Song of the Week: The Living Daylights

John Barry was an accomplished composer and musician.  He's most well known for his work on 12 different James Bond films, but he also scored nearly 100 other movies plus commercials and television programs.  His scores for Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves garnered him Academy Awards.

Last week I listened to a podcast dedicated to Barry and focused primarily on his work with the Bond franchise.  He wrote or co-wrote songs for nearly every film from Dr. No to The Living Daylights. After listening to the podcast, The Living Daylights was stuck in my head for days.

Here is Norwegian band A-ha's recording of Barry's last Bond theme.
