[REMIX] Dario G ft. Dame Shirley Bassey – We Got Music (7th Heaven Club Edit) (New Recording!!)

“7th Heaven have remixed the brilliant new single from Dario G which features none other than Dame Shirley Bassey as the featured vocalist! ‘We Got Music’ is a Latin-inspired dance track with a housey vibe and 7th Heaven have enlarged on that with their clubby yet fun dance remix.”

  1. Usually I detest most remixes of her songs, but every now and then one comes along that grabs me. If this snippet is any indication, both thumbs way up, it’s a club slammer! Even I can’t complain. Thanks for it’s airing blog and of course we’ll be on the hunt for a full version. Never heard this number by her before, I wonder if it’s really new or something that may’ve been in the vaults perhaps.

  2. What a great tune. She sounds wonderful and Dario G does a great job mixing it. Makes one wonder if she only recorded this song or maybe there is more to come.

  3. The only thing great about this song is that Shirley’s voice is still in amazing shape. Apart from this fact, it is utter rubbish. Fame is no self purpose. DSB should stick to classy songs of a certain quality (musical numbers, jazz standards or classical pop songs). Maybe she will get more attention by this record than by decent songs but commercial success really doesn’t matter in an age in which almost every commercially successful singer doesn’t even deserve to be called an artist. The Rhythm Divine, History Repeating & Get The Party Started were in a way modern but still very classy and suited to DSBs style. Judging from this snippet, this record is’nt anywhere near DSBs usual unique style. In the documentary “They Sold a Million” someone said that DSBs iconic and elevated status was a consequence of her being very picky about her work and productions. Please, DSB, keep on being picky and don’t lay your inimitable vocals on a poor tune like that.

    1. Comments like yours always center around a preconceived idea about the way DSB should sound. If I want classy songs that are suited to DSB’s style I will turn to the old records and cd’s. And sure I would like her to record a new cd with new stuff. But hey, that probably won’t happen. The Performance is a great cd but it failed to propel DSB back in the main stream of the contemporary pop industry. I hope this new song will give her a lot of airplay and perhaps this will get the industry to see what a great Icon she is and maybe that will get her in to record studio with great arrangers and musicians to record her Diamond Jubilee cd.

    2. Couldn’t agree more Rob!!! Thank you. Also imagine James if the Flip N Fill remix of Get The Party Started had been the first we ever heard, we may not have thought that such a classy version?

  4. Dear Bassey blog team,
    I understand that you are excited about this new material. And as someone who loves DSB just as much as you do i am also excited but even in my wildest dreams i cant imagine this weird tune developing into a classy and good song. The whole technologised arrangement doesn’t fit DSB. If the strings and brass section and an old-school orchestra will come in the the tune will change dramatically to the better then everything is great. But i hope you won’t tell me that you seriously believe this will happen?!

    1. The full vocal will undoubtedly be strong and lend itself to a variety of musical backings. Who knows, there are often many different mixes of a song made, depending on demand of course. For those who love more contemporary genres this is a real delight to hear Shirley Bassey’s voice sounding so fresh and new. The Dame may prefer an orchestra, as may long-time fans, but many especially younger listeners prefer the electronic ‘EDM’ sound. It is a testament to the strength and versatility of DSB’s voice that it works across a broad musical spectrum and touches so many different people’s lives in the process. We will look forward to ALL the mixes, whatever style they may be!!!!!!! 🙂

  5. I hope there will also be a version with a classic arrangement and orchestra beside all the mixes (which i highly doubt). And even if such a version will be released, it would’nt make a good song. And besides the mix i dont like i am very disappointed of these almost 2 minutes of the song. After the Sir Billi theme it looks like this was another rather poor production – i wish her every success though. I just dont get why she apparently won’t do the one right thing that would be so easy – go back to the roots and sing the many standards she hasnt recorded yet. I would prefer one single note in a DSB studio recording of Summertime to this whole 7 minutes “song”

  6. Some people are never satisfied. If she doesn’t record or release something you complain, if she does you still complain!!! Wait for the full version of the song before wading in with your premature judgements. She has nothing to prove and if she wants to record a song like this that has a potential broader appeal then good on her. Personally I am just grateful that at her age and after 60 years she is still in there having a go. The vocals on this sound as if they might have been recorded by her 30 years ago! If I was in a club and this came on you wouldn’t be able to stop me dancing. We should be hoping that this is the effect it has on others and stop wanting to stick to the past formula with grand orchestral arrangements and traditional ballads or showtunes. I know that Bassey fans love The Performance but it can hardly be considered a massive commercial success!! Enjoy it for what it is folks and chill out!

