The James Bond Songs: Pop Anthems of Late Capitalism - Adrian Dau

James Bond is the late twentieth century's first and longest-lasting pop culture myth. Nothing solidified the franchise's place in our culture and our imagination than the songs accompanying each film. Kronengold and Daub's book looks at the good ("Live & Let Die", "Skyfall", "You Only Live Twice"), the bad ("Goldeneye", "Moonraker") and the ugly ("Die Another Day", "View to a kill"). The James Bond Songs places each track in its cultural context alongside its film, its structure, lyrics, and what that has to say about Bond and Bond in the culture at-large. This is an important, but above-all fun, piece of cultural criticism and a must for any Bond fan or pop culture junkie.
