The last big hit by 1980's British New Wave band Duran Duran. In this single from May 1985, their electro synth pop music is given an orchestral rock feel, as it was written especially for the James Bond movie "A View to a Kill". This was the 14th Bond film and was the last one made with Roger Moore as the titular character. The song reached No. 1 in 7 countries (including the USA & Canada) an gained a top ten position in 11 other countries (including the UK).

None are really memorable and for us it's a remix (in lieu of a 12" single that wasn't released by Duran Duran) by Art of Noise, that really stands out:
