Live and Let Die named best Bond theme

Postby tristanjblythe » Mon Sep 17, 2012 3:29 am

In the year that celebrates 50 years since the first Bond movie and Beatles album here some nice news. I think the top two are right - they are the ones that stand up as songs in their own right.

couldn't agree more...

i remember very clearly L&LD in the theaters...it was my first in-the-theater Bond...

the opening scenes of death and mayhem, for a little, impressionable kid, was pretty thrilling

i knew there was a new guy playing Bond..but, going in...it was OK: he once was The Saint, right ?

and then paul began singing...yup...that set sail the boat that has floated all this time...
everybody bogey...dig that bogey beat...man, that bogey rhythm...smells so clean 'n sweet
everybody bogey...bogey onto the streets...without bogey music...life is incomplete

Live and let die is one of Pauls finest musical moments. I bought the single - I think even before the movie-still has it somewhere. It s a piece that one musician friend of mine once said is "filled with musical intelligence". The movie is entertaining to even though I personally prefer Sean Connery as James Bond

It certainly runs rings around the License To Kill theme song. :-)
