The opening flute is instantly recognizable, and ideal for a tension filled scene at the 1.44 mark. Besides the 1983 movie, this piece was also used in the superb Bond documentary Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 (2012)

Time for a new blog series! I was recently youtubing score arrangements from the Bond movies and re-discovering my favorite piece of music from the franchise. To be honest, I don’t know why I haven’t shared this sooner on the blog. There are many I love and this one I can listen to on repeat. John Barry’s soundtracks tend to be beautiful, melancholy, romantic, taking you to another place.
