Tom Jones, What’s New, Pussycat? [from What’s New Pussycat?, 1966]

The Seekers, Georgy Girl [from Georgy Girl, 1966]
[I love how happy the Seekers’ singer is in this clip]:

Dionne Warwick, Theme From Valley of the Dolls [from Valley of the Dolls, 1967]
[Written by Andre and Dory Previn. Which I mention because I love Dory Previn.]

Shirley Bassey, Diamonds Are Forever [from Diamonds Are Forever, 1971]
