ترانه زیبای بسامه موچو شاید مشهور ترین ترانه در جهان باشد
آیا میدانستید که سازنده این ترانه…یک خانم مکزیکی ست
The song “Bésame mucho” (Kiss me a lot) was written by a young Mexican woman who had never been kissed.
This article is a tribute to Consuelo Velázquez, who died January 22, 2005, at the age of 84.
Consuelo Velázquez was one of Mexico’s best known modern songwriters. She wrote her most famous song – “Bésame mucho” – before her 20th birthday. When asked, years later, whose love had inspired the powerful lyrics, she replied that she had written it before she had ever been kissed, and said that the entire song was a “product of imagination”.
Quite some imagination! The song has been translated into more than 20 languages, and been sung in many different styles, by dozens of artists ranging from The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Wes Montgomery, The Morton Gould Orchestra, Andy Russell, Pedro Vargas, Linda Ronstadt, Valentino’s Sax, Diana Krall and Plácido Domingo to Sammy Davis Jr., Magdalena Zárate, Jose Carreras, Joao Alberto, Elvis Presley and Mexican heart-throb Luis Miguel.
