Key of G major for the verses, G minor for the instrumental sections (yeah, I’ve played this one)

Re: AJB live commentary on LALD

This title song is probably the most unconventional of them all ….. at least amkng gher good ones. I hope the next Bond song (Bond 26) is a rock song.

Re: AJB live commentary on LALD

Love this song.  Great dynamics to it.  One of the very strongest of the theme songs, and the overall melodic hooks make great appearances in the main score.

Re: AJB live commentary on LALD

Everyone knows the story of George Martin playing this song to Harry Saltzman? Harry thought it was a demo and began wondering which current female singer could do it. Martin had to gently point out that Paul McCartney doesn’t do demos (!), and that if he didn’t get to sing it then Harry would not get the song.

Re: AJB live commentary on LALD

Paul McCartney's song...the lyrics fit a Bond on the rebound after losing Tracy... it's like a Lazenby 'grieving 
Bond on the rebound' song

Amen to that.  I still want Muse to crank out one of these songs.

Re: AJB live commentary on LALD

@Barbel: Why did they make a conscious decision to make MooreBond prefer different things to ConneryBond?  His affinity for cigars and bourbon (no ice) really stand out and are completely at odds with established canon. 

I'm glad they reverted back to vodka martinis come TSWLM.
