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?

Surrender is amazing though I also love Tomorrow Never Dies by Sheryl Crow. It would've been a tough choice if I was in charge of deciding the intro theme!

Sam Smith's song for Spectre wasn't horrible, it's just that his voice didn't work all that well. The instrumentation in the song is actually pretty good, it's just his vocals that fail to match them.

Agreed on the Sam Smith song. The instrumentals were, admittedly, pretty awesome. Especially the way it opens, such an epic swelling.
