Musical Montage: Sixpence None the Richer “Kiss Me”

Hitching their wagon to two of the biggest teen sensations of the late 90s, Sixpence None the Richer saw their biggest in the US “Kiss Me” reach #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 after it was featured in the movie She’s All That, as well as on Dawson’s Creek.  “Kiss Me” actually debuted the year before She’s All That in 1998 and was #90 on the Hot 100 and then dropped out the following week.  After She’s All That debuted in January of 1999, “Kiss Me” re-entered the Hot 100 at #91 and stayed on the chart for 33 weeks, peaking at #2 in February of 1999 and ended the year as the #6 song of 1999.  The original music video for the song had slightly higher cinematic ambitions than She’s All That, paying tribute to the legendary French director Francois Truffaut and his movie, Jules et Jim, with a black and white motif paying tribute to specific scenes.  After the song exploded from its appearance in She’s All That and Dawson’s Creek, two new music videos were made with the band watching clips from either the movie or the TV show, depending on the version, and the She’s All That version featuring Freddie Prinze Jr and Rachael Leigh Cook.  The Dawson’s Creek version was VH1’s #1 video for the month of May in 1999.  You can check out the She’s All That version of the music video below.
