Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, an information book about the music from the James Bond films, is written by German author and Bond expert Siegfried Tesche.

The songs from the adventures of the most famous secret agent of Her Majesty has received Golden Globe and Oscar nominations, the artists is like a "Who is Who" on the international music scene - Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, Louis Armstrong, Paul McCartney, Tina Turner, Madonna and many more.

This resulted in a plethora of cover versions and new arrangements by other famous musicians and orchestras. Entertaining and knowledgeable experts told Germany's Bond No. 1, Siegfried Tesche, the exciting and often curious story of the James Bond music, its artists and numerous anecdotes.

For example, did you know that the producers had a theme song by Eric Clapton that they did not use, and that they did not come to an agreement with Frank Sinatra to sing for 007?

The Bond co-producer Harry Saltzman hated Goldfinger by Shirley Bassey and the song almost didn't make it into the film. The multi-million selling soundtrack most certainly annoyed him for some time...
