Bésame Mucho

Song Sketch

Photo from here

I've always loved this song - so dramatic and intense - I can almost see Antonio Banderas dancing with Cyd Charisse to this one. I love how it was written by a 15-year-old girl - I know that was probably the most dramatic and intense time of my life as well.

I tried to study the pronunciation by listening to a million versions of it (well, three) on YouTube so I hope I got it right-ish!

Be sure to vote on which of the four Beatles is your favorite songwriter - the winning Beatle gets the fabulous honor to have one of their songs covered by me.

If you would like a copy of this song for you, just let me know in a comment! If it's your first request, please leave your email address as well.

P.S. Feel free to follow me! I promise only ever to lead you to bright, sunny places!


  1. I never knew it was written by a 15 year old, the height of dramatic times indeed! lol I would love a copy!

  2. wow, great job!
    i'd love a copy

  3. Suena muy bien!

    Since 'Bésame Mucho' has been sung may times by Paul, I would like to hear you do something by John (he also wrote sweet and charming songs, like ‘Julia’).

  4. Nice choice Emma, it sounds súper bien & your accent es correcto, good job girl, you definitely have to sing more Spanish songs :)
    I didn't know that a 15-year-old girl composed wrote the lyrics :)

  5. Wow what a beautiful song! I don't think I've ever heard it before, but it's lovely!

  6. Was this your Beatles cover? It's a cool song anyways. And thanks for following me on Beatles Songwriting Academy.

    Modern Ragtime is a cool niche genre wise. I love Scott Joplin - though the closest I've gotten to showing that is one The Ballad of NDC - ragtime/vaudeville filtered through Billy Bragg...

  7. I love it!! I'd love a copy, please!!
    Also, love the Rudolph Valentino photo!

  8. Beautifully done, Emma! i didn't know it was written by a 15 years old.. wow! can i please get a copy? zlupsita[at]gmail. Have a great rest of the week :)

  9. Awesome! Send a copy please! Great work and it is so nice to have you doing the song sketches again!

  10. I love your version so much!!! Please send me a copy to play on my show?

  11. Loved it!!!! Sooooooooooooooo glad you are back!!! and now I will have Monday mornings to look forward to! I would love a copy, please! (and any Beatle cover you do ;-) )


Thank you for leaving your musings! I appreciate each and every one.
