A hilarious video with the Eastern European masters of the cello and superstar pianist Lang Lang as they take on the iconic rock Bond theme by Paul McCartney and Wings.



Some interesting facts about Live and Let Die . . .John Barry, who had worked on the previous five Bond themes and orchestrated the "James Bond Theme", was unavailable during production. Producers Albert R.Broccoli and Harry Saltzman instead asked Paul McCartney to write the theme song.

Since McCartney's salary was high and another composer could not be hired with the remainder of the music budget so George Martin, who had been McCartney's producer while with The Beatles, was chosen to write the score for the film.

Written by McCartney along with his wife Linda and performed by their group Wings, Live And Let Die was the first true rock and roll song used to open a Bond film, and became a major success in the UK (where it reached number nine in the charts) and the US (where it reached number 2, for three weeks).
