    by Fah-Cue

    I think all the hype about her is that she's a fat, white chick that sounds black when she sings... just like Amy Winehouse (who's music bored me also). Yeah, yeah: call me a racist, if you want. You know it's true.

    by The Great One

    I went to see them in concert this summer and after 25 years, they can still put on a hell of a show. One segment was very similar to a Bond opening and it it me they never did an opening theme. Think they'd be absolutely perfect.

    by the dolphins are in the jacuzzi

    Now, you've got me thinking. I know that Bond movies rarely feature duets (in fact, the only one I can think of was the atrocious Jack White / Alicia Keys song [why the Hell, with the talent involved, wasn't that better?]), but a duet between Adele and Cee-lo could be fucking phenomenal.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 1:39 a.m. CST

    Anything is better than that Jack White/Alicia Keys rubbish

    by seasider

    Adele could pull it off with the right song but there are other artists out there who I'd like to see take on a Bond theme.

    Justin Bieber - For your braces only

    by Gorgomel

  • The credit sequence for Quantum of Solace was disappointing and dull, which could also be said for the rest of the movie. Casino Royale is in my top 3 fav Bond movies (From Russia With Love, Goldeneye, Casino Royale).

  • Because drug dealers are authentic, caring people who can see the real beauty in the world. And you're just a piece of shit middle class heterosexual white person.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 2:13 a.m. CST

    by Cobra--Kai

    You know my name was a powerful rock ballad, but it also sounded GREAT in orchestral form without lyrics. You can't say that for Another Way To Die. I quite like The White Stripes so I didnt mind its broken-up percussion heavy styling, but the melodious quality wasn't there.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 2:33 a.m. CST

    Codename - with you on the Goldfrapp suggestion

    by Master of Zinj

    Felt Mountain has a sweeping, orchestral, filmic mood to it that would suit Bond inrcedibly well. Plus, Alison Goldfrapp has a fantastic range. Personally, I loved You Know My Name, but Another Way to Die sounded a bit too much like a piss-take (what Bond song uses the word "bling"? Seriously?). Adele is a great choice as a singer - but it does depend on the song.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 2:34 a.m. CST

    Candie Payne should do the next Bond tune

    by DonLogan

    Of course she's not mainstream so won't be chosen but her song 'I Wish I could Have Loved You More' sounds like a Bond tune should.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 2:43 a.m. CST

    George Michael....

    He really should have done a Bond theme.... And Cornel's song was very good actually.

    Anna Calvi

    by vincewhirlwind

    Super-hot young British talent, just missed out last night to PJ Harvey on winning the Mercury Music Prize. She should do the next Bond theme - her current single 'Suzanne and I' sounds like it already is a Bond theme, summoning Barry / Bassey in the best possible way.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 3:51 a.m. CST

    Can't they find good screenwriters?

    by kwisatzhaderach

    I can't think of one memorable line of dialogue from the Purvis/Wade Bond factory... how the fuck did they get the gig in the first place? The old Bond films had great screenplays and brilliant dialogue. Not anymore. And I wish we could get rid of David Arnold's shitty sub-par John Barry wannabe crap too. <p> Best Bond songs: From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice, Nobody Does It Better, For Your Eyes Only, All Time High and The Living Daylights. <p> Worst Bond songs: GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Another Way To Die. <p> Worst Bond song ever: Toss-up between Die Another Day and Another Way To Die.

  • And Sam Mendes is a writer himself, so any shit the writers might come up with will have to face a though screen process from Mendes.

    Goldfrapp

    by Ted_Naifeh

    They already missed the boat with Goldfrapp. They should have tapped them two movies ago. "Time Out from the World" off Supernature was the perfect Bond song. But now Goldfrapp is a completely different band. Meanwhile, they hired frakkin' Chris Cornell. Not to disparage the guy, but a bond song needs glamour, and glamorous he ain't.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 4:03 a.m. CST

    by Cobra--Kai

    vincewhirlwind, that Anna Calvi song is nice. Avenging Angels by Space is also worth a listen, it has a nice 007 type sound.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 4:04 a.m. CST

    Scissor Sisters

    by Ted_Naifeh

    The other perfect Bond song would have been "Land of a Thousand Words" by the Scissor Sisters. If you don't believe me, just watch the video.

