This was Shirley Bassey's third Bond theme song ("Goldfinger
" and "Diamonds Are Forever
" preceded it). The song was written by John Barry, who wrote many of the series themes and soundtracks. The movie was the highest grossing Bond film to that time, but the theme song failed to attract much attention. The film was a particularly campy version of James Bond, as it was set in space ("Moonraker" is the name of a space shuttle in the movie), and this orchestral ballad sung by Bassey didn't go well with the film.
