Carly Simon’s “Nobody Does It Better” voted 2nd best Bond song

BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio 2 listeners voted for the best James Bond theme song in a poll as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the super-spy. A quarter of all votes went to the 1973 theme “Live and Let Die” written by Paul and Linda McCartney, and performed by Paul McCartney and Wings.

Second place went to “Nobody Does It Better” from the 1977 film The Spy Who Loved Me, which itself was based on the 1962 Ian Fleming novel of the same name. The song was written by the recently deceased Marvin Hamlisch and lyricist Carole Bayer Sager, and was recorded by Carly Simon. It became one of Carly’s only hit singles she did not write and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
