She really is the perfect choice to do a Bond theme. I bet she could belt out the Shirley Bassey numbers.

I will have to see the movie to place it on the list in reality. See how the song plays in for the movie.

Honestly, I always favor the Original Bond theme from Dr No.

1) Bond Theme (Doctor No)
2) You Know My Name (Casino Royale)
3) World Is Not Enough
4) Goldeneye
5) Thunderball
6) Goldfinger
7) Tomorrow Never Dies
8) Another Way to Die (Quantum of Solice)
9) Live and Let Die
10) All the Time in the World (On Her Majesty's Secret Service)

...

23) Die Another Day

It is a damn good song. Been listening to it for a couple of weeks -- a good iTunes pickup. It's a throwback to the classic Bond songs, which they never should have strayed from with all of the Jack White/Madonna "let's make a club hit!" nonsense.

Movie is going to be great. It's nice to see a franchise "get it right."

InmanRoshi: Sorry, good Bond themes should have an air of timelessness to them. There is nothing timeless about View to a Kill. You can hear the first 3 seconds of the song and know it was made around 1984-1985


What makes the older ones timeless? When I hear them they sound like they're from the sixties, an era of music I don't particularly like either. I think thats a bad way to judge a song. A view to a kill happened long before I saw a Bond movie, but to me its a good theme (and quality movie)

yves0010: Never Say Never Again is not a Bond Movie. It was not produce through the official Bond production company, Albert R Broccoli Productions (Ion productions). So it is not canonical.


EON Productions, and Barbra Broccoli has been running it for at least two decades.

Never Say Never Again was the bizarre product of a series of lawsuits involving Thunderball. It was originally written as a screenplay by Fleming and a couple other people, with the plans of making it the first Bond movie. That never happened, Fleming sold the rights to what became Eon and eventually one of the co-authors sued. The lawsuits dragged on for years, but eventually the guy was allowed to make a James Bond film, independent of Eon. The title is supposed to have been something Connery originally said when he returned to the Bond series for Diamonds Are Forever.

degenerate-afro: yves0010: Seeing that the name of the song is THE James Bond Theme... I can see where you are coming from and I agree. But when talking about Bond Movies. The individual movies have their own themes too. Just like a Bond Girl is the girl that helps Bond throughout the movie (No Mad0nna, just because you were in a Bond movie does not mean you are a Bond Girl!).

If you are going to label something "the Greatest Bond theme ever", it had better be instantly recognizable by anyone as a Bond theme. 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. Meanwhile, even people who never saw "The World is not Enough", would know the song is a Bond theme song since it incorporates portions of Dr. No's theme into the song.


That is why, when I listed my Bond Themes, The Bond Theme from Dr No is listed as #1. It is the original and the best Bond Theme only because it is his, James Bond's, theme and plays in every movie.

I have been watching Bond since I was a kid. It is my favorite movie series of all time. I own all the Bond movies and watch them on a regular basis. If it were not for those movies, being stuck in the hospital and the week after recovering due to a car accident when I was 10, would of sucked.

Your arguing for something we all know, but you don't seem to understand that when everyone else talks about bond themes they are speaking about every intro song other than what is known as the Bond Theme. You don't have waste your time posting about this, or trying to point out a technicality that you seem to be in the minority of people who care about official labels. The precedent is already set and you're not going to change it.

I forgot all about that one. It's easily the worst though Sheryl Crow's is pretty bad as well. It's like neither of them had seen a Bond film before.

Casino Royale Theme


Yep, I was going to say Chris Connell's tune was the best-written of the bunch. It didn't sound like it was put together from bits and pieces of whatever was popular at the moment.

Best preformance? Shirley Bassey. Man, that woman has some pipes.

TigerzDad: Song is good - really good - wouldn't call it the best Bond theme ever (Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger, even Live and Let Die).


It's certainly up these with the classics. I'd also add "Nobody Does It Better" to my list of the best bond themes.

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.

2. Goldeneye - Tina Turner
3. A View to a Kill - Duran Duran
2. Goldfinger - Shirley Bassey
1. Original Theme from Dr. No - John Barry Orchestra
