* RichardCheese did a [[InTheStyleOf lounge cover]] of "[[Music/TheClash Rock the Casbah]]". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8UaFWCJcAI Changing the pitch of it]] turns the cover into a dead-on Bassey pastiche.

->''Goldfinger,\\
He's the man, the man with the Midas touch,\\
A spider's touch.\\
Such a cold finger,\\
Beckons you to enter his web of sin,\\
But don't go in.''

Shirley Bassey is a [[UsefulNotes/{{Wales}} Welsh]] singer born in 1937, affectionately and [[{{Spoonerism}} spooneristically]] referred to as "Burly Chassis". Her career spans more than sixty years, and she has a powerful and very distinctive voice that is instantly recognisable - nobody sounds exactly like her, but you can immediately tell when they're trying to.
