Live and Let Die is 'best Bond theme'
Saturday 15 September 2012
"Live and Let Die" has been voted the greatest James Bond theme. Sir Paul McCartney's song, recorded with his band Wings, topped a poll of BBC Radio 5 Live and Radio 2 listeners.
The theme song from the 1973 film of the same name pulled in more than a quarter of the votes.
Carly Simon's "Nobody Does It Better" from The Spy Who Loved Me was runner-up, while Dame Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger" came third.
The poll was held to mark 50 years since 007 first appeared on cinema screens, with Sean Connery as Bond in Dr No.
