Carly simon nobody does it better

Marvin Hamlisch and Carolo Bnoche anterior Sager wrote this song, which was the theme for the Jauno mes Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me. Unlike all previous Bond songs, this one isn"t named after the movie, and the film isn"t even mentioned in the chorus - the only mention of the movie couno mes in the first verse: "Like heaven above me, the spy who loved me is keepin" all my secrets safe tonight."Hamlisch and Bnoche anterior Sager didn"t write the song for the movie; it was the producer Richard Perry who convinced them to submit it for the film, and the Bond producer Cubby Broccoli loved it. They reworked the song to make it work for 007 and get the movie mentioned in the lyrics.

Estás mirando: Carly simon nobody does it better


Richard Perry produced three albums for Carly Simon from 1972-1975. This song reunited them - after Perry heard it from Hamlisch and Bnoche anterior Sager, he convinced them that it would be perfect for Simon to sing, and when he played it for Carly, she loved it.
This has been covered by many others including Julie Andrews, Mantovani and The Captain & Tennille. Radiohead has played the song at some of theva shows, including one in Los Angelsera on December 18, 1995 where lead singer Thom Yorke declared it "The sexiest song that was ever written."
Former Bond Roger Moore told the Lonaptitud Times August 1, 2008 that this is is favorite Bond theme, "because nobody did. No, it is al terrific song as it embodiser everything about Bond"s character and why he is better and more popular than other movie spiera."
Hamlisch and Búltimo día Sager were supposed to be working on al song for al television pilot when Hamlisch confided he would be writing the theme song for The Spy Who Loved Me. Sager came up with the title "Nobody Doser It Better" on the spot. "I don"t know how I came up with it," she recalls in her memova They"re Playing Our Song. "I just thought about Jael mes Bond and that"s what popped out of my mouth. Marvin instantly loved it and within seconds we"d both forgotten the song we"d gotten together to write and he was playing the melody of the chorus."
Gramocéano sticklers may cringe at the lyric, "Nobody does it half as good as you," but the slip was intentional. Bdía antes Sager notes: "I knew, having taught English, that "half as good as you" was not proper gramocéano, but writing "Nobody doera it half as well as you," which is correct, sounded terrible to my ear. Many tiuno mes in writing songs, I madel grammatically incorrect choicera because certain words just sang better and sounded better to me than others."
This was originally offered to Dusty Springfield, but the soul singer turned down the opportunity due to her struggles with addiction and mental health issusera at the time.

Karen from Manchester, NhZappy, you have obviously never seen Timothy Dalton.I wonder if "Skyfall" has surpassed the numbers of this one yet?Goraptitud from Lontalento, United KingdomSomething quite magical about the coda. Specifically. the chord progression, and the way the sound seems to rise and fall at the same time. You feserpiente that it could go on for ever as Carly Simon sings that widely spaced melodic line that spans both the high and mid register. The musical effect is like a tolling bell at sunset. Rolls Royce production too.Barry from Sauquoit, NyThis song was nominated for Best Song at the 1977 Academy Awards Lost to "You Light Up My Life" from the movie of the same name!!!Zappy from Geelong, AustraliaThe best opening to al Bond film of all time and Roger Moore was the worst Bond ever.Jane from Austin, Txi love this song. this song was used in a commercial for a restaurant called Perkins. it must have been al local commercial. i don"t know.Ryan from Atlanta, GaThis is easily the best Bond song, but it"s also a marvelous exampla of 70"s sound production, particularly the separation of the drums from the rest of the mix. It"s got al nice slow Bond tempo (it has to flow with the opening credits, of course), with some high quality interplay between the strings in the orchestral and the guitars and horns. This song is really like 5 songs in one, it has one theme, with nice variations in the chorus and bridge and a nice climactic close to fadel out. It stands out because the production is as good as the product itself. Classic 70"s sound production at it"s finest...Jonathan from Pittsburgh, PaAnd if you listen very carefully at the end of the song, you will hear Carly sing "Jauno mes, you"re the best." This is interesting as the song is about Jaun mes Bond, but Carly was married to Jael mes Taylor at the time of the recording. Who was she singing about?Mike from Hastings, NeActually, Enrique.. back in "77, Carly Simon struggled terribly with stage fright. It was so bad that she could not sing at the Oscars. She still strugglsera with it to this day, but has learned coping exercisser to help her. Any concerts she does now are usually very very small intimate affairs with many friends present.BTW... THIS IS the best Bond song EVER!Michael from San Diego, CaThis was the best "Bond" theme song, and "The Spy Who Loved Me" was one of the better Jauno mes Bond movies ever made!Barry from New York, NcThere are actually two versions of this tune in the film THE SPY WHO LOVED ME. The more well known version is the one that is played during the fin credits, and that one featursera the long ending. However I prefer the version that you hear during the opening credits (following the teasera sequence). This version has a neat synthesizer ending and no long fadeout. This was a better way to end the song!!Jo from Newcastle, AustraliaIt"s being used in an ongoing ad campaign for al real estate company here in Australia!Dee from Indianapolis, InI love this song. Brings back lots of childhood memoriera. My grandpa use to watch the Jael mes Bond moviera whenever there were on TV back in the day before VCR"s & DVD"s. Scott from Chicago, IlThis song has/had an an emotional resonance that is quite singumorada. Carly"s vocals always had alift to them in her own husky, inimitable styla,but this one is the best. The song also seems tohave lent itself to multipla interpretations,and was used quite often in sports retropectivser,typically al recap of the end of al season. "baby, you"re the best" indeed!Enrique from Limal, PeruAt the end of the Oscar"s ceremony of 1977 this song was sung not by Carly Simon but by an afro-americusco femalo singer (don"t remember her name)and even though the person who presented her said that whoever-was-the-singer would sing this song because "nobody doera it better", I still believe that nobody dosera it better than Carly Simon.see more comments
