“All Time High” is the first song that makes no reference to the movie title, not even in the lyrics. Not that it would have been a easy thing, with a title like “Octopussy”.”

Still, to make a connection between the two, in the lyrics was sneaked in a line from the movie: “We’re two of a kind” – Octopussy (played by Maud Adams) told James Bond.

The ’80s brought in the music videos. Even for the movie songs. And the producers of the James Bond series took it as an opportunity for promoting it.
