Biography

You Only Live Twice is the soundtrack for the 5th James Bond film of the same name.

It was composed by Bond veteran, John Barry. At the time, this was his fourth credited Bond film. The theme song, “You Only Live Twice”, was sung by Nancy Sinatra.

In 1998, Robbie Williams sampled the title song “You Only Live Twice” for the chart-topper “Millennium”. A rock version of “You Only Live Twice” was covered by Coldplay when they toured in 2001, and was covered by Natacha Atlas for her 2005 compilation album The Best of Natacha Atlas. The Icelandic singer Björk also recorded a cover version.

Interestingly, an alternative example of a possible theme song (also called “You Only Live Twice” and sung by Lorraine Chandler) was discovered in the vaults of RCA records in the ’90s. Probably intended as a demo for consideration by the film’s producers, it became a very popular track with followers of the Northern soul scene (Chandler was well known for her high-quality soul output on RCA) and can be found on several RCA soul compilations.
