008: sounds like bond?

The classic Bond themes have a distinctive bombast - minor key ballads that crank up to huge, hauntingly dramatic moments. Here are its siblings with their big Barry-esque orchestrations and (one hopes) Bassey-like belting.

Nancy Sinatra - Let Me Kiss You
Pamela Talese

This Bond was Made for Walking

As the bead rolls toward more sentimental Bond themes,"Let Me Kiss You" glides into place.

The song, written by Morrissey and his frequent writing partner Alain Whyte, was recorded by both Morrissey and by his good friend Nancy Sinatra, both of whom released their version as a single in the UK on 11 October 2004.

I saw Nancy Sinatra perform this around that time (with you @michaelsandlin?) at the Garage Fest on Randall's Island and she was fabulous! Long hair, short shirt, tall boots, big sunglasses, every inch a star.

This video seems to be a make-up illustration portfolio, and in its way matches the Bond mood especially if, say, Macy's were to launch a new cosmetic line in honor of our hero. LIPSTICKS ARE FOREVER semi-permanent colour rouge à lèvres; FOR YOUR EYES ONLY night vision eye-shadow and smudge-proof, rust proof, shatter proof mascara in seven tints; GOLDFINGER nail lacquers; THE SPY WHO SUDZED ME ~ a decadent line of bath products, and THUNDERBALL MUSK, an intoxicating fragrance he will never forget, plus a table spoon of which, when lit, can smoke-bomb a ballroom for a quick get-away.

PS: Another video with scenes from "La Belle et la Bete" (1946, Directed by Jean Cocteau) also exists but seems an early example of WHAT'S UP WITH THE FURRIES?
