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"...

    From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 08/13/17 - "Run through the rain":

A little girl had been shopping with her mom in Walmart. She must have been 6 years old, this beautiful red haired, freckle faced image of innocence.

It was pouring outside, the kind of rain that gushes over the top of rain gutters, so much in a hurry to hit the earth it has no time to flow down the spout. We all stood there, under the awning, just inside the door of the Walmart.

We waited, some patiently, others irritated because nature messed up their hurried day.

I am always mesmerized by rainfall. I got lost in the sound and sight of the heavens washing away the dirt and dust of the world. Memories of running, splashing so carefree as a child came pouring in as a welcome reprieve from the worries of my day.

Her little voice was so sweet as it broke the hypnotic trance we were all caught in, 'Mom let's run through the rain,' she said.

'What?' Mom asked.

'Let's run through the rain!' she repeated.

'No, honey. We'll wait until it slows down a bit,' Mom replied.

The young child waited a minute and repeated: 'Mom, let's run through the rain.'

'We'll get soaked if we do,' Mom said.

'No, we won't, Mom. That's not what you said this morning,' the young girl said as she tugged at her mom's arm.

'This morning? When did I say we could run through the rain and not get wet?'

'Don't you remember? When you were talking to Daddy about his cancer, you said, 'If God can get us through this, He can get us through anything!'

The entire crowd stopped dead silent. I swear you couldn't hear anything but the rain. We all stood silently. No one left. Mom paused and thought for a moment about what she would say.

Now some would laugh it off and scold her for being silly. Some might even ignore what was said. But this was a moment of affirmation in a young child's life, a time when innocent trust can be nurtured so that it will bloom into faith.

'Honey, you are absolutely right. Let's run through the rain. If GOD lets us get wet, well, maybe we just need washing,' Mom said.

Then off they ran. We all stood watching, smiling and laughing as they darted past the cars and yes, through the puddles. They got soaked. They were followed by a few who screamed and laughed like children all the way to their cars. And yes, I did. I ran. I got wet. I needed washing.

Circumstances or people can take away your material possessions, they can take away your money, and they can take away your health. But no one can ever take away your precious memories. So, don't forget to make time and take the opportunities to make memories every day.

"To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven."

I HOPE YOU STILL TAKE THE TIME TO RUN THROUGH THE RAIN.

     Thank you, Doodler! Happy 48th Anniversary!

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
