Nobody Does It Better
For the first time in the history of James Bond movies, the title of the opening song didn’t match the title of the movie – but it does make a reference to it in the lyrics.
The song had a favourable reception, both from the public as well as from the critics. It leaped up to 2nd place on the American chart, while the British one reached 7th place. In 2004, the American Film Institute placed it in the 67th position for Best Songs Ever Written for a Movie.
In time, the song “Nobody Does It Better” was included in the soundtracks of several other movies, like “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”, “Little Black Book”, “Lost in Translation” and “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason”.
