John Barry Prendergast (born November 3, 1933 in York, England) is a British composer of film music. He is best known for his music for James Bond.

He began training in jazz before writing for film. His first film is the seductive (Beat Girl, 1960). It reworks the theme song for James Bond written by Monty Norman and is one of the most popular themes in the world. He later composed the music of James Bond into the 1980s. His music for the TV series The Persuaders (1971) also contributes to his reputation already well established.

Considered one of the greatest composers of contemporary films (such as John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Michel Legrand, and Ennio Morricone), he composed the music for very large productions such as Out of Africa or Dances with wolves. John Barry composed music generally heightened the romantic style and is an outstanding melody whose style is quickly recognizable.

It was the first husband of Jane Birkin and they had a daughter, the photographer Kate Barry.
