The track, from the 1973 film of the same name, pulled in more than a quarter of the votes and provided the climax to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert in June.

The winning track was unveiled by Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo during a Bond special on Radio 5 Live yesterday.

Carly Simon’s Nobody Does It Better from The Spy Who Loved Me was runner-up.
