Format: Audio CD
What can I say about this infectious, toe-tapping, jazzy song that hasn't already been said? Innovative? Yes. Jazzy? Yes. Superb? Definitely.
The first track is the version we all know and love, used in numerous adverts, Will White and Alex Gifford display their obvious affection towards the Tigress from Tiger Bay by giving her a retro jazz/breakbeat backing to her superbly effervescent vocals.
The second track is more in the Props' mould, very fast big-beat, hip-hop. Big drums which take the focus away from Bassey's crooning for a track. Again, excellent.
I personally didn't like the last track at first, but now it's grown on me. This track is slower, lounging and very 'cool', the emphasis again on the vocals. never a dull moment on this track, and one Bassey CD you won't be embarrassed getting if straight and/or under the age of 40!

The UK’s Propellerheads take Shirley Bassey’s awesome voice and make it the centrepiece of one of the most distinctive & exciting club tracks you’ll ever hear: clever mixing and an insidious backbeat that fully exploit the power of the 60’s diva’s delivery to catapult her straight into the late 90’s. Want to dance?… then look no further!

HASH(0xa86efc78) out of 5 stars Worth repeating 15 Jun. 2000
By Melissa Pleasant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I heard this song more than a year ago in a college dance show and became obsessed with finding it. Then I learned that it was included on the 'There's Something About Mary' soundtrack but I wasn't interested in buying the entire CD for one song, so I can't tell you how excited I am to see that it's available as an import. Best enjoyed in your car at full blast, with the windows down!

HASH(0xa86efccc) out of 5 stars Dame Bassey Stays In Tune 27 Jun. 2003
By Scott F. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When Shirley Bassey, at the age of 60, was approached by the Propellerheads to do "History Repeating", she initially turned them down and suggested that they give the song to Tina Turner. However they insisted that the song was written and arranged for her, and Bassey finally agreed to record it. The results of this dancible Propellerheads/Bassey jazz hit, is a whole new legion of Gay fans and youth in general. The song became part of the soundtrack for the movie "There's Something About Mary", and was also used in a Jaguer commercial, helping to re-introduced Bassey's voice to a lot of Americans who are to young to remember "Goldfinger". "History Repeating" can also be found on Shirley Bassey's "Greatest Hits" CD. You can see the making of the music video for "History Repeating" on Shirley Bassey's concert DVD "Divas Are Forever". The music video itself is no longer available. Hopefully it will be re-released someday.

HASH(0x8f27e120) out of 5 stars A Classic 5 Sept. 2001
By Jack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Even if there is only 3 mixes on this cd single, it's simply the best SONG the Propellerheads have managed to create. Bassey, of course, sells it like her life depends on it, et voila! Instant Classic! Play it for any age group: 3 generations of my family have grooved to it.

Like at least one other reviewer, I had to find out who sang this song and I had to get a copy of it. It is riveting.

The quality of the CD was excellent..no surprises..just as I had wished! No scratches, bumps, bruises, or warps..AND there were even two more versions of the original recording on the CD! Very British I might add! Love it!
