The Song “Nobody Does It Better” was composed by Marvin Hamlisch with lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager for the film “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977) – Listen to an Instrumental Version and a rendition by Carly Simon & Marvin Hamlisch.
The Music for the film:
John Barry couldn’t score the film; for the first time, the job went to an American composer, the great Marvin Hamlisch. One of the plus points of hiring Hamlisch was that he would more than likely deliver a belter of a title song, and he did – “Nobody Does It Better” remains amongst the finest of the Bond songs, up there with the Barry classics.
It’s an incredibly catchy melody, classic pop arrangement, and Carly Simon’s silky smooth deliver of Carole Bayer Sager’s lyric is perfect.
