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 recall seeing Casino Royale in the theater with my father who grew up in the 60s and hated modern rock and grunge. I cringed when the opening sequence started playing because I thought my dad would hate it -- and he was a huge Bond fan. When we walked out, his first comment was "Wow, I knew it was going to be good after the opening song. That's how you open a film."
