Bésame Mucho

“Give me a kisse, and to that kisse a score;
Then to that twenty, adde a hundred more;
A thousand to that hundred; so kisse on,
To make that thousand up a million;
Treble that million, and when that is done,
Let's kisse afresh, as when we first begun.”

-
Robert Herrick, "To Anthea (III)" 
(1591-1674)

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%A9same_Mucho:

"Bésame Mucho" (Kiss me a lot) is a song written in 1940 by Mexican songwriter Consuelo Velázquez.[1]

It is one of the most famous boleros, and was recognized in 1999 as the most sung and recorded Mexican song in the world.

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.[2][3]

She was inspired by the piano piece "Quejas, o la Maja y el Ruiseńor" from the 1911 suite Goyescas by Spanish composer Enrique Granados, which he later also included as Aria of the Nightingale in his 1916 opera of the same name.[1]

There are slight differences in the wording at the end of the chorus, regarding the words perderte después meaning "to lose you afterwards". Considering that Velázquez may have been fifteen years old when she wrote the song, this sentence reflects inexperience and innocence. Indeed, a video from "TV Mexicana"[4] shows Consuelo Velázquez playing the piano while the singer sings perderte después. Many interpretations use perderte otra vez ("lose you once again") instead of the original perderte después ("lose you afterwards").

The line "Besame mucho, que tengo miedo a perderte después" means "Kiss me a lot, as I am afraid of losing you afterwards." The word "mucho" may suggest a desire for the kiss to linger, as it may be the couple's last time being together.

An English-language version of the song was written by Sunny Skylar. The lyrics are different from the direct English translation of the original, but retain the Spanish Bésame mucho.

"Bésame Mucho" is also known by translated names such as "Kiss Me Much," "Kiss Me a Lot," "Kiss Me Again and Again," "Embrasse-moi fort," "Stale Ma Bozkavaj," "Suutele minua", "Szeretlek én" and "Mara beboos"...

Besame Mucho

Lyrics by Pascal Sevran, Serge Lebrail
Original music by Consuelo Velázquez Torres Ortiz
Original lyrics by Enrique Granados,
Consuelo Velázquez Torres Ortiz

Sung by Dean Martin (07 June1917 - 25 Dec 1995)


Besame, besame mucho.
Each time I cling to your kiss I hear music divine.
Besame, besame mucho.
Hold me, my darling, and say that you'll always be mine.

This joy is something new, my arms enfolding you.
Never knew this thrill before.
Whoever thought I'd be holding you close to me
Whispering, "It's you I adore"?

Dearest one, if you should leave me,
Each little dream would take wings and my life would be through.
Besame, besame mucho.
Love me forever and make all my dreams come true.

Besame, besame mucho.
Love me forever and make all my dreams come true
