Mine are:

  1. Nobody Does It Better by Carly Simon- The Spy Who Loved Me
  2. The Living Daylights by A-Ha
  3. Skyfall by Adele
  4. All Time High by Rita Coolidge- Octopussy
  5. You Know My Name by Chris Cornell- Casino Royale
  6. You Only Live Twice by Nancy Sinatra
  7. Diamonds Are Forever by Shirley Bassey

*I'm not considering the Dr. No theme since it is the classic JB tune which is universal to all films.

The Man With The Golden Gun. Fav bond movie also.

For overall best soundtrack though I'd go with living daylights. Really cool use of the A-Ha theme.

That is a tough question, but I disagree with you on "Nobody Does It Better." I felt that it was one of the weakest theme songs. IMO, it is really hard to beat "Skyfall" or "Diamonds Are Forever."

You only live twice was great. As was Chris Cornell's song for Casino Royale.

I really wish they had used Muse's Supremacy for the last movie. Muse has stated that they wanted it to be the bond song, and it clearly sounds like a bond song.

1. A View to a Kill. I was listening to it the other day in my car. I was like damn that is a good song, and my favorite James Bond movie. Christopher Walken, Roger Moore, the fire truck scene. . . .

2. Die Another Day

Definitely Skyfall for me. That credits scene is pretty epic and I just LOVE that song! Actually my fav Adele song.

Supremacy by Muse also deserves to be a Bond song and would be right up there with Skyfall if it got put into a Bond movie.

I'm surprised no one mentioned THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

I'm probably in an ultra-minority here, but "You Know My Name."

The opening of Casino Royale was excellent and Skyfall by Adele was bad ass. Those two are my picks.
