Follow us on Twitter @CreativeBloggersUK #ccnukbloggers for all updates about CCN UK bloggers.- This article is part of the Top Ten Kiss Songs series, which explores why certain songs are chosen as a favourite in their eyes and in the eyes of others.
The list goes as follows: *”I Want To Know What Love Is,” by Foreigner, from 1984- This song is a classic love ballad with lyrics that are still relevant today.* “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, 1967 – Known for its long introduction, this all time favourite among couples has been reworked in many different formats including versions from Bon Jovi and Lady Gaga. It’s one of those songs where people start singing along to it without even knowing them or what they’re about.- “How Deep Is Your Love?,” Bee Gees, 1977- Released just after Queen Elizabeth II became queen and the year before she married Prince Charles on the 25th of November, this song contains a lyrical reference to her coronation with the line “all around our land” – at that time it was customary for British radio stations to play an anthem on royal occasions and this one would have been perfect.- “I Will Always Love You,” by Whitney Houston from 1992- This is a song where there’s no denying what people feel when they hear it. It has moved many hearts over the years, including mine every single time I see Oscar winning actress Jennifer Hudson perform it live.
The list goes as follows: *”Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, 1967*-“How Deep Is Your Love?,” Bee Gees, 1977*-“Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” Queen, 1979*-“I Will Always Love You,” Whitney Houston, 1992*”Kiss From A Rose,” Seal, 1994 *”-Earth Song”, Michael Jackson from 1995-
“You’re The First And Last Thing On My Mind.” – Rod Stewart, 1973
The number one song on my list is “How Deep Is Your Love?” by the Bee Gees. It’s a delicate love ballad with sensitive lyrics and an incredible performance by lead singer Robin Gibb that I think will give you goosebumps just as it did me when I first heard it in 1977. Other honorable mentions go to Frankie Valli ‘s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” which was both his first number one song and the longest running single on Billboard’s Hot 100 list for over thirty years, Queen ‘s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” which is a rock classic that has been covered by many artists including Elvis Presley , Rod Stewart with his famous version of “You’re The First And Last Thing On My Mind,” Whitney Houston ‘s “(I Will Always) Love You”, Sarah McLachlan ‘s “Angel” from 1997, Seal’s “Kiss From A Rose” from 1994, Michael Jackson ‘s 1995 hit Earth Song , and Adele who had an absolute smash this year with her album 21.
Number One: How Deep Is Your Love?
Honorable mentions go to Frankie Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” which was both his first number one song and the longest running single on Billboard’s Hot 100 list for over thirty years.
Number Two: Crazy Little Thing Called Love
The second best is Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” a rock classic that has been covered by many artists including Elvis Presley, Rod Stewart with his famous version of “You’re The First And Last Thing On My Mind,” Whitney Houston’s “(I Will Always) Love You”. Adele had an absolute smash this year with her album 21 and Michael Jackson ‘s 1995 hit Earth Song . Seal also gets honorable mention for Kiss From A Rose.
Number Three: I Kissed A Girl
Number Four: Angel of Music by Sarah McLachlan.
Number Five: Can’t Help Falling In Love With You, Elvis Presley’s 1954 hit that is one of the best selling singles of all time. This song has been covered over 300 times and was used in a Volkswagen commercial last year which might have brought it back to people’s minds but its popularity dates back much longer than that. (It won Song Of The Year at the Grammy Awards). It also made an appearance as background music during President Obama’s inauguration speech on January 20th 2009 and played again when he accepted his party nomination for president at the Democratic National Convention later that summer. And finally number
I want to be the one who kisses you in your sleep. The tender and reluctant kiss on your forehead both equally sweet, that is my favorite kind of dream for me to keep. I love when we’re holding hands at night, not too tight so it doesn’t hurt but just enough for a reminder that you are by my side with every step I take.
Kisses from friends: they come easily and abundantly like strawberry pie; always warm-hearted, affectionate without being lewd or sleazy – even if their intentions were anything but innocent! Oh how many times have our cheeks touched as well? It has been more than once..and this time was no different either.” “When she kissed my cheek, I felt my heart race as if it had just won a marathon.
BONUS CONTENT: *Kissing the top of your head*” “I love when you kiss me like this because it feels so good and pure.”
The first time we kissed was after late night talks that would usually end in driving around aimlessly on our bikes until deciding to make out against some random house or tree. Our kisses taste like innocence mixed with coffee flavored with sugar from earlier at Starbucks before school started again,” “and somehow they always tasted sweeter than anything else ever could be.”
Happiness is knowing that someone wants to stay close enough for their breath to brush across my skin; for their heartbeat to be in sync with mine.” “That’s what happiness is for me. The best kisses are the ones that feel like home; they allow you to close your eyes and drift into a calm, content place where nothing matters but being wrapped up tightly by each other. A kiss can make anything better—a bad day, an argument, just about anything really.” “Kissing becomes even more special when it feels right because of how natural it is between two people who want so badly to love one another.” *BONUS CONTENT: *Kissing the top of your head*” “I love when you kiss me like this because it feels so good and pure.
