No. 73: Jeff Bates, ‘Long, Slow Kisses’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs
What’s the next best thing to hearing Conway Twitty sing his classic love songs? Jeff Bates belting out romantic tunes. Bates’ ‘Long, Slow Kisses’ was a no-brainer when this Top 100 Country Love Songs list was compiled. The song’s sexy lyrics — penned by Ben Hayslip, Gordon Bradberry and Bates — will put any couple in the mood to rediscover their love for one another, if you catch our drift.
‘Long, Slow Kisses’ was originally a track on Bates’ 2003 debut album, ‘Rainbow Man,’ but was re-recorded for his sophomore project, ‘Leave the Light On.’ The tune was the lead single from the album and became the singer’s first Top 20 hit single. It is still one of the highlights of his live performances.
