James Bond Theme Songs

One of my favorite blogs, The Film Experience Blog, is today taking on the top ten Bond songs. So I went over there to post my list in comments, and I started searching here for my list, and holy cow, I’ve never posted it!

So that’ll happen really soon. In the meantime, read Nathaniel’s.

    While this is by no means set in stone I will get the ball rolling. I am a huge fan of the music of Bond movies, theme or soundtrack. This particualr list is ever changing depending on my mood:

    10. The World is Not Enough
    9. From Russia with Love (I choose this because I can sing the crap out off it!)
    8. Thunderball
    7. Diamonds Are Forever
    6. Moonraker
    5. A View to a Kill
    4. Goldfinger
    3. No Body Does it Better – The Spy Who Loved Me
    2. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
    1. James Bond Theme – Dr. No

    Okay here is my revised List for James Bond theme songs. I have included the entire list of theme songs from 20 Eon movies, not including Never Say Never Again or the 1967 Casino Royale (Although I love the theme music in that film as well as the soundtrack). I have taken off the James Bond Theme originally used in title sequence in Dr. No since it is so universal and is used in every Bond film. If I were to include it would undoubtedly be number one. I have also not included Three Blind Mice also from Dr. No. To anyone who may question this list, it is for only the theme songs played during the title sequences and is merited on how I like the song and how it affects me. This list is not a reflection on how I feel about the movies they appeared in. For instance Moonraker does not rate high on my list of Bond films, yet I love the theme song.

    20. Die Another Day (From Die Another Day) – Madonna
    19. You Know My Name (From Casino Royale) – Chris Cornell
    18. The Man With The Golden Gun (From The Man With The Golden Gun) – Lulu
    17. Licence To Kill (From Licence To Kill) – Gladys Knight
    16. For Your Eyes Only (From For Your Eyes Only) – Sheena Easton
    15. You Only Live Twice (From You Only Live Twice) – Nancy Sinatra
    14. The Living Daylights (From The Living Daylights) – A-Ha
    13. All Time High (From Octopussy) – Rita Coolidge
    12. Goldeneye (From Goldeneye) – Tina Turner
    11. Tomorrow Never Dies (From Tomorrow Never Dies) – Sheryl Crow
    10. Live And Let Die (From Live And Let Die) – Paul McCartney & Wings
    9. The World Is Not Enough (From The World Is Not Enough) – Garbage
    8. From Russia With Love (From Russia with Love) – The John Barry Orchestra
    7. Thunderball (From Thunderball) – Tom Jones
    6. Diamonds Are Forever (From Diamonds Are Forever) – Shirley Bassey
