Ranking the Best Bond Songs: #008



#008: "We Have All the Time in the World" by Louis Armstrong

One of the slowest title songs and the first to not have the movie title in it, "We Have All the Time in the World" may be one of the more romantic tunes in one of the more romantic films in the Bond series. Armstrong is a jazz legend and his gruff vocals balance perfectly with John Barry's beautiful orchestration.

Much like Casino Royale was, On Her Majesty's Secret Service is very different than any other Bond film. Diana Rigg plays Tracy Di Vicnezo, the only woman Bond has ever married. In the scene above, Tracy is murdered by his arch-nemesis Blofeld minutes after her wedding to Bond. It's a landmark moment in the series, hinted at briefly several times during the films that followed. Sean Connery supposedly gets Bond's revenge in Diamonds are Forever, but Roger Moore also faces off against Blofeld in For Your Eyes Only during the film's opening gambit shortly after visiting Tracy's grave.
