The James Bond theme was recorded and used in 1962 for the Dr. No film.
Surrender was recorded in 1960 and released in early 1961 and was a no1 hit in the UK and USA.
I put it to you that the intro of Surrender was the inspiration for the James Bond theme. Surrender was a smash hit, there’s no way that the Bond composers were not aware of it.
Agree or just a coincidence?
