"The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)" is a song written by Rudy Clark.
Cher's remake was cut for the soundtrack of her 1990 film Mermaids in which it played under the closing credits, and the single's U.S. release coincided with the November release of the film. It peaked at number thirty three on the Billboard Hot 100, and number one in the United Kingdom, where it remained for five weeks, selling a total of 520,000 copies, making it one of the biggest-selling singles by a female artist in Britain in the 1990s. The song was Cher's first solo number one single, her previous number one in the United Kingdom had been in 1965 with her then husband Sonny Bono and their first hit: "I Got You Babe".
Cher's "The Shoop Shoop Song" also topped the charts in Austria, Republic of Ireland, New Zealand, Norway and Spain; the single achieved a number two peak in Australia and top ten status in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland.
