Song of the Day #1916

Song of the Day: Goldfinger (“Soundtrack Suite”) [YouTube link], composed by John Barry, remains one of the most recognizable scores in the entire 007 film franchise. Still a sentimental favorite, this 1964 flick, starring Sean Connery as Bond, James Bond, introduced many of the elements that would become staples in the film series. Barry’s brass-heavy jazz-infused soundtrack remains a highlight of the spy-thriller genre. Shirley Bassey famously handles the vocals to the main theme. Today begins a two-day mini-tribute to Barry’s contributions.
