Definitely one of the greatest composers of theme tunes of the 20th century. Everyone has a favourite - amazing music.

Legend. Arguably king of the soundtrack along with Bernard Herrmann. Brilliant string and horn writing. You can tell a Barry score from miles away, awesome composer. I posted You Only Live Twice theme on Facebook :splif:

RIP John, sadly missed :(
