Driving my daughter to swimming lesson, radio on, James Bond’s Goldfinger comes on sung by Shirley Bassey and then the most surprising rhyme, “kissed her” with “mister” didn’t see that coming. Last time I smiled this way was Warren Zevon’s Mr. Bad Example, when he sings about working in a carpet store and rhymes “Spokane” with “naugahyde divan”.

Idea for next year’s songwriting class. Write your own theme song for various James Bond films, extra marks for unexpected rhymes.
