Monty Norman reveals he based the Bond theme on a song of his that featured the lyrics "I was born with this unlucky sneeze and what is worse, I came into the world the wrong way round". John Barry then did the arrangement for the song with his John Barry Seven, giving birth to the classic Bond sound. Barry only received 250 pounds for his work on Dr. No. See more »
If anyone has bought David Arnold's tribute to John Barry, 'Shaken Not Stirred', an albumn featuring acclaimed cover versions of the famous Bond theme songs, then this documentary makes interesting viewing. Shortly after the albumn was released, Arnold was annoited musical composer for 'Tomorrow Never Dies' and this programme follows the making of the albumn. Fans will no doubt love it.
