Goldfinger is the seventh novel in Ian Fleming’s James Bond series, first published in 1959. The 1964 movie was the third of the James Bond series starring Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent.

The title song was composed by John Barry and with lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley. It was performed by Shirley Bassey for the film’s opening and closing title sequences, as well as the soundtrack album release. The single release of the song gave Bassey her only Billboard Hot 100 top forty hit, peaking in the Top 10 at No. 8 .

The song has been recorded instrumentally by the Ventures, Hank Marvin (of the Shadows) and the Blue Stingrays (actually members of Tom Petty’s backup band, the Heartbreakers).

My instrumental arrangement is not a cover of any of these, but tracks the original in a surf-rock style.
