With the release of Adele's "Skyfall," we thought it'd be fun to revisit other classic James Bond themes. Surely you remember the bigger names of more recent years – Jack White's "Another Way to Die" and Tina Turner's "Goldeneye" come to mind – but did you know/remember a-ha's contribution to the Bond canon, "The Living Daylights"? Us neither. Other notable artists who have contributed tracks include Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Nancy Sinatra, Garbage and more.

To celebrate "Skyfall," we've compiled the Official James Bond Theme Song playlist below. And yes, they all sound better while wearing a tuxedo and drinking a shaken, not stirred, martini. Enjoy.
