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 overseas, could it be the whole Earth opening wide
A sacred why, a mystery gaping inside
A week is 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

Earth's crystal tears, fall of snowflakes on your body
First time in years to drench your skin with lover's rosy stain
A chance to find the 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 the view to a kill

    This 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.

    This is the Best James Bond Theme song Ever

    I 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.

    This 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.

    Nothing 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.

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

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
