Nancy Sinatra – You Only Live Twice

Sitting comfortably as one of Miss Sinatra’s most notable works and one of the best James Bond theme songs comes this oriental influenced number composed by the one and only John Barry. Sinatra herself expressed great hesitance throughout the recording to which Barry incorporated portions of her recordings throughout a total of 30 takes to be used in the final product. The title sequence is flourishing in blood red imagery, volcanic shots and silhouettes of Asian women. It’s one of my favourite movie theme songs, the kind I can just close my eyes to and bask in it’s beautiful orchestra.
