Music on Mondays (1-9-17)—Touch it, stroke it, and undress it

The Music Chronicles of Russel Ray

A birthday yesterday reminded me of one female singer whom I have always liked even though I only have three of her songs. She was born in 1937 and is the only person to have been honored by being chosen to sing the main title theme for three James Bond movies: “Goldfinger” (1964), “Diamonds Are Forever” (1971), and “Moonraker” (1979).

She sang “Goldfinger” at the 2013 Academy Awards to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond movie franchise. It was her first appearance at an Oscars ceremony as a performer. She didn’t miss a beat, and she received a well-deserved standing ovation.

I started voice lessons when I was 10 and sang in competitions, church choirs, and community choruses and ensembles from 1965 to 2003. I was always a first tenor. Maybe my high voice caused me to think women singers were competitors, so I took a subconscious disliking to them for so many years………….LOL
