Carly Simon, 'Nobody Does It Better' (1977)
Carly Simon's 1977 hit "Nobody Does It Better," written for The Spy Who Loved Me, was the first James Bond title song to be titled something other than the name of the movie. (Songwriters Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer Sager did manage to work "the spy who loved me" into the lyrics, at least.) The song shot to Number Two on the charts and remains one of Simon's signature tunes. Many people don't even realize it's from a James Bond movie.
