Never, again

Has it really been a quarter century since Sean Connery made his last appearance at James Bond? Has it really been that long since I saw it with friends at a Chicago theater, the first movie I went to see as a college student? (And why do I remember these things when so much else has receded?) In any case, a new and more apt theme song, recorded by Phyllis Hyman, has surfaced. It's no Goldfinger or Diamonds are Forever, and doesn't win a lot of points for original lyrics, but it's far more workable than the wan number used in the film. Have a listen, and enjoy the early 80s poster.
