Top Ten Songs That Could Have Been James Bond Themes


The Top Ten

1 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

2 Crystal - New Order
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. - 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

4 The Final Countdown - Europe

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

5 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

6 Ceremony - New Order

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

7 Kiss From a Rose - Seal

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

8 Supremacy - Muse

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

No one will take my SUPREMACY

Soon after I made this list, I Googled songs that could be Bond themes, and Muse was a popular choice. - PositronWildhawk

9 Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst
10 Fade In-Out - Oasis

The lyrics might fit one. - PositronWildhawk

The Newcomers

? 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

The Contenders

11 A Woman Like Me - Beyonce
12 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!

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 Welcome - Christina Aguilera
16 Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5

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

17 Millennium - Robbie Williams
18 Destroyed by You - Vanilla Ninja
19 Silent Voices - Dionne Warwick
20 Sweet Victory - David Glen Eisley
21 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
22 Love Is a Loosing Game - Amy Winehouse
23 Big Love - Fleetwood Mac
24 Flick of the Finger - Beady Eye
25 The Only Way Is Up - Yazz
26 Send Me an Angel - Scorpions
27 Mercy - Duffy
28 Love In the Key of C - Belinda Carlisle
29 Original Sin - Taylor Dayne
30 Whatever You Want - Tina Turner

34 Warrior - Havana Brown
35 Masterpiece - Madonna
36 In the Heat of the Night - Sandra
37 Stop for a Minute - Sandra
38 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

No this song would be terrible

39 Angel - Massive Attack
40 Fools Gold - The Stone Roses

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

41 Dominion/mother Russia - Sisters of Mercy
42 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

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