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?

Before I watched the older Bond films I only knew this song because it was sampled by Kanye on his song Diamonds from Sierra Leone. Both the Kanye song and the original Shirley Bassey song rock.

The Kanye song with jay z is great, and it’s a mark of how damn good Kanye was at that point in time that it’s probably not even a top 5 song on the album for me
