50 years of James Bond in music

Few characters in the history of cinema, if any, are more iconic than Ian Fleming's debonair super-spy, James Bond; few, too, can boast of any comparison to the equally iconic music which accompanies the intrepid agent 007's exploits. Since the series' beginning, the Bond films have been marked by exceptional music, including contributions from Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, Louis Armstrong and Madonna, and, of course, John Barry's instantly recognizable recording of Monty Norman's "James Bond Theme." (Adele will sing the theme for the 23rd film, Skyfall, which releases in the United Kingdom on 26 October and in the United States on 9 November.)
