where bond and blog unite
my thoughts on all things Bond
Audiences stiffen in their seats, hearts racing as Bond swiftly takes out the final two assassins. They sit there in angst, waiting for something to happen...
A deep and velvety sound trickles out the speakers like thick luxurious treacle, the roar of brass instruments envelope the room the way a lion envelopes it pray. Sharp violins prick the air like needles. The symphony of instruments melt together like butter. The rich purrs of music captive.
There's something about The Bond Song that's intriguing. Every time you wait for the beast to come out of the shadows; it may be beautiful and surprisingly timid or it could be a ferocious panther waiting silently to pounce. either way it lures you in either way. For me The Bond Song introduces Bond and the film. The pre title sequence shows Bond in his element what he can do, a snippet. The Bond Song introduces the film and the main story line. As I said you wait excitedly every time for it. Yes you do hear the song on the radio before the films in cinemas, however even though you've heard it before somehow it's different. The experience of being in the cinema with many others, the room filled with anticipation, as well as the masterful title sequences that accompany the songs. Just the experience of seeing Bond on the big screen is amazing in itself. I know that's statements a bit rich coming from me, someone who has only seen one Bond film in the cinema (Spectre, 2015,) but that was the best film I've ever seen in the cinema. Honestly Spectre isn't my favourite Bond film but just seeing it in the cinema was amazing in itself. The scale makes it that bit better. The Bond Song made it even more amazing.
This is the introduction to a collection of posts about each and every Bond Song and how it was made, put together, and recorded with a little bit about the title sequence as well. The posts will be ongoing and interspersed between other posts but will offer a look into the enchanting world of The Bond Song!!
