Bassey, Shirley - Something Lyrics

Ooooohhhhhh, uhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhh

Something in the way he moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way he woos me

I don't want to leave him now
You know I believe him how

Somewhere in his smile, he knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in his style that shows me

I don't want to leave him now
You know I believe him how

You're asking me will my 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 knows
And all I have to do is think of him
Something in the things he shows me

Don't want to leave him now
You know I believe him how

You're asking me will my 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

  6. Allan Osborne

    there is nobody like our shirl

  7. lior paz


  8. Lucia Sellek

    No Body like Shirley...

  9. Debra Mermouti

    Stunning ❤️

  10. Ian Kenrick

    think this is one the examples where the cover version is better than the original prefer this jazzed up version too the original beatles version

  11. saintstephensoundwel

    Only Shirley could even have attempted to cover George's true masterpiece of a song - that and The Carpenters versions of a few of the Beatles songs and 'Cocker' of course whose outrageous version of 'the bathtoom window' was mesmerising!

  12. Debbie Williamson

    Was dads fave song, didnt use to like it. I do now love the lyrics and SB amazing voice

  13. Mookie Spindlehurst

    Frank Sinatra said that this gem penned by George Harrison was the greatest love song ever written, and often featured it in his live act.
    It is the second most recorded Beatles song, after "Yesterday." Others recorded "Something"; Dame Shirley Bassey NAILED IT!
    Milton Moore

    Raymond Kitchen

    Sinatra said his favorite Lennon/McCartney song was 'Something'. lmao

  14. MrSleepyoc

    Powerful rendition by a powerful singer....Shirley Bassey is a great of the 20th Century.

  15. William Ruy

    The Queen

  16. comicmania2008

    Nobody can sing this as good as Shirley did! Fantastic song and orchestral arrangement!

  17. Ian Kenrick

    think this is a better cover version than compared too the beatles original

  18. mick dempsey

    Yes, SB is phenomenal - but what about the musical arrangement. Absolutely transcendent.


    Couldn't agree more.


    It's unbelievable.

  19. willdakabanana

    Eu amo esta mulher e suas canções.

  20. willdakabanana

    Sou apaixonado, me remete a uma nostalgia inigualável. Linda linda linda...

  21. Be Free

    Fredrik Jelkefors

    Indeeed.. She is my favorite

  26. John Stevens

    I remember listening to this great cover of the Beatles song on KOY AM 55 a legendary MOR station many, many years ago. Thanks for posting it.

  27. samir samir

  28. samir samir

  29. jchopra

    You have to search hard through the pages of music to find anyone who sing like her.

    ***** GOD is *SOMETHING*  ,,, Oh Heavens upon Earth,  YES indeed >  GOD is *SOMETHING*  ...  So what actually "is"  *SOMETHING* ? ? ? .... Well , with Pure Child-like innocence I can Surely say that  *SOMETHING*  used to be just (a thing )  , a tiny, tiny , tiny ,  teeny , teeny , teeny , weeny , weeny , weeny wee ( thing ) *  ... Then it started FEELING and THINKING ,,,  and when that tiny , teeny , weeny wee (thing )*  started FEELING and THINKING ,  it then started growing and evolving,  and GROWING AND EVOLVING ,  and as it did,  it thought to itself ( I *LOVE* EVOLVING MYSELF )   ... So then it found *LOVE*  of CREATION in itself ... So then *LOVE*  was born and realised in itself ,,, so the GROWING , EVOLVING , CREATIVE LOVE ( thing ) kept expanding and expanding and expanding itself ,  Until the Moment it became ( *SOMETHING*  )  , and not just ( a thing ) anymore  ....  Because Most People can Pin ( a thing ) down ,  or Neutrilize it , or throw it away  ... But you CANT EVER do that with ( *SOMETHING* )  ....  For instance ,  MANY will say that "THE SKY is SOMETHING ",  or "THE SUN is SOMETHING" ,  or "THE OCEAN is SOMETHING" ,  or "THE UNIVERSE is SOMETHING",,, or more Accurately "GOD is SOMETHING"  ,,, oh Heavens upon Earth YES indeed ,,, GOD is ( *SOMETHING* )  , and so it can Only be TRUE that  >  ( *SOMETHING* )  is the GREATEST CREATION that ( a thing ) can Ever Become ,,,,  being so through its FEELING and KNOWING of its *LOVE* of self Growth towards utter *PERFECTION*   :-) G777 :-)  *****

    que lástima que pasan los años y no tiene hoy nada de aquella mujer que ví y conocí en el Opera


    +Martin juan jose Amadeo y Videla Sigue siendo la misma, cojones.

