    It terrible. Now I know what scraping the bottom of a Barrell sounds like. I had really hoped for a Goldfrapp & David Arnold collaboration, but this was even worse than the lamentable effort for CR

    I've been championing Goldfrapp for over 6 years now....I don't think they'll get the chance now though...which would be a shame.

    My Dad wrote this song for it lol.

    Its my brother singing.

    My Dad writes some funny songs, and they usually come from dreams and he writes them down when he wakes up.

    I wish they would give these people a chance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zg2dXY9TOKA. Eminently better than the song they used despite the occasionally dodgy lyrics . . . love her Shirley Bassey voice.

    That's not really going to happen as Eon will want to have certain copyrights to the songs and when people send in their songs they just won't listen to them...

    I don't mind the song you linked too...for me, it pales by comparison to the song actually chosen...but I know I'm in the minority for thinking that :#

    I honestly think it blended badly too. It is really rough and melody can't break out of all the sounds that the slam out at once. It could have been worked beautifully for Keys, but I can't see Jack White doing it. I think it is the worst. I like the Madonna one, but because of how it is done in the titles.

    Am I allowed to swear here, 'cos QOS music track was utter trash :#

    Casino Royale's Chris Cornell was a breath of fresh air from some of the rubbish that went before it (save Cheryl Crow and Garbage), and 'You know my name' was a catchy bit of sound and I did enjoy it.

    fast forward two years and the pairing of Keys and the other person (I hate it so much I can't quite remember who sung it), was a murder to my ears, I think Bond today caters for the younger generation so they naturally thought it would be a good idea to go ahead with some teenage x-factor type wail. It wasn't, but it's no good crying over spilt milk.

    They desperately need to improve for the next release, no talentless kids who can't sing, get some proven voice that is world recognized and do it properly this time. I'd even have Duran Duran or A-HA back if that's what it takes.

    You can't remember Jack White ? :s Seriously ?

    Jack White could NEVER be described as "teenage x-factor type wail...with that line alone your whole argument falls flat...if you don't like the song - fine....but that come up with a line like that ?:)

    You also mention the two most boring Bond songs since the Brosnan era...and THAT takes some doing :))

    Good luck trying to get A~ha back...they split last year :))

    it was so goddamn awful I couldn't remember who it was really, or maybe I just turn the sound off when the credits come on or fast forward or leave the room etc

    when was the last time there was a decent Bond tune, apart from Casino Royale?

    Garbage's The World Is Not Enough is a good enough answer and if not that then Sheryl Crow takes the honors

    I really fear they will again come up with some manufactured plastic faced crap for Number 23, simply because the producers want Bond to be 'modern' or 'give the audience of today what they feel is most appropriate and sod everyone else who doesn't like it'

    Point being, Wings' Live and Let Die and Nancy Sinatra's You Only Live Twice were good tunes but they would have no place in todays climate and back then there was no well, garbage efforts like today, things have to set in with the time of the moment, even so, QOS as a whole was so disappointing to most people that some may never even turn up for the next release so what music they come up with may very well in the end be immaterial

    Well...you could have read about the title artist...or remembered his name to avoid more of his work...but I think you are over-dramatising for effect ;)

    Really ? You serious ? Both are ok but VERY bland...I expected so much more from Garbage....and Sheryl Crow's song is beaten hands down by kd lang and Surrender...

    I think we'll agree to disagree

    All I know is that while Casino Royale had a catchy, pleasing tune (guy from Soundgarden as main vocals so some good sounds could of been expected)

    But every time, the credits of QOS come on, I turn the sound off, I just didn't like what they had put together, and what I meant was at the end of the day people are not necessarily going to be discouraged from seeing a Bond movie merely due to what credits track they see fit to include, people have paid their $8 or whatever and aren't going to be leaving the theater so soon after the start, music or otherwise.

    They normally wait until about halfway through or two thirds as a number did when we went to see the latest release (2008 QOS)

    I agree with all that you said. Except the last sentence. I'd have Dame Shirley Bassey back instead :)

    Fine by me...we can also disagree on Soundgarden...they are TERRIBLE :#

    I never saw anybody leave the theatre until after the film had finished...and I went quite a few times ;)

    These people must have paid again to watch the end...otherwise how would it have done such great box-office ? :))

    I didn't see anyone leave either.

