I picked three: Goldfinger, Live and Let Die, and Goldeneye. I limited my voting to only three, but I would have added "Nobody Does It Better", and possibly "Diamonds are Forever".

I think it's even more important that all of us can agree on this

I wouldn't necessarily call Madonna's Die Another Day a bad song. It wasn't a James Bond song though...

except for the butchering of American Pie it's the worst song she has recorded the last 15 years though

1976!!!

I vividly remember going to the drive-in to watch the latest James Bond movie and really really enjoying the opening sequence, the colours, the song . It was so languid. That is the one that left the biggest impression. Nobody Does It Better......
Of course I love singing along with Shirley on GOLD fingeeeeeeeeeer.
I heard a rumour that Orlando Bloom is being considered as the new Bond...James Bond

The World Is Not Enough - an absolutely amazing song Most are very good but TWINE beats them all hands down, it's awesome.

I have that Bond CD and it's great but it has every song up to but NOT including this one

Had to go with "A View to a Kill."

I remember hearing that it was the only Bond song to go to #1 on the (U.S.) charts...can anyone confirm?

yes. it was like 5/14/85 or something i think. (i only know the date because i have a billboard #1 hits book, relax.)

best bond song ever and yes, even i can admit the movie sucks donkey balls. (a little bit of trivia - because i know you were all wanting to know this - them doing a theme song would've never happened had john not been such an obsessed bond fan. he ran into cubby broccoli at a party and talked his ear off and pretty much begged him to let them do a theme song.)
