MD Poll: Goldfingered

Largely regarded as the best Bond movie of them all, Goldfinger also features the best Bond song, at least as far as Movie Dearest readers are concerned. The Shirley Bassey title tune easily topped the most recent MD Poll with an even 25% of the votes.

The real battle was for second place, with Chris Cornell's "You Know My Name" and Paul McCartney and Wings' "Live and Let Die" duking it out in a near tie, with the Casino Royale tune eventually triumphing by only 2%. Most interesting is the fact that two songs — "Thunderball" and "The Living Daylights" — received no votes at all; maybe I should have included "Moonraker" after all ...

For the full run down of the stats for this poll, see the comments section below. And stay tuned for the next MD Poll, to be posted shortly.

  2. Meh, Goldfinger is an OK movie. It's certainly sandwiched between two inferior entries, but that hardly makes it superior. Call me odd if you want, but I love "The World Is Not Enough," great Bond, great song, great villainess (and hot villain).
