Bassey videoBaby boomers know Shirley Bassey, and this morning — so does everyone else. She’s the 76-year-old chanteuse who belted out the James Bond hit “Goldfinger” to a standing ovation at the Oscars. Watch her sing at the 3 minute mark in the video tribute to Bond.

But she’s more than that — she sang the title songs to Goldfinger  in 1964, Diamonds Are Forever in 1971, and Moonraker in 1979, according to Wikipedia. Read more about what she’s been doing here

Bond won more accolades with Adele’s Oscar for best song for “Skyfall.”

More highlights:

The host seemed to do well. Seth McFarlane was ahead on the Zapitpoll early this morning as best host in five years. 

  • “Argo” won for best movie with Ben Affleck, George Clooney and Grant Heslov as producers.
  • Daniel Day-Lewis won his third Oscar for his portrayal of Abraham  Lincoln in “Lincoln.” 
  • Jennifer Lawrence, 22, won best-actress in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Her dress tripped up on her way up the stairs. 
  • Ang Lee hit it big as best director for “Life of Pi.” The movie won a lot of awards.
  • Anne Hathaway won supporting-actress Oscar in the musical “Les Miserables.” And the entire cast sang during the Oscars — another huge highlight. 
  • Christoph Waltz won supporting-actor in “Django Unchained,” and Quentin Tarantino won for original screenplay for “Django.”

The spy we love gets his own global celebration this Friday. Read about it here. The date commemorates the 50th birthday of “Dr. No” released on Oct. 5, 1962. According to Huffington Post, Christie’s Auction house has a series of items that will hit the auction block Friday — a Bond bathing suit, movie posters and the Aston Martin from “Quantum of Solace.” The proceeds will be donated to charities including UNICEF.

Here’s the trailer for the new upcoming Bond movie “Skyfall” starring Daniel Craig. It hits theaters in the U.S. Nov. 9. Think you know James Bond? Take the ultimate quiz here. View the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/JamesBond007.

Sean Connery was always my fave Bond, but Daniel Craig is quickly gaining ground. Above all, have a martini  – shaken, not stirred, on Friday in honor of Bond. I will.
