FIRST KISS SONGS: AN OPEN LIST ➕
Because of @brookielyons' first kiss list. Because apparently it's Lip Day on List App (see @Suzanne). Because one late eve this week I found myself regaling a very young gentleman with the story of my first kiss, accompanied by the associated soundtrack. He clearly thought we were going to kiss. We didn't. But we did get this out of it. Add yours!
- •"Say Goodbye" by Dave Matthews Band. Year: 2000. Boy: Aaron Michaud. Location: His bed.I was 17. Aaron was cynical, cool, drove a Nissan XTerra, really good at math, and my new best friend. Later that year, in our dance company's green room, my friends and I discovered he'd used this DMB move on at least five of us. Tell-take lyric: "Lovers for a night, lovers for tonight / Stay here with me, love, tonight / Just for an evening / And tomorrow go back to being friends". !!! You gotta admit: Pretty tight game for a 17 year old. We all subsequently boycotted his DMB-playing XTerra.
- •"Surround me" by Chantal kreviazuk. She was there when they dropped the 💣. Totes remember the 💣.Suggested by @jansonebwoodlee
- •"One" by U2. Year: 1991. Girl: Coleen. Location: the couch"You ask me to enter but then you make me crawl and I can't keep holding on to what you've got when all you've got is hurt." This relationship was as doomed as the song would suggest.Suggested by @gwcoffey
- •Rock With You, Michael Jackson. In the "clubhouse" my boyfriend built from blocks (yes, blocks) during lunch hour at my hippie school in San Francisco. I will not divulge my age though I will say I was old enough to enjoy the kissing very much.Suggested by @RebeccaWalker
