#Fact
1He was cremated.
2His memorable string introduction to "You Only Live Twice" was sampled by former Take That singer and solo superstar Robbie Williams as the main hook for his first UK number one single "Millennium" in 1998.
3Residing in Oyster Bay, New York. [January 2009]
4September 2004 - in London for the opening of his stage musical version of Graham Greene's 'Brighton Rock', with lyrics by Don Black.
5September 2006 - in London for a concert of his music at the Royal Albert Hall.
6Met his fourth wife, Laurie Barry, through 007 producer Barbara Broccoli.
7Federico Fellini once confessed to an interviewer that Barry's Goldfinger (1964) was his favorite movie score.
8Early in his career the composer owned an E-Type Jaguar car.
9To date (2009), the composer holds the record for the most James Bond scores - a total of 12. Barry also holds the record for the most consecutive 007 scores - six.
10The BBC frequently uses his film themes and cues during documentaries or factual programmes such as Top Gear, Countryfile etc.
11Made many recordings with Johnny De Little, including the film themes "The Knack" and "Days of Wine & Roses".
12When Barry won Oscars for "Best Music, Original Music Score" and "Best Music, Original Song" from Born Free (1966), not only was it his first Oscar victory, it was also the first time an Englishman had won both those particular categories. Barry first heard of his wins from friend (and future "Phantom of the Opera" star) Michael Crawford who'd seen the ceremonies on TV in New York and called him in the UK with the news.
13At one point during the inception of his song "Goldfinger," Barry approached fellow-composers Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse about writing the lyrics. Barry proceeded to play the first few bars and both men sang: "... wider than a mile ..." (from Henry Mancini's "Moon River"). The first three notes of both songs have identical melodies.
14Counts Goldfinger (1964) as his personal favorite of all his 007 scores.
15Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1998.
16Japanese film and television composer Shiro Sagisu has acknowledged Barry's work as an influence; in fact, one of Shirô's compositions for Shin Seiki Evangerion (1995) is a blatant homage to a theme called "007" which appears in several James Bond film scored by Barry.
17Presented with the Music Industry Trusts' Award in 1999 for his outstanding contribution to the British music industry.
18His "We Have All the Time in the World," sung by Louis Armstrong, from the soundtrack of the Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) -- in which 007 weds -- was found in 2005 to be the third most popular choice for UK just-married couples' first dance (after Bryan Adams and The Carpenters).
19Was awarded the BAFTA Fellowship at the Odeon Theatre, Leicester Square, London, February 12, 2005, becoming the first composer to receive the honour.
20Children: Suzanne (with Barbara Pickard), Sian (with Ulla Larsson), Kate Barry (with Jane Birkin) and JonPatrick (with Laurie Barry).
21He was awarded the O.B.E. (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1999 Queen's Birthday Honors List for his services to music.
22On Friday June 28, 2002, at The James Bond Celebrity Golf Classic and Gala Dinner, held at the prestigious Stoke Poges, Stoke Park Club, Barry received the prestigious GoldenEye award, for his contribution to the music of James Bond. The award was courtesy of The Ian Fleming Foundation.
23On Tuesday June 25, 2002, he was confirmed as an Honorary Freeman of the City of York in a special ceremony at the city's Assembly Rooms. He received his award from City of York Council at a special luncheon at the Assembly Rooms where he once used to play trumpet in a jazz band on Saturday nights in the 1950s.
24Has scored 11 of the James Bond films and his influence was very much heard in the first, Dr. No (1962), via his work on The James Bond Theme.

#Quote
1[on The John Barry Seven] I hated it. I hated it. It was a means to an end. I never wanted to work for anybody else, I always wanted to be my own boss. And so the Seven was a means to get started but I hated performing, really hated it.
2[on being awarded an O.B.E.] I'm very honored. I really didn't expect. My father received an MBE at the end of World War II and I didn't believe I would be doing the same.
3[on the singer who sampled "You Only Live Twice" for his first number one solo single] I wouldn't know Robbie Williams if I fell over him.
4Geoff Leonard knows more about me than I know myself.
