Only got no.3!.....Kev's distracting me by poncing around the room, listening to Whitesnake and doing bad 80's rock air-guitar whilst singing out of tune.
Wanker.

Oh John-G you have just proved what a crap memory I have. Pop music was never my thing but James Bond: I read all the books and saw all the films but couldn't tell you who sang which theme. In fact, I can't even think of most of the theme tunes. (Slinks away despondently. . . . . . .)

1 - Shirley Bassey
2- Matt Monro
9 - Carly Simon

Z said...

18 - On her Majesty's secret Service was 'We have all the time in the world' by Louis Armstrong.

Sheryl Crow sang one, but I don't know which.

john.g. said...

Z, wrong! That song was in the film, but not the theme song. Nasty one this!

Z said...

Ah. Then I'll have to ponder some more.

I remember at the start of Dr No there were three silhouette men and 'Three Blind Mice' was being sung with a calypso (I think) beat, but I've no idea who sang it.

I'm supposed to be working and this is most distracting!

Z said...

I don't think there were words to the theme of OHMSS. Wasn't it an instrumental theme tune?

john.g. said...

Z,Correct. xx

Z said...

*click* (the sound of loins being regirded)

15 must be Sheryl Crow because the others are too early. Was 13 Gladys Knight?

Was Dr No the first use of the James Bond theme, and so it didn't have an actual title track?

john.g. said...

Z, yes and yes.

I don't know Octopussy. You've beaten me, John.

How can you now know 'Pussy'? - Rita was so cool - it's my favourite, the pussy bit (although I was pissed off that someone got Morten & the gang - I was going to comment in a very Norwegian way about that one)....

SpanishGoth said...

Fuck - that was supposed to say 'not know'

john.g. said...

Goth, lol!

john.g. said...

Z, Apart from getting 11 and 12 the wrong way round, and missing Rita Coolidge......You win!!

PI said...

I knew the Shirley's and the Matt Monroe and my step-son know a lot but that seemed like cheating and I reckon Z's probably done it.
Incidentally MTL is a great Bond fan of which I heartily disapprove.

john.g. said...

Mum2, why? Jealous of him leching? Fear not, you would make a great Bond girl!

PI said...

I'll bet you say that to all the girls.

I thought they were all Shirley Bassey except the Sheena Easton one ;-)
