Favorite Bond Title Songs

Lee Goldberg weighed in on Chris Cornell's theme from Casino Royale, "You Know My Name." I commented that it reminds me of the theme from Snakes on a Plane. Not a compliment.

This got me thinking of my favorite Bond title songs:

4. "Goldfinger" by Shirley Bassey
3. "Live and Let Die" by Paul McCartney and Wings
2. "For Your Eyes Only" by Sheena Easton
1. "Nobody Does It Better" by Carly Simon

Interestingly, three of my favorites are from the Roger Moore era, my least favorite Bond.

Roger Moore is your least favorite Bond? I thught George Lazzenby (sp?) was EVERYONE's least favorite Bond.

Lazenby's accent bugged me, but I was convinced of his toughness. James Bond strikes me as a man trying to mask that cold part of himself, never fully succeeding. Moore brought wry humor but never convinced me he was cool or tough.
