Goldfinger (John Barry, Leslie Bricusse, Anthony Newley)
including James Bond Theme (Monty Norman) 3.13
Mark Steyn, vocals

from the album Goldfinger
James Bond is the only spy with a score - a half-century of great Bond songs from the 007 theme in Dr No all the way up to Adele's song for Skyfall. Mark's two all-time favorites from the MI6 catalogue have always been "Goldfinger" and "Diamonds Are Forever", but he's never figured out a way for a chap to do the "Diamonds" lyric. So, when it came to choosing a Bond song to sing, "Goldfinger" won by default. He takes it as a slightly faster tempo than Shirley Bassey, and with a swinging detour through the most famous spy music of all time - the original James Bond theme.
