2Take California - Propellerheads

Propellerheads have proved before with their remix of On Her Majesty's Secret Service that they had the right material for it. Add vocals to Take California and you have it! - PositronWildhawk

3Crystal - New Order
4Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me - U2

Agreed with this as soon as I saw it. Could actually visualise James Bond in the title credits. And it's quite a powerful song. Also like the idea of Kiss from A Rose.
Brilliant list, PositronWildhawk! - Britgirl

5The Final Countdown - Europe

I don't know why it wouldn't be. - PositronWildhawk

6Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

I never liked Moonraker. But at least it would have an amazing song if this was it. - IronSabbathPriest

Not what you'd think of as a Bond theme, but it sounds so much like one. - PositronWildhawk

7Ceremony - New Order

OK, now you think I've flipped my lid. But I think it would be good, and that's that. - PositronWildhawk

8Supremacy - Muse

Screw Skyfall, this was the Bond theme of 2012 for me.

Soon after I made this list, I Googled songs that could be Bond themes, and Muse was a popular choice. - PositronWildhawk

9Kiss From a Rose - Seal

BABY! I could compare you from a kiss from a rose! - JaysTop10List

10Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst

The Contenders

11Fade In-Out - Oasis

The lyrics might fit one. - PositronWildhawk

12Freedom - Beyoncé
13A Woman Like Me - Beyonce
14The Juvenile - Ace of Base

This song was originally written in 1995, as the proposed theme song to the 1995 James Bond film GoldenEye, but Arista Records pulled the band out of the project. Too bad, 'The Juvenile' is a very cool song. It would be a great Bond Theme - Irina2932

15Millennium - Robbie Williams
16Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5

Alter the lyrics slightly, but it could well be up there. - PositronWildhawk

17Destroyed by You - Vanilla Ninja
18Silent Voices - Dionne Warwick
19Welcome - Christina Aguilera
20Sweet Victory - David Glen Eisley
