    Basset ??????

    Sorry. Fixed that. Must have had sweets on my mind!

    Ha! Good comeback. That's what happens when you start work at 5.20 am on a Saturday morning I guess.

    Art of Dying is pretty much how I want the next bond theme to sound

    I think had there been a Bond in 1991 or 1992 Lisa Stansfield would have been perfect especially with John Barry writing the music.
    Have you seen the film Indecent Proposal? Keeping in mind we mostly want British,

    I think that, in their primetime? they could have done it - Elton John, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Queen, Kate Bush, Alvin & the Chipmunks for James Bond Jr.

    Isn't Lisa from Manchester?

    Sade.
  • Stock Aitken Waterman
  • Radiohead perhaps.

    I'm not shure about who could of done a bond theme but I've just heard on the radio
    I belong to you by Caro Emerald don't know anything about her but what a song !
    It's got a Bond theme written all over it give it a listen if you get the chance.
  • Has Kirsty MacColl ever been mentioned ?

    There was a song of hers on the radio yesterday and I thought at once of this thread, and 'why not her'

    Sadly, Kirsty will never have an opportunity to do a future Bond theme, but at some point in the past she would of been a great candidate to have been given a go. Had quite a unique voice and had been a fine musical talent. It's a pity she was never even considered

  • Sade instead of Rita Coolidge for OP. And preferably an entirely different song.

    Cassandra Wilson instead of White/Keys for QOS. And definitely a different song.

    Karen Carpenter instead of Nancy Sinatra singing YOLT.

    Melissa Manchester instead of Lulu in Gun. A different song, too.

    Patty Smyth instead of Sheena Easton singing FYEO.

    Not sure about Patty Smyth, but a Patti Smith Bond theme would've been out of this world. FYEO isn't bad, but I'd have preferred a different song.

    Madonna COULD have done a Bond theme.

    I highly recommend both of her albums. I fell in love with her voice the moment I heard The Other Woman on the radio.

    Really like the song, but Sheena couldn't do it justice, much the way Nancy struggled with YOLT.

    Awful indeed.

    Ultravox in the early 80s would have been great.

    Michael Jackson could have done a great Bond song.

    Or better yet, in the late 70s.

    Always preferred the John Foxx era myself.
  • The band Muse. They could sound seductive and bad ass-- perfect for Bond.

    I like their style in which they build up tension and emotion:

    As much as I like you and respect you, Dragonpol, your suggestions are terrible.
    Muse or Bryan Ferry would be great. And Minormajor, the John Foxx era was good, but my favourite Ultravox album is probably Rage In Eden, and that sound was very appropriate for Bond, albeit maybe not during the Moore era.
    That Bryan Ferry track is by the way an Ultravox cover. From the Foxx period!
  • Smashing Pumpkins are my fav band, perhaps something like Disarm could work as a 007 theme if the powers-that-be want to experiment.

    Thank you, but yes, I guess they were pretty terrible. I think MJ was a great musician though, and I see little controversial about that as an opinion. I put that question mark at the end of the Pet Shops Boys' name for a reason - I guess it was meant a bit tongue in cheek.

    I see. But I did agree about Kate Bush. She can still do it.

    Yes, certainly. She's got a very beautiful voice.

    Three singers/songwriters who should do a Bond film.

    All three write great lyrics and create great music.

    SEAL
    STING
    GEORGE MICHAEL
