Best James Bond Theme Song!?!?!?!

One of the staples of every James Bond film is the theme. So were better than others, but now it's time to pick the best overall.

I can never resist Lulu and also Shirley Bassey. Overall, the ladies do much better on a Bond theme song as there has to be the sex appeal.

One weekend, I am going to sit through as many Bond movies as I can.
Crap, even I am aware of how dorky this sounds.

Maybe it's better when a moderator makes a poll out of this one. And you shouldn't forget On Her Majesty's Secret Service (the instrumental theme song to that movie).

BTW, my pick would be Goldfinger. Although the James Bond Theme is damn cool too!

C ya!

Marty (has the CD The Best Of Bond... James Bond which has the first 18 tracks plus On Her Majesty's Secret Service)

To turn this into a poll, would mean creating a mirror thread then merging...



And marty! Where did you find that cd?

Gee, so I can vote for more than one song? Can I also vote multiple times (when I remember once again the greatness of another theme)?

OK, so I ended up with 4 votes. The original theme (1:40 of pure bliss), Goldfinger, We Have All The Time In The World and Goldeneye (sorry, my U2 fandom kicked in ... )

hmmm, for some reason it only allows multiple votes on the first vote.

i did tick it, cos i put 3 different votes in.

that's balls. it should let people vote multiple times, as in whenever!

The original will always be the best....

BUT...as for songs that have been reated as the "title" for the movie....I love the Duran Duran "View to a Kill"

Live and Let Die, hands down
A View to a Kill is second, sadly the song was the best part of that movie(boy can that Tanya Roberts act)

I don't think I saw every Bond movie or heard all the songs but Live and let die, Goldeneye and Goldfinger are my top 3 probably.

(to me, Die another day from Madonna was the worst one)
