Yeah. Very funny. At this point, there's serious doubt that her record of singing a Bond theme at that age would ever be broken.
Much as I'm critical of the Brosnan films, except for DAD (of course) the music was better than that of the Craig movies. My favourite among the Brosnan films firmly remains SURRENDER, which should have been the title theme under the name that it was originally conceived, namely TOMORROW NEVER DIES. I don't dislike the Sheryl Crow song (and prefer it to the four most recent themes), but it doesn't stick up to "Surrender" in the least. The latter remains one of my candidates for Best Bond Song Ever.
OK, I'll shut up about this since this is a thread about the Worst Bond Song Ever.
In case I haven't written this earlier (didn't feel like checking), my perennial verdict in that regard goes to DAD. Same as with the worst entire movie.
I was going to "nominate" TMWTGG and was reviewing posts already up. Indeed. It is a lousy one. She's great, but went to waste with the stupid song.
It isn't serious, but they don't all have to be; perfect for a Moore film.
I dunno. Smiths whiney voice may grate, but the music is beautiful. Madonnas DAD is still unmatched for me, simply woeful in every department!
Have to say, i have grown more fond of Eilishs "NTTD', And it suits the film very well.
My favourites. Goldfinger, Live and Let Die, Nobody Does It Better. The best 'recent' one was 'The World Is Not Enough'. I wouldn't underestimate the value of a really great song. I hope then next one is a big improvement. There is, unfortunately, a tendency to use the latest big artist to do a song.
Yeah. I'm beginning to like NTTD with more listens...I didn't see that coming. Sure, YKMN is still be best.
From Lulu's voice ("Who will he bang? We shall see! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah") it's a bit overacting on her part, the lyrics are cringe.
Then the sound/tune, the instruments, even the orchestration, it's ridiculous, it's like a theme song made for a cheap 70's Asian comedy.
I'm not at all surprised in this, considering the slide whistle :))
It's for me, the nadir of the Bond themes, yes much more than Another Way To Die, at least Alicia Keys' voice kinda worked for the song, and I though liked the guitar riffs, especially the intro tune, but TMWTGG, it has no credits, even the intro tune was really laughable.
Oh wow, I thought it was just me!
That's the only one that has just zero Bond magic in it for me. FYEO could be any pop song.
What about YKMN and SF? Gotta complete the fivefecta
YKMN is one of my favorites. I like SF musically but not lyrically. It falls somewhere in the middle of my overall ranking.
