Friday Lyriz Quiz

The modern-day musical landscape, my friends, is a sad one. As one of my friends once said, it didn’t take that long to move from “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” (Beatles) to “I Wanna F*ck You” (Akon).  Chivalry and romance have flown the coop. Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips.

But these songs talk of a simpler romantic act – the kiss.  All titles have the word “kiss,” or some variation, included.
