A TASTE OF HONEY
"A Taste of Honey" is a pop standard 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). Both the original and a cover by Herb Alpert in 1965 earned the song four Grammy Awards. A vocal version of the song, first recorded by Lenny Welch, became popular when it was recorded by the Beatles in 1963. Bobby Scott himself arranged and produced for Esther Ofarim a Vinyl LP titled "Is it really me!" containing the song.
