Counting down til nov 17 another bond post (I know that some-people will be pissed off at another BOND POST F@$K SAKE) well youre not true bond fans if you dont love the theme songs SHAME ON YOU!!!

Dame Shirley, Tom Jones, Monty Norman, Tina Turner, (MADONNA who almost ruined these past songs with her crap die another day) and now chris cornell (if you havent heard it hear it on you-tube now) YOU'LL KNOW MY NAME that sounds great with the dark vibe/look of casino royale!

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER:
Bond: So moneypenney what can I bring you back from amsterdam?
Moneypenney: A Diamond.... in a ring!
Bond: Would you settle for a tulip?
Moneypenney: Yeees!

One of my personal favourites is The World Is Not Enough by Garbage, but I'm a big Garbage fan anyway so that might be why.

Live And Let Die is by far the best, although I do have a soft spot for Goldeneye. All the recent ones have been very forgettable. If you can't sing a Bond theme after one listen it's no good!

Moonraker's was Moonraker by Shirley Bassey, which made hard work of making a dog of word like Moonraker fit seemlessly into a love song.

The best was 'For British Eyes Only'.

The whole sound track too OHMSS is classic bond and i agree with krudler;We Have All The Time In The World is the all time best 007 track!

It's not technically a theme song, though, as it only plays out the credits at the end, if memory serves me correctly. If I'm wrong feed me to a school of sharks. Great song, though.

For Your Eyes Only is one of my faves, as is Tomorrow Never Dies, and of course, All Time High (from Octopussy). The worst themes for me are Moonraker and The Man With The Golden Gun. I'm not too keen on the new theme either...

For me, it's between Live and Let Die and We Have All The Time in the World. I also like Goldfinger, The Living Daylights, You Only Live Twice, Nobody Does it Better and View to a Kill (best thing about that film). The recent themes have been very forgettable.

Nobody Does It Better by Carly Simon from The Spy Who Loved Me.
Goldfinger by Shirley Bassey from Goldfinger.
All Time High by Rita Coolidge from Octopussy (very under-rated).
Thunderball by Tom Jones from Thunderball.
Live And Let Die by Wings from Live And Let Die

i have always had a soft spot for the man with the golden gun
also Live and Let Die, Diamonds Are Forever, Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Die Another Day, A View To A Kill. To be honest, they have never really gone wrong, apart from Moonraker
