    It's obscenely Bondian.

    Not the first of Caro's songs to have that Bond sound. EON, take note.
  • Paloma Faith - Only Love Can Hurt Like This

    Ella Henderson - Glow

    Conchita Wurst's "Rise Like A Phoenix" has quite the Bondian vibe. YMMV on whether it was intentional or not, parodic or not, but it sounds like the theme of a forgotten Bond movie. Give it a listen (and try to forget that beard).

    Jill Barber - "Tell Me" for a slower, but Bondian feel.

    Perfect for a Bond movie where Bond falls for the girl. Love the video. Has that Bond Maurice Binder pretitles vibe.

    Jill's obviously a fan. She'd be a hot Bond girl too, IMHO

    Abba started getting darker before they split up and, given the chance, surely they could have produced something special, this track is from their final album and shows a little Bond potential

    Not sure about Will Young's voice for this but, for me, the melody, strings and lyrics bring a pure Bond energy. (try to ignore the vid, this has no official vid)

    This would have been a KILLER Bond theme. Give it a listen.

    I remember I once created an opening credist sequence for my own bond movie to this song. The lyrics don't totally fit a movie but it always sounded like a bond movie theme. "The last to die for a mistake. Whose blood will spill? whose heart will break?"

    This is an instrumental I heard while listening to Slacker tonight. It reminded me of a Bond type sound. They were playing it on one of the chill stations.

    Lol! Someone put the Korean Air song to the Casino Royale credits. Not bad.

    Elton John - I've Seen That Movie Too

    I played it over Skyfall's opening titles and it fitted rather well, I thought. The instrumental section towards the end of the song is rather good and mysterious. If Elton John were to do a Bond theme I think this track with slightly revised lyrics would be cool.

    I've always wished they'd have gotten Elton to do a Bond song. :)

    Robert DeLong- Long Way Down.

    Okay, maybe not but it does have the classic Bond riff in there :D

    Nice song, @valentinzukovsky. Reminds me of Marvin Gaye.
