Musical Reflections #9 – Live and Let Die
Here is another song that has some special meaning to me, there are actually two versions I like, so I will be showing you both.
When I was young, I started a love of bond movies, one movie in particular was my favourite – Live and Let Die. I loved the exotic locations, the action and Roger Moore who was the best Bond for me. For that reason, ‘Live and Let Die’ by Paul McCartney and Wings has always brought back the memory of me sitting in front of the TV watching the film for the hundredth time at least.
However, there was another version recorded later by Guns ‘n’ Roses that Is also amazing, but in a different way.
I am a fan of Guns ‘n’ Roses which helps, but I think it was the energy they put into the song that made it a hit for me.
Another interesting fact that I always remember, is that in the first scene with the then ‘new’ James Bond, he has a watch with a red display. My father had a watch the same as that and I still have it.
