For Sunday: Shirley Bassey sings “St. Louis Blues”

shirley bassey


I first heard this classic song in high school. I used to listen to the soloist rehearsing it – she sang it with just piano accompaniment – and I was more and more amazed at how good it was.

 

 

This performance from the 1950s, when Shirley Bassey was in her teens, is very good.

 

 

I love that man like a schoolboy loves his pie,

Like a Kentucky colonel loves his mint and rye.

I’ll love that man ‘til the day I die.
