I was in England in Nov-Dec 2005. I was on an official visit and was putting up at a official accommodation, where the host was an employee of our co.'s UK division. One day in the morning this song sung by Shirley Bassey - Diamonds are Forever of the 1971 Sean Connery starrer Bond Movie. He was not much aware about the song or the movie. However, he later went to a party the same weekend and told me that this very song was playing out during this party! I like this song a lot- good voice and a certain mystery in the way they show this song. Here follows the link:

it is a great song - Bassey also did the themes for the Bond movies Moonraker and Goldfinger
The theme tune to 007, Goldfinger, performed by Shirley Bassey. For entertainment purposes only, I do not claim ownership or rights of this production. Copyr...

@arthurchappell well I have watched Moonraker and it is a great entertaining movie. The laser fight in the end is superb!

@arthurchappell and that makes the Bond Theme music (something like "Toon Toon Toon Toon ...... ) go inside my head.

There are many good songs artists have written and recorded for the James Bond movies. That's a real good one. Bassey also did "Goldfinger" a song I really liked!

@DianneN in this movie, an imposter tries to pursue Bond's path and tells one of the female leads that he is James Bond. He had a fight with the real Bond who kills him, and the female lead says "Oh you just killed James Bond"
