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 .

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...

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

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 recognisable just from the one word. The fact it's become associated with James Bond rather than a song in its own right like the others you mentioned is actually a strength because it immediately becomes associated with a hugely successful franchise and vice versa. Of course it helps that Goldfinger is one of the better known and best received Bond films. And I also read that it sold a million physical sales in the US by staying on the charts a long time. So not sure your chart information is complete.

Charts don't really mean much when you're talking about songs from 40+ years ago. Tina Turner never had a #1 hit single in the UK but I dare say more people could sing the lyrics to Proud Mary than to, say "Everytime" by Britney Spears or "What's My Name by Rihanna, which are recent #1 "hits".

The radio updates for "Skyfall" are out of this world. She is coming for that Billboard #1.

The best song I think is Duran Duran's View to a Kill. I also love Sheena Easton For your eyes only and A-ha The Living Daylights (only good thing about that film).
Adele does a really good job actually and I like the classic retro sound.

But Ren Harvieu would have slayed Adele and that song. Just listen to her rendition of Nobody does it better: goosebumps at 3:50

so you prefer the pop songs. fair enough, i love those songs, too, but i still think it's great that adele went back to the john barry roots.

and of course it's all hypothetical, but i still think that if ask 100 people on the street, a lot of them will know "goldfinger", and way less will know "nobody does it better". this does not mean that it's a better song or that i like it better, but the classic value of the shirley bassey songs is indisputable IMHO.

I would seriously worry if people aren't familiar with "Nobody Does It Better"...it is just one of those iconic songs that everyone knows
