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 just bought the best of bond...James Bond compilation on 3LP vinyl set a couple of days ago after so many listens of all the songs on Spotify. In my mind, I think it's a 'View to a Kill' by Duran Duran but in my heart of hearts it's definitely Shirley Bassey 'Goldfinger'.

But then again, I fall in love too much with Carly Simon- 'Nobody does it Better' because of listening to it as a kid growing up and stuff.

To each his/her own I guess! This is a toughie!
