Your favorite 007 Movie Theme Song?
 
After I posted about Adele singing the SKYFALL song, I started thinking about all the great 007 songs. There are so many good ones but I think my favorite is Goldfinger by Shirley Bassey. What's your favorite?

It's not the best movie (Roger Moore at his oldest and hokiest), but hearing "A View to a Kill" by Duran Duran always takes me back to that time period in my life. I was 14 and a huge Duran Duran fan :love:. It also has a good video from back when videos were entertaining.

That one, Goldfinger, and Live and Let Die are my favorite Bond theme songs.

The Spy Who Loved Me (Carly Simon) or Live and Let Die (Wings)

Live and Let Die. I like the Wings version, but I do prefer the Guns n' Roses cover.

Live and let Die Paul McCartney and Wings


I will say the best thing about a View to a Kill was the song by Duran Duran :rotfl: I'm like totally an 80's girl.

I like all the songs mentioned so far, I totally forgot about The Spy Who Loved Me, I love Carly Simon's voice.

Live and let Die Paul McCartney and Wings
Goldeneye, written by Bono & The Edge, sung by Tina Turner

Besides Goldfinger, inarguably the best vintage title opening song:

Nancy Sinatra, You Only Live Twice - the sweeping, bombastic 60s style bond themes definitely peaked with this one.

Best 1970s one (slimmer pickings here):

Carly Simon, "Nobody Does It Better" from The Spy Who Loved Me - one of the few "pop melodic" ballads that has ever really worked as a Bond opener.

Best 1980s: NOTHING - all dreck.

Best Contemporary (post 1990): again, slimmer pickings beyond what Adele just did. My Vote would be for Garbage, "The World Is Not Enough." It is a quirky mix of the classic orchestra style mixed with a bit of grunge.

Never was much of a Bond fan. The only theme song I can remember is Goldfinger, lol.

My favorite James Bond theme actually isn't from a movie, but from one of the video games, Nightfire...

Here it is, tell me what you think

I love For Your Eyes Only by Shenna Easton

I love Goldfinger too. (original version sounds better than live)

I remember seeing the movie in the theater was I was a kid--I can still remember that gold body stretched out across the big screen. :scared1:

The theme from the 1967 Version of Casino Royale by Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass.
Its not your typical 007 movie though I like it.
Featured David Niven, Peter Sellers, Woody Allen and Ursala Andress :love:
