Radio XIXX, side B, track 12: “Kiss” by Art Of Noise and Tom Jones

The Art Of Noise + Tom Jones - KissOh, Art Of Noise and Tom Jones, brilliant!  Brilliant, I say!  At the time I didn’t realize just how brilliant this song was, all I knew that this song had Tom Jones in it, and I love me some Tom Jones.  I had no idea this was a song by Prince.  I just thought Tom Jones had a new hit on his hands, and that was all right by me.  If I were one to believe in reincarnation, there are a lot of people who I’d like to come back as, and high up on my list is Tom Jones.  No, not because women have been throwing their panties at you for decades, Tom Jones, although I won’t lie, that would be a bonus.  No, Tom Jones, I just want to sing like you.  There is so much raw power in that voice.  If I’m ever in a karaoke bar, which doesn’t happen too often, but when it does, the first song I always pick is “It’s Not Unusual”, followed usually by “What’s New, Pussycat?”  Because I want to be you, Tom Jones, and if you’ve ever heard me sing, you know I’m not even close.  But when they came up with the term “he belted out a song”, you are the person they designed that phrase for, Tom Jones.  Were there a Tom Jones-only radio station when I was a kid, I would have foregone all these other artists and just recorded you continuously, Tom Jones.  Not even kidding.  You are the man, Tom Jones, but you already know that.

“Kiss”

You don’t have to be beautiful

Ta turn me on

I just need your body, baby

From dusk ’til dawn

Ya don’t need experience

Ta turn me out

You just leave it all up to me
I’ll show you what it’s
All about

You don’t have to be rich
To be my girl
You don’t have to be cool
To rule my world
Ain’t no particular sign
I’m more compatible with
I just want your extra time and your

Kiss

You gotta not talk dirty, baby
If you wanna
Impress me
 
(ah ah ah)

You can’t be too flirty, mama
I know how ta
Undress me

Let me be your fantasy
And maybe (baby) you could be mine

You just leave it all up ta me

We can have a good time

You don’t have to be rich
To be my girl
You don’t have to be cool
To rule my world
Ain’t no particular sign
I’m more compatible with
I just want your extra time and your

Kiss

Think I better dance now

<awesome Art Of Noise jam>

Women and girls
Rule my world
I say they rule my world

Act your age, mama
(not your shoe size) Not your shoe size, maybe we could
Do the twirl

You don’t have to watch “Dynasty”

Ta have an attitude

You gotta leave it all up ta me
My love
Will be your food

You don’t have to be rich
To be my girl
You don’t have to be cool
To rule my world
Ain’t no particular sign
I’m more compatible with
I just want your extra time and your

Kiss