    Licence To Kill, still the best

    by Ciderman

    of the post Connery bond movies. Dalton plays the character straight from the books, none of this wisecracking, gadget using nonsense, He's a mean, cold SOB out for revenge, and boy does he get it. Supremely violent, a great movie and I always felt Dalton was robbed of the chance to make more, love to have seen Goldeneye with him as 007 instead of Brosnan, I liked Brosnan but he was way, way to smooth.

  • Chris Martin could write a helluva Bond theme. Dude knows how to write a memorable track. I know Coldplay has it's haters out there but they are evolving into one of the great mainstream bands of the last decade. That's right I said it. They just release shitty singles for some reason. Their best stuff is the shit they don't release as singles. So i say Coldplay for Bond 23

  • QUANTUM OF SOLACE's song was totally unmemorable. The song was so lame, they couldn't even make an intrumental leitmotif out of it. Say what you will about "You Know My Name" song from CASINO ROYALE, but that song (which in itself is pretty good) made for a great James bond leitmotif theme which worked brillantly as an alternative James Bond music theme.

  • This is the movie that fianlyl made me completly fed up with the shaky cam technique, oth as a shooting style and as editing style. Other then that, the movie is actually good. Not as good as CASINO ROYALE, but a worthy sequel. The story was good and the acting was top notch. And the directing, while there was no action going on, was pretty solid.

  • I'm talking about acting talent here, and not merely just onscreen charisma.

    by Mr Gorilla

    I didn't really like AMERICAN BEAUTY. Sure it was better than most Hollywood dross, goes without saying, but I didn't think it was as accomplished as something like Ang Lee's THE ICE STORM. However, I saw AWAY WE GO a few months ago and I absolutely, totally loved it. Really thought it was a very, very special film, it really captured that very dramatic part of life where you transition to being a parent. I laughed, I cried, I thought. And it was so beautiful. Bravo. So I'm kind of excited about this!

    Dalton was a fine actor but:

    by Hipshot

    1) He was sexually passive in Licence to Kill (the chicks made all the moves) and only had one woman in "Living Daylights"--and she looked like the Girl Next Door, not the unbelievably hot, unattainable chicks Bond is supposed to bed. 2) He couldn't do fight choreography for shit.

    More props to Dalton

    by DannyOcean01

    Great, great Bond, criminally wasted. Brosnan also came close in parts of his movies, but was let down by horrific scripts. The praise Craig got for Casino should have gone to Dalton first because they're playing v. similar Bonds. And considering the dreck we've had in terms of title tunes, Adele's a good choice. Fairly obvious based on her popularity, but at least we're not giving Madonna another crack...or, God forbid, Rihanna or the Bieb.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 7:42 a.m. CST

    Upon seeing QoS........

    by Number9997

    ......in the theater, I hated it! However, the 2nd time around I thought it was quite good. No where near Casino Royals! Daniel Craig really owns Bond just two movies in. QoS had an excellent screenplay with sharp dialogue. We might be feeling differently if the action was edited better. I actually bought into the villain's sinister real-world plot. Go back and study the film again. The drop off from CR to QoS isn't that bad. I think Sam Mended is going to hit a homerun. Maybe one QoS can get a re-edit to make the action less choppy. I mean, fuck, that one scene where he fights M's attacker for the gun could have awesome. It was just too fucking choppy.

    number9997, yep you're right about QUANTUM. Could have been - or rather could still be - a very good movie if it were to recieve a professional re-edit of the action scenes. Sadly however, the Bond theatrical cuts are the ONLY cuts. Never known a Bond dvd to be a 'directors cut' or to include so much as a sniff of a deleted scene. As it is, the big set pieces like Bond and the traitor agent swinging around on ropes is just an epileptic fit on screen. Truly terrible editing.

