In the Shadows #8: Besame Mucho

April 2, 2016 at 6:36 pm Leave a comment

“Bésame Mucho” (Kiss me a lot) was written in 1940 by Mexican songwriter Consuelo Velázquez. According to Velázquez herself, she wrote this song even though she had never been kissed yet at the time and kissing, as she heard, was considered a sin.

It is the most recorded Mexican song in history, covered by the Beatles, the Coasters, Bill Evans, Wes Montgomery, João Gilberto, Herb Alpert, and Placido Domingo — among countless others.

As far as I know neither the Ventures nor the Shadows recorded it. However, as I think my version shows, it works well in that style.
