Description

 (retro video & audio edited) HQ

"Kiss and Say Goodbye" is a song recorded by the American R&B vocal group The Manhattans. The song was written by Manhattans member Winfred "Blue" Lovett. The original demo of the song was recorded with The Manhattans backing band, "Little Harlem." After hearing a tape of the recording, producer/arranger Bobby Martin decided to re-record the song with MFSB at Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia. Released as a single, in both a version that included a mid-song rap spoken part (aimed toward the R&B market) and one that omitted it (aimed toward the pop market), over a year later, the song became a worldwide hit for the group, spending two weeks at number one on the U.S. Pop and U.S. R&B charts and reaching number four on the UK Singles Chart in the summer of 1976. In the U.S., the song was the 400th #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart. It also became just the second single to earn double-platinum certification status, after the RIAA established the designation in 1976. (Johnnie Taylor's "Disco Lady" had been the first a few months earlier.) Hong Kong Pop Diva Anita Mui's rendition of this song, "Cherish When We Meet Again", was the final song she performed before her death from Cervical Cancer in December 2003.
