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

    On the road to New Orleans
    A spray of stars hit the screen
    As the tenth 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
    Kiss them for me, kiss them for me Writer/s: BUDGIE, MARTIN JOHN MCCARRICK, SIOUXSIE SIOUX, STEVEN SEVERIN

  • Ken T from Mt. Olive, Nc What movie was this on?
  • Pfr from NjVideo came up on an FB feed and remembered hearing it a long time ago. Didn’t waste time downloading it. Great song.
  • James from Florence, KyThis song spent 5 weeks in the #1 position on Billboard's alternative chart in July and August of 1991.
  • Scott from UsaSong has a timeless sound to it. Love me some Siouxsie.
  • Eric from Beaverton, OrI remember hearing this on the radio when it came out in 1991. It was one of my favorites from that time, and listening to this song always brings me back to that time in my life.
  • Liliana from Philadelphia, PaI heard this song for the first time in my life in 2007 through internet radio. By the last verse I knew I needed to look into the brilliant band that created it. I never heard the song before and even though it made top 40 in the US, the loser local radio station never played it (my genre was rock and alternative but they pretty much played American rock all the time). All I can say is that I own all Siouxsie and the Banshees albums currently plus one Creatures (Anima Animus)... I bought Hai! from iTunes not too long ago, but the real album is the next one on my "to do" list. Absolutely love this band.
  • Tom Duncan from Memphis, TnI heard this song just the other day in my car and I loved the sound and the singer's voice. So I downloaded it and I'm driving my wife nuts playing it too often. I do that sometimes until it the song's novelty passes. Then I'll place the song in my top 25. Great rhythm!
