Q. Dearest Oracle,
Could you please tell me more about the song You Only Live Twice. I stumbled upon it and I don't know much about it!
Warm regards,
Ethan


The Oracle replies:

There's not a lot to tell except that it's a Bond theme cover from the film You Only Live Twice. It was written by John Barry - the band have been longstanding fans of his work - and performed by Nancy Sinatra.
Coldplay covered it as early as 1998 and weirdly that was around the same time Robbie Williams used the string parts for the base of his hit, Millennium.
