Top Ten Songs That Could Have Been James Bond Themes
It sounds so much like a Bond theme!
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!
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!
I don't know why it wouldn't be.
I never liked Moonraker. But at least it would have an amazing song if this was it.
Not what you'd think of as a Bond theme, but it sounds so much like one.
Soon after I made this list, I Googled songs that could be Bond themes, and Muse was a popular choice.
James Bond and Muse? Didn't think it was possible, but it's happened!
Sounds exactly like a James Bond theme that never became one...
Screw Skyfall, this was the Bond theme of 2012 for me.
BABY! I could compare you from a kiss from a rose!
I really like the idea of this.
OK, now you think I've flipped my lid. But I think it would be good, and that's that.
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!
Oh yes, so sexy, so Bond.
The lyrics might fit one.
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
Alter the lyrics slightly, but it could well be up there.
