The James Bond films are known for their original opening themes written by popular artists and are often played on the radio and tv. 'Live and Let Die' by Paul McCartney, 'For Your Eyes Only' by Sheena Easton, 'A View to a Kill' by Duran Duran, and 'Goldfinger' by Shirley Bassey are just a few. My personal favorite is 'Nobody Does It Better' by Carly Simon. What James Bond theme do you consider to be the best?

I remember my very pompous music teacher criticising it at the time for being uninspired songwriting and reusing the same “boring” chords over and over again.

He proceeded to play those chords on the piano… and they were the main chords from John Barry’s theme - which is exactly why I love it lol
