John Barry, the man who probably did more to make James Bond a household name than Sean Connery, died in New York yesterday at the age of 77. Barry was the musician behind the scores of a dozen Bond films, including “Goldfinger.” He picked up five Oscars over the course of his more than 40-year career, for films like “Out of Africa” (1985) and “Dances with Wolves” (1990). His compositions were often way better than the movies they were in. The piece above is from the otherwise forgettable 1979 film “Black Hole.” The LA Times‘ Randall Roberts compiled a Youtube list of some of Barry’s other great works.
