Mine is Moonraker By John Barry and Shirley Bassey.
YouTube - Moonraker Theme Song
How bowt yu?
Shirley Bassey - Diamonds are forever.
The spy who loved me, it's so funky
True, but this is the real tune. :wink:
YouTube - Carly Simon's "Nobody Does It Better"
YouTube - Goldfinger - Shirley Bassey (1964)
yep! same here!
(funny -- this one was running through my mind earlier today)
Let's see. . . In no particular order: Goldfinger, The Spy Who Loved Me (Nobody Does it Better), A View to a Kill.
I like this one too :smile:
Can I have more then one ZM? :biggrin1:
Its these 2 in that order
YouTube - James Bond-Live And Let Die Music
YouTube - The world is not enough
Not strictly the theme song but Id like to mention this classic from ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE.
Here's a list of all the theme songs;
Lulu- Man w/the Golden Gun.
Saw this one when I was a kid. Song jumped off the screen at me and I was humming it all day. It still plays through my head from time to time to this day.
YouTube - "You Only Live Twice" opening w/ music by Nancy Sinatra
BTW ... Coldplay tried to cover this song recently ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oow6_5CY_k&feature=related
theme for The Spy Who Loved Me
These are my 2 favorites and have equal appeal to me.
The only Bond song that was ever considered for a grammy of course;
YouTube - Sheena Easton - For your eyes only
That's my favorite. It's a great song besides being a great theme.
That tune is AWESOME and the movie was one of 007's most underrated films.
My mom used to have the soundtrack album for the movie which was one of those double length records with the artwork that filled both "pages". It contained stills from the movie (I was too young to watch it) and I used to sit and stare at those pictures for what seemed like hours.
To this day, I still am scared of men with metal teeth and have a permanent boner for Barbara Bach. lol!!!!
I have so many... I have seen all of them and once in order from first to the last.
Shirley Bassey - Goldfinger
Duran Duran - View to a Kill
Madonna - Die Another Day
Those are my top three.
My fav is The World is Not Enough, written by David Arnold, who has also written the score for the last 6 Bond Films. I forget who performed that one though.
Shirley Manson from Garbage... Great song
"Nobody Does It...", "For Your Eyes..." are kinda sappy (imo). "Moonraker" kind of too, tho it has more dynamic elements that I've grown to like. Tomorrow Never Dies... "garbaaage"...
"Thunderball" and "From Russia With Love" more mellow, like fine wines - classic pieces.
My favs though are:
"You Only Live Twice"
"Theme from Her Majesty's Secret Service" AND the Louie Armstrong piece from the same movie - "We Have All the Time in the World"
"View To A Kill"
"The Living Daylights"
"Live and Let Die"
and of course Gladys Knight's goose pimply rendition of "A License To Kill"
