Bedtime Music: Shirley Bassey - Diamonds are Forever

Tonight's Bond theme song is the title track from the movie Diamonds are Forever. Like Goldfinger and the later Bond movie Moonraker (which we won't use this week), Shirley Bassey is the singer. Ironically, the song almost wasn't used in the film because co-producer Harry Saltzman hated the sexual innuendo in the lyrics. (Imagine that! /snark ) The song, however, was used at the insistence of the other co-producer, Albert "Cubby" Broccoli.
