    Default Favorite Bond song?

    Which one is you favorite song from the James Bond films? Mine are Goldeneye and Skyfall.

    My favourite is the theme to "The Spy Who Loved Me" by Carly Simon.

    It is even better when performed by Alan Partridge:

    From Russia With Love. Monro's voice flows so beautifully.

    To be fair though, all those by John Barry were fantastic.

    "A View to a Kill" by Duran Duran.
    I don't expect it to be many
    people's fave. But it has a harmonic
    modulation that is unusual for pop
    music (of its time and place).
    If you know the song
    you'll
    know what I mean.

    I didn't expect anyone else to list "A View to a Kill".

    A View to a Kill
    Goldeneye

    Licence to Kill --> It's bit repetitive but it's still damn good.
