2 Take California - Propellerheads Take 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

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

5 The Final Countdown - Europe The Final Countdown - Europe

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

6 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd Comfortably 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

7 Ceremony - New Order Ceremony - New Order

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

8 Kiss From a Rose - Seal Kiss From a Rose - Seal

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

9 Fade In-Out - Oasis Fade In-Out - Oasis V 1 Comment
10 Freedom - Beyoncé Freedom - Beyoncé

The Newcomers

? Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst
? Supremacy - Muse Supremacy - 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

The Contenders

11 A Woman Like Me - Beyonce
12 The Juvenile - Ace of Base The 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

13 Millennium - Robbie Williams Millennium - Robbie Williams
14 Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5 Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5

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

15 Destroyed by You - Vanilla Ninja
16 Silent Voices - Dionne Warwick Silent Voices - Dionne Warwick
17 Welcome - Christina Aguilera Welcome - Christina Aguilera
18 Sweet Victory - David Glen Eisley Sweet Victory - David Glen Eisley
19 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
20 Love Is a Loosing Game - Amy Winehouse Love Is a Loosing Game - Amy Winehouse
