Covers: The Shoop Shoop Song (It’s in His Kiss)

“The Shoop Shoop Song (It’s in His Kiss)” was a big hit for Betty Everett in 1964. It was one of the few American records in the spring of 1964 that withstood the onslaught of the Beatles and the rest of the British Invasion.

I didn’t know until today that the original version was by Merry Clayton in 1963. Cher made it popular again in 1990.

great early performance by Aretha Franklin
