Most of you will have heard of Scot through the videos he has posted of Shirley on You Tube. He contacted the blog regarding a site called ‘the top-ten-lists’. Below is an extract from his message explaing about it:
I have been working the 11 Top Ten Lists where Shirley is located for several months now and a lot of progress has been made to move her into the Top 10 in several of these categories. It really would be wonderful if Shirley Bassey fans helped in this indever so that Shirley is moved up to the Top 10 in all the categories where she is listed. As of today, this is where we stand:
1.) Best Female Singer of the 21st Century – 3
2.) Best Female Singer of All Time – 17
3.) Greatest Songs of the 60’s – Goldfinger – 1
4.) Top Ten Best Love Songs – As I Love You – 2
5.) All Time Greatest Cover Songs – Something – 3
6.) Most Unique Singing Voice – 9
7.) Greatest Singer Of All Time (Male/Female) – 25
8.) Top Ten Saddest Songs – I Who Have Nothing – 4
9.) All Time Greatest Songs – Goldfinger – 46
10.) Best Female Singer In Concert – 8
11.) Best Singer of The 60’s – 2
What is most disturbing is the two ‘Best Singer’ categories where Shirley is ranked #17 and #25, and of course should be MUCH HIGHER on the list. If several hundred of her fans voted once per day for each of these categories she would start to move up to where she belongs…In the Top 10.
I believe this is just one more Marketing Tool to get the word out about this exceptional vocalist, Dame Shirley Bassey, and with everyone’s help with can do it. To vote for the 11 Categories once per day it takes 3-4 minutes max.
Once in the site (SAVE to your Favorites), just type ‘Bassey’ in the Search Box (Upper Right portion of Screen) and all the above lists will come up. There are a few other line-items that will come up, but you will only vote in the above categories. As noted above I have listed where Shirley is ranked in each of the above categories to make it easy to find her name, but once you are in each of the categories you can do a ‘Control Find’ (Control F) and type in ‘Bassey’ and it will take you to where she is located.
Then VOTE! Then hit the back button to take you out in order to click on the next list. It’s that SIMPLE!
Let’s all complete this mission and move Shirley up to where she belongs! As you will see when viewing the various lists that Sarah Brightman’s fans have done a great job for her. Some of the others who are ranked higher than Shirley will make you chuckle, but we can change this.
If you’d like to see Shirley higher in these charts then vote. I’ve already done it. Let’s put up there where she belongs at NUMBER ONE!!
Thank you Scott.
