The Best of Bond: James Bond Original Motion Picture Soundtrack CD

Just as James Bond has evolved over time, so have the films’ memorable themes. ‘The Best Of Bond… James Bond’ collects an impressive selection of classic and contemporary Bond themes by many of popular music’s top stars, including Paul McCartney and Wings’ “Live & Let Die,” Madonna’s “Die Another Day,” Duran Duran’s chart-topping “A View To A Kill,” Shirley Bassey’s “Goldfinger,” Tina Turner’s “GoldenEye,” kd lang’s “Surrender,” Sheryl Crow’s “Tomorrow Never Dies,” Chris Cornell’s “You Know My Name,” Carly Simon’s “Nobody Does It Better,” and Tom Jones’ “Thunderball,” among many others. John Arnold’s previously unreleased “James Bond Theme” closes the collection

James Bond themes tend to be just as memorable as their movie counterparts and, to a certain extent, just as time sensitive. While many fans can remember the Monty Norman Orchestra's steamy Dr. No theme or Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger," how many of US remember Rita Coolidge's dated "All Time High" from Octopussy or A-Ha's theme from the Living Daylights? Yes, just as we all have our favorite Bonds, we all have our favorite eras of Bond movie music.

But surprisingly, whether they're New Wave, soul, or just Euro- pop inspired, most are still worth hearing. There are some real gems on this compilation: On Her Majesty's Secret Service's "We Have All the Time in the World" by Louis Armstrong, the Thunderball theme sung by Tom Jones, and the spunky theme to the Man with the Golden Gun by Lulu. Just overlook those sporadic lean years and you have a pretty stiff soundtrack cocktail here.
