I commented about this in another thread, but I did enjoy this documentary dealing with theme songs which have paralleled my entire life. I especially enjoyed information on the first decade of songs. What I didn't like was the continual crisscrossing of timelines jumping from the 1960s to the 2020s and back with no seeming narrative plan.

I was also disappointed with the jumping back and forth as opposed to sequential order. Ultimately focus seems to be more about the newer artists.

I thought I would be bothered by the jumping back and forth as well, but it was so entertaining out I didn't mind. :)

I understand the documentary's greater focus on No Time To Die, since it was the most recent film, as well as John Barry, whose influence on Bond music is huge, to say the least, and, of course, Shirley Bassey. But what I found curious was that while most songs were mentioned at least briefly (Moonraker, All Time High, etc.), the songs by A-ha (who sang The Living Daylights), Sheena Easton (For Your Eyes Only) and Sheryl Crow (Tomorrow Never Dies) were essentially ignored (unless I missed a quick title flashing across the screen).
