Love this classic theme from the greatest spy movie of all times!

The “James Bond Theme” is the main theme of all the James Bond films and has featured in every one since ‘Dr. No’ in 1962.

Monty Norman has been credited with writing the “James Bond Theme”, and has received royalties since 1962. Norman collected around £485,000 in royalties between the years 1976 and 1999[1] For Dr. No, the tune was arranged[2] by John Barry, who would later go on to compose the soundtracks for eleven James Bond films.
