Top Ten Songs That Could Have Been James Bond Themes

The Top Ten
1 Desire - Yello Desire - Yello Cover Art

It sounds so much like a Bond theme!

2 Take California - Propellerheads Take California - Propellerheads Cover Art

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!

3 Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me - U2 Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me - U2 Cover Art

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!

4 Crystal - New Order Crystal - New Order Cover Art
5 The Final Countdown - Europe The Final Countdown - Europe Cover Art

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

6 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

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.

7 Supremacy - Muse Supremacy - Muse Cover Art

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.

8 Kiss From a Rose - Seal Kiss From a Rose - Seal Cover Art

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

I really like the idea of this.

9 Ceremony - New Order Ceremony - New Order Cover Art

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

10 Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Feeling Good - Michael Buble Feeling Good - Michael Buble Cover Art

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.

12 Fade In-Out - Oasis Fade In-Out - Oasis Cover Art

The lyrics might fit one.

13 Freedom - Beyoncé Freedom - Beyoncé Cover Art
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

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

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

19 Millennium - Robbie Williams Millennium - Robbie Williams Cover Art
20 Destroyed by You - Vanilla Ninja
21 Silent Voices - Dionne Warwick Silent Voices - Dionne Warwick Cover Art
22 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler Cover Art
23 Love Is a Loosing Game - Amy Winehouse
24 Shades of Cool - Lana Del Rey Shades of Cool - Lana Del Rey Cover Art
25 In the Heat of the Night - Sandra In the Heat of the Night - Sandra Cover Art
