But I was comparing like with like, Goldfinger was her highest charting 21 in US and 8 in UK but Diamonds are Forever and Moonraker are both flops when Nobody Does it Better and Live and Let Die were topping the charts at a similar time period.

If a song can stand on its own without its associated film I think that actually more impressive, Take My Breath Away would be one that springs to minds as would Everything I Do, I Do It for You (Bryan Adams).

Goldfinger is for sure better known song, it's much more recognizable than Nobody Does It Better,

Goldeneye is my favourite Bond song, and I'm a big 007 fan, I've seen all the films

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.

Great song, I'm so anxious for this Bond movie, I'm also a great fan, watched all the movies more than one time

This songs as people said reminds of the old great Bond songs.... Hopefully the movie will be just as great, the last one was not that good...

I think I've been too hard on her in the past. I mean, yeah she's a bit single-minded with her songwriting but I myself am a songwriter and I get that you have to write what you're inspired about or you won't write something good. Plus it's not her fault people like her songs so much and they're overplayed as a result .
