“Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow
feeling warm inside because you're close in heart.”

- 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


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shoop_Shoop_Song_%28It%27s_in_His_Kiss%29:   

"The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)" is a song written by 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 Cher in 1990...

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""...[1]

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...

Two opposing candidates for county office happened to be sitting next to each other in the local diner.

One turned to the other and said, "You know why I'm going to win this election? Because of my 'personal touch.' For example, I always tip waitresses really well and then ask them to vote for me."

"Oh, really?" replied the other. "I always tip a nickel and ask them to vote for you."

The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)

Written and composed by Don Gibson , 1963

Recorded by Betty Everett, 1964
(23 Nov 1939 - 19 Aug 2001)


Does he love me I want to know
How can I tell if he loves me so
Is it in his eyes?
Oh no! You'll be deceived
Is it in his sighs?
Oh no! He'll make believe
If you want to know if he loves you so
It's in his kiss
That's where it is

Is it in his face?
Oh no! That's just his charms
In his warm embrace?
Oh no! That's just his arms
If you want to know if he loves you so
It's in his kiss
That's where it is
It's in his kiss
That's where it is

Kiss him and squeeze him tight
Find out what you want to know
If it's love, if it really is
It's there in his kiss

How about the way he acts
Oh no! That's not the way
And you're not list'nin' to all I say
If you wanna know if he loves you so
It's in his kiss
That's where it is
It's in his kiss
That's where it is

Hug him and squeeze him tight
Find out what you want to know
If it's love, if it really is
It's there in his kiss

How about the way he acts
Oh no! That's not the way
And you're not listnin' to all I say
If you wanna know if he loves you so
It's in his kiss
That's where it is

It's in his kiss
That's where it is
It's in his kiss
That's where it is

It's in his kiss
That's where it is
It's in his kiss
That's where it is
