She may be as mad as a bag of spanners but the 5 minutes of consciousness that she has each day could be used to belt out a cracking bond theme. Even though Mark Ronson sounds like rhyming slang for you know what, he can produce great songs. Besides, who remembers Die Another Day? It's gotta be better than Madonna painfully subjecting the world to her Camel's Toe again!!!!

But what does Mark Ronson rhyme with? Charles Bronson? Magic Johnson?

Was pondering such a subject earlier today before I even heard this news. Previously I could have put money on the Dave Arnold/Nina Cardigans "Deceased" (check it out on youtube), if Vic and Bob hadn't got there first. But maybe that's a bit too formulaic for the Daniel Craig era. Much as I love what Dave Arnold has done (and I really like his re-issue of the Bond themes and the Hot Fuzz Suite), I reckon a bit of Ronson styling is the back-to-basics approach that goes with the flavour of the rebooted Bond franchise. Compare with the closing titles music to "The World is Now Enough", shudder.

John Barry's original James Bond theme has a similar mix ancient-and-modern (in Barry's case, twangy rock and roll mixed with traditional jazz) to Mark Ronson's Version, or "Liitlist Things" he produced for Lliy Allen.

So, to paraphrase the Manics, Let Ronson Sing. Although Amy Whitehouse seems a touch too obvious - too "invented by a tabloid" - I'd prefer something a tad more leftfield and unexpected. Alison Wheeler, anyone?

Rhymes with cock, as in "I'll take some decent tunes, put some shite, poppy brass in the background, get a 'hip' singer and make an album or two...quids in!  Gee, i've now ruined a Smiths and Radiohead song, amongst others, i'm such a..."

Nothing could be worse than Whinehouse singing the theme and as for Mark Ronson he's an 'ok' producer. Can the Bond producers not see what they have in David Arnold he is one of the best composer/producers in the business and can turn his hand to work with anyone, did anyone see his work with the Kaiser Cheifs at the electronic proms. At this rate David Arnold will do a John Barry and leave the series and then we will end up with likes of French Eric and his bin lids from Goldeneye again.

Is this the best they can come up with? Correct me if I am wrong but there are alot, and I can't stress this enough, more talented people working in the music industry; Muse or RadioHead for example. If not, then I believe the Bond song should be offered to those who have years of experience i.e. true legends of the bizz, not a couple of hacks who aren't good enough for the X-Factor. Sorry guys, it's a no!

With their strings and 60's / Bond pastiche they would produce a great bond theme

Shouldn't they do what's right and go for what everyone thinks will be a fantastic idea and get Muse to do it?!

Urgh. That coked-up skank will never get around to doing the damned thing anyway. When she is conscious she's either out of her face or aiming her dirty skinny arse in the direction of the Sun's photographers. Her musical credibility only survives on an already over-hyped reputation. Ronson's a corker but I'm sure there are hundreds of singers much more suited (not to mention more reliable) than the Wino.

I have no beef with Winehouse doing the tune but knowing ronsons record, he'll get someone else to write it and perform it and then have his name platered all over it with "mark ronsons quantum of solace"-the guy is a hack! I mean you dont see Steven Street's name all over the albums hes produced...I mean, its not "steven streets Strangeways here we come featurng the smiths".And even though we know phil spector produced the ronnettes, even he didnt have the sheer ego to claim sole credit over there work to the extent ronson has...in all fairness the credits to that release of valeries should have been "amy winehouse's valerie by the zutons and produced by mr" but NOOOO....how can that hack sleep at night when all he does is get someones elses incredibly recent songs (I mean its not as if theyve dated or need a revamp)gets someone else to cover them, adds saxophone and strings and, what, he's a genius?Plus the "talent" he's using isnt astounding-lily allen my arse. the guy is the worst thing to happen to music in a long, looong time-he neds to get in his place, accept the already ample praise a simple production credit will get him, and develop some actual talent. Rant ends.

she'll bring too much negative press, which they have already (curse of bond, indeed...). I like the suggestions of Muse or Radiohead. Anyone who's heard Radiohead's cover of Nobody Does it Better can agree.

Failing that , get Tom Jones back, he still rules!

Wow, a lot of harsh comments from Amy's fellow Brits ... why are you guys so down on her? I'm American, and the first time I heard "You Know I'm Know Good" I thought it sounded like the best James Bond theme I never heard. She even drops Roger Moore's name in the tune. Having her do a 007 title song is not only brilliant, but a no brainer. Seriously, why all the hating?

