The legendary James Bond theme music was originally written for a Bollywood musical.

Composer MONTY NORMAN adapted the tune when the project fell through and he was hired to find music to accompany 1961 007 film DR NO.

He reveals, "People recognise the Bond theme as soon as they hear 'dum de-de dum dum dum'.

"But I wrote it for an Asian musical, A HOUSE FOR MR BISWAS.

"When I was approached to write the music to DR NO I split up the notes and the tune took on a more sinister sound. The rest of the melody followed almost naturally."

Fans who want to hear the original, which is called GOOD SIGN, BAD SIGN will find it on Norman's new album COMPLETING THE CIRCLE.
