My musical psychos!

I'm working on the League of Evil Geniuses "Death to Spies!" party mix for our party at Further Confusion.

I've got all the James Bond themes. I've got Music from The Man From U.N.C.L.E. I've got the soundtracks from the first two Austin Powers movies.

Please comment with your favorite spy-related songs. These can be obvious or obscure (such as the "Lando's Palace" theme from The Empire Strikes Back). If you're worried the connection might be too obscure, explain why you think it's a good choice.

Spy School Anthem from Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet is a good.
There's a couple of them on the Combustible Edison albums (Spy vs. Spy comes to mind)
I can't remember the name of the song, but it's about the worst spy for the USSR.

Got all the Combustible Edison...

I love Moby's techno remix of the classic James Bond theme. It's a nice change of pace. Also, anything from the Austin Powers soundtracks, just to be cheeky.
Jan. 11th, 2007 01:33 am (UTC)
Got it.
Jan. 11th, 2007 12:53 am (UTC)
I have a SKA version of the Bond theme.
Jan. 11th, 2007 01:20 am (UTC)
Do you have Dionne Warwick's "Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang"? IIRC, it was written for one of the Bond films (possibly OHMSS) but it wasn't a theme song.
Jan. 11th, 2007 01:33 am (UTC)
Both Warwick's version and Shirley Bassey's version...
Jan. 11th, 2007 01:25 am (UTC)
How about the theme from Get Smart if you can find it/
Jan. 11th, 2007 01:27 am (UTC)
The Look of Love and the Title Song from Casino Royal (1967 version)?
Jan. 11th, 2007 01:37 am (UTC)
"The Look of Love" is on an Austin Powers Soundtrack. The original Casino Royale theme is a bit more difficult to get, but I can probably do something about that.

I love your parties

Re: I love your parties
I've already got more tracks than time. Since I automate everything, I'm going to try to cut back to a 2-3 hour playlist; I'd actually like to have the music loop at least once during the party.
Jan. 11th, 2007 02:04 am (UTC)

I'm interested in some spy music that is a little more upbeat... I'm going to be playing the opening night dance, and would love some good spy music that is dance-able. My yahoo im is sfaaron26, if you have some time to throw some tracks my way......
Jan. 11th, 2007 05:46 am (UTC)
I'll see if I can throw together a data disc of the tracks I'm not using for the party.

Diamonds are Forever is a remix album of Shirley Bassey tunes. It includes a bunch of stuff that she did for Bond films. I know it's on iTunes Music Store.

You people are all too young. You need Johnny Rivers "Secret Agent Man". Lyrics here

MKK-- a pretty face can hide an evil mind
Jan. 11th, 2007 02:16 am (UTC)
yes! then there is Secret Agent Man in Spanish, from the Repo Man soundtrack... Hombre Secreto! I believe the band is the Plugz. Good instrumentals by the Plugz also on the soundtrack album (which I used to have on vinyl, speaking of "you people are all too young"!)

Also, most anything from the Derek flint movies would be cool.
