The Bond Songs you Didn’t hear

James-Bond

This is some great stuff! I found an awesome article about the James Bond/007 movies and their theme music selection. After reading, I found out that some big name celebrities have recorded theme music for several movies in the Bond series over the past 40 years, and that many of those themes went unheard.

The best part about the information is that you can actually listen to the music! (With the exception of two missing tracks.) There really were some great variations here that surprisingly didn’t make the cut.

Here’s a condensed list:

  • Goldfinger (1964); Originally recorded by Anthony Newley.

  • Thunderball (1965); Originally recorded by Johnny Cash(!)

  • You Only Live Twice (1967); Originally recorded by Lorraine Chandler.
