Bond themes: You Only Live Twice

It's time to look at some classic Bond themes. Unless you've been living in a cave, you will know that this week marks 50 years since Dr No was released. I've been meaning to talk about Bond themes for a while as they are generally so wonderful.

We start with one of the all-time classics sung to perfection by Nancy Sinatra. The opening of this is sublime, I think it's the best opening to a Bond theme. I could listen to it over and over. It also has perfect lyrics, just a note to whoever wrote Adele's Bond song; this is how you do Bond lyrics.

Everything about this song makes me want to sashay into a cocktail bar, order a dirty martini wearing lots of black eyeliner. It's beautifully evocative and very sexy. Perfect for Mr Bond.
