Noticed we've had a lot of competitions going on today, so I wanted to focus solely on one topic: music. What is your favorite James Bond theme song, from DN to QoS?

Mine may have to be 'For Your Eyes Only' by Sheena Easton. Been feeling a lot of love for this movie lately, especially the theme song.

    Live and Let Die
    The Spy Who Loved Me
    Moonraker
    For Your Eyes Only
    A View To a Kill
    The Living Daylights
    Goldeneye
    Goldfinger
    You Only Live Twice
    Casino Royale

    Not in any particular order.
  • Goldfinger will always be my favorite, that song still send shivers down my spine. I will be the happiest Bond fan ever if Bassey does the BOND23 title. Encore!

    Well, as usual, I can't really narrow down to one specifically. :-D
    However, I'll shout out my Hall of Fame:
    -Live and Let Die (good old classic rock!)
    -A View to a Kill (keep the classic rock coming!)
    -The Living Daylights (same as above!)
    -GoldenEye
    -Moonraker: not sure why I like this one, but I just do
    -Thunderball
    -Nobody Does it Better
    -On Her Majesty's Secret Service: very epic!

    Brilliant idea!

    Oh, I did forget License to Kill. Ever since I first watched it, I've loved its theme song. It really sets the tone for the rest of the movie.

    Perhaps the boring answer but I'd pick We Have All The Time In The World.

    We can always dream. She can make magic.

    That reminds me. I forgot Diamonds Are Forever. Every Bassey track, imo, is pure gold.

    My Favorites ranked in order:

    1. Moonraker
    2. OHMSS theme
    3. You Only Live Twice
    4. Diamonds Are Forever
    5. From Russia With Love (opening title theme)
    6. Goldfinger
    7. We Have All the Time in the World
    8. Nobody Does It Better
    9. All Time High
    10. View to a Kill
    (11). Live and Let Die

    (8 of these 10 are John Barry scores naturally)

    The rest are all pretty good,

    These ones I could do without:

    DAD
    FYEO - Might have been a better track without Sheena Easton
    TND
    QOS

    **Edit: Forgot about We Have All the Time in the World--which is an easy #7, knocking out LALD from my top 10. I'm a romantic what can I say?

    @zebrafish, same! Ever since I re-watched DN a week or so ago, I've been whistling it.

    @Creasy47 and @zebrafish: I think that may be the only time we hear Bond sing, if I'm correct. Kind of funny!

    @00Beast, I think it may be, though Daniel Craig has his own brand of singing during the CR torture scene, haha.

    I'm sure Bond hums, but never sings to MP in DN. If I remember correctly.

    Yeah, I don't think he sings to her.
