#1 – Paul McCartney & Wings – “Live and Let Die” – (1973)

Not only is this the best Bond theme, it’s one of Paul McCartney’s best solo (non-Beatles) songs. Or maybe you could throw the Beatles in there too; I think it would still stand. It’s awesome – on the radio and definitely live. Many people don’t know that this has any association with James Bond at all and it’s understandable – this is a powerhouse tune that gets a ton of airplay to this day. It definitely takes the award for longevity. It is amazing.
