The Motion Sick: James Bond Theme Songs

Some interesting notes about James Bond themes Full table and much info stolen
from Wikipedia:

Apart from the first film, Dr. No, which introduced the James Bond Theme (and
was also the only film to use two songs during the opening sequence), only 3
films have had theme songs with titles differing from the title of the film:

“Nobody Does It Better” – Carly Simon – The Spy Who Loved Me “All Time High”
– Rita Coolidge – Octopussy “You Know My Name” – Chris Cornell – Casino Royale

Duran Duran and John Barry’s “A View To A Kill” topped the singles charts in
America and was the only Bond theme to hit #1.  “Live and Let Die” reached #2
on the US Singles Chart. Sheena Easton’s performance of Bill Conti’s “For Your
Eyes Only” received an Academy Award nomination for Best Song Madonna’s theme
for “Die Another Day” was nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Original
Song (2002) in addition to a Golden Globe for Best Original Song. Only three
films had instrumental themes: Dr. No (excluding the second song used in the
opening sequence), From Russia with Love (a vocal version of the song was used
in the closing credits), and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

Shirley Bassey, who is Welsh, has performed the most Bond themes – Goldfinger,
Diamonds Are Forever, and Moonraker. Bassey also recorded her own version of
“Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” for Thunderball, but her version was replaced by Dionne
Warwick’s rendition.
