This Day in Pop: Britney releases And Then We Kiss promotional single in 2005 (October 31)

Recommended Posts


On October 31, 2005, Britney Spears released the promotional single And Then We Kiss in Australia and New Zealand. The version of the song included in this single was actually the Junkie XL Remix.

The song was written by Britney, Michael Taylor and Paul Barry, and produced by Taylor and Junkie XL. It was recorded in the same sessions as Breathe on Me (which was also produced by Taylor) since it was intended to be included on In the Zone (2003), but it failed to make the final tracklist. It was also supposed to be the UK & Japan bonus track of Britney & Kevin: Chaotic (2005), but it was ultimately replaced by Over to You Now. Finally, And Then We Kiss (Junkie XL Remix) appeared on Britney's first remix album B in the Mix: the Remixes (2005) as the only original song, as well as its promotional EP Key Cuts from Remixed.

The song didn't receive a music video or live performance, but it managed to peak at #15 on the US Hot Dance Airplay chart and it was #1 hit in Israel. Junkie XL (Thomas Holkenborg) explained he wanted to make the song a 2006 version of Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence. The song appears on 2006's Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova videogame.


Six years later, in September 2011, the original version of the song leaked online, confirmed by Junkie XL to be the real deal.

This song brings out the lesbian in me. Even though I'm a man.

A missed opportunity

A missed opportunity :sobbing_unbelievable_wow_head_shake_no_crying_sobbing_sad:

I know what you mean, but no. No one gave an eff when this single was released. No one cared about this remix compilation either (WHICH I STILL THINK IS AMAZING). Even if Britney had kept releasing singles with videos from the impeccable "Glory" no one would have cared. The GP works in mysterious ways: they'd rather be hitting their WAPs against the floor than seeing a pop superstar maturing in front of their eyes. I think we should stop with that discourse, staying on top is really hit or miss and it depends on whatever's going on in the world at the moment, not just on having or not C.U.N.T. hah! (charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent, which is basically Britney's essence)

Do you want to say that Enjoy The Silence remains you of And Then We Kiss?:ohmygawd_britney_omg_shocked_wow_holy_crap_gasp_shocked_itz_in_the_zone_white: I adore And Then We Kiss so much because of a man I spend time with  at the time ATK came out and he was a huge Depeche Mode fan.:shocked_what_xfactor_britney_pink_surprised_wow: What a hazard.:OMGney_britney_surprised_no_way_shocked_wide_eyes: ( I mean that I loves Brit´s song so much and it turned out that is sounds like his favorite band.)
