Top Ten Songs That Could Have Been James Bond Themes

The Top Ten

1 Desire - Yello Desire - Yello

It sounds so much like a Bond theme! - PositronWildhawk

I only voted because that's my favorite word- Desire... Oh and I love this song anyways

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 Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me - U2 Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me - U2

I know this song was the main song for "Batman Forever," but Bono's vocals and the lyrics perfectly match Bond, so it would be perfect for a 007 film. Although, in my opinion, the music doesn't match Bond that well, so if they eventually did use this song for a Bond movie, they could redo the music so it could fit better with Bond. That's just my opinion, so if you don't agree, take it with a tiny grain of salt.


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

4 Crystal - New Order
5 The Final Countdown - Europe

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

6 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 Supremacy - Muse

Sounds exactly like a James Bond theme that never became one...

Very Bond!

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

No one will take my SUPREMACY

8 Kiss From a Rose - Seal

I really like the idea of this. - Britgirl

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

9 Ceremony - New Order

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

10 Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst

The Contenders

11 Feeling Good - Michael Buble

Very Bond! Crossover between Craig and Connery

It is an amazing cover and I personally think it is better than the original song. Also, Michael Buble's strong voice and all the jazz music make it worth a bond theme.

Just watch the music video!

12 Fade In-Out - Oasis

The lyrics might fit one. - PositronWildhawk

13 Freedom - Beyoncé
14 A Woman Like Me - Beyonce
15 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

16 Welcome - Christina Aguilera
17 Sweet Victory - David Glen Eisley
18 Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5

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

19 Millennium - Robbie Williams
20 Destroyed by You - Vanilla Ninja
21 Silent Voices - Dionne Warwick
22 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
23 Love Is a Loosing Game - Amy Winehouse
24 In the Heat of the Night - Sandra
25 Shades of Cool - Lana Del Rey
26 Big Love - Fleetwood Mac
27 Flick of the Finger - Beady Eye

30 Mercy - Duffy

35 From This Moment On - Shania Twain
36 Alive - Jennifer Lopez
37 Warrior - Havana Brown
38 Masterpiece - Madonna
39 Stop for a Minute - Sandra
40 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

No this song would be terrible

41 Angel - Massive Attack
42 Fools Gold - The Stone Roses

I like this idea. It would all fall into context. - PositronWildhawk

43 Dominion/mother Russia - Sisters of Mercy
44 Cry Me a River - Michael Buble

After hearing the song, I know exactly why it's a good Bond theme.

Listen To It. Youll see why. Always thought it would make the best 007 theme

45 Baby - Justin Bieber

Get this awful song off this list. I don't want to see James Bond tainted by Bieber.

46 Hero - Skillet
47 Living Hell - Morcheeba

Has this James Bond theme vibe.

48 Angel of Death - Slayer
49 Storytime - Nightwish
50 Pieces of a Dream - Anastacia
