What Is Spy Music?

Spy music is generally music in the style of classic spy movies like the James Bond franchise. These are generally orchestral or lounge jazz pieces with an exotic feel designed to excite and stimulate the listener. Spy music pieces used in spy films are often designed to coordinate with the action on the screen, with sound effects and orchestra hits to highlight major plot changes and action scenes. It is characterized by an open smooth beat with a suave bass line complemented by short, staccato hits from wind instruments. Spy music can also include songs that are about spies.
