Live and Let Die (3:02)

Cover of Use Your Illusion I

From Use Your Illusion I and 38 other releases

“Live and Let Die” is the main theme song of the 1973 James Bond film of the same name and was performed by Paul McCartney and Wings on the movie soundtrack and on the soundtrack album. The song was one of Wings’ most successful singles, and the most successful Bond theme to that point. Commissioned specifically for the movie and credited to Paul McCartney and his wife Linda, it reunited McCartney with Beatles producer George Martin, who both produced the song and arranged the orchestral break.

Although the most famous version of the song remains Wings’ original recording, it was covered by the Stan Kenton big band in 1973 and later by Guns N’ Roses in 1991. Due to its status as a Bond theme it was also covered by The Pretenders (released exclusively on the album Shaken and Stirred: The David Arnold James Bond Project), and Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas performed the song on Movies Rocks 2007, a CBS special celebrating music in movies. British pop singer Geri Halliwell, of the Spice Girls, released the song as a b-side track for her solo number one single Lift Me Up, in November 1999.
