    ABOUT Shirley's 1970 LP, 'Something' & Song:
    Something is a 1970 album by Shirley Bassey. With her career having been in decline since the latter part of the mid 1960s, Something proved to be Shirley Bassey's comeback when it was released in August 1970. The title track single became her biggest UK hit for many years, reaching No.4 and spending 22 weeks on the chart.[1] This was actually the second single featured on the album, "The Sea and Sand" having already been released earlier. The album was similarly her biggest hit for many years in the album charts, reaching No.5 and spending 28 weeks in the top 50.

    ABOUT this song:
    "Something" is a song released by The Beatles in 1969. It was featured on the album Abbey Road, and was also the first song written by George Harrison to appear on the A-side of a Beatles single. It was one of the first Beatles singles to contain tracks already available on a long playing (LP) album, with both "Something" and "Come Together" having appeared on Abbey Road. "Something" was the only Harrison composition to top the American charts while he was in the Beatles.

    John Lennon and Paul McCartney—the two principal songwriting members of the band—both praised "Something" as among the best songs Harrison had written. As well as critical acclaim, the single achieved commercial success, topping the Billboard charts in the United States, and entering the top 10 in the United Kingdom. The song has been covered by over 150 artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, James Brown, Julio Iglesias, Smokey Robinson, Eric Clapton and Joe Cocker, and is the second-most covered Beatles song after "Yesterday".[

    Something in the way he moves
    Attracts me like no other lover
    Something in the way he moves me
    I don't want to leave him now
    You know I believe in how
    Somewhere in his smile he knows
    That I don't need no other lover
    Something in his style that shows me
    Don't want to leave him now
    You know I believe in how
    You're asking me will our love grow
    I don't know, I don't know
    You stick around now it may show
    I don't know, I don't know
    Something in the way he moves
    And all I have to do is think of him
    Something in the things he shows me
    I don't want to leave him now
    You know I believe in how
    You're asking me will our love grow
    I don't know, I don't know
    You stick around now it may show
    I don't know, I don't know
    Something in the way he moves
    Something in the way he knows
    Something in the way he smiles
    Something in the way he moves
    Something in the way he smiles

                From the biggest Beatles fan in the world that believes no Beatles song should ever be covered and only the originals should be heard or sung by Paul or Ringo, this version is truly magical. Well done Shirley Bassey 😘

                  Hi flyboy747: I can tell you the songwriters love it when other singers cover their songs, and they willingly give the copywrite approvals to do so because it widens the listening base. Shirley, as an example reached a different audience than the people who were/are Beatles fans. Of course, some love both, and that is great. I'm one of those fans of both! And, as a result in this case, the Beatles just laughed all the way to the bank because Bassey's cover actually sold more units than the Beatles version. Regards, Scot

                                                For me, Karen Carpenter, Barbra Streisand and Shirley Bassey are the most beautiful voices of all time.

                                                  You have great taste in singers. And, what is amazing as they each are very different on how they approach songs. Of course, it's all based on their specific vocal abilities. But, all are great singers!

Her response, what is that? Yes, the older generation artists had to rely on talent, AND grueling vocal exercises to keep her voices strong. And, you can certainly tell it when vocalists don't exercise their voices on a regular basis, AND also do not use electronics. I want name them, as I'm sure you probably know who they are. The younger generation is simply a lost cause, but I'm hoping that some will look at great performances by Shirley and others of her generation who never used electronics, and they decide to work hard to get their voices strong without the electronics. Hope, hope, hope!
