007 Soundtrack: The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)

SOUNDTRACK RELEASED: 1974
SCORE COMPOSER: John Barry
TITLE SONG: "The Man with the Golden Gun"
COMPOSED BY: John Barry, Don Black
PERFORMED BY: Lulu

The Man with the Golden Gun is the soundtrack for the ninth James Bond film of the same name.

Barry considered the theme tune – the only Bond film title track not to chart as a single in either the U.K. or U.S. – and score to be among the weakest of his contributions to the series: "It's the one I hate most... it just never happened for me."  Certainly the title song is notable for having suggestive lyrics, and during a TV celebration for the series' 40th anniversary, Lulu's performance was introduced with reference to its being the raunchiest of all Bond songs.
