Billie Holiday recorded “This Year’s Kisses” in 1937 with Teddy Wilson and his orchestra. Irving Berlin wrote the song for the 1937 movie “On The Avenue.”
I’m with Billie on “this year’s new romance.” It’s only been remarkable in its absence (mostly self imposed). My crop of kisses, however, has been great! They are frequently Happy Meal or kibble flavored but hey, that’s sweet enough for me! I wish the flavor of the kiss was a bit more indicative of the smoocher’s species but I’ve learned never to look a gift kiss in the mouth… wait… No, that works!
