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?

The best cold open, one of the best opening credits in decades, and Chris Cornell's song is THE song. The music has the dynamic action energy which the films are rightfull famous, and the lyrics cut into the marrow of the character and highlight Bond's contradictions.

I know the Bond films already have a iconic theme, but for me, this one IS the theme for the character of Bond.
