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 . 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.

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

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.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcIl_6amBvU

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.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNA7DcVppEs

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.

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 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.

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.

Nobody Does it Better

Live and Let Die - I saw Paul McCartney in concert last year and he "killed" every song he did
