Kiss on My List – Daryl Hall & Rob Thomas

Kiss on My List” is a 1981 song recorded by Daryl Hall and John Oates. It was written by Janna Allen and Daryl Hall, and produced by Hall and Oates. It was the third single from their album Voices, and became their second Billboard Hot 100 number-one single (after “Rich Girl” in 1977). While two other songs from the album had returned the duo to chart activity, it was the success of “Kiss on My List” that confirmed the start of the duo’s sustained run as one of American pop’s top-selling acts, a run that lasted into 1989. According to Daryl Hall, Eddie Van Halen copied the synth part of this song and used it for the song “Jump” by Van Halen. “Kiss on My List” can be heard in the films She’s Out of My League and You Again.

Robert Kelly “Rob” Thomas (born February 14, 1972) is an American rock recording artist and songwriter. He is the primary songwriter and lead singer of the band Matchbox Twenty. Thomas also records and performs as a solo artist. Thomas earned three Grammy awards for co-writing and singing on the Carlos Santana triple-platinum hit “Smooth”, on the album Supernatural in 1999. He has also lent his songwriting talents to such artists as Tom Petty, Willie Nelson, Mick Jagger, Marc Anthony, Pat Green, Taylor Hicks, Travis Tritt and Daughtry. Since 1995, his band has released a string of hit singles to radio including “Push”, “3 A.M.”, “Real World”, “Back 2 Good”, “Bent”, “If You’re Gone”, “Mad Season”, “Disease”, “Unwell”, “Bright Lights”, “How Far We’ve Come”, and “She’s So Mean”. In 2004, the Songwriters Hall of Fame awarded Thomas its first Starlight Award, recognizing young songwriters who have already had a lasting influence in the music industry. Wikipedia®

Kiss On My List Lyrics:
My friends wonder why I call you all of the time.
What can I say.
I don’t feel the need to give such secrets away.
You think maybe I need help, no, I know that Im right.
Im just better off not listening to friends advice.

When they insist on knowing my bliss.
I tell them this.
When they want to know what the reason is.
I only smile when I lie, then I tell them why.
(because your kiss) your kiss is on my list.
(because your kiss) your kiss is on my list.
Because your kiss is on my list of the best things in life.
(because your kiss) your kiss is on my list.
(because your kiss) your kiss I can’t resist.

I go crazy wondering what there is to really see.
Did the night just take up your time, cause it means more to me.
Sometimes I forget what Im doing, I don’t forget what I want.
Regret what Ive done, regret you? I couldnt go on.
And if you insist on knowing my bliss.

Ill tell you this.
If you want to know what the reason is.
Ill only smile when I lie, then I’ll tell you this.

Lyrics & music: janna allen, daryl hall.
