There is hardly a James Bond soundtrack that I don’t like.

I love the theme of the ascending fourth chromatically going up and down the scale to create a very signature sound for the Bond franchise.

In fact, there are really only two franchises that have done this.
One is Mission Impossible and the other is James Bond.
Both have kept the integrity of that theme while morphing the chord progression and melodies over the decades. Both have maintained the original theme in such a way that it’s always recognizable while being quite unique.

Here is a list of all 25 artists that have recorded the James Bond theme starting in 1962, a year before I was born:
1962 Dr. No – James Bond Theme – Composed by Monty Norman, arranged by John Barry
1963 James Bond Theme John Barry Orchestra (From Russia With Love Matt Monro)
1964 Goldfinger Shirley Bassey
1965 Thunderball Tom Jones
1967 You Only Live Twice Nancy Sinatra
1969 We Have All The Time in the World Louis Armstrong
1971 Diamonds are Forever Shirley Bassey
1973 Live and Let Die Paul McCartney & Wings
1975 The Man With The Golden Gun Lulu
1977 Nobody Does It Better Carly Simon
1979 Moonraker Shirley Basseyn
1981 For Your Eyes Only Sheena Easton
1983 All Time High Rita Coolidge
1985 A View To A Kill Duran Duran
1987 The Living Daylights A-ha
1989 License To Kill Gladys Knight
1995 GoldenEye Tina Turner
1997 Tomorrow Never Dies Sheryl Crow
1999 The World Is Not Enough Garbage
2002 Die Another Day Madonna
2006 You Know My Name Chris Cornell
2008 Another Way To Die Alicia Keys & Jack White
2012 Skyfall Adele
2015 Writing’s On The Wall Sam Smith
2020 No Time To Die Billie Eilish

And while we did a version of Billie Eilish “No Time To Die” and I have done a version of Chris Cornell’s “You know my name” (as did Gabriela), Gabriela took her stab at Skyfall!

Let us know how you think we did and tell us which is your favorite James Bond theme?
