Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy began his music career when he met bassist John Taylor. Along with keyboardist Nick Rhodes, the three pretty boys formed our favorite New Romantics, Duran Duran. Duffy served as the original vocalist of the band before Mr. Le Bon became their famous face. He eventually went on to leave the band and sign his own deal as Tin Tin in 1980, before Duran Duran even scored their first hit.
Tin Tin is remembered for his dance club favorite "Kiss Me." The memorable chorus ("Kiss me with your mouth / Your love is better than wine / But wine is all I have / Will your love ever be mine?") is taken from the book Song of Songs. One does have to wonder though- What else exactly would you kiss Tin Tin with?
There are two versions of the song - the original released in 1982 and then again in 1985 (featured on the album The Ups and Downs) with a new mix and added samples. Presented here is the edited version of the original from 82, though it may be worth your time to track down the 7 minute 12" version of the song as well... more dancing & smooching than you can handle! Let's work it, c'mon...
