The Best James Bond Movie Theme Songs

List Criteria: Title theme songs from James Bond films

The best James Bond theme songs manage to blend perfectly with the Bond movie's opening credits (the title sequence). For Bond fans, the title sequence is extremely important, as it sets the theme of the entire film. This list includes most of the major theme songs from 007 movies, dating back to the 1960s, along with the artists and the movie titles (if they are different than the song titles). From the originals to the remixes from the famous djs around the world. Some of these 007 theme songs are great, and some are not great -- but which one is the best? That's up to you to decide, with your votes!

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 'Octop***y') and of course, the incomparable Shirley Bassey, who sang three James Bond Movie theme songs ('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.

Are you a 007 movie fanatic? If so, check out these lists of the hottest James Bond babes, the best James Bond cars and of course, the best James Bond movies of all-time. Enjoy!
