Yes, I am indeed featuring Shirley Bassey on the blog. I know some people think of her as more of a cabaret star (which she kinda was) but she also had some great moments throughout her long and distinguished career and today’s selection is probably her finest in my humble opinion.
Those of you who have a fondness for hip-hop will probably recognize this as it provided the musical backdrop to Public Enemy’s 2007 single “Harder Than You Think” which marked something of a return to form for the legendary rap group. Anyone reading this from the UK may also be familiar with the aforementioned Public Enemy tune as it featured heavily during Channel 4’s coverage of the 2012 Paralympics.
So, not much more needs to be said other than to press that little play button and crank up the speakers. Enjoy!
