his first crush.

Although he can't fight getting older, the fellow still misses the invincibility of being young and in love. Oh, how he wishes to return to the sweet, carefree days of his first kiss.

Who was your first kiss with? How and where did it happen? How old were you both? Was it all you expected? Did you practice your kissing technique before hand?

3. "Kiss On My List" by Hall & Oates

The lyrics to this 1981 chart topping song are simple but catchy. The guy in the song wants his girlfriend to know that her kiss is irresistible and the number one thing in his life.

The condition and appearance of a potential partner's teeth plays a determining factor in a woman's decision to kiss someone (or not).

4. "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not" by Thompson Square

This flirtatious country song from 2010 is about a young couple who sit and talk, nervous about their impending first kiss. The boyfriend is thinking about his next move when the girl boldly asks,

"Are you gonna kiss me or not?
Are we gonna do this or what?
I think you know I like you a lot
But you're 'bout to miss your shot
Are you gonna kiss me or not?"

Fast forward to their wedding ceremony. He lifts her veil and pauses, so she repeats the teasing statement that started it all. (I think we know who wears the pants in this relationship.)

5. "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me" by Mel Carter

Oh, the magic of first love! This 1952 classic has a love-struck narrator begging his girlfriend to hold him forever and walk with him in the dark. He wants her to kiss him, thrill him in unspecified ways and slowly drive him out of his mind.

But wait. What is this about making him tell her he's in love with her? Now this sounds like his motives are more physical than romantic.

6. "Kiss Me Deadly" by Lita Ford

The girl in this 1988 song is pure trouble, and she knows it. She recounts fighting at a party recently and her barely-getting-by life.

Still, she seeks love and has her eyes set on someone special. Our narrator knows she may not be good for the guy she likes, but she wants to kiss him anyway.

7. "Kiss Me Quick" by Nathan Sykes

Too young to settle down. That's what the narrator in this 2015 song claims he is. However, he has found someone who understands him, and he's not afraid of a little PDA. Our narrator tells her to come here for a little quick kiss (maybe a grope). Hey, get a room.

8. "Steal My Kisses" by Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals

The protagonist in this upbeat 2000 song just doesn't seem to get the hint. He complains that he always has to steal his kisses from his love interest.

Now I've been hangin' around you for days
But when I lean in you just turn your head away.

Then our narrator basically force kisses her. Not good, buddy. If you have to repeatedly sneak kisses she's just not that into you. And it's creepy.

9. "Fire" by the Pointer Sisters

You'll appreciate this 1979 song if you've ever had conflicted feelings for a lover in which reason tells you to go but passion tells you to keep coming back for more sugar. The Pointer Sisters describe the heat of sexual chemistry with someone who isn't good for you.

Yep, we've all been there. Douse those flames and find someone better who can light your fire.

10. "Kiss and Say Goodbye" by The Manhattans

This is one sexy goodbye kiss between two lovers who have been getting a little extracurricular action away from their full-time relationships. The man in this 1976 number has decided to finally end their affair but not before he gets one last helping of the good stuff.

11. "Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)" by Cher

This song was originally a hit by doo-woop singer Betty Everett in 1963. Cher's powerful vocals in the 1990 remake improve upon the classic, however.

In the song, a smitten young woman worries about whether her boyfriend truly loves her. Friends tell her that the answer cannot be found in his eyes, his face, or his embrace but rather in his kiss.

Her friends are right. Scientists now believe that kissing serves a matchmaking function, communicating information about health, fertility and genetic compatibility.

13. "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle

In this 1997 song, a father reminisces about shared moments and milestones as his daughter blossoms from daddy's little girl into adulthood. One day she's taking her first ride on a pony and giving him butterfly kisses with her eyelashes after bedtime prayers. Then, before he realizes it, years have flown by, and it's her wedding day.

12. "Shut Up and Kiss Me" by Mary Chapin Carpenter

The gal in this 1994 country song hasn't been kissed in awhile, and now she has her chance. The only problem is this: he's shy, reluctant, and a talker instead of getting right down to business. So what does she do? Pounce!

She explains that

Talk is cheap and, baby, time's expensive
So why waste another minute more?
Life's too short to be so apprehensive
Love's as much the symptom, darlin', as the cure.

Then she just blurts out her command because you might as well, right?

14. "Kiss Me Slowly" by Parachute (featuring Lady Antebellum)

This 2011 country song is about a narrator who has experienced past heartbreak and is trying to love again, although he bears the scars of past relationships. Recalling how a previous lover "stood by as it fell apart, separate rooms and broken hearts," he is tentative. He wants his new lover to kiss him slowly.

15. "Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'" by Charley Pride

Charley Pride won both CMA Entertainer of the Year and Top Male Vocalist for this positive, upbeat song. Its message is truly timeless. The man in this 1971 cross-over favorite is filled to the brim with bliss because he's found the secret of a happy, loving relationship: Let her know she's treasured.

You've got to kiss an angel good mornin'
And let her know you think about her when you're gone
Kiss an angel good mornin' and love her like a devil when you get back home.

16. "Every Little Kiss" by Sara Evans

One thousand miles distance separate the lovers in this 2000. The narrator is working long lonely nights in a location where she knows no one, and she misses talking with her sweetheart as well as his mere presence. Most of all, she misses his kiss.

There's nothing like a great kiss.

Kissing burns calories, releases endorphins (your "happy hormones"), can keep your teeth clean by washing away bacteria and can help lower your blood pressure. Yet it can also spread the common cold and diseases like herpes and meningitis.

17. "This Kiss" by Faith Hill

In this 1998 country song, the narrator fears another heartbreak, but at the same time her new lover has her heart pitter-pattering and leaning in for another kiss. He must have some pucker power over her because she describes it as follows:

It's centrifugal motion
It's perpetual bliss
It's that pivotal moment
It's, ah, subliminal
This kiss, this kiss (it's criminal)
This kiss, this kiss.

18. "You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This" by Toby Keith

One kiss can blur the lines between friendship and romance. It can send your head spending and send your heart aflutter.

In this 1999 song, two friends are out on the dance floor and everyone thinks they're falling in love by the way they're gazing at one another. When the woman kisses the man, he tells to only do that if she means it. (And he really hopes she does.)

19. "Kissing a Fool" by Michael Bublé

It hurts to love someone who doesn't love you back in equal measures. The narrator in this jazz song is a heartbroken man rejected by a woman who kissed him then lied, making him feel like a fool. The song was first released by George Michael in 1988.

20. "I Wanna Kiss You All Over" by Exile

The man in this 1978 tune is away from his lover, but his thoughts are consumed with how he's going to love her when they see one another again. Let's just say "thoroughly."

Men are more likely than women to use kissing to end fights.

Questions & Answers

  • Do you know a song about kissing girls and getting diseases? It was from the 1960s by a British band.

    There was a popular R&B/pop crossover song in 1959 called "Poison Ivy" by The Coasters, an American band. Poison Ivy was a metaphor for a sexually transmitted disease (or "venereal disease" as it was called at the time). Here's their version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbrtRlAtNys

    Note, however, that a British band, The Paramounts, covered the song in 1963 and it rose to #35 on the U.K. charts.

      Linda - Scientists allege that kissing is uniquely a human and (certain) primate behavior (such as bonobos) but the photos obviously say otherwise. Anyone who is close to their cat knows cats often "kiss" their humans and each other as greetings. Thank you for reading and commenting!

It echoed throughout the church. Haha.
