Get the Party Started - Shirley Bassey

Legbamel Not-Pop

While Pink can give you a bit of fun, sometimes you really need more meat to your music. What better way to combine the two than by enjoying Shirley Bassey belting out Pink’s Get the Party Started, complete with wacky video? I’ve posted before about my love for spy music and Shirley Bassey’s voice (specifically her performance with Propellerheads). With the new, world-weary and worn Bond, I can’t imagine them finding a use for something as fun as Get the Party Started, but I’d love to hear it in a 007 movie. Actually, I’d love to hear just about anything from Dame Shirley in a movie.

By the by, check out Version Galore and their enormous pile of James Bond-related cover songs, in honor of the relase of "Quantum of Solace" today.

    OMG! I was just thinking about Dame Bassey and the fabulous "Goldfinger" when I heard a radio discussion on Bond music on the radio duqring my Friday drive time. I was annoyed that the ranker put "Goldfinger" at number 2 instead of Number 1 on his list of Bond Theme songs.

    I was totally flabergasted to come across this great "Bond" related post of yours with Dame Shirley covering Pink! Who woulda' thunk it(LOL).

    Great post. Great cover. I gotta buy that song asap! It is awesome.
    Way to stay relevant Miss Bassey!

    I absolutely love her. In fact, after this post I decided to do a video showcase for her (linked above). She does a million cover songs, and her voice is so fantastic. Thanks for your comments!
