Topic: What is your favorite and least favorite Bond song?

to trow some fire into this I figure I start by mentioning this video.

It seems that the Bond song itself had something to do with a man and his sneeze.
'fascinating'

I guess my favorite would be the the one from Dr. No and the least favorite the latest one from QoS.

Re: What is your favorite and least favorite Bond song?

Favorite: "On Her Majesty's Secret Service theme" by John Barry
It's a song that just conjures up Bond ... going through a hour glass!

Least Favorite: "Another Way To Die" by Alicia Keys and Jack White
It's the most un-Bond song I've heard in the series, I couldn't even bring myself to view the music video on the DVD special features!

It's the biggest! It's the best! It's Bond and beyond!

Re: What is your favorite and least favorite Bond song?

Best piece of Bond music: OHMSS theme

Best actual song: You Only Live Twice

Worst song: Die Another Day

Re: What is your favorite and least favorite Bond song?

For me the only one I can't STAND is Another Way to Die. There is nothing classy or memorable about it. It looks (the video) sounds, and feels like it was hastilly thrown together, and just doesn't work!

All of the others have great qualities, reflecting the timeframe of the film they come from, and often have energy and punch, - or alternatively a swish of romance, intrigue or menace. Even the "Poppy" tunes are up my street, I like Paul McCartney's muscial style, and have always loved both Duran Duran and Aha's music.
         The only one that edges in front of the others for me  is Chris Cornell's You Know My Name. Loved it the second I heard it! Not just cause its punchy and almost autobiographical to the character of 007 himself, but also its one I can sing! 

Also an honourable mention to "We Have All The Time In The World" - Louis Armstong's gentle romantic love ballard? Classic stuff!

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

22

Re: What is your favorite and least favorite Bond song?

Best: Any from Goldfinger, From Russia with Love, Thunderball or Diamonds are Forever.

Worst: Anothe Way to Die. Just horrible.

I'm a stuck-in-my-ways John Barry/Shirley Bassey man.

Green figs, yoghurt, coffee very black.

...after my own heart! JB is a musical genius, and as for Bassey there's something about the way she sings attracts me like no other.

It's an incredible song! And it suits the tone of the movie so well.

Re: What is your favorite and least favorite Bond song?

Bassey's Best may be Diamonds are Forever while
the worst is Moonraker which is a bit weak and drab.
(They couldn't get Kate Bush to sing Moonraker at the time.)

Bleuville.  "JAWS! You obey me!"      Drax from Moonraker.
