‘Spies Like Us’ was a standalone single released by Paul McCartney as the title track of the film of the same name.

The 1985 spy comedy was directed by John Landis and starred Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd. The song appears briefly at the end of the credit sequence. See more…

John Landis rang me and said he wanted an uptempo rock ‘n’ rolly thing. I thought I might have done a Bondy type song — the 75-piece orchestra, more melodic, with maybe an Eastern touch, the known ingredients for a ‘spy’ type of song. I think one of the fun things about what I’m doing now is varying those things a bit.

There is a cracking early studio mix (the second of two circulating) which has fantastic guitar work throughout, especially at the end. It makes it a far more interesting listen. The vocal isn’t finished but then the commercial version is embarrassing – I hate the lyrics.
