From Denmark this programme.

Duets # 21

Today a duet many of you will not know or heard of: Tony Monopoly and Dame Shirley Bassey singing ‘You don’t bring me flowers’.

It seems to be recorded for one of Shirley’s 1979 BBC-shows where Tony was a guest performer on. Unfortunately the duet didn’t make it to the screen.

Tony Monopoly was a huge  Shirley Bassey fan and I once saw him at a concert in the Royal Albert Hall at the beginning of the eighties. After the concert I met Tony by coincidence in a pub.

Shirley also did this duet with Robert Goulet on her Special ‘A special lady‘ in 1980.


In 2015 Dame Shirley Bassey recorded the Christmas song with Blake, she performed on Strictly Come Dancing, Graham Norton, The One Show with Blake and she performed at the New York Amfar Gala and she was at The Pride of Britain Awards. Below some newspaper articles from 2015. One is from a Dutch magazine but translated from an English article previously posted.
