Re: Why are the James Bond stories named the way they are?

As I understand it, the theme was always going to have the same melody. They even had a female singer record the “Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” version of the lyrics. Later, they changed the lyrics to “Thunderball” but with the same melody, and that's what Tom Jones recorded.
Does anyone have the original “Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” lyrics?

Weird Al Yankovic's title song for the Leslie Neilsen comedy Spy Hard is a spoof of Bond theme songs in general, but it was obviously inspired by “Thunderball.”
The singer was Dionne Warwick....so you might be able to find the song on Youtube. (I know it turns up on James Bond theme CD's)...

However, this link may also help:
