Kissing Songs

There you are having a romantic night in, the candles are lit, the wine (or soda!) was poured, and you are enjoying some sweet kisses. Then all of a sudden the angry man-hating voice of Alanis Morissette in “You Oughta Know” comes blasting over the radio.


Talk about a kissing mood killer! Or imagine if your playlist is on shuffle and starts playing a mix of GWAR, Weird Al, Cannibal Corpse, Lonely Island and the Jonas Brothers.


Hey, we aren’t judging, but then, my friend, you will probably be left kissing your pillow! Your background songs can really make or break the mood, so don’t get caught with a playlist of bad romance music. (And we don’t mean Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”)


Without any further kiss teasing, here are the top 20 kissing songs. This is a list with a wide variety to choose from so that everyone is sure to find a favorite tune or three to kiss to!


1. A Kiss To Build A Dream On – Louis Armstrong

Not only does it mention kissing, but it is sung with the silky, soulful voice of Louis Armstrong. This is a song of pure romance and is a classic choice. This is a favorite of older demographics, because back then, well, people just sang with such unbridled passion and eloquence.


2. Just The Way You Are – Bruno Mars

Keep some of the songs current with this big hearted tune by Mars off of the Doo-wops and Hooligans album. It’s hard not to fall for Mars and his old timey voice (Oldies style) with timeless multi-generational fawning. Everyone loves to be loved for being just themselves after all.


3. Can't Get Enough of Your Love Babe– Barry White

No make out list would be complete without a little Barry White. It may be thought of as a joke these days, but with his deep voice and love filled lyrics, there is a reason he is known for being the artist to go to for kissing songs!


4. Wicked Game – Chris Isaak

Is it the dreamy tune or Isaak’s smooth voice? No one knows for sure, but many authorities on kissing tunes rank this one high on the list, so be sure to include it.


5. Whole Wide World – Wreckless Eric

Would you go the whole wide world to find the perfect kiss? This song is upbeat, has charming lyrics, and has a great tune to kiss to.


6. Kiss From A Rose – Seal

This song has already become a classic song to kiss to, it even has kiss in the title!


7. Crazy For You – Madonna

This is the song for those kissers that love the 80’s, but really Madonna is classic, and this song has great lyrics.


8. You Are So Beautiful – Joe Cocker

An all-time favorite for the romantic at heart. Hearing a song about beauty and love makes for some great smooching.


9. We Found Love – Rihanna

Another fun song to help keep your smooching playlist current.


10. I’ll Make Love To You – Boyz II Men

Yes, it is a little cheesy, very 90’s, but it is also still one of the most popular kissing songs to date. Don’t fight it.


11. Your Body is a Wonderland – John Mayer

There is something about the singer that makes women want to make out. If you are a woman you know what I mean, and if you are a guy, well, just put this on your list.


12. At Last – Etta James

This is a song played at nearly every wedding, as it is romantic and her voice is amazing. It also makes a great kissing song for the romantic at heart that love those long deep passionate kisses.


13. Kiss You All Over – Exile

With lyrics about wanting to taste lips and fill fantasies, this is a song written for a hot and heavy make out session. Sexy!


14. Amazed –Lonestar

This is a good kissing song for those that love country music. It doesn’t get more romantic, or more country then this.


15. What Makes You Beautiful – One Direction

After all, who doesn’t like feeling beautiful while they are locking lips? Another current song to enjoy smooching to.


16. Save The Last Dance For Me – Michael Buble

Pretty much all songs by Buble are smooch worthy as they manage to have a good beat, yet are mellow and always romantic.


17. Your Song – Elton John

Good beat, sweet lyrics, and it’s Elton John, what more do you need? If you want an updated version try out Ewan McGregor’s ditty from the Moulin Rouge movie soundtrack.


18. I Do It For You – Bryan Adams

Yet another singer who makes the girls melt. This song, along with runner up “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?”, are great songs to kiss to.


19. Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye

Come now, you knew this song had to be on here! No hot make out list is complete without a little Marvin on it, and sometimes the obvious choices are the best for good reason.


20. His/Her Favorite Song

Whatever your kissing partner’s favorite song of the moment is, is usually a good choice to kiss to. Favorite songs are often favorites for a reason. Just avoid anything too loud, sad, or silly.


There you have it, the top 20 kissing songs. Of course, what makes a great make-out song to you may be boring to someone else. The key to finding a soundtrack to smooch by is to find songs that both of you like, that have a good beat or are mellow, and that often have lyrics about romance, passion, or are downright sexy. You can make a playlist similar to your kissing style too, slow songs, leading up to faster songs and then slower songs again, or just hot and heavy songs all the way through!


Whatever songs you choose, be it from the above list or not, it is sure to be better than leaving it up to fate and those insane radio DJs!
