"Kisses On The Wind"-Neneh Cherry (1988)

It always happens. Whenever Neneh Cherry's "Buffalo Stance" gets a spin on the old Windows Media Player, I have to play "Kisses On The Wind" right after it. Something about that Latin n' funk backbeat simmering in the background of Neneh's vocals, gets me groovin' every time. Even though the song hit #8 on the Hot 100 back in 1989, this song is a lesser known gem that seems to get lost in the pudding that is "Buffalo Stance". In fact, alot of singles on Neneh's 1988 debut, Raw Like Sushi become MIA when it comes to that beast of a song. Still "Kisses On The Wind" is a song that I tend to like the most because it's got a great beat, the lyrics tell a story(about a young girl who's hit the puberty jackpot much too soon), and it's just a fun song to sing along to. Sometimes the simplest of songs tend to be the ones that stick in the membrane and have a longer lasting effect, and this is one those songs.

Tee hee hee at the dancing in this vid, still at least they are dancing unlike today...the Spanish monologues are funny in this...I spot door knocker earrings!
