Bond composer to re-record theme

Composer Monty Norman is to re-record the James Bond theme with its original lyrics reinstated.

Norman first wrote the classic tune - initially called Bad Sign, Good Sign - for a musical version of VS Naipaul's novel A House for Mr Biswas.After he was hired to provide music for the first Bond film, Dr No, he reworked the song as a theme tune.

He receives royalties for the theme's usage in the subsequent Bond films as a result of a legal dispute between him and John Barry
