Goth punk band SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES released their knockout glamorous pop song – flavored with a seducing Asian touch – KISS THEM FOR ME in 1991 – 25 years ago.
It was the first single of their 10th long-player, titled Superstition. Siouxsie‘s lyrics were written with sex symbol/actress Jayne Mansfield in mind. Mansfield was a controversial Hollywood party animal, loved (secretly) by many. Kiss Them for Me was also the name of
a 1957 movie with the hot blonde and Cary Grant. Here’s the black haired diva…

It glittered and it gleamed
For the arriving beauty queen
A ring and a car
Now you’re the prettiest by far

No party she’d not attend
No invitation she wouldn’t send
Transfixed by the inner sound
Of your promise to be found

“Nothing or no-one will ever
Make me let you down”

Kiss them for me, I may be delayed
Kiss them for me, if I am delayed

It’s divoon, oh it’s serene
In the fountains pink champagne
Someone carving their devotion
In the heart shaped pool of fame

“Nothing or no one will ever
Make me let you down”

Kiss them for me, I may be delayed
Kiss them for me, I may find myself delayed

On the road to New Orleans
A spray of stars hit the screen
As the 10th impact shimmered
The forbidden candles beamed

Kiss them for me, I may be delayed
Kiss them for me, I may find myself delayed

Kiss them for me, kiss them for me
Kiss them for me, I may find myself delayed
