My personal picks for this are...
TMWTGG - Lulu
DAD - Madonna
AWTD - Alicia Keys and Jack White
I agree. when I first heard it I thought it was rather annoying but it has a way of getting in your head. It's kinda a cute little tune and the scene where it is played in the movie adds to the tension.
To end with the line "...he needs love." as the camera pans on Tracy finding Bond at the end of his rope. Masterful.
Didn't think of it that way...
I think you already posted this, sir.
As for AWTD I must admit to being biased being a big Jack White fan but I was quite a fan when it came out and the more I hear it with or without QOS I like it more, Brosnan's era with the exception of G.E has some worst themes of the series.
To say this is the worst when you have TND, TWINE & DAD.
And welcome to the forum, GoldenShadow, with your insightful critique of AWTD.
Nobody Does It Better (Shopping music)
Moonraker (Even more shopping music)
Octopussy (Yet even more shopping music)
All Time High
Tomorrow Never Dies
Die Another Day
The rest have varying charms, some more than others.
My favorite remains the Calypso arrangement of "Three Blind Mice"!
:-L It's arguably one the finest intros of the last 25 years, if not beyond
And if Aguilera ever gets the opportunity to do a Bond theme.. I think I'll go offshore..
DAD - Positively Shocking.
AWTD - Really Positively Shocking.
Thanks! :) It's all about taste, I guess. As a fan I really tried to find something good about AWTD, but I couldn't find something. The "singing" is like strangling a cat to me. Whats the sense of a duet when the male part sounds like a woman too...
Of recent efforts the Twine and Dud tracks sucked big time.
Shame they didn't use Arnold's KD Lang tune as the main song for TND - it would have lifted the whole film. Crow's effort was weak but not the worst.
Yeah, I preferred Lang's theme for TND over Crow's. Every time I think of TND's theme, I usually hum the tune to the ending credits, which was Lang's version.
Look... we got ourselves another Shadow
Anyone who finds the awful Keys and White - awful, is being factual and correct. You can't say fairer than that. It's an abomination, a disaster, anything such you want to classify it as, I don't think I could ever listen to it again
Just in reference to more recent posts, Thunderball was OK, but Jones was suitable at the time of release, I think if they had tried it 10 or 15 years later it wouldn't have worked for me. Golden Gun is really energetic and lively, the best Lulu sounds I have heard other than 'The man who sold the world', not really a fan of the singer though
Garbage did Ok in 1999, not the best we ever had but by no means the worst with it, I could easily sit down and watch the credit intros with the background music playing. Nothing more needs to be said about Die Another Day. I would never in a thousand years want KD Lang as main song artist for Tomorrow Never Dies, it's an awful film, and not even Ms Crow could save it, but it's all very well and good she got to do the main theme, I wouldn't want it any other way
