    I'm surprized by the amount of love for DAF on here... for me it's quite asily the weakest of Connery's output. Each to their own, of course.

    Dr.No is underrated because it is raw, but the banter between 007 & his nemesis in the final act has yet to be improved upon I think.

    Yes, my top four are all in there. FRWL being the odd one out (though that still lands in the upper half).

    Yeah TB-YOLT are my top 3, DAF is in my top 5 (ish) and FRWL still makes my top 10 I think. Barry's opening titles certainly do if we're counting those.

    Absolutely fantastic theme song era for Bond. Yet to be bested and likely never will.

    Ehhh...I dunno....I mean the '70s had some rather great tunes with Diamonds Are Forever, Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Moonraker. I highly enjoy all of those theme songs. With the '60s, the only theme songs I really like are From Russia with Love and On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and for the most part, Thunderball.

    MOONRAKER is the only one through the '60s and '70s that is just so/so, to me. The rest are all great songs. We got several dogs in the '80s (OP, TLD, LTK), with FYEO being mid-level, at best, and AVTAK being the one stand out. Brosnan era had some really strong tunes (I used to rank DAD at the bottom, but it's grown on me), but as much as I generally like Sheryl Crow, TND is a clunker. I think all of the Craig era songs have been very good to outstanding (CR at the top).

    The Man with the Golden Gun is sort of ass. Overall the Connery-era music is my favorite.

    DAD is a catchy tune but so un-Bond that it hurts so I have to rank it last. Sheryl Crow's song isn't very good but Surrender is outstanding for TND.
