Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me is the seventh studio album by British alternative rock band The Cure. Released in 1987, this album helped put The Cure into the American mainstream, becoming their first album to reach the Billboard Top 40.
Though a double album, it was released as a single CD, and single cassettes. A limited vinyl edition came with an extra 6 track 12" (orange vinyl, featuring the songs ""Sugar Girl", "Snow In Summer", "Icing Sugar", "A Japanese Dream", "Breathe" and "A Chain Of Flowers"). One track, "Hey You!!!", was removed from the original CD release (due to the 74:33 redbook time restriction on the CD format at the time) rather than issue it as a 2CD set, but was included on all cassette releases.
Robert Smith has stated that he wrote the song "Shiver and Shake" about Lol Tolhurst's diminishing role in the band. This is also the last studio album band member Porl Thompson played keyboards on; he played guitar only on all subsequent studio releases. Special guest Andrew Brennan played the saxophone on "Hey You!!!" and "Icing Sugar."
Kiss Me continues to dominate the band's live set; the 2008 "4Tour" included performances of "The Kiss", "Torture", "Catch", "Why Can't
