Not at all IMHO. If you're familiar, it smacks much more of Bryan Ferry, with a bit of Chris DeBurgh thrown in.
That's an absolutey phenomenal shout.
While we're all jumping in on AWTD or DAD as the worst Bond song you have nailed it in one Thunderfinger. For a new poster you are exceptionally cultivated.
This is hands down the worst Bond song of the lot. It's like aural beige. At least AWTD has some Bondian riffs before Keys starts her demented screeching but The Experience of Love has absolutely nothing.
If you could hear paint drying this is what it would sound like.
Although I'd prefer it where it is than ruining Leon which is as close to perfect a film as you really get.
Die Another Day I actually liked.
Crowe's song wasn't nearly as bad as some say, but Lang's song was SO much superior.
i'll argue another way to die had a good tune shame it was stained with vocals

Knight's License to Kill can also become irritating after so many listens, as is Patti LaBelle's If you asked me to, which comes at the very end
I can't. IMO, the tune is repetitive, ham-fisted and dull. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, redemptive in AWTD.
Got it in one. It has no saving graces whatsoever. No redeeming features. It's simply put, a disaster from start to finish. In retrospect, it was a fitting theme for an overall disappointing release, despite Craig's best efforts to keep it's head above water
Try thinking about it without the ohhhOh OHh oh OH WOOO. :))
Even the title designs were poor and lackluster and devoid of idea. Was it Kleinman involved that year ? If so, that was disappointing from his usual high standards
Spot on, Wizard. Better to have it in a film I do not care to revisit anyway.
Still find AWTD kind of crappy because of the vocals though. ;)
I thought Adele's recent effort was average but it would have really benefited from having been integrated into Newman's score (which I thought was just weak). I really hope Mendes insists on greater collaboration between Newman and whoever pens the title track for the next one. A properly integrated score and title track is a true hall mark of a quality Bond movie and not something we'd had for years until CR.
(I leave myself open for the obvious lampoon)
Once more, the absolute worst the franchise has to offer would be Quantum of Solace and Die Another Day, with Simon's Nobody does it better and Easton's For your eyes only, not far behind. Can we put Serra's Experience of Love in here also ? That was a disaster
I don't know anything about the band, but their title track is not bad at all, and its lyrics are among the best in the Bond catalog. As far as I know, this is the only song sung from the villain's point of view.
4. Another Way To Die - J. White & A. Keys (just trying to hard to make it work)
3. Living Daylights - a-ha (doesn't fit as a Bond song)
2. Golden Gun - Lulu (embarrassingly dated)
1.You Only Live Twice - N. Sinatra (ouch, cut the squeaky riffs!) hum, wish her Pop could have had a crack at it at some point...
Especially given the really cool Shirley Bassey song they could have gone with instead.
Anything from 1964-1989 is classic in my books.
Die Another Day was also a piece of trash that should have been put out with the garbage. A terrible stain on the franchise's legacy. To go from Goldfinger to this? My word.
The Experience of Love from Eric Serra that ended GE - terribly nondescript 80's sounding fodder.
Another Way to Die is very difficult to listen to & I don't like it at all, but I think it was meant to sound this way.....sort of disjointed, like a garbled, scratchy mirror version of You Know My Name. To reflect Bond's pain and confusion during the movie. Still don't like it though.
It will be the 200th time.