    I thought Madonna was a good choice too...

    by Phimseto

    ...and if she had taken a Dick Tracy-like approach to the material, she would have been. Instead, we got the single worst Bond opening theme of the entire franchise. The biggest tragedy for me, though, is that kd lang's outstanding "Surrender", which was written to be the theme for "Tomorrow Never Dies", was replaced by the forgettable Sheryl Crow song. The key to all good Bond songs is that the film's composer have a hand in them. "Casino Royale" did this. "Quantum of Solace" did not. The effect is noticeable.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 8:44 a.m. CST

    Alison GOLDFRAPP!

    by saintaugust

    Sure Goldfrapp's music has changed over the past few albums but Alison Goldfrapp's voice is still the same. She's got a perfect voice for a Bond titles song. Every time this subject comes up I can't think of a better singer. If you're worried about her music sounding too disco these days just get someone else to pen the song and let her sing the shit out of it...

    Gaga would be a better choice, but Adele is OK.

    by cinemixtape.com

    As for Bond themes that never were... I have a hunch that Rihanna's "Russian Roulette" was a prospective QoS theme song at some point. It's quite good, but I suspect it was a little too ballad-y. "Another Way To Die" was decent enough, but the production on the vocals left much to be desired. They should have let (made?) Jack do it on his own without Alicia Keys.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 10:01 a.m. CST

    Good call...and she's British!

    by bah

    Too many Americans doing the theme lately. Garbage is the only non-American since the Dalton era, and wouldn't you know it, it's one of the best. Tina Turner on Goldeneye is the best theme of the last 30 years, at least, but Bono and The Edge wrote it. Nothing against American singers in general, but a Bond theme should be European at least.

    They should get Bjork to do it.

    by frank

    I think Jack White’s theme could have been good if it had been more focused and less sprawling. The melody and flow of the song kept getting lost. Glad that they are even making a new Bond movie. It and The Hobbit were touch and go for a while, thanks to MGM being bankrupt. Hope the new movie is more fun than the last one.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 10:27 a.m. CST

    Another Way To Die is a good song and a solid theme.

    by blackwood

    Though, I don't disagree with Frank about it being sloppy. Still good, has a nice rough edge to it. Modern Bond themes haven't ever matched Goldeneye. Adele is fantastic choice. Bring up Amy Winehouse is cruel, because it's the best choice.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 10:34 a.m. CST

    It's not just about who plays Bond

    by Bill Binkelman

    It's just as much about (a) the villain, (b) the lead woman aka Bondgirl, and (c) the storyline. This is why I love Goldfinger so much. Goldfinger and Oddjob were both such bad asses. The plot to corner the gold market by making Fort Knox radioactive was brilliant. And you can't beat Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore. After Goldfinger, the only other decent Connery Bond effort was You Only Live Twice (I never cared much for Thunderball). On Her Majesty's Secret Service gets most of the formula right, especially with Diana Rigg in the film. It also featured one of the best scores (and, IIRC, it was the ONLY Bond movie where the main title sequence is an INSTRUMENTAL track, not a vocal one...the vocal song from the movie was the Louis Armstrong ballad "We Have All the Time in the World.") OHMSS, however, has that incredibly dated look to it. Surprisingly, Goldfinger has weathered the years much better. I thought License to Kill was pretty good, but casting Wayne Newton was a huge mistake as he was just too much of a caricature. While Dalton was a decent enough Bond, the villains were "meh." I hated how the writers made it a competition between two women at the end. Stupid. Brosnan had his moments...I thought Goldeneye was good, but really nothing much stood out for me after that. All very unmemorable. Roger Moore made ONE good Bond film, and that, of course, is Live and Let Die, but a lot of that film's success goes to Yaphet Kotto and Jane Seymour. Moore always seemed like a dandy...he was terrible at fight scenes. And he was given the most smarmy dialogue...he was always smirking. It was as if all Bond had to do was to act "suave" and that was enough. For me, the worst Bond film by far is A View to a Kill. OMG it was dreadful. I think Craig's Bond is the closest to what Ian Fleming had in mind, along with Connery's Bond in From Russia With Love. Even though I love Goldfinger, there are moments in it when Bond is just a little too "cute." It's still one of my favorite films, but Connery took some of the edge off of Bond that was present in FRWL and also in Doctor No. And if you don't think "Goldfinger" isn't one of the best Bond songs, you have no taste whatsoever. OTOH, Matt Munro's interpretation of "From Russia With Love" sounds like a Vegas lounge lizard.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 10:51 a.m. CST

    Another Way to Die

    by frankenberry

    In a way, "Another Way to Die" sounds like a poor man's "You Know My Name". But I still enjoy both.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 10:56 a.m. CST

