Yes, THAT Shirley Bassey! The Welsh born singer mostly known for her James Bond theme songs "Goldfinger" 1964 and "Diamonds Are Forever" 1971. And yes, THAT "Get This Party Started", the 2002 song by Pink. Strangely the two go very very well together. At 70, Shirley's voice is as powerful as ever and brings a whole new dimension to the song. The arrangement is spectacular, filled with horns reminiscent of the old Bond films but not dated. This cover should bring many new fans, count me in, to Dame Shirley Bassey.Green denotes new top 10 entry.
It debuts this week at #4, which is something, because my full list is a top 30. I only post the top 10 songs here each week. Those that I list as a 'debut' have typically moved up from between #11-#30.
