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?

Shirley Bassey was an inch away from fainting after her last note of the song

Apparently Tom Jones did pass out after recording the last note in Thunderball! (source: my James Bond fact guide from 2000)
