11 Things You Learn Rewatching A View To A Kill

11. The Title Song Is The Best Thing About It

A View To A Kill Titles

By far the best and most memorable thing about A View to a Kill is Duran Duran's Golden Globe-nominated title song, a killer tune that clearly deserved a far better movie.

It's still distinguished as the only Bond song to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard charts, and with damn good reason. It manages to be both a quintessential Bond tune and a distinctly 80s one at that, yet never veers into self-parody or gets too daft for its own good.

There's a real vibe of danger, sexiness and excitement to the guitars and Simon Le Bon's spirited vocal performance, ensuring that this isn't just one of the best songs from the Moore era, but the Bond franchise entirely.
