"This weekend marked the passing of film composer John Barry, who wrote most of the music for the early James Bond movies starring Sean Connery and Roger Moore. Barry was 77, and died in his home in Oyster Bay, NY, where he'd lived with his wife since 1980.
Barry is most famous for the James Bond theme song (around which there was a small authorship dispute with another composer, Monty Norman), but his other Bond music is just as capable of conjuring instant recall - take this James Bond fight song. He also wrote the title songs for a number of the early Bond movies (Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice), and the music for Louis Armstrong's "We Have All the Time in the World" (covered wonderfully by My Bloody Valentine) for a love scene in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. And he did lots else besides: he scored Midnight Cowboy, won five Oscars, and was married for a few years to Jane Birkin."
