Happy Music Monday! Everybody always saves the love song for February 14th. But by then it's too late to make your own mix for the one you love. So THIS year, we're gonna do it right and make a kissing mix now. Then it'll be ready for V-Day! Got it? Good. Let's get started.

George Michael - Kissing A Fool

 

Nobody would have expected pretty-boy George Michael to go for the jazzy nightclub sound, but that's exactly what he did in 1988, allegedly in a single take. And now, this simple, slightly insecure blast of feeling is pretty much a vocal standard. Sorry for all those things I said about you when I was in high school, George. I was just jealous the girls liked you more than me.

Much more smooching after the jump. See you there!

Right Said Fred - Don't Talk Just Kiss

 

He was too sexy for a career, but that didn't mean he didn't try. Right Said Fred's catchy follow-up hit should have done well, and in some other world, maybe it would have. But November 1991 was a lot different than July 1991 for some reason, and this well-meaning pop wanna-be was Fred's kiss goodbye. Until they pulled him out for the Smurfs movie.

Siouxie & The Banshees - Kiss Them For Me

 

Siouxie always found a way to make music that was wistful and interesting at the same time. This one pays tribute to Jayne Mansfield. Sort of a kiss to the past that turned into a kiss to the future, since this song still sounds pretty modern. All it needs is a little auto-tune to be current!

Sixpence None The Richer - Kiss Me

 

That first kiss is always kinda sweet. Will it work? Is it a mistake? No matter how old you are, kissing someone for the first time can still send you back to junior high and make you somehow want to run and tell all your friends down at the treehouse. Sweet as this song.

Los Doltons - El Ultimo Beso

 

Some of us know this as a Cavaliers song while some of us only know the Pearl Jam cover but I gotta go with this version because I'm a fan of that organ. This version hit number one in Peru in the 1960s. And, appropriately enough, it's our closer.

Put your kisses in the forums and we can all share the love! Hey, let us also remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use. See you next week.

How has nobody posted Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Suck my kiss"?

A timeless classic.
