Can’t see what OP has posted but best was Garbage with The World is Not Enough.

honourable mention to this too:

Such a shame as it's a great song and when edited with the film works really well. Considered "too dark" which makes you question the reasoning for getting Radiohead to do it in the first place. Instead we end up with Sam Smith doing some generic pop song. Yawn.


The full edit.

I honestly couldnt remember the theme songs to any of Craigs besides Casino Royale and Skyfall. The themes simply arent memorable. Although thats maybe because they havent been played on repeat for the last 30 years.

Live and Let Die, Living Daylights,On her Majestys Secret Service and Skyfall are my top tier. (personal reasons for Skyfall its actually not a great tune)

Some of the weaker ones would be Moonraker, and most of the Brosnan ones besides Goldeneye.

They're definitely top tier. Goldfinger and Diamonds are Forever get an honourable mention.

“You Only Live Twice” by Nancy Sinatra is for me the most evocative of that exotic glamour of the Sean Connery era before Bond fell into camp.

Speaking of Roger, ”Live and Let Die” is the best song.

Of the Daniel Craig era, the songs for “Casino Royale” and “Skyfall” are the only ones I can remember. The one by Chris Cornell is quite good.
