“Love is missing someone whenever you're
apart, but somehow
- Kay Knudsen
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today is Valentine's Day, so I want to send all of y'all my love!
BONUS #1 - It's in His Kiss - Betty Everett, 1964
BONUS #2 - It's in His Kiss - Cher, 1990
|"The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)" is a song written
Rudy Clark. The song was made a hit when recorded by
Betty Everett, who hit No. 1 on the
Cashbox magazine R&B charts with it in 1964. Recorded by dozens of
artists and groups around the world in the decades since, the song
became an international hit when remade by
Dave Marsh in his book The Heart of Rock and Soul opines that Betty Everett's version, "while [credited] as a solo performance is one of the finest girl group hits, undoubtedly the best one made outside the genre's New York City/Philadelphia/Los Angeles "axis""...
Cher's remake was cut for the soundtrack of her 1990 film Mermaids in which it played under the closing credits, and the single's U.S. release coincided with the November release of the film. It peaked at number thirty three on the Billboard Hot 100, and number one in the United Kingdom, where it remained for five weeks, selling a total of 520,000 copies, making it one of the biggest-selling singles by a female artist in Britain in the 1990s. The song was Cher's first solo number one there. At the time, her previous number one in the United Kingdom had been in 1965 with her then husband Sonny Bono and their first hit: "I Got You Babe".
Cher's "The Shoop Shoop Song" also topped the charts in Austria, Republic of Ireland, New Zealand, Norway and Spain; the single achieved a number two peak in Australia and top ten status in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland...
An episode of Tiny Toon Adventures also featured an animated music video of the original version, with Babs Bunny lip-syncing to the song...
