Yet another 30 day music challenge
Day 4: A song that explains your first kiss.
My first kiss was a bit of a disaster. I liked the boy a lot - we’d been friends since childhood - but I hadn’t been feeling well and looked particularly terrible that day, plus he was already dating a girl who I thought was really sweet and pretty, so I couldn’t imagine why on earth he would want to kiss me. When he did it, completely out of the blue, all I could keep thinking was, “Oh my god, this is my very first kiss and I’m already the other woman!” So I’m going with Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin, not only because that’s how I felt, but also because Zeppelin was the boy’s favorite band, and I think we had gone down to his basement to listen to one of their albums earlier that afternoon. In fact, I think that’s what he’d used as the ruse to lure me in.
In honor of International Kissing Day, I give you this scene from Cinema Paradiso. You know the one I mean.
