Sorry. Fixed that. Must have had sweets on my mind!
You don't have to apologise it takes Allsorts !
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
Isn't Lisa from Manchester?
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.
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
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.
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.
Ultravox in the early 80s would have been great.
Or better yet, in the late 70s.
Always preferred the John Foxx era myself.
I like their style in which they build up tension and emotion:
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!
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.
Yes, certainly. She's got a very beautiful voice.
All three write great lyrics and create great music.
I agree about Sting.
