Taste sure is subjective. I'm really surprised by the animosity towards NTTD; I find it be an outstanding Bond theme and perfect for the film.
It's certainly all subjective. I sometimes feel like the only one who loves All Time High and Moonraker.
I would have preferred No Good About Goodbye for QoS instead of Another Way To Die, but fully appreciate it was never in the mix (as previously confirmed by David Arnold). I always find it a little odd that the opening bars are in the film though, considering this.
Yeah, I don't hate it, I think it's fine, and the piano line is memorable. I kind of wish it would take off a bit more though, I'd like one that's properly big and grand and operatic like Skyfall again.
Well he just wrote it after the film but with a slight eye towards it, hence 'solace' being in the lyrics too.
Moonraker is my least favourite of Shirley Bassey's three themes. I like the tune, but the lyrics don't make any sense.
No Time To Die is just 3 minutes of shouting.
Tomorrow Never Dies- Sheryl Crow struggles to hit the high notes in the chorus.
Moonraker is an incredibly haunting song about a woman who yearns for Bond
No Time To Die is surely more 3 minutes of mumbling?
Another Way To Die is more shouty.
Hear! Hear! I love it. Shirley Bassey hates it.
The whole Moonraker soundtrack is also one of my faves.
Agreed Agreed Agreed
I meant Another Way To Die.
Welcome to the Moonraker title song appreciation society @Gymkata And yes, the soundtrack is stupendous.
I'm with you on You Know My Name. Gives me goose bumps every time. Great song for a great film.
There is a haunting melancholy to the lyrics of Moonraker that I really appreciate
I just watched the Sound of 007 documentary, and it should be great consolation to know that Prince really dug Another Way To Die! That's all the validation I need lol
I'm no big fan of Another way to die" and DAD. There's a couple I'm indifferent to, such as LTK and "All time high", but most of the title songs are great! These are objective statements based on scientific testing, not just subjective opinions. 😁
He's got a good voice, but I'm not sure he's a great singer. Feels a bit off time in places, I'm not sure he's not out of tune at others.
Nah, I know Cornell, and I know singing off the beat; he hasn't quite got the hang of it to my ear. And Cornell wasn't out of tune.
Still, not being as good a singer as Chris Cornell isn't a shameful thing, there's not many who are! 😊
I much preferred Q The Music's rendition of No Time To Die to the official version, so I also agree, it's Billy's voice and delivery I struggle with.
Tinged with sadness it's now not currently possible to get everyone to see Q The Music as they conclusively settle the debate as to wether or not AWTD is a banger. Reader, it is!
