A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this song is about capturing the moment of that first kiss on a first date -- even if you're being shipped off to the military the next day. The two actors in the video, Megan Hart and Tyler Hilton, are also dating in real life. Obviously, there's some serious kissing, but it's sweet and appropriate for most older kids.
What's the story?
Quartet-turned-trio Gloriana sing about the awkward, amazing last moments of a first date in the single "KISSED YOU (GOOD NIGHT)." The video features real life couple Megan Hart (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) and singer/songwriter Tyler Hilton (One Tree Hill) making the most of a first kiss.
Is it any good?
Gloriana's new, simplified sound and harmonies as a band of three suit them well on this single. Tom Gossin sings the lead vocals and Rachel Reinert sings the "voice" of the female character. It's a sweet but passionate song about the all-too-familiar moments that happen at the end of a first date, and how we choose to make those moments last or fall flat.
