Sydney 2013 – 2015 (007 photos)
He always runs while others walk
He acts while other men just talk
He looks at this world and wants it all
So he strikes like Thunderball
He knows the meaning of success
His needs are more so he gives less
They call him the winner who takes all
And he strikes like Thunderball
Any woman he wants he’ll get
He will break any heart without regret
His days of asking are all gone
His fight goes on and on and on
But he thinks that the fight is worth it all
So I strike like thunderball !!!
The original main title theme to Thunderball was titled “Mr. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang”, written by John Barry and Leslie Bricusse. Barry had thought he could not write a song about a vague “Thunderball” term or the film’s story, so his song was a description of the character James Bond. The song was removed from the title credits a few weeks before the film’s release after United Artists requested that the theme song contain the film’s title in its lyrics. Barry teamed up with lyricist Don Black and wrote “Thunderball” in a rush. Tom Jones, who sang the new theme song, fainted in the recording booth after singing the song’s final high note. Jones said of the final note, “I closed my eyes and I held the note for so long when I opened my eyes the room was spinning.”
Over at the wordpress weekly challenge, the topic is The Rule of Thirds. As you can see from the last photo, I do obey the photographic rules sometimes.
