1974 (Shirley Bassey TV Special)

Shirley recorded and released this song on her 1975 LP titled 'Shirley Bassey - Good, Bad, But Beautiful'

ABOUT this song:
"Sing" is a popular song created for Sesame Street that gained popularity when performed by The Carpenters. It has become one of the most performed songs on Sesame Street, sung in English, Spanish, and sign language.

"Sing" was written by Joe Raposo, the staff songwriter for the popular children's tv show Sesame Street. In its initial appearance, the song was sung by adult human cast members of the show (the most frequent lead singer was Bob McGrath[citation needed]), and Muppets, including Big Bird. "The Kids" sang "Sing" for The Sesame Street Book & Record, a recording re-released on the 2003 Songs from the Street CD set.

The Carpenters loved the song and said in retrospect that they knew it would "be a hit". Their associates thought they were "nuts". The song acted as their debut single from the LP album Now & Then, released in 1973. "Sing" reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number-one on the easy listening chart, and it became the group's seventh gold single.

In 1975, Shirley Bassey recorded the song on her album Good, Bad but Beautiful, and also performed it in concert several times in the 1970s, including in this 1974 TV Special.

LYRICS:
Sing, sing a song
Sing out loud
Sing out strong
Sing of good things not bad
Sing of happy not sad.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not
Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.

Sing, sing a song
Let the world sing along
Sing of love there could be
Sing for you and for me.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not

Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.
