Songfacts®:

  • On Her Majesty's Secret Service, released in 1969, was the only James Bond movie to star George Lazenby as 007. In spite of this, it is one of the more well-liked Bond movies. This song is an electronic remix of the main theme from that movie.
  • At the beginning of the song, several beeps can be heard. In Morse Code, these beeps become "OHMSS," an acronym for the song title. >>
