James Bond Trivia Questions

1. Which singer is the first person to sing more than one James Bond theme song?

From Quiz
James Bond Theme Songs

Answer: Shirley Bassey

Shirley Bassey sang "Goldfinger", "Diamonds Are Forever" and "Moonraker". "Goldfinger" reached No 21 in the UK Top 40, and "Diamonds Are Forever" reached No 38. Unfortunately "Moonraker" never made the UK charts. Shirley Bassey was made a Dame in 2000 for services to the performing arts.

2. To the strains of which 1964 song, titled the same as the film, does Sean Connery dash over the screen to chase down a smuggler?

From Quiz All You Need is a Song

Answer: Goldfinger

A haunting piece about "the man with the Midas touch", "Goldfinger" turned out to be a huge success for the singer, Shirley Bassey. Despite only gaining #21 in the United Kingdom, it reached number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 list, becoming Bassey's first and only song to do so. Welsh singer Dame Shirley Bassey enjoyed much success with her three Bond themes "Goldfinger", "Diamonds Are Forever", and "Moonraker". However, she came to fame before singing the songs, and particularly in Europe she is known for hits such as "Big Spender", "Something", and "I Am What I Am".

3. Who wrote the James Bond theme song?

From Quiz James Bond Theme Songs

Answer: John Barry and Monty Norman

John Barry and Monty Norman wrote the original "James Bond Theme", first heard in "Dr. No".

4. Who sang possibly the most memorable Bond song, 'Goldfinger'?

From Quiz 'James Bond' Soundtracks

Answer: Shirley Bassey & Bassey

'Goldfinger' was the third 'James Bond' film, released in 1964 and starred Sean Connery as the infamous "Bond, James Bond".

5. In the first James Bond film, "Dr No", the opening credits were accompanied by a calypso version of which childrens song?

From Quiz The James Bond Music

Answer: Three Blind Mice

The three blind "mice" in this case were professional hit-men.

6. Though she would record several James Bond theme songs, what Welsh singer kicked off her run with "Goldfinger" in 1964?

From Quiz Singers of James Bond Theme Songs

Answer: Shirley Bassey

The third James Bond movie to release, appearing in theatres in 1964, "Goldfinger" set the standard for songs with Shirley Bassey's opening theme. The song was so iconic that Shirley Bassey returned to sing the theme for "Diamonds Are Forever" eight years later (in 1973) and "Moonraker", once more, in 1979. "Goldfinger" was by far the most popular and, for all it was, a dramatic influence on all Bond themes going forward. It would be the top-charting track of the series' early days.

7. Who, along with Michael Leeson composed the theme song to "For Your Eyes Only"?

From Quiz James Bond Theme Songs

Answer: Bill Conti

Sheena Easton who sang the theme song to "For Your Eyes Only" came to fame on the BBC show "The Big Time". Bill Conti, who co-wrote the theme song to "For Your Eyes Only" also wrote "Gonna Fly Now" for the film Rocky starring Sylvester Stallone.

8. YOLO...or not. 007 returns to prove that he lives twice in the aptly named Bond film "You Only Live Twice", with the theme song sung by which member of the famous Sinatra family?

From Quiz All You Need is a Song

Answer: Nancy Sinatra

"You Only Live Twice" by Nancy Sinatra tells you that you live twice, once for yourself and once for your dreams, in a more upbeat Bond theme with recognizable lyrics. The song merely reached number forty-four on the Billboard Hot 100 list in 1967, yet proved to be one of Nancy's bigger hits. "You Only Live Twice" is also well known for the many cover versions by notable artists such as Soft Cell, Coldplay, Shirley Bassey, and Cee-Lo Green. The eldest daughter of Frank Sinatra, Nancy naturally went into music, and had several hits aside from "You Only Live Twice". They include her most famous, "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'", her duet with her father entitled "Somethin' Stupid", and "Some Velvet Morning". The incorrect answers are members of the Sinatra family: Frank Sinatra, Sr.'s three children, in order from eldest to youngest, are Nancy, Frank Jr., and Christina, or Tina.

From Quiz James Bond Theme Songs

From Quiz Singers of James Bond Theme Songs

Answer: Paul McCartney & Wings

While earlier James Bond films saw the likes of Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, and Nancy Sinatra taking on the role of theme song vocalists, "Live and Let Die" was the first to bring in a dash of rock. The 1973 film was the first to bring in new Bond actor Roger Moore and, with him, a shift in theme and setting. The track was a hit for Wings and ended up nominated for 'Academy Award for Best Original Song'. It would be the second Bond theme to do so after the song "The Look of Love", which was featured in the Bond parody "Casino Royale" (1967).

