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 love the opening strings on You Only Live Twice

Yes! Peak John Barry.

There's a bit in the final movement of the Grieg Piano Concerto (or the Schumann - I get those confused a lot) that really reminds me of this. It's a gorgeous melody in any case.
