James Bond Rules

With the announcement of Spectre, the 24th James Bond movie, we dive into the super spy’s musical world. John Barry’s iconic theme is offered up multiple ways but none improves on the original from Dr. No, with Vic Flick’s Duane Eddy-ish guitar leading the charge. “Goldfinger,” belted by Shirley Bassey, became the template for practically every Bond theme but we go with Louis Armstrong, Paul McCartney and Carly Simon’s efforts as the all-time bests. Pulp and Johnny Cash get coolest unused cuts while the classic Bacharach/David gem “The Look Of Love” was penned for the original Casino Royale.
