In celebration of the 50th anniversary of James Bond on film (hard to believe, isn’t it? Dr. No in 1962?), let’s reminisce about the memorable title songs for this film series. Can you name the song title and artist associated with each of the Bond movies?

1. Dr. No - Instrumental (kumabjorn)
2. From Russia With Love - Instrumental (pdurrant)
3. Goldfinger - Shirley Bassey (Kumabjorn)
4. Thunderball - Tom Jones (Kumabjorn)
5. You Only Live Twice - Nancy Sinatra (Kumabjorn)
6. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service - Instrumental (pdurrant)
"We Have All the Time in the World" - Louis Armstrong (orlok)
7. Diamonds Are Forever - Shirley Bassey (Bilbo1967)
8. Live And Let Die - Paul McCartney & Wings (Kumabjorn)
9. The Man With The Golden Gun
10. The Spy Who Loved Me - "Nobody Does It Better" - Carly Simon (fbone)
11. Moonraker - Shirley Bassey (kumabjorn)
12. For Your Eyes Only - Sheena Easton (kumabjorn)
13. Octopussy - "All Time High" - Rita Coolidge (fbone)
14. A View To A Kill - Duran Duran (kumabjorn)
15. The Living Daylights - A-ha (Bilbo1967)
16. Licence To Kill - Gladys Knight (orlok)
17. Golden Eye
18. Tomorrow Never Dies - Sheryl Crowe (fbone)
19. The World Is Not Enough
20. Die Another Day - Madonna (Bilbo1967)
21. Casino Royale - "You Know My Name" by Chris Cornell (orlok)
22. Quantum of Solace - "Another Way to Die" by Jack White & Alicia Keys (orlok)
23. Skyfall - Adele (kumabjorn)

Note: If the theme song title is the same as the movie title, I did not repeat it as an answer -- to keep it uncluttered.

Come to think of it I believe Shirley Bassey also did Moonraker.

Allow me to skate a little on thin ice. I believe that Dr. No had the melody (no lyrics) that we today would probably call the 007 Theme. I want to look it up on Youtube and insert it, but I'm not sure if that would be a violation of the rules. It is the music played when Bond comes into focus of a camera shutter, turns around and fires, then blood starts to flow down over the lens. I can't really explain it any other way.

I know that the early scores were by John Barry. Was perhaps Goldfinger the first song (ie lyrics)?
I think Nancy Sinatra and Tom Jones sang on some of the early Bond movies, I just can't recall which they did? Perhaps a duet?

Living Daylights - A-Ha
Die Another Day - Madonna (she also appeared in the film, it was on TV here not that long ago).

You are quite right about the John Barry theme.

Nancy Sinatra & Tom Jones both sang theme songs - but on different films.
