Did you see Shirley Bassey’s amazing reprise of Goldfinger at the Oscars? That woman’s voice is a force of nature, and Bebe Sweetbriar unleashed it at Cookie Dough’s British Invasion last January, at Edge Bar SF.
Lip syncing each word perfectly, and serving hands, eyes, and lips as believably as Shirley herself, Bebe delivered an Oscar worthy performance.
Here’s a clip of Shirley at the 2013 Oscars. At age 76, she could easily pass for 50. She belts out the classic James Bond theme song, earning a big standing ovation at the end.
Just to give a better idea of how Bebe worked the song, here’s another video of Shirley from 1974 (Bebe resembles the much younger version!):
Work those hands!
…”a spider’s touch…”
