"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!"

"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."

"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."
