Duets # 38

Today the duet Shirley Bassey did with Chris Rea for his film from 1996 ‘La Passione’. The film was a flop unfortunately but had a great soundtrack that was released on CD and reached # 43 on the charts. I tried to watch it three times but never made it till the end.  Shirley sang two songs for the film La Passione and Shirley Do You Own A Ferrari and she sounded and looked fabulous. Apparently a lot of footage of Shirley for the film was edited out, unfortunately. Chris Rea describes his film as “various fantasies of Italy and Ferrari’s, set to music”, so it’s a mix of his own real passions: music, cars and Italy.  

Dame Shirley Bassey attended the premiere of the movie with three of her grand sons.
