'Besame Mucho' Composer Velazquez Dies

We remember Consuelo Velazquez, whose song "Besame Mucho" became a standard in many languages and styles of music. Velazquez died Saturday in Mexico City at the age of 84. "Besame Mucho" became a big band hit during World War II and was later recorded by many artists over the years, including the Beatles and Nat King Cole.
