Tom Jones sings the title song of the movie. The original main title song to Thunderball was titled "Mr. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" which was also the original title of the movie, and was first sung by Shirley Bassey, and then by Dionne Warwick. However, the song was later dropped because of its length. A new shorter song was composed named "Thunderball" and the movie name was changed to that title. The song "Mr. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" is not in the movie, but its version sung by Warwick is in the album also named "Thunderball".
