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 Crystal - New Order
4 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. - stinkyjaden

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

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 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

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

9 Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst
10 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 Fade In-Out - Oasis V 1 Comment
12 A Woman Like Me - Beyonce
13 Freedom - Beyoncé
14 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

15 Feeling Good - Michael Buble

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!

16 Welcome - Christina Aguilera
17 Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5

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

18 Millennium - Robbie Williams
19 Destroyed by You - Vanilla Ninja
20 Silent Voices - Dionne Warwick
