I didn’t include the John Barry themes, not only because they are instrumental, but because they are universally considered awesome. So I decided to focus on these songs. since they are usually the most acclaimed ones. Which of these is your favorite?
I liked Gladys Knight Licence to Kill (lol I know sounds weird for man)…
Well, I liked them all. But, I voted for For Your Eyes Only.
“GoldenEye” by a mile, followed by “Living Daylights”, “Diamonds Are Forever”, “For Your Eyes Only” and “The Man with the Golden Gun”.
I voted for Nobody Does It Better. I also really like Duran Duran’s View To a Kill. Goldfiner, Goldeneye, Skyfall & Live and Let Die are all great too!
Live and Let Die is the best song, easily, although Goldfinger is classic and iconic.
1.- Lulu – The Man With the Golden Gun
2.- Louis Armstrong – We have all the time in the world
3.- Duran Duran – A view to Kill
4.- Paul McCartney & The Wings – Live and Let Die
5.- Madonna – Die Another Day
Wow I’m surprised there are no votes for Goldfinger and Shirley Bassey. I thought it would win this poll, which is why I went with another tune which I like.
1. Chris Cornell “You know my name”
2. Madonna “Die Another Day”
3. Nancy Sinatra “You Only Live Twice”
“A View to a Kill” and “The World Is Not Enough” will probably forever be my top 2.
Shout out to “The Living Daylights,” too. I often get the sense it’s kinda underrated as a Bond theme song.
