I grew up with the Bond films.
We used to go watch Bond movies as groups of friends in the back of someone's parent's SUV with Quiet Riot blaring...what a cool parent we had in our group.
I was thinking about my favorite Bond theme songs. Of course there is the unforgettable Monty Norman theme with the "Dum di-di dum dum". Here are my top 5 Bond themes of all time:
5 "Live and Let Die" Sir Paul McCartney (iTunes) (yewchube)
No, Guns and Roses didn't write it, though they did a solid cover of it.
4 "A View to a Kill" Duran Duran (iTunes)(yewchube)
Once the epitome of hip and mod, now a little cheesy...still a great Bond song. The video is amusing if not for the originally intended reasons.
3 "Nobody Does it Better" Carly Simon (iTunes)(yewchube)
Many have sung this one, and I still think nobody does it better.
2 "For Your Eyes Only" Sheena Easton (yewchube)
Where is the official iTunes version Sheena? I love this song.
1 "The World is Not Enough" Garbage (iTunes)(yewchube)
What an achievement, they wrote a new rock song with the classic bond feel and all the Garbage trademarks. Brilliant. The music video is amazing.
Have a happy monday!
