Live and Let Die
For the movie “Live and Let Die”, the producers did some more inspired things. The role of James Bond was taken on by Roger Moore, whose figure was to become an iconic one.
The main song of the movie was composed and interpreted by Paul McCartney and his new band (after the break up of The Beatles). It was the most successful song from a James Bond movie by that time, reaching 2nd place on the American music chart, and 9th on the British one.
Does it ring a bell?! That’s probably because you’re familiar with the Guns ‘n Roses cover from 1991!
