The Music of James Bond – The Complete List

Kingston Calypso

Year 1962
Composed by: Monty Norman
Performed by: Byron Lee and the Dragonaires
Movie: Dr. No
James Bond: Sean Connery
Byron Lee

In the first movie from the James Bond series, “Dr. No”, the main theme song was “Kingston Calypso”. The movie is also the funniest of them all (although a rather black humour). The James Bond style was yet to be created. It was nothing more than a 1 million dollar movie – a mere joke compared to the current productions.

“The Three Blind Mice” were up to no good. But you don’t mess with tomcat 007 – a Sean Connery in his 30s.
