More Music In The Key Of Bond

Last week I posted some movie posters from the James Bond films of Roger Moore. Here are the opening title sequences for those films. There were some really good Bond theme songs during the Moore era. Which of these do you like the best?

Live And Let Die (1973)



The Man With The Golden Gun (1974)



The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)



Moonraker (1979)



For Your Eyes Only (1981)



Octopussy (1983)



A View To A Kill (1985)

Hello, Keith. Thank you for your comment on my blog. I want to tell you, I've posted something, you might find interesting in my answer on my blog. When talking about the Roger Moore movies, The View to Kill would be my most favorite song. The close second would probably be the Spy Who loved Me. Have a nice day!

Keith said...

Hey Sinn. Thanks. You want to add my blog to your blog links? Sure thing. I'll add you to mine too.

Keith said...

Hey Meraldia. That is such a good one.

Hey Choo. Thanks.

Great music - always dig the John Barry background scores too!

clarewbrown said...

All of these songs are awesome! I loved The World is Not Enough, from the newer James Bond film, but the Spy who Loved Me is my fav. from this time period!

Have a swinging day, Keith!

Drake said...

Always have a soft spot for Live and Let Die, but all the Bond themes are great. :)

Maria Confer said...

Awesome. Ha, I would have to say The Spy Who Loved Me is my fave.

Hey Dad. Nothing wrong with that. I always had a crush on Sheena. Plus FYEO was my first Bond movie.

Amy said...

Oh a view to a kill? my goodness that came out in the mid 80's and I loved it because Duran Duran did the sountrack back then LOL

Dustjacket Attic said...

Oh this was hard, I think live and let die song was great, I like A view to a Kill as well. They all represent their era's so well.

I can feel a bond movie marathon coming on :) My brother has the lot so I'm set.
xx

Protege said...

I love *For your eyes only* and *View to a kill*.;)
Thank you for your always kind comments at my place.;)

Mondo said...

Lovely stuff Keith. One of my fave pieces is the disco rework of the Bond theme used on The Spy Who Loved Me

Keith said...

Hey Amy. Thanks. I always loved A View To A Kill. It was a cool song. Plus Duran Duran was awesome.

Keith said...

Hey Dustjacket. Thanks. Yeah, I think all the songs represent well the era in which the movies came out. I definitely hope you get that marathon going. That would be cool.

Keith said...

Hey Protege. Thanks. I love both of those myself. You are very welcome. I always enjoy your latest posts.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks. That's very cool. Glad you've been enjoying my Bond posts.

Maggi said...

I love Bond openings. I may have not seen all of the movies but the opening themes are too groovy! lol

Keith said...

Hey Maggi. Thanks. The intros are definitely a highlight of each movie.

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

I love the songs "Nobody Does It Better" and "For Your Eyes Only."

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. Those are both amazing songs. I love them too.

Ela said...

I've yet to see all of these, must make time to.
Thank you for your warm comments, Keith. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead :)

Wolf Boy said...

I love Live and Let Die. GNR's version of that song is really killer.

Keith said...

Hey Ela. Thanks. I hope you get a chance to see these. They are some really awesome movies. There's so much to love about them.

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. Thanks. That's my sister's favorite Bond theme song. Plus she loves GNR's cover too. She's a huge fan of the band.

Shopaholic said...

I loved looking through these.
Roger Moore is on a TV advert at the moment in the UK, for the Post Office. He looks very old unfortunately... these bring back great memories...
I loved him in The Persuaders with Tony Curtis too... brilliant series.

Keith said...

Hey Shop. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed these. I didn't know about that commercial. That's so cool. I wonder if it's on YouTube or not. Yeah, he is showing his age.

Nice nice to meet you!

Agneta

Keith said...

Hey Agneta. Thank you. I'm just getting ready to put up my next post before I head off to bed.

The Man Who Knew Too Much said...

James Bond themes are just always incredibly produced and composed!

Jessica Cangiano said...

Great songs, each one has the ability to weave into your head and stay there for ages :)

I'd have to say I like The Man with the Golden Gun the best from this selection. Octopussy was actually on TV on Sunday night, I didn't watch it all though, just the first bit, as we were waiting for (the new episode of) Simpsons to start. However now I've got that theme song rattling around in the ol' brain ;D


Wishing you a wonderful day!
♥ Jessica

Keith said...

Hey Man. Thanks for commenting. You are so right about that.

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks for commenting. Each of these really add to the movie they are a part of. They fit in so well. I love these songs. I'll hum these for days. I know that it's not hard to find a Bond movie on tv.
