    What do you think is the greatest James Bond Theme?

    For me it's a tie between this:

    Probably either Diamonds Are Forever or Goldfinger.

    (although I think this says more about my musical preferences than the relative merits of the Bond themes...)

    Goldfinger narrowly over Live and Let Die. For Your Eyes Only comes in as my third pick.

    You Only Live Twice (good enough for Robbie Williams to plunder)

    Live and Let Die (great booming performance at the Academy Awards)

    You only live twice, for me.
    There's been some great ones and some recent shockers.

    Little known fact: Muse were asked to do the last theme song, but could not fit it into their scheduling.

    1. Tom Jones - Thunderball
    2. Nancy Sinatra - You Only Live Twice
    3. Shirley Bassey - Goldfinger

    There is an alternate version of You Only Live Twice where the guitars are more prominent, which I think is better than the version most people are familiar with.
