The Non-Title Title Track of the Week? You Decide!

The title is contained in the opening line of the first track of the album. Now, the song is called "The Kiss", while the album is called Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me. Does it count? Whaddaya think? Please weigh in via comment. Thanks!

I vote yes. I saw The Cure on this tour. Luckily my drugs were timed just right.

No. They are clearly using their fame and stature to break grammar rules.

No one is above grammar.

That's what I think, at least.

The lyrics remindd me of an old Yoko Ono tune that went, "Kiss, kiss, kiss...kiss me love." Someone at my mom's church claimed that the "kiss kiss kiss" part would be "six six six" backwards, and thus Yoko must be a Satan worshipper. Now, "kiss me, kiss me, kiss me"... I guess that would sound something like "eeem six eeem six eeem six" which sounds like gibberish to me, but I'll bet is still regarded with heavy suspicion by my mom's old church.

My mom also wouldn't buy 'Comet' cleanser because of the moon symbol indicating that the Moonies were in the cleaning business but somehow she still let me own albums by Knights In the Service of Satan.

The entire reason for this post is because I argue that it doesn't count. Not that both the song and the album aren't among my favorites, but because it is the first track and contains a portion of the title. If the song were called "Your Tongue is like Poison," then it would be a non-title title track. As it stands it is a quasi-title track.
