During performances at the Ivy League school, a female audience member would be brought onstage to decide whether or not a man from the crowd could kiss her. Noa Wollstein, who wrote the column, claimed the song's message is misogynistic and that too many women have been pulled on stage for unwanted encounters. I have watched mothers, who have come to see their child's performance, be pulled up to the stage only to have tension generated between them and the kid they came to support. In a response published in the newspaper, Tigertones' President Wesley Brown apologized to anyone made uncomfortable by the tradition. He said the group won't perform the song until it can find a way to do so without offending any audience members.
Originally recorded by American actor Samuel Wright in his film role as Sebastian , "Kiss the Girl" is a calypso ballad ; the song's lyrics encourage a young man to kiss his female love interest before it is too late. This song is written in the key of C Major. It took place in the scene where Ariel and Eric are in a boat and Sebastian tries to bring the mood. This rendition peaked at number 52 on the Hot Country Songs charts. The video shows Andre performing the song in a recording studio.
