Friday Mix Tape: 10 Songs All About Makin’ Out

Pin it

This morning I flipped on the radio to start my morning off right, only to hear Pink hate singing at me. Blow Me (One Last Kiss) sounds like a dozen other Pink songs (seriously, (when does she not lean on singing over a relentless beat with angry force?), but it did inspire me to find other songs dedicated to kissing in all its forms. Few do it sexier than Prince, more playfully than The Shangri Las, or cheesier than Hall & Oates. No matter how you enjoy making time to make out, salute the art of kissing with this Friday’s selection of tunes.

Writer’s Note: It would appear that Prince doesn’t allow his music to see the light of YouTube. Our loss is not his gain. Prince’s “Kiss” is replaced by the Red Hot Chili Peppers; what they lack in subtly, they make up for with penis socks.
