You could get Matt Monro, Jr. I'm sure he's available.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

I just heard "Arsonist's lullaby' by Hozier and I think the artist has a lot of potential as. Bond title song singer.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

I'd love Noel Gallagher to do the theme tune to Bond 25, and I wouldn't be against Adele coming back and doing another one either.

I'd be keen for a Michael Bolton featuring Kenny G Bond Song.  ajb007/lol  ajb007/martini

Being a Kiwi (or at least based there) you've no doubt heard of Bic Runga.  Just interested to know what your thoughts are if she were to do a Bond theme song.  For mine I think she would be perfect.  The album 'Birds' is absolutely brilliant.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

I 'discovered' Bic Runga on a trip to NZ about ten years ago and thought she had an amazing voice. I picked up a couple of CDs before heading home. Haven't heard anything new of hers in recent years but if she sounds the same today, I think she'd do a great Bond theme.

111

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Wow, I'm surprised Bic Runga is known outside of NZ. I thought was just one of those local small time artists.
her voice is amazing!

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Ed Sheeran wrote a song for Bond three years ago.  He is very keen on becoming a Bond title song artist and has the song in case he's asked some time in the future.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Rag'n'Bone Man has a fantastic soulful voice , which I think would sound
fantastic over some Daniel Kleinman titles.

Please no. He's even more anodyne than the Crown prince of Beige Sam Smith if that's possible.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Laura Mvula or Monarchy would be cracking choices.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

I don't know about the rest of you but I'd quite like something with a bit more oomph this time seeing as we had Adele and Sam Smith for the last two.

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

118

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Everybody has their favorites for the Bond theme. Realistically, it will be someone (or a band) that is big internationally and is well known in the USA....that's just how its been. Unlike the old days, when the score composer wrote a theme song and then the composer and the producers went out and found a singer to perform it, most of the artists doing Bond themes today are also writing the song and it is hit or miss if they are even collaborating with the composer of the score.

Now she would be a superb choice. Lorde would also be good, but perhaps in a few years. No more dringey Ballads please I beg of you. Something big and ballsy with lots of Orchestration. Come to think of it Mvula would be ideal, she could do big but not overblown.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

Muse all the way for me.  'Supremacy' would have been a killer Bond theme.

Re: Bond 25 Theme: Artist

All great suggestions, clearly there is no shortage of suitable talent, Muse and Goldfrapp are perenialy on my wish list, yet we got Sam Smith with an anemic dirge and an accompanying boast re how quickly he dashed  it off. That coupled with a Mendes score of mind numbing underachievement. Here's hoping...
