** Averted with the theme song. The song is titled "All Time High", and the word "Octopussy" cannot be found in the lyrics at all. (Music/ChrisCornell, who wrote a [[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 later Bond theme]], has declared that "Nobody wrote a song called ‘Octopussy’ but [[IntentionallyAwkwardTitle I think that was a mistake]]! They had a great opportunity and they squandered it.")
