Bond Songs

And here’s the results of the James Bond Theme Song poll:

Song Artist Votes
Live And Let Die Paul McCartney


Nobody Does It Better Carly Simon


For Your Eyes Only Sheena Easton


Goldfinger Shirley Bassey


Another Way To Die Jack White & Alicia Keyes


A View To A Kill Duran Duran


The Living Daylights A-Ha


You Only Live Twice Nancy Sinatra


All Time High Rita Coolidge


Goldeneye Tina Turner


The World Is Not Enough Garbage


Die Another Day Madonna


As often happens, the Readership surprises me a little bit; you guys do know you voted for Paul McCartney when he was with Wings, right? Live And Let Die is not a Beatles song.

But the results are the results. My own favorite is A View To A Kill, by the way. (The song, not the movie. Either Goldfinger or Casino Royale is my favorite of the movies.) Usually (as you might expect) I find a woman’s voice sexy and appealing; and Carly Simon’s Nobody Does It Better is quite sexy. But A View To A Kill is both exciting and musically challenging; Simon LeBon’s voice is interesting and the women seem to think it’s sexy, and that’s all good with me. I really did not think much of the Jack White/Alicia Keyes song from the recent movie, but that’s just my preference; it seems to have found some popularity with you all.

  1. Doh, I missed the poll. I would have voted for “Nobody does it better”.
