    This has always given me a "Bond-feeling". ;)

    Though it was used for the 1966 Spy Thriller, Deadlier Than The Male, the title track of the same name, by The Walker Brothers, would have made an equally cool Bond song:

    I want to see an orchestral arrangement, in the likes of Barber's Adagio for Strings, or Barry's On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

    Maybe not for Skyfall, but at some point.

    How about an 80s Classic ? ( Actually featured in American Psycho soundtrack ) :

    New Order - True Faith

    So true. I loved Alice since I was a kid and loved even more his little tributes to Bond. I'd have to guess he is a fan himself. Got to meet his daughter a few years back when she was engaged to a young musician with local Philly ties, I've known the kid's mother and late stepfather for forever.

    Really??? That's awesome.

    Not only is he a singer, he's actually good at it. Another reason to love Bruce Willis (no homo).

    Just heard the official Olympics song from Muse, "Survival" - Wow! The way it builds up, combined with the images, that's true craftmansship. Could well be a Bond tune, with altered lyrics.

    I know this one's from Batman Forever, but it could be a great Bond theme, tho.
  • So here's a radical suggestion:

    I was browsing on YouTube, and for some reason came across this song:



    And while I listened to it, I was watching that footage from that cancelled Raven 007 game, and it matched so bloody well I thought I'd share it.

    Yeah, it would be a change, and it would benefit from a more classic/Bond-type of orchestration, but for some reason, imo, it sounds Bond :)

    Wondering what you think about it....

    Repost of this thread-starter which I started up without knowing this thread existed http://www.mi6community.com/index.php?p=/discussion/4173/your-suggestions-for-future-bond-themes#Item_2


    What would you like to see happen for future Bond film themes? Would you like it to remain classic and old school? Would you like an artist like Chris Cornell to do the next Bond theme? or would you like a slower track? Or, have you even got any actual song suggestions for a Bond theme?

    So here's mine;
    1) Sound of a Gun - by Audioslave, except sang by Sir Tom Jones and made more orchestral and given the Bond treatment - in the break you can even hum John Barry's James Bond Theme and it fits!

    2) Loverman - a song originally by Nick Cave, the best version of this is by Depeche Mode's Martin Gore, so an orchestral version like that, but sang by Rihanna. I'm not into modern pop music, and especially not Rihanna - but I can imagine her singing a more classy song in an effort to be like Shirley Bassey (though no one can eclipse Dame Shirley!)


    3) Love is a Losing Game - by Amy Winehouse of course re-sang by Adele with added Bond orchestration and with more of the Prince arrangement. This would be a slower song reflecting on love and would be more akin with the softer slower female sang songs of the Roger Moore films.


    4) I also love the Blood Stone game Bond theme song I'll Take It All by Joss Stone and Dave Stewart.
  • Peter Gabriel song Digging in the dirt fits well.

    Hooverphonic - Danger Zone

    It's the bassist's/bandleader's (Alex Callier) dream to compose a Bondsoundtrack, btw.

    Dark Paradise by Lana Del Ray - you can almost imagine the title sequence as the song plays (BTW - sorry the video is some random home made vid, it's the only one that hadn't altered the pitch or speed)

  • Whenever I hear this song a PTS immediately comes into mind:

    Perhaps a different vocalist. But I like the tune. Obviously should be longer.

    Sounds Brozzer era-ish. I like it :)


  • How about this one 'Dangerous Game' by Shirley Bassey. The B side for 'Big Spender' in 1967. If this isn't pure Bond I don't know what is!
  • Surely one cannot deny Supremacy by MUSE would be absolutely brilliant!!

    That MUSE song would be a good one.

    If they wanted a 60's/70's Shirley Bassey type song anything by Pizzacato Five would be Bondish (they would have to translate the Japanese lyrics) -

  • No idea how to put up a youtube video [sorry!] but track 1 [PRELUDE] on the Europe album Last Look At Eden is just emmense!!

    Laura Pausini - Amores Extraños (Strange Loves)

    This would fit so well. The rythim and the lyrics are great.

    Would be a kind of music that a Bond girl would make for Bond.



    If you want the Translation:
    Ya sabía que no llegaría
    Ya sabía que era una mentira
    Cuanto tiempo que por él perdí
    Que promesa rota sin cumplir
    Son amores problemáticos
    Como tú, como yo

    Es la espera en un teléfono
    La aventura de lo ilógico
    La locura de lo mágico
    Un veneno sin antídoto
    La amargura de lo efímero
    Porque él se marchó

    Amores, tan extraños que te hacen cínica
    Te hacen sonreir entre lágrimas
    Cúantas páginas hipotéticas
    Para no escribir las auténticas
    Son amores que sólo a nuestra edad
    Se confunden en nuestros espíritos
    Te interrogan y nunca te dejan ver
    Si serán amor o placer

    Y cúantas noches lloraré por él
    Cúantas veces volveré a leer
    Aquellas cartas que yo recibía
    Cuando mis penas eran alegrías
    Son amores esporádicos
    Pero en ti quedarán

    Amores, tan extraños que vienen y se van
    Que en tu corazón sobrevivirán
    Son historias que siempre contarás
    Sin saber si son de verdad

    Son amores frágiles
    Prisioneros, cómplices
    Son amores problemáticos
    Como tú, como yo
    Son amores, frágiles
    Prisioneros, cómplices
    Tan extraños que viven negándose
    Escondiéndose de los dos

    Ya sabia que no llegaría
    Esta vez me lo prometeré
    Tengo ganas de un amor sincero
    Ya sin él...

    I knew you wouldn't arrive
    I knew it was a lie
    How much time for him i've lost
    What promises that you didn't fulfill
    These are Problematic Loves
    Like you, like me

    The wait for a Phone call
    The adventure of the ilogical
    The madness of the magic
    A poison without antidote
    The bitterness of the ephemeral
    Because he's gone

    Loves, so stranger ones that make you cynic
    Makes you smile between tears
    How much hipotetic pages
    To not get writting the authentics
    They're loves that only in our age
    Get confused in our spirits
    Interrogating you and never letting you see
    If it's love or pleasure

    And how many nights i'll cry for him
    How many time i'll get back to read
    those letters i've received
    when my punishes were happiness
    They're spordic loves
    But in you they'll stay

    Loves, so strangers that they come and they go
    And they'll survive in your heart
    They are stories that you'll always tell
    without knowing if they're real

    They're fragile loves
    Prisoners, accomplices
    Problematic loves
    Like you, like me
    They're fragile loves
    Prisoners, accomplices
    So strangers, that stay refusing themselves
    Hiding from both of'em

    I knew you wouldn't arrive
    I'll promise myself this time
    I have wanted a sincere love
    Without him, already...

    Always thought Tears For Fears should have been given a shot in the 80s.

    This one came a late in the early 90s. But might have worked with an orchestra on it...

    Elvis would have been a great choice for a Bond theme singer, 2 songs from elvis would have been great as Bond themes :



  • This song always reminds me of Bond. Katie Melua is one of my favorites and I can just picture a title sequence by Daniel Kleinman with this.

  • Lana Del Rey - Burning Desire

    Agreed!

    It's 'Madness' this song wasn't used for Skyfall but maybe it could be for the next one, but I think that ship sailed.
