Your kiss of fire

Reply Tue 22 May, 2012 01:11 pm
A song about unadulterated sexual passion that very few of us have ever experienced, myself included.

I touch your lips and all at once the sparks go flying
Those devil lips that know so well the art of lying.
And though I see the danger still the flames grow higher.
I know I must surrender to your kiss of fire.

Just like a torch you set the soul within me burning.
I must go on along the road of no returning
And though it burns me and it turns me into ashes
My whole world crashes without your kiss of fire

I can't resist you, what good is there in trying.
What good is there denying, you're all that I desire
Since first I kissed you, my heart was yours completely.
If I'm a slave, then it's a slave I want to be.
Don't pity me, don't pity me

Give me your lips, the lips you only let me borrow.
Love me tonight and let the devil take tomorrow.
I know that I must have your kiss although it dooms me
And though it consumes me, your kiss of fire

Remember it well. That was a big, big hit in the 1950s. Forget who the original artist was but there were a number of "covers."

@Lustig Andrei,
Louis Armstrong or Billy Eckstine...


For more fun, look up the history behind "Ring of Fire" by June (Carter) Cash. Only she wasn't "Cash" when she wrote it, she was in love with the married Johnny Cash.. Big scandal.

"I fell in to a burning ring of fire...."

His ex-wife claimed he wrote the song about June's erm...lady parts.

@Joe Nation,
Certainly not Satchmo. Mr. B maybe. I just don't recall who had it as a Top 10 hit.

All the kids are doing it.

Lester Allen and Robert Hill were basking in the fame and glory of their new hit “Kiss of Fire”, when someone finally noticed that it was oddly similar to the immortal tango “El Choclo”…in fact after intense proceedings they finally conceded that it was in fact “El Choclo” and thereafter, on all sheet music, the name of “Angel Villoldo” the orignal composer, preceded theirs…Kiss of fire was a major hit for Georgia Gibbs in 1952 reaching all the way to number 2 on the Billboard Charts…another popular version was the one by Louis Armstrong “Satchmo” which was recorded on March 19, 1955…other celebrated versions were by Nat King Cole, Connie Francis and in Finland, by the “King of Finnish Tango”, Olavi Virta…seeking to capitalize on the immense popularity of ”Kiss of Fire” a film, directed by Joseph M. Newman and starring Jack Palance, was released in 1955…part of the background music is a flamenco like version of “Kiss of Fire”…

Thank you, edgar. Georgia Gibbs is who I was thinking of. I see those lyrics and I hear a female voice singing, not Satchmo's hoarse croak.
