I forgot how horrible the Die Another Day theme is. I guess it's only fitting for the film it went with.

The K.D Lang song over the end credits of Tomorrow Never Dies is much, much better than Sheryl Crow's one.

If you'd like to hear a GREAT cover of You Know My Name, there's a Finnish (!) band called Poets of the Fall that recorded their own version of it. In the video, which, of course is on YouTube, they're all in tuxes.....

Madonna and Lulu the 2 worst ever. Moonraker ain't a good 1 either. Surprised Skyfall is good, despite being by Adele. For Your Eyes Only and Licence To Kill and You Know My Name are my faves

Joined: 19/5/2008 a Bond feature. Take a look at all the gun barrel openings through the series. From first three Bob Simmons, to Sean Connery almost tipping over. To Pierce Brosnan shooting stupid cgi-bullet THROUGH the gun barrel - just as idiotic as the rest of the Die Another Day - to Danny Graig running and almost forgetting to shoot at the end of Quantum. Review all of them and give stars!

Duran Duran had already split into their side projects before A View to a Kill.
Also, Carly Simon has never had a #1 here. And only You're so Vain went to #1 in the USA.

I wonder, seeing as they've criticised it here, if Empire have mentioned them proclaiming Die Another Day as the "Best Bond Ever" on the cover when it was released.

Would have much rather seen the footage from the films as the songs unwind, not
the artists............can understand why Adele had none but not the rest

I actually like the Jack White / Alicia Keys duet. I know it's not a popular opinion but it's catchy, a little bit more rock'n roll than usual... I don't understand why people hate it. I do understand why people hate Madonna's Die Another Day though. Or Madonna's whole singing / acting career for that matter.
Best Bond song ever ? That would be We Have All the Time in the World and apparently that's the last thing Louis Armstrong ever recorded...

I love Adele, but her voice isn't strong enough for this song. Not terribly well sung either. Listen to Diamonds are forever or Nobody does it better. Classy and iconic. Still the films attached to these songs were great too.

After hearing Skyfall, can anybody actually remember any of it (except for the actual bond theme underneath it)? The lyrics are empty and soggy, completely devoid of character or wit. The song is just a trail of forgettable motifs and cringeworthy lines. I am afraid that no matter how good the film could be, i will always be dreading sitting through this steaming pile of average (by today's standards), be it in the cinema or on DVD. An unforgivable miss from EON and Adele.

QOS theme - Hated it then and hate it now. Just pips Madonna's for the worst one yet.

This is not memorable at all, or a grower. I personally like Chris Cornell's 'You Know my Name' and I liked Jack White's 'Another Way to Die'. Of the olds I like 'A View to a Kill' and 'Live and Let Die'.

There is a much better (and as far as I've read discarded by the Bond people) theme for Tomorrow Never Dies.
Apparently EON loved the track but wanted Sheryl Crow to sing it - to which the originating band said: No!
Hence we got _that_ Sheryl song and not this Swan Lee version:

if you think the new song is unmemorable. It's what they call an instant classic.

'Another Way to Die' was pretty damn good thought...can't understand why it's universally detested. Didn't like 'You Know My Name' when it appeared on this site years ago but over the years it's become one of my favourites.
Still can't beat 'A View to a Kill'. I hate DuranDuran too.
Not impressed with Skyfall...too many lyrics rhyming with 'fall'
