July 13, 1985, Duran Duran became the first band to have a No.1 on the US singles chart with a James Bond theme when 'A View To A Kill' went to the top of the charts.

James Bond movie theme songs have had numerous signature tracks over the years, many of which are now considered classic pieces of film music.

Eon Productions (an abbreviation of Everything or Nothing), the British film production company that produces the James Bond film series, paid much attention to the themes song since Dr. No, released in 1962.

The "James Bond Theme" is the main signature theme of the James Bond films and has been used as an accompanying fanfare to the gun barrel sequence in almost every James Bond film.

Each James Bond is marked by its own track that becomes more and more familiar to us, each Bond and its soundtrack is like a combo that you cannot figure out individually considered.

Many songs have also become identified with the series, for example the instrumental piece "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", and various songs, such as Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger", Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die" or Carly Simon's "Nobody Does It Better", Sheena Easton's "For Your Eyes Only" .
