  • This song got an Oscar but it's not the full version of the track.
  • he rocks this song live
  • Love the Jamaican footage in the Bond movie... Simply IRIE... but the tempo changes of this tune are magical as is Paul's vocal delivery. He's truly the KING OF MUSIC.
  • A play on the phrase "live and let live," this was the title song for the 8th James Bond film. It was the first to star Roger Moore as Bond. Wings co-founder and original drummer Denny Seiwell said of this song: "Everybody thought it was cool that we were doing something for James Bond. I remember what Paul told us - he said a couple weeks before we did the actual recording, he said they wanted him to write the theme to the next James Bond movie, and they sent him the book to read. And we were up at the house one day and he had just read the book the night before, and he sat down at the piano and said, 'James Bond... James Bond... da-da-dum!', and he started screwing around at the piano. Within 10 minutes, he had that song written. It was awesome, really. Just to watch him get in there and write the song was really something I'll remember the rest of my life."
  • Great. The movie was pretty bad though.
  • Live and Let I remember very clearly the Bond movie this was used in, I believe it was Roger Moore's first appearance as Bond...good movie. Great song!
  • Good song
  • Paul said he and the other guys wanted to write movie songs - for Frank Sinatra, if I recall. This was an even better choice, if you ask me... this is one of my favorite 007 themes.
