Yes, I know this is the third John Barry/James Bond tune in a row I’ve picked for the Watercooler Musical Interlude, but I’m still in a James Bond 50th Anniversary state of mind and I’ve been watching them all for the ongoing Movie Quote of the Day feature.
Though Norman/Barry’s iconic “James Bond Theme” is more instantly recognizable to non-Bond nerds, Barry’s “007 Theme” is good enough to have been featured in five different Bond flicks over the years including From Russia With Love (1963), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), Diamonds are Forever (1970) and Moonraker (1979) amd it’s a favorite of mine. It kind of reminds me of a stripped down version of Elmer Bernstein’s famous theme from The Magnificent Seven.
That’s all from me this week. Now it’s your turn. Has anyone seen anything worth talking about since last week? Lay it on me.
