The Music of James Bond – The Complete List

Live and Let Die

Year 1973
Composed by: Paul McCartney, Linda McCartney
Performed by: Paul McCartney and Wings
Movie: Live and Let Die
James Bond: Roger Moore
Paul McCartney

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!

And that’s not all! You can hear a version of the song in this animated movie “Shrek the Third“, from 2007:
