    Default James Bond film and film scores

    I am a huge James Bond fan easily. I love the opening songs for each movie... each with a unique artist from Carly Simon to Adele.

    My favorite Bond is going to be the current one, Daniel Craig.

    here is an opening sequence:



    Who is your favorite Bond? Music numbers?

    (by the way I don't like Roger Moore much at all but Sean Connery and Timothy Dalton and Daniel Craig are my favs.)

    I quite like the Diamonds are Forever music.
    As for the movies themselves, they're rather good (despite some quite formulaic plotlines).

    For the Pierce Brosnan era, I like Sheryl Crow's opening number:

    I look forward to Craig's next outing this November called SPECTRE:



    Probably nothing to do with that ugly failure called Thunderball we hope.

    Default dating ourself by our generational references :-)

    With the singers (and the Bond films you mentioned) your generation is showing :-)

    From Russia With Love is my favorite of the early films, and I seem to remember it having a particularly good score (though not the best song - that goes to Carly Simon's)

    Casino Royale is my favorite of the later films.

    Roger Moore is the weakest bond. Literally, in fact: I could take him. If Roger attacked me with his karate chop, he's getting his butt kicked.

    The Roger Moore ones were the worst for me because he would quip while shooting away at the bad guys. Ummm... not realistic. At least Moonraker for me was cool because it was space-related and kinda like being tripped out.

    As usual, I am probably in the minority here but I think Timothy Dalton was the best Bond ever.

    Same here until Daniel Craig popped up in Casino Royale.

    On Her Majesties Secret Service is my favorite soundtrack.

    But I do love the City of Lovers theme from Casino Royale by David Arnold. Mainly because it is such a great homage to the music of John Barry. I always felt the series lost something when Barry left and this piece captures his style magnificently.
