At the Democratic National Convention in 2000, Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, kissed awkwardly for three whole seconds … and the media exploded. This has to be one of the most awkward kisses of all time — was he trying to swallow her? (Photo: Associated Press)

 

5. Gone with the Wind

From the 1939 movie near the top of the American Film Institute’s best flicks of all time: “I want you to faint. This is what you were meant for. None of the fools you’ve ever know have kissed you like this, have they?” SWOON.

 

6. Britney Spears and Madonna

Britney Spears and Madonna shocked the world by kissing (with tongue!) at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. The image was apparently so appalling that some newspapers had to apologize for placing it on the front page. If the pop stars were doing it for shock value and attention, they definitely succeeded. (Photo: Associated Press)

 

7. A Royal Upset

In 1974’s The Godfather Part II, mob boss Michael Corleone (played by Al Pacino) kisses his brother Fredo (John Cazale) after revealing that he knew of his betrayal (and so Fredo was all but guaranteed to sleep with the fishes). “I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart.”

 

10. Madonna and Drake

Madonna must go around just kissing everyone, but the reaction she got from Drake on stage at the Coachella festival this year is probably not what she expected. Madonna has said it was planned, while Drake has said to not confuse his shock with disgust. We guess without the truth, all we have is this image forever burned into our memories.

 

There are so many more than can fit on one list … what are your favorite kisses of all time?
