JRaynor: I don't understand all the love for "Goldfinger"The instrumental part is nice but Shirley Bassie sounds like she's in labor.
To The Escape Zeppelin!: The only other current group I could see doing a Bond theme well would be the Arctic Monkeys. Their cover of Diamonds Are Forever was awesome.
theurge14: LET THE SKYFOEWHEN IT CRUMBOWSWE WILL STAND TOEFACE IT OWE, TOGETHER/mouf full owe marbowes Adawe
degenerate-afro: As it stands currently, even people who have never watched a Bond movie know it's James Bond when Dr. No's theme starts playing. On the other hand, there are tons of people who have heard "Live and Let Die" or "The Living Daylights" that don't know those are James Bond theme songs
skrat211: Since Dark Knight, everyone is making moves about anti-heroes
skrat211: Adele is too much a lady.
Practical_Draconian: Kinda off topic, but I noticed the 007 Legends on Steam.From Steam's description:"Play as James Bond in classic roles such as:MoonrakerOn Her Majesty's Secret ServiceDie Another DayLicense to KillGoldfingerSkyfall"Moonraker and Die Another Day already have me turned off from even looking at this game. Tomorrow Never Dies, The Living Daylights, Thunderball, The Man With the Golden Gun, Diamonds Are Forever ... better choices than those two.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: No real order, but my fans:GoldeneyeThe World is Not EnoughA View to a KillGoldfinger
Dwight_Yeast: Best song from any Bond film isn't a theme song, it's Louis Armstrong's last masterpiece, "We Have All the Time in the World" from OHMSS.
Six_By_Nine: I got a soft spot for "You Only Live Twice".
Aar1012: The Skyfall theme is bad. It tries too hard to be a bond theme and fails miserably
mjohnson71: I'm also interested to see how Thomas Newman approaches the score.
Wellon Dowd: That's my problem with this song: she never belts it out.
Fark Me To Tears: I listened to it. The piano opening is weak, but once Adele gets into it, it's quite good. I like the music from that point, too.Is it the best? No.1. Goldfinger2. A View to A Kill3. Goldeneye4. The World Is Not Enough5. You Only Live Twice6. Live and Let DieThis one might fall somewhere between 4 and 5 if I listen to it a few more times.
Broom: Adele is wonderful. Superbly talented. Despite all the misogynist prick teenagers ragging on her weight, she'll earn more in a month than they will in a lifetime.But this Bond theme SUCKS.1 minute 23 seconds before it picks up. Up until then, it's like a laxative ad.Bond. Constipated Bond.Wheel me out, Miss Moneypenny."Bond, pay special attention to this walker. We've made several modifications..."
mjohnson71: Angry Buddha: It's no "Die Another Day", but ok.Top five Bond theme songs in order of release (coincidence?):1. Another Way to Die (from QoS) - Jack White & Alicia Keys2. Goldeneye - Tina Turner3. A View to a Kill - Duran Duran2. Goldfinger - Shirley Bassey1. Original Theme from Dr. No - John Barry OrchestraWrong, wrong, wrongity wrong. Throw that one into the trash heap with Madonna's "Die Another Day".
Hebalo: Anyone who think "The World is Not Enough" is even close to this is smoking something. It's been decades since we've had a theme some this great.
Pants_Optional: On Her Majesty's Secret Service. All instrumental.
theflatline: the only good thing about View to a Kill was Tanya Roberts, the song was just Duran Duran phoning it in, and Christpher Walken doing a payhcheck flick.A real Bond would have never farked Grace Nasty Ass Jones.
