Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Yes, it's more about the writing of the song than what should be the obvious quality of Beyonce as an artist. Personally I could do without an attempt to copy the 60's themes - which is why I'm not keen on Licence to Kill or Goldeneye's themes - or a Quantum of Solace-style shoutfest.

Yup that's number one,  number 2 is the possible involvement of her husband and I could just lines with Aston Martin and omega name drops in there. Number 3 is we've been down that road with Alicia Keys.  Number 4 is for me she doesn't have the right vocal qualities. 
I'd prefer Rag n bone man or Lourdes or Muse

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

I think she has the voice for it. I don't think Jay Z should be involved,  David Arnold would be a better composer for a Bond theme song.
I'm not sure what you mean by having been down that road with Alicia Keys.  Beyoncé has a different voice from Keys and I can't picture Beyonce singing like Keys did in "Another way to die".

They share a similar style and both have a tendency to go a bit shouty and within their genre there are far better vocalists,  if we are going down the pop/ r and b diva route I'd rather someone like Emile Sandi or even Lady Gaga did it.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

I think Bastille could do an interesting Bond theme. I imagine it could be like a modern day Duran Duran "A View To A Kill," which I think might be pretty cool!

You are forgetting the traitor in the room, Madonna.
She'd done The Spy Who Shagged Me and Die Another Day, one being considerably better than the other.

a reasonable rate of return

I'd rather they looked forward and not backwards.Something fresh and 21st century would be my preference.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Thought you guys might enjoy this.  I had some cool new plugins to play around with, so we recorded our own Bond 25 song, with the title "Shatterhand."  Just a fun side project, but I think it captures the Craig-era vibe pretty well.  Check it out and let me know if you like it or hate it.

I don't see why Shirley bassey couldn't do another theme.  After all she did "no good about goodbye"  with David Arnold not that long ago, and that would have been an excellent qos theme,  Arnold even uses qos cues in it.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Before every movie comes out I hope for Shirley Bassey. I'll even take her just doing an end credits song.

For a more realistic choice - Jessie J

I always wished they at least used her song in the end credits.  It fit way better with the score than "Another Way to Die."

I have a sneaking suspicion that it may well be me. Don't get me wrong, love the Miss Bassey, made the Pilgrimage many times...it would certainly not be the end of my world, just not my preference that's all.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

I hate to blow my own trumpet, but I have the voice AND the song, dont believe me?

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

London Gramma, Florence Welch or Susanne Sundfør would be contenders for me.

97

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Michael Bublé would be the most suitable vocalist for the next JB theme.
