Kiss And Tell

by

Bryan Ferry



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Ferry wrote this in response to a tell-all book by Jerry Hall, who was once his girlfriend. Hall wrote some not-so-complimentary things about Ferry in the book. (thanks, Thomas - Marion, IN)
This was used as the theme song to the film Bright Lights, Big City, adapted from the popular Jay McInerney novel.
Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies appear in the video. Clearly, Ferry featured them to draw attention to the song's theme. Keeler is the Monica Lewinski of England, and the scandal that she and Rice-Davies started, which became known as The Profumo Affair (after John Profumo, the British Secretary of State for War), was a major story. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA, for above 2)
