Sixpence followed up their hit with covers!
Sixpence None The Richer is a Christian rock band, mainly known for their hit single Kiss Me, along with their covers of Crowded House Don’t Dream It’s Over and The La’s There She Goes.
The band has endured both breakups and reunions since their 1998 single success with Kiss Me which was included in the soundtrack of the blockbuster She’s All That (‘99).
Following this, the song has managed to get into several films and TV series over the years.
Kiss Me single-handedly propelled the band to worldwide success. Unfortunately, with nothing but covers to follow it up, Sixpence None The Richer fell into the category of a one-hit-wonder band.
Kiss me – Now what?
Since Kiss Me, the band has only had some minor success with a couple of covers.
In 2004, they decided to split up. Following 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 and a Christmas tour.
This must have worked for the group as four years later, another release with new original material followed.
In 2012, Sixpence None The Richer brought us Lost In Transition. Christianity Today gave the album 4/5 stars.
Kiss Me – Chords
Kiss Me uses a static chord for the verse, changing the extension from major to maj7, to dom7, and then back to maj7 again.
The chorus uses a standard progression although we start it from a slightly unusual point.

Kiss Me – Lyrics
Kiss 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.
