Interpol – “Untitled“, the first track off Turn on the Bright Lights, made for some pretty perfect first kiss music for me. The very subtle resolution of the ostinato heard in the guitar and guitar’s reverb, the longer-than-normal intro, and the slow build in volume make for a wonderfully anticipatory entry. Apparently (and unbeknownst to me at the time), I’m not the only one who thought it was great first kiss music, as it was featured in the episode of Friends where Rachel and Joey had their first kiss. The whole song has a total of 11 words. It’s a brilliant track, and of course Interpol is my favorite band.
