COUNT ON ME as recorded by Shirley Bassey & The Rita Williams Singers with Geoff Love & his Orchestra on September 2nd 1959.

To be yours and to give my love,
That’s what I was born to do!
Count on me to love you true,
I belong to only you!
By your side I’ll always be,
You can count on me!
Count on me to lead the way,
Guide you through each stormy day,
Care for you so faithfully,
You can count on me!
In my heart there is so much love,
And it’s only for you!
To be yours and to give my love,
That’s what I was born to do!
count on me to share my all,
I’ll be at your beck and call!
Now and through eternity,
You can count on me! You can count on me!

  1. Still traveling through this summer, but got time to hear this song for the first time. So profoundly sweet and nostalgic.

  2. Terrific orchestration by Geoff Love that really sets up DSB’ s voice on
    this early recording…such power in the vocals…another wonderful tribute. Thank you, Pieter.