Despite the negative press and the well publicised drugs problems - there is still no pont in denying that she has a great voice and that the last Winehouse/Ronson effort was a stonking version on Valerie. The last few theme songs have been nothing to write home about (in fact the last decent one was Licence to Kill, as all civilised people agree) so this might just deliver the right mix of gusto and bombast required for a Bond theme. The suicidal stylings of the likes of Muse and Radiohead - no thanks - you'll be suggesting Moz next!

That's send more signals top young girls who admire her that's it's okay to snort Snowdon size cockaine moutains. BS the law and marry your probable person who got you fixed on drugs and still be suvvessful and get the infamous bond theme tune gig.
It's bad enough that the Grammys joined the Winehouse love-in this year.
Any way she and Ronson murdered The Zutions fantastic Valerie and she getting more embarrassing by the day. Well done Michael G Wilson anc Barbara Brocoli.
WQewll let's face the Casino Royale one was pump so this one will be too.

Muse are a daft idea, it won't work, wellonly for Muse fans, look at Garbage, I rest my case, not collabing with David Arnold maybe a good thing, if they go with it it gives him enough time to incorporate into his score, he's supposedly spending 6 months on this time after banging out his best but still not great score for Royale in matter of weeks. I say Winehouse & Ronson are inspired choice, I can see them respecting Barryrather than just aping his sound ala Arnold.

What about Pete Doherty?...Only joking. Winehouse's involvement is par for the course. I have never known such a spindle shank woman attract such paprazzi attention. This is a clever move. The album sold by the bucket load, on a good day she sure can sing plus there is an element of free publicity. Surely to God it cant be worse than Madonna's Die Another Day. Someone was on crack when they wrote that.

Despite her blatant stupidity, she's got talent. It'll harken back to the Shirley Bassey days too.

The most hideous creation to be associated with the Bond franchise since Grace Jones. Still, if she can stay alive long enough she might be able to turn in a decent song.

I was in my car listening to her CD, particularly the second track and I thought her voice and the throw back, scratchy LP, smoky British small time Jazz club feel of the album reminded me of Shirley Bassey. In no way do I think Winehouse has the chops of Bassey, but it reminded me of the same Goldfinger flavor. I said "Hmmm...she might make a nice Bond song if they bring it (theme son)g back to that style." You can imagine my surprise when I read this story =). I hope she does it. With her style of singing, if done right, this could be very decent if not one of the best.

Its because scum-bags like Winehouse, Pete (also waaaaaaaaay over rated) Doherty and that other useless coke-head Kate Moss are a terrible example to the brainless young idiots who look up to them for some baffling reason and see that no matter how many times they are out of their face on all kinds of ILLEGAL substances they can get away scot free with a slap on the wrist and an even bigger social and media profile. These arse-holes are trading on the fact that they are coke-heads and the media encourages it and the courts... Fuck me, what use are those stupid bastards?

End of understandable rant.

Fucking country is going to the dogs....

Amen to that. They need to lock those idiots up and throw away the key. If the average joe does even half the things those fools stand accused of, then we will most certainly look at 5 to 6.

Astrud Gilberto and Portishead rumors? - 1/5/2008 2:57:51 PM

I've been really disappointed in the Bond producers choice of singers and songs since the late 90's. A-Ha's: The Living Daylights was, in my opinion, the last good one. I think the problem occurred during the Brosnan era when Bond films looked to Hollywood for ideas whereas previously they had been the films on the cutting edge. Tina Turner and Garbage were interesting choices but the songs, lets face it, are already forgotten. Another Brosnan era issue was that all of the musicians chosen for those films were american. There was an obvious bias at work and a favoritism towards the american audiences. I recall in the mid 90's discussing with a friend, 'How cool would it be if Portishead did the next bond song? they would nail it.' And lets face it they would, but the problem is, the current day producers don't recognise such artists. Amy WInehouse could be ok, but she is almost too canonical in her output. II can anticipate she and her producer friend have submitted something conservative and safe. I think considering much of the film is set in South America, the producers should give Astrud Gilberto a call. Ok well there were no rumors as such but i hope you read my comment.

Total Agreement with you. There is no way in hell she should be allowed near it. And for what it's worth i loved Chris Cornells song for the last one.
