"Live and Let Die" as written by Paul James Mccartney and Linda Louise Mccartney....
When you were young
And your heart was an open book
You used to say live and let live
You know you did
You know you did
You know you did
But if this ever changin'
In which we live in
Makes you give in and cry
Say live and let die
Live and let die
What does it matter to ya
When ya got a job to do
Ya got to do it well
You got to give the other fella hell

You used to say live and let live
You know you did
You know you did
You know you did
But if this ever changin'
In which we live in
Makes you give in and cry
Say live and let die
Live and let die

    General CommentOne of the best Bond themes ever, and an excellent Macca song. Too bad Guns & Roses had to completely butcher it.

    General CommentYes, Guns & Roses completely raped the song. Macca's version is and alwyas will be the best.

    General CommentDude I love those flutes, at least i think they are. but yeah when i found out he did the original i found that out thats all. but it's still a KICK ASS song.
    i like it when he says "So live and let die" and there's those two booms! cool, reminds of like a supernatural orchestra or whatever the hell.

    General CommentEasily the best Bond song

    I imagine Paul was given the title of the film and was asked to make a song from it, what else could it be about than James Bond's job?