14. What is unique about "Skyfall" sung by Adele?

From Quiz James Bond Theme Songs

From Quiz All You Need is a Song

Answer: Paul McCartney

"Live and Let Die" by Paul McCartney & Wings rose to instant success, hitting a high of number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and number nine on the UK Singles Chart. The song was written by Paul and Linda McCartney, and has a catchy chorus of the title. Many artists covered this song, too, such as Guns N' Roses, Hank Marvin, lead guitarist of The Shadows, Geri Halliwell, one of the Spice Girls, and McFly. British singer Paul McCartney rocketed to fame with his fellow Beatles, together recording famous albums such as "Rubber Soul", "Revolver", and "The Beatles". Following the disbanding of The Beatles, McCartney continued recording on his own before creating a band called "The Wings", with whom he sang "Live and Let Die". A few selection's from his many hits are "My Love", "Mull of Kintyre", and "Ebony and Ivory".

16. What was the theme song to the James Bond film 'The Spy Who Loved Me'?

17. Complete this title of a Bond song sang by Lulu: 'The ___ with the ______ ___'.

18. "Goldfinger" is performed by Shirley Bassey. To date, Shirley is the only artist to provide the theme for more than one Bond film. How many has she done?

From Quiz The James Bond Music

Answer: 3

Shirley also did "Diamonds Are Forever" in 1971 and "Moonraker" in 1979.

19. "Nobody Does It Better" was the theme song for 1977's "The Spy Who Loved Me". Who sang it?

From Quiz Singers of James Bond Theme Songs

Answer: Carly Simon

The first opening theme from a James Bond film (since Bond's debut in "Dr. No") not to be named after the film it was featured in, "Nobody Does It Better" was composed by EGOT-winner Marvin Hamlisch who, coincidentally, wrote the song that beat out "Live and Let Die" for the Oscar (he made "The Way We Were"). "Nobody Does It Better" would also end up nominated for an Oscar and a Grammy, but it would end up losing on both accounts. Carly Simon wouldn't shy away from future soundtrack work either; she would create music for "Working Girl", winning an Oscar, a Grammy, and a Golden Globe for that in 1989.

20. Who composed the theme song to "Dr No"?

From Quiz James Bond Theme Songs

Answer: John Barry Orchestra

No one sang the theme to "Dr No", it was an instrumental. The "James Bond Theme" was composed by Monty Norman, and was performed by the John Barry Orchestra. John Barry would go on to compose the score for ten more James Bond films.

21. As a change, the theme song for "The Spy Who Loved Me" did not have the same name as the film. What was the title of that song by Carly Simon?

From Quiz All You Need is a Song

Answer: Nobody Does It Better

The title "Nobody Does It Better" seems from the lyrics to mean that nobody does what the "spy who loves me" does better than, well, the "spy who loves me". The song was one of Carly's top hits, peaking at number two in 1977 and lasting on the charts longer than Carly's previous hit "You're So Vain". American singer-songwriter Carly Simon had several top hits in her career that began in the 1960s. Prior to "Nobody Does It Better", her successes included "Anticipation" and "You're So Vain". After her hit with the 007 theme song, she went on to record well known singles, including "Let The River Run".

22. The following lyrics come from which James Bond theme song: "I've seen places, and faces, and smiles for a moment"?

From Quiz 007 Theme Songs

Answer: From Russia with Love

'From Russia with Love' was written by the late, and great Lionel Bart. It was sung by Matt Monroe.

23. Matt Munro sang the theme song to 'From Russia With Love', but who starred as James Bond?

From Quiz 'James Bond' Soundtracks

Answer: Sean Connery

This was the second 'James Bond' movie, released in 1963.

24. Which popular 1980s artist was the Academy Award-nominated singer behind "For Your Eyes Only" (1981)?

From Quiz Singers of James Bond Theme Songs

Answer: Sheena Easton

Bringing James Bond into the 1980s, "For Your Eyes Only" brought Bond back to Earth after his time in space in "Moonraker". For this Roger Moore outing, filmmakers relied on eventual Oscar-winner Bill Conti to create the theme tune, and though he originally wrote it for Donna Summer, it was inevitably given over to Sheena Easton who would also cameo in the same film (during the opening credits). Sheena Easton would go on to have a massively successful decade in the music industry.

25. Which singer, who sang "On Days Like These" from "The Italian Job" also sang the theme to "From Russia With Love"?

From Quiz James Bond Theme Songs

Answer: Matt Munro

Matt Munro was born in Shoreditch London in 1930 and was known as "The Man With The Golden Voice". He also sang the theme to the film "Born Free".

26. This film is for someone else's eyes only. Oh well, all you need is the song, right? For whose eyes - or in this case, ears - only did Sheena Easton sing one of the Bond films' theme songs?

From Quiz All You Need is a Song

Answer: Your

The 1981 James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only" featured the theme song, also called "For Your Eyes Only", by Sheena Easton. The song with its soft melody complemented by Easton's piercing vocals quickly became one of the singer's top hits. Scottish singer Sheena Easton is probably most widely recognized for singing "For Your Eyes Only", and appearing in the film's title credits, the first time any singer of a Bond theme song had done so. Easton did have several other hits, "9 to 5", "Strut", "U Got the Look", and "The Lover In Me".
