  3. What is on my ipod:
    I actually enjoy the slightly annoying Another Way To Die (Quantum of Solace) purely for the juxtaposition of Jack White and Alicia Keys.
    I also enjoy The Scientists remake of You Only Live Twice.
    I really enjoy the hell out of Thunderball. No sense what so ever.
    For Your Eyes Only is a great little singalong.
    I used to have a Bond collection but I guess I don't anymore.

  4. Turns out I have Moonraker, too. I see why it didn't make the top 10. Not so good.
