Song Of The Day: Propellerheads feat. Shirley Bassey – “History Repeating” (1997)

Happy Birthday to the Welsh Grande Dame Shirley Bassey. who turns 81 today. Her big, big voice first came to the world’s attention in 1965 with her recording of the James Bond theme “Goldfinger”, which reached as high as #8 on Billboard. Although she never charted as high again, Bassey has maintained an impressive career throughout the 50 years since, seemingly enjoying more comebacks than James Brown. But her greatest revival from a Rock perspective was without a doubt her 1997 collaboration with the British electronica outfit The Propellerheads, which yielded this fabulous track. Hers has got to be one of the most amazing voices ever to grace a popular recording.
