Hi everyone! I hope your Tuesday is off to a great start! Welcome to Romantic Tuesday! “Besame Mucho” (kiss me generously) has been sung by various artists over the years. Google says the song was written in 1940 by Mexican songwriter Consuelo Velasquez. The song was recognized as one of the most sung and recorded songs by Mexican artists in 1999. However, artists from other parts of the world also sing it too. “Besame Mucho” is also known as one of the most famous boleros, a slow Latin dance song. According to Wikipedia, boleros originate from Spain, Mexico and Cuba.
I included a few versions I enjoy most. I’ve also heard the song by different mariachi bands. My favorite version growing up was by Luis Miguel. I still enjoy the pop sound it has. Back in February, I did a post about him and a few of his songs. In case you missed it, you can take a look at it right here. My post includes a duet he sang with Frank Sinatra and more. Don’t be surprised if you see more Luis Miguel songs here in the future. He’s still one of my favorite singers. Do you have a favorite version of this song? Which one do you like most out of the versions I included? Have a great day, everyone! I’ll be back Wednesday with 915 Art. My apologies on the delay of this segment!
