More about "Merry Christmas 007" . . .

2012 is the 50th anniversary of James Bond on the Silver Screen. Rarely does Bond address Holidays, but in both the book and movie adaptation of On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Christmas and New Years Day play a major role in the story. It's interesting because up to that point in the film series, Bond had not spent any time in the cold or snow and he certainly does in OHMSS!

When trying to create a show with the holiday Bond theme, I had a couple elements from the movie soundtrack including a remix of the title with appropriate jingling bells, but not much more. I think we found some cool space age bachelor pad music and a little mad Russian music from Manheim Steamroller to round things out.
