Song of the Day #165
Song of the Day: Goldfinger ("Main Title"), music by John Barry, lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley, performance by Shirley Bassey, from my favorite 007 flick. The score from this 1964 James Bond film is classic Barry: jazzy, sexy, cool, hip. Listen to a Bassey audio clip here, and a recent recording of the song by Chaka Khan here. And a "shout out" to my friend Barry: Happy Birthday to a great 007 fan!
