Yes I would like to see (hear) its return. Does anyone know why it was dropped in the first place?

Yes.
Royalties would have to be paid to John Barry (or latterly, his estate) for its use, in the same way that Monty Norman is paid for use of the "James Bond Theme". Since these days it's as likely as not that the score composer doesn't get to write the theme song and is obliged to use the JB Theme he wouldn't get to write much of his own (and thus earn the royalties) by using "007" as well.

ajb007/rolleyes  I know facts don't often get in your way, Higgins, but perhaps this might explain the situation: http://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/46054/who … 007-theme/

Bring it back. 

I used to think it was a cheesy Western-wannabe library track (which it's not) but... I love it now.

Bring it back.
