Thanks to John Olsen for the Goldfinger & TSWLM spots!
Known as the "other" Bond theme, it was first used in From Russia With Love, and then in later films. This particular piece is a favorite of ours.
Sung by Anthony Newley, the co-composer of the song. Newley recorded it twice, first as a jazz version (which is this one) and an orchestral piece. The version used in the film was song by Shirley Bassey.
Bassey's Mr. Kiss-Kiss Bang Bang (Kiss Bang II)|
Sung by Shirley Bassey, who also sang the themes for Goldfinger and Moonraker. The film Thunderball was to have been named Mr. Kiss-Kiss, Bang Bang, the Bond character's nickname given to him by his Japanese fans. John Barry wrote this song, and it was recorded by two singers, Dionne Warwick and Shirley Bassey.
