The beautiful and talented Dame Shirley Bassey sings two great songs by some of the greatest songwriters ever. First she sings "Let Me Sing and I'm Happy", written by the brilliant Irving Berlin, and then she follows it up with "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend", with music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Leo Robin. The songs were recorded as part of her variety program, The Shirley Bassey Show. The first episodes appeared on the BBC in 1976, including the episode which featured the performances below.

Have a great Saturday!
