Shirley Bassey – This is a wonderful Country Song recorded and released on Shirley Bassey 1997 LP titled, ‘You Take My Heart Away’. Shirley has recorded only a few country songs in her very long 62+ year career, but when she does, they are very, very good. Bassey is capable of recording and performing songs across the musical spectrum.

About The LP, You Take My Heart Away:
You Take My Heart Away is the twenty-second studio album from Shirley Bassey, released in 1977 on the United Artists Records label. The album peaked at #34 in the UK album chart. The tracks recorded for this album are contemporary pop, soft rock songs, and country, dating mainly from the early to mid-1970s. The title track “You Take My Heart Away”, originally performed by Bill Conti, was featured in the 1976 film Rocky. Other covers versions included are: “This One’s for You” from Barry Manilow, “Silly Love Songs” from Wings, which had been a #1 hit single on the Billboard Hot 100, “Stargazer” from Neil Diamond. Only one track dates from a previous era: “Can’t Help Falling in Love” was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1962. Two singles were issued from the album “I Let You Let Me Down Again” which featured “Razzle Dazzle”, a non-album track, on the B-side. The second single, issued in the wake of the success of the Rocky movie, was “You Take my Heart Away” with “I Let You Let Me Down Again” issued as the B-side. You Take My Heart Away was issued originally on 33.3rpm vinyl and audio cassette with a sleeve cover photography by Ray Massey. The album was re-issued on a double CD set in 2006, by BGO Records, together with the 1978 album Yesterdays.

LYRICS:
Not the first time nor the last
Love’s a memory fading fast
I was doing fine but then
I let you let me down again

Didn’t want to be your clown
Build me up then let me down
I wanted love, you gave me pain
I let you let me down again
In the time it takes to say
All the things I had to say
You changed your mind and went away
Oh why couldn’t you stay.

You didn’t even say goodbye
You didn’t even cry
You left me standing in the rain
And I let you let me down again

In the time it takes to say
All the things I had to say
You changed your mind and went away
Oh why couldn’t you stay.

Not the first time nor the last
Love’s a story from the past
And it always ends the same
I let you let me down again
Oh, oh, I let you let me down again
