Alternative Bond Themes - "You Only Live Twice" by The Beach Boys

OK this a little bit of a tenuous take on a title theme for "You Only Live Twice", but it is a nice piece of "what if" speculation.

It's well documented that Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys longed to write a James Bond theme, and when he was working on what would eventually become the seminal "Pet Sounds" album, he originally titled the opening track "Run, James, Run!"

The next Bond movie released after the track was written was "You Only Live Twice," so what would it have looked like if Brian Wilson's wish had come true?
