You can take your pick from the usual suspects over which screen kiss/kissing is the most passionate it is harder to choose the best song with the word kiss in the title. As the clientele around here is of a certain age and in all likelihood have a hot chocolate before bed I take it that it’ll be It Started with a Kiss for you. Or something from further back in the mists of time. Ahh, Hovis, Dvorak and a boy with a bike.
Me, I’d give second place to The Judas Kiss by Metallica and number one to this slice of B-movie magnificence.
When it comes to kissing poetry you’ve got to go with the Rodins, I mean Romans.
Volo basio vos quondam
Volo basio vos bis
Volo basio vos milliies milies
Quod basium vos insquequo ego intereo
Science states that the benefits of kissing are two-fold. It is stress-relieving, lowers cholesterol and improves the cardiovascular system. Hold on, that’s three-fold. Maybe there’s more? It probably can help you whistle better, floss your teeth without the floss and let me speculate with mad conjecture, help the environment. All those love heart balloons disgorging from mixed mouths floating in the atmosphere must have a positive effect on the ozone.
Of all the different cultural kiss movements, the Eskimo kiss looks the most romantic. I defy anyone to rub noses with a stranger and not to smile at the same time. The wiggling conks will warm the coldest heart. Unlike the horrible French fashion for cheek pecking. This is a minefield to tread. I’m surprised health and safety haven’t banned it. Not everyone knows the correct etiquette and there must be many banged head injuries sustained.
Which brings us to the Glasgow Kiss. x.
