Kiss You All Over Battle
While everyone is busy trying to come up with holiday tunes, I’m taking a bit of a different route.
Holidays are about nostalgia, right? So let’s take a walk down memory lane…
Picture it… Sicily 1928… wait, no! Not THAT far back!
Okay… Picture this: It’s 1978. I’m about 12 years old, and my family has an exchange student living with us. This exchange student was not from another country, but from a reservation in another state. The exchange student is the same age as myself, and has the same taste in music. Every few weeks, she would call home collect and that was how she chose to stay in touch with her family.
On one such day that she has chosen to call her family, this song comes on the radio. Naturally, she’s singing along… and dials 0 for the operator… who hears on his end of the line “I Wanna Kiss You All Overrrrr and Overrrr Again” The operator responds with “Excuse Me?!?” Mortified pre-teen girl hangs up on the operator. We had a good giggle over that and for some reason this memory has stayed with me and every time I hear this song, I remember this and smile.
I believe I have found two worthy contenders for our song today.
The first contender is Trace Adkins
Second Contender: No Mercy
In the event that you are new here, or you have simply forgotten… Here’s a review of how a battle works:
Listen to each of the contenders. Try not to be persuaded by the videos. I like to close my eyes and let the music transport me.
