Film Music Friday - August 5, 2022 (Bond, James Bond)

This week on Film Music Friday we're hearing the music of Bond, James Bond.  Rather than the enormously popular songs that have opened most 007 movies, we'll focus instead on the orchestral scores created for the films by composers like John Barry, David Arnold, Marvin Hamlisch, Hans Zimmer and others, including themes from Dr. No, Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice, The Living Daylights, the most recent Bond film, No Time to Die, and more.
