“Bésame Mucho” (“Kiss me a lot”) is a song written in 1940 by Mexican songwriter Consuelo Velázquez. It is considered one of the most popular songs of the 20th century and of all times. It is also one of the most important hymns in the history of Latin music and It is also the most recorded and covered song in Spanish of all time . A famous 1956 version is sung by Trio Los Panchos and female vocalist Gigliola Cinquetti. An English lyric was written by Sunny Skylar.

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.

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.
