I have heard alot of songs that sounded similar to a Bond theme song. Just listen to the famous rifts and the beat.

Here's the list:

Bobby Hebb - Sunny
A Bond rift (from Dr. No) is played after the line "Sunny once so true, I love you." This is the #1 song that has a Bond flavour.

The Guess Who - Undun
After the "she's comin' down" line, a Bond theme song is played five times during the lyrics "Too Many Mountains...too many churches...too many people...too many lives..."

Petula Clark - Kiss Me Goodbye
The tune is similar to You Only Live Twice.

Stray Cats - Stray Cat Strut
The rift is similar to OHMSS.

ABBA - Voulez Vous
That song reminds me of a Moore-era Bond tune, which is from the opening ski scene in The Spy Who Loved Me, where the bad guys were trying to kill 007.

Stephanie Mills - Never Knew Love Like This Before
That song is similar to the Moonraker theme song in the end of the film.

Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal
That song sounded like an 80's James Bond theme playing over and over, both Ice Chase and Exercise at Gibraltar from The Living Daylights soundtrack.

Terence Trent D'Arby - Sign Your Name
That song reminds me of a 90's Bond tune, Goldeneye.

Mariah Carey - Can't Let Go
That song reminds me of Licence to Kill. Similar beat.

Miley Cyrus - See You Again
At the end of the song, the guitar rift is played. It is like an ending of a Bond theme.

    The Move - Blackberry Way. Sounds so James Bond-esque that Roy Wood actually played the Bond theme tune before he played Blackberry when I saw him live last year.
