Sealed with a Kiss

“A kiss seals two souls for a moment in time.”

- Levende Waters

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Mmmm - this golden oldie makes me want to dance...  Actually, it reminds me of all those great summer dances we had:

BONUS - - Sealed with a Kiss - Brian Hyland


"Sealed with a Kiss" is the title of a song written by Peter Udell and Gary Geld. It was first recorded by The Four Voices in 1960 as a single, but their recording was not a hit.

In 1962, Brian Hyland, who often performed Udell and Geld's material, covered the song. Hyland's single was a hit, reaching #3 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart. When re-released in 1975, Hyland's recording charted in the UK at # 7. Hyland also recorded a version in German.

Gary Lewis and the Playboys released a single in 1968. Their cover version was a Billboard #19 hit and placed high on the Hot 100.

A third Top 40 Hot 100 version came in 1972, when Bobby Vinton released a single, again reaching #19 in the Billboard singles charts. This version also placed high on Billboard's adult contemporary chart. Bobby Vinton's recording was used in both the trailer and end credits of the 2007 film All the Boys Love Mandy Lane...

BONUS KISS CROCHET PATTERN: - Claire Ortega's Kiss Me Bag - "Tote this little bag along on a quick errand, or a date! Using sparkly yarn makes this great for formal events, too. Small yet sturdy, it can accommodate your essentials: wallet, cell phone and keys. I named the bag “Kiss Me” because the handle looks like shapely lips, adding visual interest and lending a natural grip for your hands."

   I myself have made several of these, such as these two:

Sealed with a Kiss

Brian Hyland (b. 12 Nov 1943), 1962

Though we've got to say good-bye
For the summer
Darling, I promise you this
I'll send you all my love
Everyday in a letter
Sealed with a kiss

Yes it's gonna be cold, lonely summer
But I'll fill the emptiness
I'll send you all my dreams
Everyday in a letter
Sealed with a kiss

I'll see you in the sunlight
I'll hear your voice everywhere
I'll run to tenderly hold you
But, Darlin' you won't be there

I don't wanna say good-bye
For the summer
Knowing the love we'll miss
Let us make a pledge
To meet in September
And seal it with a kiss


Sealed with a kiss
