Thursday Music

With the upcoming Bond film many discussions are centered around the mythos that is the British secret agent. More than 20 films have been released which surprises me at times when I think about it. I know a lot about the series, but I only like three of the films.

No none of the movies I like star Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnan. I have taste after all.

Bond girls are of course a big draw to the series. My personal favorites have been Tatiana, Vesper, and of course Honey Ryder. Everyone has the one that caught their eye though. Many mention Solitaire, Jill Masterson, and Holly Goodhead, but that's okay. They have a right to be wrong.

With all the talk about favorite films, actors, and Bond girls no one seems to mention their favorite music. This is mostly due to the fact that most, if not all, Bond opening songs suck hard. That being said some of the themes do work quite well.

Today dear readers I bring you one of my favorite Bond themes from 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service':



As a bonus I'll add in one of the greatest scenes from the series ever:



"There are women who take it to the wire. That's what they are looking for, the ultimate confrontation. They want a smack." - Sean Connery

As a woman I only watch Bond films for the men. Sean Connery, yesterday, today and tomorrow ... Yummy! So, he can smack my butt anytime he likes ... lucky girl!! As for the song it reminds me of Pink Elephants from Dumbo or something out of Fantasia.

I never liked the Bond films. Too, how do you say, cheesy.

Favourite Bond girl, either Carey Lowell or Priscilla Barnes. Don't ask me which movies or what they're names where. I don't care. I just think they're were both smokin' hot.

Favourite Bond theme, Goldeneye. I'm Italian. I have an unnatural affinity towards Tina Turner. Can't explain it. Must be something in the tomato sauce.

Best Bond girls: Honey Rider (Ursula Andress) and Xenia Onnatop (Famke Jansen).

Gotta agree with Honey Rider. Worst bond girl - Denise Richards, just awful.

Only Sean Connery can get away with acting like that. lol

I agree with on the the sucking theme songs. It is funny how much marketing there is on the theme songs. When a Bond movie releases the first two questions always ask is who the Bond girl is and what does the theme song sound like.
