Everything Shirley Bassey sings sounds like something off a film soundtrack -- even the songs that aren't actually on a film soundtrack. Whether she's belting out a show tune or dipping into a guttural growl for one of her Propellerheads collaborations, Bassey's voice is grandiose, dramatic, commanding. You say some fellows called the Doors originally wrote "Light My Fire" and it wasn't a lounge song besotted with sweeping strings and Bacharachian brass? We'll never believe it. Because Shirley Bassey is just that much diva. And, darlings, she most definitely does have the range.
