Five Favourite Friday... James Bond Theme Songs

It's Friday again, so it's time for another Five Favourite Friday post, this week we're looking at our favourite 'James Bond Theme Songs'. Just because I love certain films, it doesn't translate that they have my favourite theme songs. There is such a strong tradition of great artists performing Bond themes that it's difficult to pick just five. Anyways, on with my choices:

1) 'Another Way to Die' - Jack White & Alicia Keys (from 'Quantum of Solace' - 2008)
Whether it's nostalgia that makes me love this song, as it was everywhere when we visited Australia in 2008, or the fact I love Jack White's Music, but I do love this song as a bit of a guilty pleasure. Whilst in Oz, we saw 'Quantum of Solace' at the Sun Theatre in Yarraville and it was possibly the best cinema I've ever watched a film in.

2) 'A View to a Kill' - Duran Duran (from 'A View To A Kill' - 1985)
It's very 80's, but you can't help but sing along with this Duran Duran hit.

3) 'Nobody Does It Better' - Carly Simon (from 'The Spy Who Loved Me' - 1977)
Another song that I just love, yes it's a bit cheesy, but I just get drawn into it. 

4) 'We Have All the Time in the World' - Louis Armstrong (from 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' - 1969)
One of the classics by one of the greatest, an iconic voice singing an iconic song. Taking the song away from the film, it's an amazing track that sweeps your troubles away.

5) 'Live and Let Die' - Paul McCartney & Wings (1973)
Truly up there in my list of favourite songs of all time, I enjoy the change in pace of the song and the energy generated as the song develops.

There's also a massive honourable mention for the main James Bond Theme by John Barry & orchestra as it's the music that defines 007.

You can read Nikki's selection on her blog here. Following our recent trip to Dudley Zoo, I've decided to chose 'Animals At Dudley Zoological Gardens' for next week's post.
