In over six decades’ worth of Bond films, the James Bond franchise has attracted some legendary musicians, from Louis Armstrong to Billie Eilish. As the delayed 25th Bond film, No Time To Die, slowly inches towards our reopened cinema screens this November, here’s a fresh look at the best James Bond songs.
10: Louis Armstrong: We Have All The Time In The World
Only the secondary theme to 1969’s excellent On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, but boy did the jazzman cometh. The world-weariness in Armstrong’s voice is absolutely real, as he was suffering from illness at the time of recording this song. Composer John Barry’s joyous, circling orchestral lines work as a great counterpoint to the melancholic brass elsewhere, and thanks to those moving Hal David lyrics the song now soundtracks weddings the world over.
