Topic: THE Best title Song - in your opinion

Yeah, I love the classics, but I have to say that You Know My Name just rocks so hard that it HAS to be be my choice.

What's yours?

Dalton & Connery rule. Brozz was cool. Craig is too.

For me it has to be Live and let die.  ajb007/martini  although I do like " You know my name ".   ajb007/biggrin

+1.  Singing it makes you feel a bit like Bond.

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

You Know My Name, it's so good, the rock version is awesome, but the slow OST versions in the movie are also very cool.

But it's about Largo! Don Black himself has said so. "Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" (which was the original song planned for TB) would have been about Bond but wasn't used- making "Nobody Does It Better" the first Bond song about Bond.

I do love the big brass sound Barry used for Thunderball.  ajb007/martini

"Let his death be a particularly unpleasant and humiliating one."

Re: THE Best title Song - in your opinion

1. Live And Let Die
2. A View To A Kill
3. OHMSS

Hilly...you old devil!

Re: THE Best title Song - in your opinion

1. You Know My Name - You can't help but get excited about the new Bond just by listening to this!

2. Nobody Does it Better - A real classic-sounding song with lyrics that really ring true for what Bond is all about.

3. The Living Daylights - Just damn catchy  ajb007/biggrin

(Honourable mention: Skyfall) Probably some unpopular choices, but that's just my opinion.

"Set your hopes up way too high, living's in the way we die"

Re: THE Best title Song - in your opinion

As I've said before, the theme for OHMSS is the best in my opinion, but since it's an instrumental, I have been set straight that it doesn't really count as a "song". That being the case, I would vote for the theme for YOLT, with "You Know My Name" a close second choice.

"Felix Leiter, a brother from Langley."

I could be wrong, but I believe it was our good friend chrisisall. And technically he's right based on the following definition of "song":

"In music, a song is a composition for voice or voices, performed by singing."

"Felix Leiter, a brother from Langley."

Re: THE Best title Song - in your opinion

I just make up my own words to the music, .........

Bond is Back,  he's going to hit and smack.
Blofeld will get a boot in his crack.
For being a knob.

......... and so on.   ajb007/wink

Now why didn't John Barry or Don Black or Leslie Bricusse call you at the right time?  ajb007/biggrin

Re: THE Best title Song - in your opinion

Not many shout outs for Goldfinger.

I think that is cos it's a song that works best in the analogue age, where you feel the music. The same could be send for the whole GF score, it's not got the tunes of the other Barry Bonds, but it does have an amazingly sexy vibe - on vinyl. So you get the better experience watching on those old VHS tapes.

You know, vinyl really does sound different... more 'real'.
And my first DVD was MI2 after having owned the tape for a year, and the sound WAS actually better on the tape!!! After playing a bit with the hardware I could get the DVD close, but never up to the tape standard. ajb007/insane

Re: THE Best title Song - in your opinion

Though like a good many Bond songs, another from the band's repetoir would make a better theme, such as Hunting High and Low, see also Tina's Simply the Best, Jack White's Seven Nation Army, Duran's Save a Prayer/Come Undone (though AVTAK aint bad).
