Radio XXXIXL, side A, track 3: “Kisses On The Wind” by Neneh Cherry

Neneh Cherry - Kisses On The WindOh, Neneh Cherry, I thought Paula Abdul sang this song.  For like ever.  But apparently her song is “Blowing Kisses In The Wind”.  While the titles are similar, I should be at least a little ashamed of myself that I made such a mistake.  While I love both songs, once you hear them both, there is no question about who sings what.  And if you’re asking me to choose between you and Paula Abdul, Neneh Cherry, you can just forget it.  That’s the kind of decision that could only be determined by King Solomon himself.  Let’s just leave it at that I would be fine if either of you blew kisses to me.  On the wind, in the wind, near the wind, whatever you’re the most comfortable with.  As long as kisses are involved from both of you to me, you ladies do what you need to do.

“Kisses On The Wind”

 <awesome Neneh Cherry jam>

Down this wiild street walks
Walks a child with no place
Of ever bein’ as young
As her sister is

A local neighborhood crush
The boys would hide out and watch
Her hangin’ washin’ on the liine

All the time

More like a woman she
Talks like ooone

She was the first girl
She was the first girl ta turn the boys ooon

Boys, boys
Wrapped around her finger

So young
Makin’ love was only dreamin’

This girl
She’s got another story
When they are gone she blows them kisses on the wind

At the corner shop
Halfway down the block
All the radios pumpin’ to the way she walks

Past the fly boy’s arm
Where her name’s engraved
“Sweet Liberty”
Is what it says

More like a woman she
Dressed like ooone

She was the first girl
She was the first girl ta turn the boys ooon

Boys, boys
Wrapped around her finger

So young
Makin’ love was only dreamin’

This girl
She’s got another story
When they are gone she blows them kisses on the wind

<awesome Neneh Cherry jam>

The price of puberty’s got
A way of showin’

It doesn’t come in easy staaages

Her mother’s face in the pot
Won’t ever leave it
She needs a bell to ring the chaaanges

More like a woman she
Walked like ooone

She was the first girl
She was the first girl ta turn the boys ooon

Boys, boys
Wrapped around her finger

So young
Makin’ love was only dreamin’

This girl
She’s got another story
When they are gone she blows them kisses on the wind

Boys, boys
Wrapped around her finger

So young
Makin’ love was only dreamin’

This girl
She’s got another story
When they are gone she blows them kisses on the wind

Boys, boys
Wrapped around her finger

So young
Makin’ love was only dreamin’

This girl
She’s got another story
When they are gone she blows them kisses on the wind

Boys, boys
Wrapped around her finger

So young
Makin’ love was only dreamin’

This girl
She’s got another story
