Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings - "Goldfinger"

If you skipped out on your family last night to go see the new Scorsese joint The Wolf Of Wall Street, you may already know this. But the movie’s soundtrack features retro-soul institution Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings covering Shirley Bassey’s classic Bond theme “Goldfinger.” It’s arguably the best theme in the entire Bond-movie history, and Jones does it some kind of justice, which can’t be an easy accomplishment. Listen below.

The new Dap-Kings album Give The People What They Want is out 1/14 on Daptone, and the “Goldfinger” cover is out now at iTunes.

  1. Eh.

    If she were performing karaoke, this would be great. But it doesn’t stand up to the original.

  2. Two words:

    Thunder.
    Ball.

  3. I’ll always have a soft spot for Live and Let Die.

    This is a fantastic cover though.
