‘Bésame mucho’ is the title of a song written in 1932 and released in 1940 by the Mexican pianist and composer Consuelo Velázquez (1916-2005).1 It is widely considered one of the most popular songs of the 20th century and of all time. It is also one of the most important anthems in the history of Latin music.

The song was written by Consuelito Velázquez from Jalisco and the first to perform it was Emilio Tuero.​ Over time, the song was passed from one artist to another with different adaptations, with versions by Lucho Gatica and Pedro Infante some of the best known, as well as an English version by The Beatles.

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.[8][9]

She was inspired by the piano piece “Quejas, o la Maja y el Ruiseñor”, 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.

(*) The Beatles

The Beatles also performed ‘Bésame mucho’, along with 14 other pieces, during the failed audition at Decca studios, on January 1, 1962. Paul McCartney sang as a soloist. They would play it again at the EMI studio audition (when they finally won the recording contract) on June 6, 1962.

Paul McCartney chose this song from “Bésame mucho” because it had already become the ‘Gold Standard’ of romantic music.

The recording of ‘Bésame mucho’ at the EMI studio audition was included on the 1995 compilation album Anthology. It was also performed by the group in 1969 at the Apple studio and published in the documentary film Let it be.
