Hey driver, where we're going... stay on these roads!
I know that John Barry found his collaboration with a-ha on 'The Living Daylights' a frustrating experience, but the end result is pretty good. Barry pulled rank on a final arrangement for the title track. I have to say, though, that a-ha's own preferred arrangement at the time, which they included on their 1988 album 'Stay On These Roads', grows on me more and more: it's highly Bondian but, to my ear, synthesises that Bondian quality with 80s clubland appeal more smoothly/danceably: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bqITfmVdUI
Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 50 years.
