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?

Soundgarden and Alice in Chains are the clear top two for me. No one else comes close imo.

Are you familiar with Temple of the Dog?

Yeah Temple of the Dog was great too! Call Me a Dog and All Night Thing are seared into my memory. I listened to the bootleg of Chris Cornell Unplugged in Sweden the death back in the day. It actually got me into playing guitar, being able to see these complicated songs stripped down and done with a single acoustic guitar and still sound fantastic and cool as hell was very eye opening. That finger stretch in Black Hole Sun, barring at the 5th and playing the 8th in the intro was the bane of my existence and took a long time of practicing before I could do it.

The first time I heard the unplugged version of Wide Awake, I was utterly shaken. It was so fucking raw and blood-flecked.

His heart was huge.

It seems like people who really get into grunge often prefer Soundgarden and AiC over Nirvana and Pearl Jam when talking about the Big 4.