    In fact, the first time I saw it on opening night the cinema was packed and everyone seemed to really enjoy it – myself included...I left feeling very happy with the film...it was only on repeated viewings, with a much less busy and excited cinema that I started to not enjoy the film as much.

    I rarely ever see anyone leave a movie that they have paid to see and have already sat through most of the story on. As naturally curious humans, most of us aren't going to pay for a beginning and walk out on the ending unless the film is so horrid.

    No one left the theatre when I saw it, and furthermore it was well received based on people's comments as we exited.

    And the song certainly has nothing to do with people walking out on a movie...

    Agree 100% about k.d. lang and "Surrender". To me, that was the finest Bond film vocal tune in a long time.

    The song WAS completely brilliant :D :D :D :D
    Just kidding it was just AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL
    Not sure what song was worse DAD or QOS. But DAD was Madonna, so I expected it to be bad. Alecia Keys has talent, that makes QOS that much worse.

    Here's hoping both 23's movie & song are closer to CR than to QOS. I am sure that will make most in the Bond community far happier campers B-) B-) B-)

    If you took a Boy cat and smashed the hell out of his Boy bits with two House bricks, You couldn't come up with a worse sound than the QOS theme. :)), sorry to those you like it. But it is awful :D

    Well I do think the production helps kill the song. Lyrically it's not too bad and there is a tune of sorts, but the sound of it is awful imo.

    Couple of points....

    Firstly, soundgarden were seminal in creating grunge..they came before pearl
    Jam and Nirvanna, and as such, have a place in musical history... {[]

    Secondly, cornell did a great job with YKMN and it perfectly fits the last line of the film.... Superb subliminalism... :)

    Thirdly, no real interest in defending/psychoanalysing/decompartmentalising/slagging keys/White; all I think of when I hear that song is the last minute hash up it probably became once whine-house let eon down... I wish they'd leak the truth but maybe that makes them more respectable after all.... Maybe we'll never know....

    And always Remember the Sony influence .... Keys is a Sony artist....
    Interestingly back in 2006, cornell wasn't directly a Sony name, but audioslave were.... So Sony benefit through the secondary promotion of audioslave ... Indeed, even now, cornell is with universal, who are independent of Sony, but in a joint venture ....

    Guess who adele is with?... Yep Columbia...owned by Sony ;%


    Finally, sir miles....u know I was a founder member of the goldfrapp for bond faction... But as I mentioned before many threads ago..... Goldfrapp are with mute, owned until recently by emi... Now independent....

    But still a competitor of Sony.....

    Now if goldfrapp switch to Sony before they look like Betty davis and Mick jagger, I'm willing to bet they do a bond song almost immediately... :007)

    Semper fi...

    It would be interesting to hear if Eon ever did approach Winehouse about the theme tune...or was it more to do with the fact that her producer (Mark Ronson) is a Bond fan and he wanted to do one..?...wasn't it Ronson who pulled the plug on their recording sessions, saying that Amy just wasn't doing herself justice..?...

    Then Adele looks an even stronger bet... -{

    I do indeed...they have been a favourite of mine since Felt Mountain...and the quite brilliant track Utopia...

    Alas, on their last album - Head First - they seem to have lost their way, IMO...they'd need another album along the lines of Black Cherry to come into the reckoning again...

    And, for the record, they are sensational live -{

    I don't normally go in for rumour - dangerous in my game - but I am totally convinced about ms winehouse and bond.... And suspect the truth will seep out with a respectable period of mourning her sad, untimely death. RIP.

    Wasn't trying to convert u to soundgarden Paul, just respectful of your deep musical knowledge and taste..... And pointing to their place in history....

    And on goldfrapp....same.... Until they sign up with Sony family I'm afraid our wish remains a dream...

    And pls don't mention head first.... Kylie does jefferson starship.... :s

    Time will indeed tell, Paul...I just feel it was more from Mark Ronson than anybody else...I think Eon would have been silly to turn down the track though...but Ronson did pull the plug on the track...

    Each to their own, Paul...Soundgarden just aren't for me...but then I love AWTD so.... :))

    I don't see Goldfrapp changing record labels...so I guess Sony will just have to buy the label :D

    And that's about the kindest review of Head First I've read :))
