......A View To A Kill by Duran Duran. Already a bona fide phenomenon in the US by 1985, Duran Duran were a no-brainer to ask when it came to composing the theme to the James Bond film A View To A Kill. Their flare for the dramatic and intense popularity certainly qualified them. Together with composer John Barry, who was the composer of 11 Bond soundtracks, the band set out on the path to build one of the most successful Bond themes of all time and the ONLY Bond theme to ever reach #1 in the United States!!! Can you believe that? Well, it's true, so believe it. The song hit #1 on the US Hot 100 on July 13, 1985 and stayed for two weeks. The great thing about A View To A Kill is that it retained so much of Duran Duran's signature sound while incorporating the unmistakable feel of a Bond theme, thanks to the input of John Barry. Anyway, here is the classic Bond theme and #1 song from 30 years ago today, A View To A Kill. Enjoy!
