‘Let me dance till my shoes cry’ was the line that appealed to Dame Shirley Bassey and made her decide to record the song The Living Tree. It was Never The Bride who ‘prevented’ her from retirement and all of a sudden there were two hits: Get The Party Started & The Living Tree. So 2007 became a busy year for her after all. She helicoptered into the Glastonbury Festival and won the festival crowd over with a wonderful performance of her new songs and of course her old hits. Below a radio interview by Simon May with Dame Shirley.

Hi Pieter, Many thanks for this Archive with the TWO videos , The Fabulous Photo’s of Dame Shirley with her Friend Ivana who as just sadly passed, BUT for me the RADIO INTERVIEW with Simon Mayo was so interesting ,
I could Listen to Dame Shirley TALK for Hours about her LIFE & Career the Tones even in her Speaking voice are CAPTIVATING to me & it as always been that way since as you know way back 1957/ 2022 ,
My very Best Wishes
