Ugh, I went with You Know my Name, but could have voted for a number of other ones. Very, very tough poll question.

I love YOLT, OHMSS (both), TB, GE, LALD and, yes, TLD.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Hum. It's an okay song, but I'd put all the others you listed above it, as well as Another Way to Die and The Spy who Loved Me.

I think the only one I'm not a fan of is Die Another Day...and I like Madonna. I strangely enough just compiled a playlist of all the titles (two from Dr. No and two from From Russia), so I'll go back and listen before casting a proper vote. Pretty sure I'll go with Nobody Does It Better, though.

I'm in the same boat, hers is the only one I really dislike. From the rest even the lesser ones are decent enough but Madonna's just didn't feel very Bond-ish.

Favourite is hard to say. I love Shirley Bassey, my friends band does a rocking cover of Live and Let Die and Nobody does it better has worked it's way into my pregame soccer playlist to pump up my ego. I gotta go with Duran Duran though even if it is one of the worst flicks in the series.

So Adele lands at #7 right above Garbage... and I love almost anything by Garbage.

I thought Skyfall was a pretty terrible song.

Agreed. I did like it more after seeing how it played into the opening credit sequence, but still. I didn't really go for it.

It is a toss up between Goldfinger and Live and Let Die. For now going with Goldfinger.
