"A View To A Kill" as written by Roger Andrew Taylor, Andy Taylor, John Taylor, Nick Rhodes, Simon Le Bon and John Barry....
Meeting you, with a view to a kill,
Face to face, in secret places. Feel the chill.
Nightfall covers me,
But you know, the plans I'm making
Still over see.
Could it be the whole earth opening wide
A sacred why? A myst'ry gaping inside
The weekends; why? Until we

Dance into the fire,
That fatal kiss is all we need.
Dance into the fire
To fatal sounds of broken dreams.
Dance into the fire;
That fatal kiss is all we need.
Dance into the fire.

The choice for you is the view to a kill.
Between the shades, assassination standing still.
The first crystal tears
Fall as snowflakes on your body,
First time in years,
To drench your skin with lover's rosy stain.
A chance to find a phoenix for the flame,
A chance to die, but can we

Dance into the fire,
That fatal kiss is all we need.
Dance into the fire
To fatal sounds of broken dreams.
Dance into the fire;
That fatal kiss is all we need.
Dance into the fire,
When all we see is a view to a kill.

    General CommentThis song always makes me think of the cold. Like stepping out on a January morning and the 15 degree air punches you in the face cold.

    General CommentThis is the best Bond theme I've heard. Though I also liked Goldeneye.

    I read somewhere that the lead singer referred to this song as something along the lines of "fatal attraction", to use the cliche, not in regards to the movie.

    General CommentI like the songs by Garbage, Tina Turner, Nancy Sinatra, Shirley Bassey (x2), and hell, even the one by Rita Coolidge (All Time High from Octopussy). The problem is, what metric are we going by when we define the best Bond song? The one that exemplifies what Bond was about? Or the best song period? No one can even agree on which Bond was better -- the goofy/campy Moore, serious Dalton, neutered Brosnan, or classic Connery. No need to bust on any particular song. Let's just talk about each song in its own context.

    It's energetic, with classic Bond brass stabs (though synth-generated). What a contrast to the previous Coolidge song, which was a light music snorefest (although it did match its own movie)! Bassline and thumping percussion help move it along. I agree with Kez, it's 80's New Romantic, with overtones of secret agents. A perfect fit to the movie. Come on, it had Walken in it! AND Grace Jones.

    General CommentNothing beats "For Your Eyes Only" as the best James Bond song (IMO). It captured the essence of Greece, featured prominently in the movie. Amazing song.

    General CommentI disagree with you Maddog. I think 'Live and Let Die' is better. But you are entitled to your opinion.
