Dame Shirley Bassey [May. 27th, 2013|08:27 am]
I've sorta known about Shirley Bassey for a long time since she's shown up as guest vocalist on some favorite tracks of mine. Took the time to look her up and she has had an amazing and lengthy career. (With that wonderful voice, I'm not surprised!)

But I also found this cover she did a few years ago that I didn't know about:

Excellent rendition of, of all things, an original P!nk song. :) I'm rather fond of P!nk as well though I think this is a better one of her songs.

More Dame Shirley Bassey? How about the "Rhythm Divine" by Yello?

Interesting. I agree, it's one of Pink's better songs, and this version is quite catchy. It wouldn't be out of place as the main theme song of a spy movie, either. :)

You can't go wrong with Yello. :) I didn't know it was her singing on that one.

James Bond

Would be proud to have his party started with such a catchy tune :)

Ah, yes. It's a great cover. I like Shirley's Bond songs the best, and this so sounds like it could be one.

Totally agree. Though I have to admit, the recent Skyfall theme song was surprisingly good. Still... Bassey's tops!
