Leslie Bricusse Goldfinger
Lyrics to the title songs for the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger and the 1967 film You Only Live Twice.

The first time I met the great Leslie Bricusse was in April 2008 at Pinewood Studios outside London during an event, Goldfinger Reunion, organised by Bondstars. Having previously met his son through mutual friends in London in 2006, it was lovely to finally meet his father.

During an interview on stage, Leslie spoke about the famous Goldfinger (1964) title song including many other of his collaborations with John Barry. Something worth knowing is the fact that he penned lyrics for a possible title song for On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
