Kid Rock is back again and he’s dipping his toe into the country world once again. The lines have always kind of blended a little between rock and roll and country. I think it does even more now than it did in the past, but the relationship has always kind of been there. Listen to these lyrics and I’m sure you’ll be taken back to your first kiss.
First Kiss – Kid Rock
We’re having a little bit of nostalgia with this song. And I think that’s alright sometimes. Kid doesn’t do it all the time, but he’s been really good at painting the picture of how things were back in the good old days.
This time he’s looking back on his first real kiss and how life was back then. There are certainly some good things going on right now, but some things you just can’t really go back and live again.
If you grew up in a small town (*raises hand*) then you can certainly relate to the images in this song and in the video. It’s like a mirror of the town where I grew up. All the hanging out on pickups with young love everywhere. Good times.
And who says we can’t go back to those days once in a while? Grab the person you love and go out like it was the first time. There is nothing saying that your upcoming memories can’t be as good as the ones you have from 5, 10 or 20 years ago.
Great song from Kid Rock. I think it fits right in with today’s country music.
