Typically, major music stars are recruited to sing the James Bond film these songs, and in 2012, Adele's song "Skyfall," from the Bond movie of the same name, was released. Adele is just one of the heavy hitting singers chosen to sing the title James Bond song. Others include Carly Simon ("Nobody Does It Better," from 1977's The Spy Who Loved Me), Rita Coolidge ("All Time High" from 1983's Octopussy) and of course, the incomparable Shirley Bassey, who sang three James Bond Movie theme songs (for Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, and Moonraker).
Here's the thing: It's totally okay to love a James Bond theme song from some of the best rock bands of all time, even if you didn't particularly love the movie. When you vote, be sure to consider the actual song, not just the film as a whole.
