Kiss Me (With Your Mouth) by Tin Tin

Stephen Duffy made probably the worst career move of his life when, as a founding member of Duran Duran, he split with Nick Rhodes and Jon Taylor before they signed to EMI. This, of course, led to Duran Duran looking for a new lead singer, which led to the recruitment of Simon Le Bon, who's been the lead guy on pipes for Duran Duran for thirty years now.

As a minor consolation prize, we did get this nice little song from Duffy's other group, Tin Tin. This is the original version, and I'm sorry for the crappy audio quality on this video; it was the only copy of the original version I could find. It was released no less than three times between the years 1982 and 1985, although at no point did it do more than become a very minor fixture on the charts, sadly. And it was released as three different artists, first as Tin Tin, second as Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy, and finally simply as Stephen Duffy. This version always was the best one, though; the 1985 was remixed and reproduced into a very different sounding song altogether. That version's quite easy to find, as is the extended "U.S. Mix", but this is the perfect size and the perfect version.
