The Name's Cocker, Jarvis Cocker
Much debate (well, a few scribbles) au previous post concerning the (I think) rather excellent John Barry score for the otherwise risible 'Octopussy' and Ms Rita Coolidge's 'contribution' thereto.
Seems an excellent opportunity to share with you this quite marvellous interpretation from the excellent David Arnold James Bond project Shaken And Stirred featuring the man who (quite rightly) waved his arse at Michael Jackson, and band.
David Arnold featuring Pulp - 'All Time High' (1997)
Our Lord John Barry liked Arnold's re-imagining of his original material on this album so much that he recommended the younger composer to Barbara Broccoli; and Arnold has gone on to score every Bond movie from 'Tomorrow Never Dies' to date.
