Alright so I know Shirley Bassey is hardley considered cool these days, but I think she's just incredible. She's 74 and has been in the business for over 50 years. Impressive. 'This is My Life' is a song that I see as being so powerful and moving in terms of the lyrics, but Bassey's performance is something else. Bearing in mind this isn't for the theatre, she really does perform with such passion and raw emotion. We have impressive vocals and stage shows nowadays, with exciting stage presences like Lady Gaga, but nobody quite gives as much in terms of emotion as Bassey does here - unless they're on a talent competition vying for votes. But yes, quite an exciting video to find really. God I love youtube!
