Shirley Bassey: Goldfinger (Live at Royal Albert Hall)

May 3, 2007

I’ve had this tune in my head for months and it won’t go away, so I’m giving in to my inner nudging and posting one of the many performances on YouTube. There is one recorded in 2005 in a concert for Queen Elizabeth where Shirley’s voice in past its prime but she has golden go-go boys around her in spare thongs. This is for the queen?? It didn’t give me the option to embed that video, but if you’d like to see it, it’s here. Otherwise, here is a mid-career performance of GOLDFINGER by Dame Shirley Bassey. She still sizzles. And I LOVE that nasty trumpet growl.
