Ok. So I still haven’t edited my videos from the Stevie Wonder Concert this past Tuesday. I’ve been trying to edit them after work, but just too darn tired to stay up too much later than usual. I think I’m getting old…jeez.
Anyway, I also too tired tonight to do anymore editing, so I’m surfing the net and watching some tv while eating some chinese takeout.
I’m off work tomorrow so I figure I’d just edit the videos tomorrow.
Right now though, I’m watching Pierce Brosonan in Goldeneye. For some reason I’ve been watching Bond movies since last week. Apparently one of the cable movie nets is having a #BondCollection movie month. So last weekend I watched Skyfall. I mean, I own all the Craig Bond movies on BluRay, yet I still watched the movie on tv.
Anyway, watching Goldeneye and listening to Tina Turner singing the song for Goldeneye, written by Bond and The Edge, which I never really knew. It got me to thinking that of the post Connery & Moore Bond films, Tina Turner and Goldeneye has the most pleasing to the ear sound and “classic” Bond sexiness? The only other 2 I can remember Garbage and the last Adele song for “Skyfall”.
So I found myself wanting to rank the top 10 Bond Theme Songs. I found this handy, dandy list from WashPo (the some of the videos are no longer on YouTube, but the ranking’s sound). I’d totally agree that Shirley Bassey’s “Goldfinger is definitely #1. I actually agree with the top 4 except I would have Duran Duran higher than Carly Simon..
Here’s the link to that listing:

Now for today’s poll: Sexiest James Bond
So who’s your favorite Bond and who would you like to be the next Bond after Daniel Craig. If you know me, then you already know who I’m rooting for!
3 thoughts on “Bond…James Bond! Top Ten Theme Songs and Favorite Bond…”
1. Sean Connery – he was the first. He was the reason I fell for the franchise. I remember seeing the Bond movies on tv when I was a kid-loved him.
2. Daniel Craig – for his physicalness, and because his Bond is so dark.
2.00000001- Pierce Brosnan -there never should have been a Timothy Dalton as Bond because it always should have been Pierce.
3. Roger Moore- only because of Live and Let Die – one of the best songs, and best villains and Geoffery Holder….
4. Roger Lazenby.
I can’t even put Dalton on the list.
