Goldfinger is the first of three James Bond films with a theme song sung byShirley Bassey. Though she only performed three out of the many Bond film theme songs, her strong, brassy style became a Bond theme trademark. "Goldfinger" was written by John Barry, Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley. The theme was originally recorded by Newley, but was rerecorded with Bassey for the film and the soundtrack. Newley's version was later released in 1992 as part of the 30th Anniversary of James Bond on film in the compilation collectors edition The Best of Bond...James Bond. Bassey's theme sold over a million copies in the United States awarding her a Gold album. In the United Kingdom the theme reached number 21 on the charts.
