    i have to agree, 'casino royale' is a smash from graphics to the tune. i just love the cards fallin aces heart and everything...

    but i chose FYEO of sheena easton... hmm what was i thinkin... perhaps its the song that have stcuked in my head when i 1st saw the movie when i was a kid...

    but that song "all time high" was also one of my fave.. i love the melody as it cresend and slide down.. very beautiful..

    I'm not a great fan of Tina Turner, but, Goldeneye never seems to date...

    Goldfinger is my favourite Bond. Great characters, great film...


    Love the line...

    James Bond: Do you expect me to talk?
    Goldfinger: No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die.

    Well according to our own poll Live and Let Die comes joint first place with Casino Royale, From Russia With Love in third. A View to a Kill, Goldeneye and You Only Live Twice coming in after that.

    BBC Radio 5 Live and Radio 2 have held their own poll recently and here are their results:

    1. Live and Let Die: Paul McCartney and Wings, 1973
    Full of drama and powerful guitar-riffed excitement, the spine-tingling tune is instantly recognisable


    2. Nobody Does It Better: (The Spy Who Loved Me), Carly Simon, 1977
    Smooth and seductive, the pace of the song is totally different to Live and Let Die, but equally as anthemic


    3. Goldfinger, Shirley Bassey, 1964
    The big-voiced Welsh crooner made this a soulful, epic classic. When Bassey belts out this number nobody is in any doubt of Bond's extraordinary talents


    4. A View to a Kill: Duran Duran, 1985
    This is the only Bond theme to have reached the top of the UK charts. A classic Duran Duran track it combines rock-and-roll with a foot-tapping inducing drumbeat.



    5. Another Way to Die: (Quantum of Solace), Alicia Keys and Jack White, 2008
    The edgiest 007 theme so far, shaken not stirred with its funky rhythm and bluesy slick harmony of Keys and White


    6. The World Is Not Enough: Garbage, 1999
    Garbage lead singer Shirley Manson’s stirring lyric made this one of the most popular theme tunes on the list, holding its own with other favourites



    7. Diamonds Are Forever: Shirley Bassey, 1971
    Seven years after she belted out Goldfinger the diva was asked to sing the title track to the 1971 Bond offering, which was not quite, but nearly, as good


    8. You Only Live Twice: Nancy Sinatra, 1967
    Dreamy, haunting, and completely mesmerizing


    9. For Your Eyes Only: Sheena Easton, 1981
    An alluring ’80s Bond ballad that entices fans to belt it out in the bathroom


    10. You Know My Name (Casino Royale), Chris Cornell, 2006
    Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell takes a shot at a spy serenade and pulls it off with his Seattle-grown growl and gusto
