The Top Ten

1 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

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

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

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

12 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!

13 Freedom - Beyoncé UListen to Sample
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
