#12 – Nancy Sinatra – “You Only Live Twice” – (1967)

This rather popular Bond theme was the theme for the 5th Bond movie starring Sean Connery and his last before George Lazenby took over for one film. Connery of course was brought back after Lazenby. But this was it for a few years. The song is very late-1960s and Nancy Sinatra invokes more of a Swinging London Austin Powers vibe than it does stealthy James Bond in Japan. Fun fact: if you listen closely at the beginning of the song, you’ll notice those strings were lifted from this song and used in Robbie Williams’ late-90s Bond tribute “Millennium.”
