Happy Birthday Shirl

No not me Lord Sedgwick. It is Dame Shirl's seventy third birthday. Happy birthday Shirl.

Not to many 71 year olds could get a young crowd going such as she did a couple of years ago at Glastonbury Music Festival with her cover of Pink's Get the Party Started. I just love it. Thanks for the alert Stephen.

  1. Sensational, my dad loved Shirley Bassey. My favourite of hers though is another modern one, written especially for her by The Propellerheads. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTUIHK7gHRE

  5. I bet she was good Victor, although I like her better as she has aged.

    Jayne, she may have had a teeny bit of work here and there though. 73 year old arms usually wobble about a lot more than hers do.

Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
