The 6th of July was chosen to celebrate a widely used expression of affection: the kiss.

We press our lips against someone else's lips (or cheek, or hand or whatever...) to show our feelings of love, passion, respect, greeting, farewell, and so many others.

Take a look at this presentation of famous kisses of art and films. How many of them can you identify?

What about some songs about kissing now? Here you are!

The first one was released in 1972 by Bobby Vinton.


This one was recorded in 1980 by the Irish singer and composer Gilbert O'Sullivan.
