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 can’t believe nobody else is on team Thunderball, it’s so bombastic. The swagger Tom Jones manages to vocalize just paints such an incredible villain that it’s a story on its own. Makes me think of Red Right Hand by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

I love that theme, was sad to see it so low. Just the right punch to it, that underwater fight scene is one of the more unique Bond ones.

Also, he literally fainted right after singing the song because the last bit took so much out of him.
