The Saturday Seven: Favorite James Bond Theme Songs

I was fishing around You Tube last night and stumbled on a theme song to one of the James Bond films. I've always been a huge fan of the Bond flicks, but then again, it is sort of a guy thing, isn't it? As I watched the video, it made me think about which 007 theme song I liked the most. Not surprisingly, I was unable to pick a favorite. This ended up being the inspiration for this week's Saturday Seven: Favorite James Bond Theme Songs.

#1 Goldfinger

#2 Die Another Day

#3 Casino Royale

#4 Live and Let Die

#5 A View To A Kill

#6 The World is Not Enough

#7 The Spy Who Loved Me

Bonus Entry: For Your Eyes Only
Which is your favorite James Bond theme song? One of these, or perhaps another not listed? Go on, leave a comment, in this economy with so much inflation, it is nice to know the price of comments has not gone up. THEY ARE FREE!

Oooh, what a great topic! The songs and opening credits I love, the movies not so much. Probably because a Bond movie is all we ever get on TV on a wet Bank Holiday in the UK. My favourite is Carly Simon's "The Spy Who Loved Me."

I'll be back to watch all the vids later.

Live and Let Die is my fav. Then View to a Kill (as a huge DD fan, obvs), then For Your Eyes Only because that was the first one I went to see at the movie theatre. And Sheena Easton has some pipes.

And I was kind of freaked out as a kid because, OMG, in the opening montage you could see outlines of b00bies!! Racy!!

Oh, boy! That's a tough one! I love them all, but think I'll have to go with "The Spy Who Loved Me".

It's been a while since I've checked out some of my fave blogs. I think I'm suffering from withdrawal right now!

Brilliant post, as always! When you've got a moment, pop on over :) I've got something for you on my blog!

"Live and Let Die" hands down. "Goldfinger" is a close second though.

I can't remember the times I've heard Goldfinger. I agree with the number one placement. Great topic.

You know it is funny Rick...they all sound so similar that I don't think I could pick one over the other...The music is like a "frabchise" too, just like the films are....lol! And I like them all, actually...!

Paul McCartney's song of course! SO OBVIOUS! I adore him and that song is just brilliant.

Hi Rick

Licence to Kill by Glays Knight is my personal favourite Bond soundtrack. I always think it fits the image of James Bond really well. However Shirley Bassey singing Goldfinger is a classic and a song that most of us associate with the Bond films.
