Try An Old Bird This Christmas
Blimey! Dame Vera Lynn (born in East Ham, 1917) is set to top the charts this holiday season, thanks in part to the forces in Afghanistan reminding everyone that she was raising morale (and money) in World War II. But Dame Shirley Bassey should also have an unexpected hit with a pretty astonishing new album written and produced by some of the best names in music. Even John Barry has penned a new song for her. She’s one of those people it feels like I’ve grown up with from babyhood who never gets any older, like Lulu and Rolf Harris. Incredibly, it’s been 12 years since she performed ‘History Repeating’ with the Propellorheads – here’s the brilliant mock-retro video.
