NOBODY DOES IT BETTER (Carly Simon Cover)

Cover performed in 1995

 

Thom claimed in a bootleg recording of a live performance in 1995, that this is the 'sexiest song that was ever written' before playing a rock cover of the song.

 

Original composed by Marvin Hamlisch with lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager.

 

Recorded by Carly Simon as the theme song for the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me.

 

It was the first Bond theme song to be titled differently from the name of the film since Dr. No, although the phrase 'the spy who loved me' is included in the lyrics.

 

The song was released as a single from the film's soundtrack album.
