Carly Simon recorded one of her biggest hits for the soundtrack of the James Bond thriller The Spy Who Loved Me. The song was Nobody Does It Better and this was the first Bond theme to go to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
At the height of her career, Carly Simon was the perfect choice for this song. Its lyrics are timeless and her vocals just galvanize the track. Audiences went mad for it. The song’s popularity was one of the big reasons that this Bond installment became a box office hit. People still love this one, thirty years on, and it remains one of radio's most requested songs.
With Roger Moore firmly settled in as Bond, Carly Simon’s theme is a perfect centerpiece to a now classic film. It is also one helluva song. You just can’t stop listening to it once it starts to play, no matter how many times you’ve heard it.
