Live and Let Die (James Bond, #2) by Ian FlemingHer hair was black and fell to her shoulders. She had high cheekbones and a sensual mouth, and wore a dress of white silk. Her eyes were blue, alight and disdainful, but, as they gazed into his with a touch of humour, Bond realized that they contained a message. Solitaire watched his eyes on her and nonchalantly drew her forearms together so that the valley between her breasts deepened. The message was unmistakable.
Beautiful, fortune-telling Solitaire is the prisoner (and tool) of Mr Big—master of fear, artist in crime and Voodoo Baron of Death. James Bond has no time for superstition—he knows that this criminal heavy hitter is also a top SMERSH operative and a real threat. More than that, after tracking him through the jazz joints of Harlem, to the everglades and on to the Caribbean, 007 has realized that Big is one of the most dangerous men that he has ever faced. And no-one, not even the mysterious Solitaire, can be sure how their battle of wills is going to end…

The song was commissioned especially for the eighth James Bond film. McCartney had previously been asked to write the theme for 's Diamonds Are Forever, but it failed to happen. George Martin was also hired to write the score for the Live And Let Die film, and McCartney instinctively knew that he was the right arranger and producer to bring the theme song's cinematic scope to life. The producers had intended for another performer to record McCartney's song. McCartney and Martin, however, had other ideas. They recorded a full studio version at George Martin's AIR Studios in London in a single day, recorded in a handful of takes simultaneously with the orchestra.

Top definition. Live and Let Die unknown. The lyrics refer to a young naive person saying Live and let Live. But after being exposed to more of the world and becoming worn down by it, he says Live and Let Die meaning I'm going to what I want and everyone else can get screwed. I'm going to Live and Let Die from now on! 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-changing world in which we live in Makes you give in and cry Chorus: Say live and let die Live and let die Live and let die Live and let die What does it matter to ya?
Live and Let Die is the soundtrack to the eighth James Bond film of the same name. It was scored by George Martin. It was the first Bond film score not to involve John Barry. Due to his working on a musical, and having fallen out with Bond producer Harry Saltzman over the last title song, Barry was unavailable to score Live and Let Die. Impressed with the orchestration for the finished track, Saltzman and Broccoli considered Martin for the film's score. Martin worked closely with director Guy Hamilton who described what the music should convey in each scene as it unfolds. Only very minor changes to the finished score were asked for.
