Top 10 James Bond Theme Songs

2. “A View to a Kill” — Duran Duran

The sacred wine! The mystery opening wide! Or inside, maybe! I’m not looking these lyrics up! A chance to find the phoenix for the flame! Until we! Dance into the fire! …Who even knows what this song is about. Just know that it’s rad and that it’s the only Bond song to go to number one on the charts, and semi-deservedly so. …Also, for years I half-heartedly wondered why Duran Duran was named “Duran Duran,” in a wondering this idly every nine-months sort of way. The answer: they’re named after the bad guy from the movie  Barbarella. Which has nothing to do with anything, but hey. The More You Know.™
