Legendary Welsh singer Shirley Bassey’s ‘Don’t Take the Lovers from the World‘ was played on last night’s episode of the spy drama Killing Eve  — Killing Eve, Season 4, Episode 7, “Making Dead Things Look Nice“.

The Motown-style track was written by George David Weiss and songwriting duo Hugo & Luigi, and released by Bassey as a single in June, 1966 via the United Artists record label.

It was her first release for that label, and is a song about love being the only thing that can save the world.

Weirdly, the track is also one of Shirley Bassey‘s least known or least played songs, which, considering it is an absolute banger and has just the same emotional impact now as it did when it was released over 50 years ago — what the hell, folks?

And, of course, Bassey’s ‘Don’t Take the Lovers from the World‘ was the perfect song to be played over last night’s scene, eh?
