Never Say Never Again

The Never Say Never Again soundtrack cover

Phyllis Hyman recorded "Never Say Never Again", written by Stephen Forsyth and Jim Ryan, as the title song. Warner Brothers, however, informed Forsyth that Michel Legrand, who wrote the score for the film, had threatened to sue the studio, claiming he contractually had the rights to the title song. An alternate title song, by the same name as the film composed by Legrand (with lyrics by Alan & Marilyn Bergman) was eventually used, performed by singer Lani Hall, formerly of Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66. Mendes produced her vocal arrangement. Hyman's version was released in 2008.
