Shirley Bassey Makes Everything Better!

Snagged from blacktigr. I absolutely loathe this song ... except ... somehow ... Shirley Bassey still manages to make it awesome.

I know! James Bond goes goth, anyone? ;)

It would make a spectacular start to a James Bond movie. I wonder the setting the scene would cut to, though....perhaps a goth club with darkwave in London?

I like Pink's version, but this was just pure awesome as you said. That's one woman with a lot of class. I like how she was finding the lyrics amusing. :) -Frisk

... that's two of us who absolutely loathe this song.

And yet, as you said, Shirley just rocks it from one side to the other.
There's a good reason for it, though: She's got class, which is such a rare thing in today's music scene. In this video she seems to be giving the young Liza Minelli a run for her money.

Considering Shirley's had a career spanning 50 years, that's quite a feat! ;)

By that, I meant outclassing her ;)

Why do I feel like I was watching an opening sequence for a James Bond movie? XD

Strange song for her to cover, though I like the way she sounds embarrassed to sing "You'll be kissing my ass". Amazing she still has that powerful voice after 50 years. A UK national treasure.

What an absolutely amazing voice. I need to look up more of her work.

Shirley Bassey turns an annoying squeaky song into elegant awesomeness.

You made me go find one of my other favourite Shirley singing modern songs.

I think it deserves a meme.
