Nobody does it better than James Bond. He’s the world’s most famous super–spy. He’s also a rock and pop music star thanks to the unforgettable music in his more than two dozen memorable feature films. We’ve gone under cover to uncover the top secret stories behind those songs. And our dossier of ditties also includes classified files on tunes that were submitted to the James Bond film producers, but rejected. That’s even though a few of them might have been even better than the ones that survived the final cut. On this Part 2 of a 2–part podcast series – “James Bond Rocks” – we’ll spy on his music from 1985 to 2016. This includes his surprising connections with other superstars you wouldn’t think of connecting with James Bond. Those stories and those songs are for your ears only … and you’ll hear all about them all right here.
