Best James Bond Theme Song


Recommended Posts

I guess it should be, Favorite Bond Tune. But anyway. Which song did you like the most. My favorite is... saw it last night, Goldfinger, sung by Shirley Bassey. Sly :cool: By the way, find out how many times Bond got the buns here; [url=http://www.mjnewton.demon.co.uk/bond/gf.htm]Bond Booty[/url]

The best Bond theme is "Goldfinger", but the best Bond song is "We Have All the Time in the World" sung by Louis Armstrong (in his last recording) for "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". The song and John Barry's score are great, you get Diana Rigg as a Bond girl, but you have to put up with George Lazenby.

Personally I prefer "The World is Not Enough" which was performed by Garbage, but the new Madonna one is pretty groovy. If you haven't seen the movie you should - IMHO it's the best of the Brosnan Bonds yet. It has all the classic Bond elements done to the 9's. Casey

No question for me. Live & Let Die. Powerful, engaging, dynamic. It has everything a movie them needs including an end that just screams segue. (Intro credits into the first scene.) Say what you will about the Sean Connery vs. Roger Moore vs. Timothy Dalton vs. Pierce Brosnan, et. al as Bond. Paul McCartney's theme has no equal in the series. (Although there are some other decent songs associated with Bond movies.)

I knew he was in there but couldn't remember the name! :rolleyes: :D Anyway, it's my understanding that [i]everyone[/i] has spent decades trying to forget George Lazenby! ;)

Spybreak by Propellerheads. Ummm, that's not quite right. Ok. Live and Let Die, though I need to hear the song by Madana and Garbage. I have not seen the new movie and I don't remember the Garbage tune. Robert

Yep...that's right, David Niven as Bond in "Casino Royale"...which was a kinda catchy (at the time) Herb Alpert tune. But, I'll go along with "Goldfinger"..."Live and Let Die"...and, allow me to go out on a limb and say that I liked the one Sheryl Crow sang too.
"Cisco Kid, was a friend of mine"

Ted, the music in Casino Royal was by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass played the main theme and "The Look of Love", Dusty Springfield sang. Plot: [i]Sir James Bond, a spy from the old school (a good spy is a pure spy) is called back to service by the death of "M" and the imminent collapse of civilization. The opposition tries to compromise him, but even as nubile young agents are thrown at him, he remains above it all. Going beyond parody to sillyness, every agent is renamed James Bond, 007 to confuse the enemy, including Woody Allen who plays Little Jimmy Bond.[/i] Trivia: (From IMDB)Casino Royale was Ian Fleming's first James Bond novel. It was the only one not sold to Eon Productions. As a result, CBS TV first adapted it for an episode of Climax! in 1954, starring Barry Nelson as CIA agent Jimmy Bond. When plans began to adapt the novel as a motion picture, the original thought was to do a straight film of the novel. But with the success of Sean Connery's Bond, it was decided the only way a rival Bond film could survive would be as a parody. The Peter Sellers sequence is the only part of Ian Fleming's novel to make it into the film. The confrontation with Le Chiffre in the casino, the plan to discredit Le Chiffre with SMERSH and the villain's execution by enemy agents are all in the novel. So is the notion of Bond writing a book on baccarat, and the element of Vesper being an enemy spy. Reportedly, Eon Productions has been trying to buy back the rights to Casino Royale for years, in hopes of someday making a serious Bond film out of the novel.

Evelyn Tremble: No, I'm Peter O'Toole! Piper: Then you're the greatest man that ever BREATHED. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [In a building that is about to explode.] Cooper: What's the strategy, sir? Bond: Get out of the bloody place before it blows up! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Frau Hoffner: Hmmm, it is little Otto. He was one of your mother's lovers. We often find him lying around. Mata Bond: Is he dead? Frau Hoffner: Hard to tell. He always looked like that. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jimmy Bond: You can't shoot me! I have a very low threshold of death. My doctor says I can't have bullets enter my body at any time. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [In front of 10 Downing Street.] Mata Bond: I bet Mummy would've taken me in! Sir James: Mummy took everyone in. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [Upon seeing Mata Hari's bedroom.] Mata Bond: Hey, what an enormous bed! Polo: The German army was very large in those days. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sir James: I remember your chap Lenin very well. First class organizer. Second class mind. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sir James: It's depressing that the words "secret agent" have become synonymous with "sex maniac." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sir James: The whole world believes that you were eaten by a shark, Miss Lynd. Vesper Lynd: That was no shark. That was my personal submarine. But enough of this polite conversation. What is the purpose of your visit? I still remember Casino Royal as a very loooong and confusing movie... /Mats

[quote]Originally posted by Master Zap: [b]All you complaining at Geroge Lazenby... uh... have you actually viewed the flick? I actually have that as one of my Fav bond flicks! /Z[/b][/quote]I've seen it many times. "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" is a fine Bond movie. Good plot & action, great score, strong villian (Telly Savales as Blofeld), and one of the best Bond girls, but George Lazenby is wooden. He went from being a male model to Bond, due to a dispute between Connery and Cubby Broccoli. If you like Lazenby, the good news is that Timothy Dalton has eclipsed him as the worst Bond.
