In 1981, the soundtrack of the James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only was released. It would be number 4 in the US and number 8 in the UK. Actually, Blondie also wanted to make the theme song, but this song was not good enough for the producers. Bill Conti and Mike Leeson wrote this song, with singers like Dusty Springfield or Donna Summer in mind to sing it. United Artists suggested Sheena Easton, a rising star. Conti wasn’t convinced, but decided to have a talk. In the end, she sung it! Enjoy
