Shirley’s 007 shot

Daily Star Sunday - - NEWS - ■ EX­CLU­SIVE by JOE HIN­TON

DAME Shirley Bassey says she would love to sing an­other Bond theme.

The diva per­formed Goldfinger and Di­a­monds Are For­ever – two of the best known songs ac­com­pa­ny­ing 007 movies.

And she has not ruled out mak­ing a re­turn.

Dame Shirley, 80, said: “I have to be asked, of course, and per­haps there are other plans in place but I like the James Bond films and I’d cer­tainly be happy to do an­other one.”

The Cardiff-born star was thrilled by the suc­cess of Goldfinger, her first Bond theme in 1964.

She said: “I was de­lighted it be­came so pop­u­lar and peo­ple still want to hear it.”

But Dame Shirley, who also sang the theme for Moon­raker, thinks her ren­di­tion was not per­fect.

She said: “There were a cou­ple of notes not quite right in the record­ing.

“Ev­ery time I hear it, I no­tice it.”
