Dame Shirley Bassey, she of the epic Goldfinger and Diamonds Are Forever songs from the James Bond movies, has done the unimaginable: she’s revived a dance song and made it cooler than the original! Stamping her classy high heels all over the original Get This Party Started by Pink, Dame Shirley injects sexiness and camp into this Linda Perry-written club chestnut.
Dame Shirley Bassey’s Get This Party Started single dropped July 16 in the UK, and should make its chart appearance by next week. Hope the Brits liked it – this revival of Get This Party Started deserves to go gold! Platinum! Wouldn’t it be awesome if the nine-week run of Rihanna’s Umbrella were ended by a woman twice her age?