    1. The performance was neither a commercial success nor an album i particularly liked. I liked No good about Goodbye, Nice Men, I love you now and few other songs and besides Nice men the orchestrations to these songs even on the album The Performance wasn’t that great. I’ll tell you what would be a commercial success: DSB recording all the Bond themes with a proper arrangement in a high quality production. The danger, drama, sophistication and sex appeal in these songs are what DSB and her work is all about, not some mediocre summer hit.

  7. Or – ghastly thought – it’s 21st Century auto-tuned Franken-Bassey. A whole generation has forgotten what a natural, uncompressed singing voice sounds like – and this is the shocking result.

    Stop buying X Factor related releases right now and we may still be able to stop this madness!

    1. You are totally right, Mark. As adoring fan everyone should recognize that – no matter how great DSBs artistry and legacy is and will be – this kind of record is worthless. I hope she got paid well for it. It is a sin to reduce a singular talent like hers to this mainstream stuff, and as mainstream-like as it is i doubt it will even be successful.

  8. well one thing is undeniable DAME SHIRLEY BASSEY has a 60 year heritage of recording and `live `performances which are mostly superb . I do not want a JAMES BOND cd again. There has always been too much emphasis on those 3 songs amongst hundreds. I would like a rarities/unreleased cd and a brand new one of all the standards/covers Shirley has wanted to record.

  9. To the tune of one of her best earlier songs –

    No no DSB
    This release just does nothing for me
    I know you’re trying to be trendy
    But this song doesn’t send me
    I’m old fashioned don’t you see

    I hope that she has the energy to perform it at her forthcoming diamond tour.

  10. This is great, but I will reserve final judgement until I hear the original track (Without the remix)

    Having said that it is very catchy and I can’t get it out of my head at the moment!

    Perhaps there will be more which might explain why things have been so quiet recently……..

  11. Honestly you guys are unreal! SHE OWES YOU NOTHING!!!! Chill out and enjoy it. She won’t be around forever. At 77 her glory days are over. Don’t begin to lecture me about being a devout fan. I am and have been since I was 10 years old and have seen her 20+ times in the north and south pole. Put your own precious judgements to one side for a moment and enjoy the fact that after 60 years, Shirley Bassey is still recording – whether you like it or not and from some of the comments I read most of you would rather she didn’t unless it is what YOU want to hear. Sorry to break it to you but she will do what she wants and as a devout fan, it’s ok with me.

    1. At 77 i am grateful for anything she does. But i was never deluded enough to claim that a song was great just because it is sung by DSB. It is true – with her amazing talent she can turn many dull songs into great or at least considerably better ones.
      And would be very glad if i could say that her two last productions (Sir Billi and We Got Music) were – despite her unique status – also of a high musical quality – but i have ears.

    2. I completely fail to understand your posting. According to those in the, know Dario G has taken a recording of, and there is some doubt where it has come from, an old track and remixed it. She has done nothing to contribute. If you have been a fan for as long as you say you have you should be able to tell that the voice is younger.

    3. Philip, i would not be so sure that it isn’t her current voice. In these kind of mixes voices often seem to alter and someone rightly referred to the voice in the track as Franken-Bassey because it sounds just synthetic and not authentic no matter whether it is old or newly recorded. You are to premature in your assumption that it couldnt be her voice because it sounded weightier right now. I would not be surprised if the track was recorded this year in the aftermath of the Oscars.

  12. Classy standards with an orchestra are what we fans have always known her for best. But once in a while it’s good to see her step out of the standard routine. She likes to be adventurous and unusual sometimes, and it wont tarnish her astounding credibility. Just demonstrates how she is THE BEST VERSATILE FEMALE POP SINGER from the 20th century into the 21st. There will NEVER be another like her- LONG LIVE THE DAME!
