Dame Shirley Bassey Gets The Party Started

Busy day here, but I had to quickly share my new favorite thing.

This is the ever-fabulous Shirley Bassey...

...correction, Dame Shirley Bassey...

...the legendary voice behind "This Is My Life," "Never, Never, Never," "(Where Do I Begin?) Love Story," "History Repeating" and the trio of James Bond theme songs, "Goldfinger," "Moonraker" and "Diamonds Are Forever"...

...singing Pink's "Get The Party Started."

This is joy. Absolute, pure joy!

I too love Dame Shirleys' cover of this but it's really the first time I could understand the lyrics. They're truly, truly lame. I mean, even for a silly pop song.

A queen performed to this song at a drag show last weekend-I was LOVING it! Thanks for posting the vid.

WOW, even after 164 years that bitch can still SAAAANG!

I love that she giggles when she says ass, as if it is the first time she has ever said it!

Donnie - You're welcome. Damn, I miss great drag shows!

Lance - I know. And you know that Shirley has a GREAT ass!! Even at 112!

Whim - Wicked, wicked cool!

Rick - What is not to LOVE about Shirley Bassey?!?! Not a damn thing!!!
