Dame Shirley Bassey: Feel Like Makin' Love [1975]

written by Gene McDaniels

from the album Good, Bad But Beautiful

I actually did not know this song until I heard Shirley's version. After momentary disappointment that this was not Shirley doing a Bad Company cover, I quickly became enthralled by the song, by Shirley's vocal, and by the delightful funky-muzak arrangement (check the bass on this). Shirley's vocal may conservatively be scored an 11 out of 10, with special notice given to her delivery of the line "seeing lovers do their thing."

available on CD through BGO records.
