Ranking James Bond Theme Songs

Just as memorable as a James Bond film, is usually the theme song which accompanies it. Here’s a top 10 list of my favorites in order.

10 - Chris Cornell - “You Know My Name”

9 - Ike and Tina Turner - “Goldeneye”

8 - A-ha - “The Living Daylights”

7 - Shirley Bassey - “Diamonds Are Forever”

6 - Garbage - “The World Is Not Enough”

5 - Jack White & Alicia Keys - “Another Way To Die”

4 - Sheena Easton - “For Your Eyes Only”

3 - Paul McCartney - “Live And Let Die”

2 - Carly Simon - “Nobody Does It Better”

1 - Adele - “Skyfall”

Other notable mentions: Madonna’s “Die Another Day” is a decent song, but sticks out horribly as a James Bond movie theme.

Sam Smith’s “Writing’s On The Wall” is probably my least favorite James Bond theme ever.
