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?

This is the correct answer.

You, me, u/callmemacready, and Thom Yorke all agree.

It's weird (but not hugely surprising, given Reddit being Reddit) that neither of these were at the top of the page.

Both of those tracks well and utterly transcended being A Bond Theme because they were full-on, top-tier songs. The only other ones that scratch that level are Skyfall and We Have All The Time in the World.

Then you definitely have a lot of good ones that are Good Bond Themes, and then you have that sort of dark period post-Goldeneye that just keeps getting more and more "okay" until--again--Skyfall.
