Bond: Good themes are forever, they are all I need to please me...

My 'The Best of Bond' CD died for Queen and country. Sung along to with abandon, played to destruction, it died nobly. But few recent Bond songs have come close to the high points (and notes) of Shirley Bassey's bests ("Diamonds are Forever"! "Moonraker"!) or Lulu's subtle way with a lyric ("He has a powerful WEAPON, he charges a million a SHOT").
