Song Lyric Sunday

This week our host Jim Adams for Song Lyric Sunday has given us the prompt to write about  Odor/Scent/Smell/Taste.

Here are the “rules”:
• Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it contains the prompt words or not.  If it does not meet the criteria, then please explain why you chose this song.
• Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due.  Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be.
• Make sure you also credit the singer/band and if you desire you can provide a link to where you found the lyrics.
• Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
• Ping back to this post or place your link in the comments section below.
• Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
• Feel free to suggest future prompts.
• Have fun and enjoy the music.

I am actually selecting an instrumental song that was released in 1965 that has the title A Taste of Honey” by Herb Albert & His Tijuana Brass. Herb Albert was actually one of the co-founders of A&M Records along with Jerry Moss.

Here was the main line-up for the group.

A Taste of Honey was included on an iconic album named “Whipped Cream & Other Delights”. The album cover was considered salacious in the 1960’s. The model for that cover was Delores Erickson. She was paid $1,500 for that photo shoot and was 3 months pregnant at the time.

A Taste of Honey” was written by Bobby Scott and Ric Marlow. It was originally an instrumental track (or recurring theme) written for the 1960 Broadway version of the 1958 British play A Taste of Honey (which was also made into the film of the same name in 1961). The play is about a young white woman who gets pregnant after a one night stand with a black sailor. Her best friend, who is a gay man, agrees to help raise the child.

A vocal version of the song—first recorded by Billy Dee Williams (and released in 1961 on the Prestige label), and then recorded very successfully by Lenny Welch in the summer of 1962—was also recorded by the Beatles for their first album Please, Please Me in 1963.

Here are the Lyrics

Cold winds may blow for the icy sea
But I’ll take with me the warmth of thee
A taste of honey, a taste much sweeter than wine

[Bridge]
I will return, I will return
I’ll come back for the honey and you

[Verse 2]
I’ll leave behind my heart too well
And may it e’er remind you of
A taste of honey, a taste much sweeter than wine

[Bridge]
I will return, I will return
I’ll come back for the honey and you

Here is a black and white video

Hope the song can be a small delight for someone this Sunday.
