Sixpence None The Richer

Sixpence None The Richer is a Christian rock band mainly known for their hit single ‘Kiss Me’, along with their covers of Crowded House’s ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ and The La’s ‘There She Goes’.

The band have had both breakups and reunions since their 1998s success with ‘Kiss Me’ which was included in the soundtrack of the blockbuster ‘She’s All That’. Following this, the song has managed to get into several films and TV series over the years.

‘Kiss Me’ really did propel the band to worldwide success, dubbing Sixpence None The Richer a “one-hit wonder band”.

Kiss me – Now what?

Since ‘Kiss Me’, Sixpence None The Richer have had most of their success with covers.

In 2004, they decided to split up. After a few different solo career attempts, the members decided to team up again for another album.

2008 saw the release of ‘The Dawn Of Grace’, a Christmas album that brought the band back to their Christian roots. Since the Christmas tour, Sixpence None The Richer have been working on a new album.

The chorus uses a standard progression although we start it from a slightly unusual point. This small change makes it feel new enough to be a hit.

Kiss Me – Lyrics

Kiss MeKiss me, out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You’ll wear those shoes and I will wear that dress
Kiss me, beneath the milky twilight
