My favorite line from the movie: "Butter hook"
I don't think the song was released as a single until the end of summer as I kept searching for it. I kept checking McCartney's album (Red Rose Speedway?) but alas, it was to be on a Soundtrack album.
The New Orleans funeral was my first introduction to graves above ground. Some 15 years later I visited "No'leans" and saw them first hand. How many movies and TV shows have used the funeral march and or the cemeteries as a backdrop.... Easy Rider, NCIS-NO, and Double Jeopardy to name a few.
With George Martin and his Orchestra, that soundtrack remains one of my favorites. Martin''s use of the motif from McCartney's song is sheer excitement and brilliance. Due to changing Bonds, most tracks have an undercurrent of the Bond theme, if not right out there for you to hear. The producers wanted no doubt it was Moore you were seeing as Bond.
Loved the movie. One my only memories of my dad having such a belly laugh as Mrs. Bell sitting next to Bond exclaims, "Holy s***!" as the wings come off her little plane.
I had seen some Connery films already, but it was LALD that made me a 007 fan for life.
So excited to have a chance to see it on the big screen this August (if you're near Richmond VA, come to the Byrd Theater for Bond Month!).
