Re: Favorite James Bond song

What about "Diamonds Are Forever"? That's probably my fave. It's between that and "Goldfinger". Shirley Bassey sang both too!

Re: Favorite James Bond song

the only reason I didn't put "Diamonds are forever" is because there's already one Shirley Bassey song ("Goldfinger")

Sharapova
Azarenka Kerber

Ok cool. And I can use "Other" for that anyways. I'm about to listen to both again before I choose,

Re: Favorite James Bond song

After listening again, I definitely have to go with "Goldfinger". The production of the song with the instruments used is much more magnificent! IMO, it's the better song to sing too.

Re: Favorite James Bond song

Man... For Your Eyes Only, Nobody Does It Better and All Time High are all-time favorites. It'll be hard to choose from them.

Re: Favorite James Bond song

Tina Turner's Goldeneye. Check this remix out its pretty cool, or fierce as some people would call it here


The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Nothing beats the original:


"He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord." -- Proverbs 18:22

"Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." -- Herb Brooks

"A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life." -- Muhammad Ali

Re: Favorite James Bond song

i love most of them (the only title song i really detest is chris cornell's "you know my name" from casino royale), and a lot of other music by john barry, too. but my favourite 007 track is probably "from russia with love" by matt monro.
