Some Bond for the weekend

This week, it’s a little bit different in honour of my favourite film franchise and a certain very famous spy who has a new film out, which you might just have heard about! Yes it’s 007 and first of all here’s a video of the different treatments of the Bond theme in all the films up to Skyfall which some accompanying visuals.

Next to my all time music hero, the wonderful multi-Oscar winning John Barry OBE, ¬†film composer extraordinaire, who died in 2011. He composed music for 11 James Bond films and so,so much more it’s impossible to showcase everything he did.

Here is just a tiny fraction of the music he produced for the early Bond films.
