Newly-reissued on vinyl right in time for 2015's Spectre!
Music composed and conducted by John Barry, lyrics by Hal David
For 50 plus years, a significant part of the excitement leading up to each new James Bond adventure in espionage has been the reveal of each film's theme song and its recording artist. Many of music's top stars have been honored to write and record new songs for 007, to see and hear their music brought to life in the films' sultry opening credits and reprised in score pieces within the film.
Many Bond themes have been major hits around the world including Dame Shirley Bassey's sensual "Goldfinger," Tom Jones' dramatic "Thunderball," Paul McCartney and Wings' soaring "Live And Let Die," Carly Simon's erotically charged "Nobody Does It Better," Sheena Easton's sultry "For Your Eyes Only," and Duran Duran's new wave belter "A View To A Kill," plus Adele's "Skyfall" becoming the first Bond theme to win at the Golden Globes, the Brit Awards and the Academy Awards, where it won the 2013 Oscar for Best Original Song.
1969's On Her Majesties Secret Service marked the fifth consecutive James Bond soundtrack from composer John Barry aka 'The Man With The Midas Touch' and arguably his finest for the franchise. Anchored by the all-time classic Bond cut "We Have All the Time in the World" sung by Louis Armstrong (his final recording session) and "Do You Know How Christmas Trees Are Grown?" sung by Nina.
