Out of the Blue

The 10 Best James Bond Theme Songs, Ranked is a link sent along by Neutronbeam because he knows what a Bond fan I am. I'm not much for most of the modern ones, so my own list would be strikingly different, and completely weighted toward the "classics." Let's give it a shot:

10. Octopussy. Super-cheesy, but I like it. Best thing about this movie besides Louis Jordan.
9. The Spy Who Loved Me. Carly Simon, say no more.
8. You Only Live Twice. Genuine Sinatra, just not Frank.
7. License to Kill. Gladys Knight still had something in the tank.
6. From Russia With Love. Imitation Sinatra, still not Frank.
5. Live and Let Die. Wings ushers in the Bond rock era.
4. Thunderball - Tom Jones. Say no more.
3. Goldfinger - Shirley Bassey is the quintessential Bond theme artist.
2. Diamonds Are Forever - See above.
1. Dr. No - The original instrumental James Bond theme still in use today.

Honorable mention: Mr. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Was an instrumental in Thunderball. It actually has lyrics, but sadly neither the brilliant Shirley Bassey recording nor Dionne Warwick's version were used, apparently because the song didn't include the title of the movie.

Bonded Links: Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.
Link: The Outer Worlds’ dystopian future is far off, but it’s not impossible.
Stories: FDA: Purell sanitizer doesn't prevent the flu — or Ebola.
Man arrested for smoking marijuana while in court for marijuana charge. What are you people?
Science: Alzheimer's memory loss reversed by new head device using electromagnetic waves. Thanks Max.
Lab-grown heart muscles transplanted into a human for the first time.
Get ready to eat bugs if you want to live beyond 2050.
Nuclear fallout reveals fake 'antique' whisky. Real bugs and fake booze. We have officially reached the future.
Media: Crawlspace - Short Horror Film on Vimeo. Thanks Boing Boing.
We Made a Fake Green Day Album. Fans Said It Was Real.

Snowpiercer lifted heavily from a lot of earlier sci-fi short stories, but yeah, expect bugs, lab grown meat, plant based meat substitutes in the future. Should be pretty cool, really, just gotta get over current prejudices.

Crawlspace: Yet another jump scare trash short film, oh well. Maybe some day there will be some talented writer/directors.

I mean, many cultures have been eating bugs forever. I had quite a few in China. Interesting.

There's a bug restaurant here in NYC. I go to some of their sister restaurants, but this image makes me pass on this one.

Sorry but the penultimate James Bond Theme is:

* Skyfall by Adele

Dr. No, Thunderball, Goldfinger best runners up.

Personally I think Skyfall is the best theme song - and Bond film. Goldfinger would be a solid #2. Live and Let Die in at #3.

I wonder if the list is based on whether the person likes the film. I didn't like Skyfall (although Javier Bardem's performance was real good; especially the jail scene), but I thought the song is real good. A perfect throwback to the 60's but with a modern tint. Plus, Adele can sing like nobody's business.

No, I'd like the song even if the movie sucked. The song is classic Bond. The lyrics were written with Bond in mind.

Skyfall is where we start
A thousand miles and poles apart
Where worlds collide and days are dark
You may have my number, you can take my name
But you'll never have my heart

That's Bond right there.

I quite literally said that. "A perfect throwback to the '60s but with a modern tint." I feel like people don't read what I write. They glance over a few words and then reply.

That's Bond right there. And whilst Adele's music isn't my cup of tea there are one of two of her songs I like, and yes she's can actually sing really well.

They say that kid Billy Ellish is doing the new theme. Yeah, can't wait for that one. Rolleyes

That TEMT device is awesome fucking news! I've read about TEMT treatment for patients with other neurological conditions that have seen some success. I believe these sorts of devices along with neuroplasticity/neuromodulation devices are really going to be a big boon in helping/healing all sufferers of all neurological conditions.

"You Know My Name" from Casino Royale (2006) is near or at the top of my list. It really set the tone for the Craig era of Bond movies. Too bad most of the others weren't as good (maybe with the exception of Skyfall?).
