15 Songs, 41 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This is the soundtrack we think of when we think of James Bond. Three films into the series, composer John Barry perfected the suave spy's distinctive sound. The explosive title track, with Shirley Bassey delivering Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse's hyperbolic lyrics with over-the-top glee, is one of the best of the series' many theme songs. The swinging '60s cool of "Into Miami" blends perfectly into the elegantly lovely "Alpine Drive," while "Bond Back in Action" brings back James' iconic twang-guitar theme.
