Brief History of Besame Mucho
“Besame Mucho” was written by Consuelo Velázquez in the year 1940. According to many historians, Velazquez was only 15 or 16 when she wrote this song, which says a lot considering this is a love song and Velazquez had never even been kissed before she wrote this song. When asked years later what inspired Consuelo to write Besame Mucho she said it came from her imagination.
Consuelo Velazquez was an amazing musician teaching herself piano beginning at age 4 and then only two years later, gave her first piano concerto at age 6. That is an amazing accomplishment. You can see a video of Consuelo performing Besame Mucho on piano below.
