The theme I chose for this year is 

Greatest Hits as suggested by AI

It’s important to note that AI was only used for the song suggestion, not in the actual putting together of the post. 

Today our suggested Greatest Hit is:  Kiss

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

"Kiss" is a song composed, written, and produced by American musician Prince. Released by the Paisley Park label as the lead single from Prince and the Revolution's eighth studio album, Parade (1986), on February 5, 1986, it was a No. 1 hit worldwide, holding the top spot of the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for two weeks. The single was certified gold in 1986 for shipments of 1,000,000 copies by RIAA.

The song is ranked No. 85 on the Rolling Stone list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2021, No. 464 in 2010, and No. 461 in 2004. NME ranked the song at No. 4 in their list of The 150 Greatest Singles of All Time, and voted "Kiss" the best single of 1986.

Following Prince's death in April 2016, the song re-charted on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 28 and jumped to No. 23 a week later. The song also reached No. 2 on the French Singles Chart. As of April 30, 2016, it had sold 1.33 million digital copies in the U.S.

Age of Chance and Art of Noise also released versions of the song that were critical and chart successes.



  1. Prince was a musical genius. My favourite album of his is Purple Rain. You forgot to mention Tom Jones recorded that cover with Art of Noise. I like that version better actually.

  2. Found your post via FB A to Z page. At first I thought you were going to be writing about KISS the group, but was pleasantly surprised you were talking about "Kiss" the song... I do a yearly "iPod Shuffle" for my birthday where I let the shuffle decide what song I am going to write about... can't wait to see more of your posts and maybe find some new songs... cheers!

  3. Prince had his own style..the little guy. I too like Tom Jones' version.

  4. What a great choice. Your AI has taste I see. Prince was amazing really. Still not over that loss.
