  • "Nobody Does It Better" is a power ballad composed by Marvin Hamlisch with a lyric by Carole Bayer Sager. It was recorded by Carly Simon as the theme song for the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me. It was the first Bond theme song to be titled differently from the name of the film since Dr. No, although the phrase "the spy who loved me" is included in the lyric. The song was released as a single from the film's soundtrack album. "Nobody Does It Better" became a major hit, spending three weeks at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Easy Listening chart. It also spent four weeks at number two on the Cash Box chart, kept from the top by Debby Boone's "You Light Up My Life", and it also reached number seven on the UK Singles Chart. The song was certified Gold by the RIAA, signifying sales of 1 million copies in the US. "Nobody Does It Better" was Carly Simon's longest-charting hit. Her earlier hit, "You're So Vain" spent three weeks at number one, however, its chart run was two months shorter than that of "Nobody Does It Better." The title of the theme was later used for Carly Simon's 1999 greatest hits album, The Very Best of Carly Simon: Nobody Does It Better. Wikipedia
