The introduction describes the unique aesthetic phenomenon we call the Bond-song: a recognizable, evolving canon of pop songs that ask their audience to remember a back-catalogue of almost 30 songs written over 50 years. The chapter deals with the Bond-sound and its relation to history, with particular attention to its key architects, especially composer John Barry.