  44. tony tanner

    Amazing how Shirely Bassey was able to take one of the most iconic Beatles songs and make it her own.  Her emotional delivery and tasteful phrasing is sheer perfection.

    Rich in 212

    May I also add that Frank Sinatra recorded this wonderful song not just once, but twice. Seek out his second recording of it, with the lush Quincy Jones arrangement. It's one of Sinatra's most beautiful, emotional recordings. In other words, great songs will sound great by ANYONE!


    you know I will be very sad when SB dies one day....bur her amazing songs will continue to live on...

    Maldwyn Lindley

    George harrison wrote this one,still a great song after all these years

    Jairinho Mattos

    tony tanner I agree

    Michael Myhill

    Tony Bennett ???

  45. Bumblebert

    HQ recording but taken off a crackling vinyl record

    davyboy smith

    still far superior to cd

    Ashley O'Neill

    How it should be.

    Hywel James

    quality is much of a muchness when listening from Youtube, then via bluetooth or some dodgey docking station

  46. Richard Sharpe

    A family favorite my Grandad always called her Birley Shassey

    Benoit Vanhees

    @Richard Sharpe So you were Sichard Rharpe then ?

    Richard Sharpe

    Nope Benoit always been Richard Sharpe or Dick which I perfer

  47. HackneyShark

    Zapple Yesitsme

    you may be ABSOLUTELY RIGHT with that comment.... i've never seen anyone say that before about THIS song.. and i,m a HUGE BEATLES FAN !!

  57. Ana Silva

    A melhor interpretação de Dame de músicas dos Beattles.
    Incrivel esta versão.

  58. Tarec Palad

    very nice!!!i love shirley bassey!!

  59. Jules Love

    Quite possibly the best version ever recorded. No one beats Bassey when it comes to singing. No one.

    Shaun Bailey

    Jules Love agreed

  60. Dee Sales

    Something in the waay she sings this song, makes me think about my love-er_ _ _

  61. Merv Clarsberg

    Normally I hate beatle covers by other people but this is nice.
    Thumbs up if you agree

  62. MsSarjen

    @Biggl1 This is one of the few songs where I love both versions equally. George always was my favorite song writer of the Beatles, and this is the best imo. So I got to love the way he sings it, but this version is perfect.

  63. jose manuel puga

    solo escuchen , sin comentarios

  64. Derpy Fletch

    YES. A Beatles song covered properly. I love it. <3

  65. shmuli9

    In this pic, Shirley looks rather like Edyie Gorme...

  66. Yrrats

    One example that a cover definitely can add something to an original (which is beautiful too, in a totally different way).

  67. superdavico

    fantastic voice, great song, thank for your upload

  68. CharGuitarGirl

    I love The Beatles & Shirley Bassey's version definitely does it justice, she has a phenomenal voice <3

  69. AL W

    Thx A. I despise judgemental ppl.

    @Frank - PLUS recorded @ Abbey Road. They didn't pick her to record the "007" opening credits for nothing! Totally agree with you.

  70. AL W

    Thx A. I despise judgemental ppl.

    @TheImpressionable -
    1. My dad played this on his turn table since before I was a teen!
    2. I'm a GIRL!!!
    3. The word is "f.a.g.g.o.t", you non- spelling, illiterate, bigoted, ignorant SOB!

  79. frank d

  80. frank bonini

    is it just me...or does she look a bit like gladys knight in that photo?

  81. Sophia Burrell

    I love shirley bassey songs always

  82. AL W

    I've loved this song by Bassey since I was too little to reach the record player in the 70s. I had to beg family members to play it for me & what do you know; they love it too!!!

  83. Michelle Noil

    I love this song. Especially live.