    Fantastic choice

    by vicmackey1268

    she already sounds retro, she can definitely belt out a song and without hearing a single part of it it's already better than friggin Jack White and Alicia yelling "bang bang" at each other for 3 minutes... Torture....I think I'd rather get the rope swung at my balls than listen to that awful song again.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 10:59 a.m. CST

    The Prodigy/Liam Howlett

    by the__natural74

    I think Adele is a great choice, a true talent. But would like to see her voice paired with a producer like Liam Howlett. Some of the horns & samples used on The Prodigy's last album "Invaders Must Die" were amazing, and could give the next theme an edge while still featuring a classic voice like Adele. But maybe the most difficult challenge any artist must face when doing a 007 theme is the title. A band like A-ha did the best they could with "The Living Daylights". Keeping the Monty Norman Orchestra style horns is key, but not every title can be sung! I really liked QOS (Olga Kurylenko is one of the hottest Bond girls of all time), but you can't sing that title. "Another Way to Die" seemed forced, just like the pairing of Keys & White. You don't always get "Licence to Kill" or "For Your Eyes Only" gift wrapped for you. As far as the filming style, I'd like to see less Bourne gritty camera work too. If Dan Bradley is on as the 2nd unit director, we know what to expect.

    Gaga does bond

    by vicmackey1268

    ...I personally slaughter every single person whoever made her a star... Gaga is a freak and shouldn't even be allowed to watch a 007 movie...it was bad enough that they let Madonna act AND sing a song...if they ever let a wannabee loser with daddy issues do it...ugh... Next time Beiber crashes his car I hope it's Ryan Dunn style and Gaga is giving him road head so they both blow up.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 11:04 a.m. CST

    Here's why CR was good and QOS bad: EDITING

    by BoyNamedSue

    Stuart Baird may be a mediocre director (Nemesis, U.S. Marshals), but he is a damn fine editor. He went back to his roots with C.R. Combine him with a good director like Martin Campbell and you've got one of those rare lightnng in a bottle Bond films....Baird did not come back to edit QOS, hence the sulkiness. And editing DOES make the difference!

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 11:05 a.m. CST

    Great. So we get another "actors director" for a Bond Movie

    by Jack Desmondi

    Just like Quantum of Solace, which was a tiresome Bourne wannabee from another "Actors Director". I seriously don't understand why the Broccoli's are going in this direction with the series. Sam Medes isnt' an action/adventure movie director--so why try and shove him in that box? Jesus, there's plenty of great young talent out there who could really make an exciting Bond film.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 11:06 a.m. CST

    btw Herc, kick ass news for my morning!!!

    by vicmackey1268

    I've been waiting for anything 007 related to show up somewhere, my dad got me into it when I was little and every movie that's come out since Goldeneye we've seen opening night together...he loved Casino Royale after the horrible cheese they did with Brosnan...talk about wasted opportunity... Anyway...I remember both of us cringing at Quantum's song...and wondering why they felt the need to go Bourne with all the quick editing. Good as back to back bond marathon but alone Quantum was a major step back. Sam Mendes will hopefully bring the drama back from the original Connery's who took their time building the tension, especially against Red Grant, my #1 choice for most dangerous adversary.

    Adele's a good choice... but

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Adele's only like 22 years old, she could do a Bond song 20 years from now. We ought to be getting 007 songs from well estabished legendary singers like Joe Cocker, David Bowie, Sade, Mick Jagger, Annie Lennox, David Gilmore (Pink Floyd), Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Nick Cave, Sinéad O'Connor, Dolores O'Riordan (The Cranberries)Tom York (Radiohead), Jeff Lynne (ELO), Roger Daltry (The Who), Robert Plant (Led Zepplin), Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits), Eric Clapton, Billy Idol, AC/DC, U2, Travis or Seal. Get these type of singers to do a Bond song while there still in possession of all their powers. Aside from Adele, I wouldn't mind a Bond song from more current acts like Katie Melua, Bat For Lashes, The Killers, Joss Stone (who already did a 007 video game) or The Corrs. The singer should be someone you'd imagine Bond not immediatley clicking to silient if it happened to start playing over his Aston Martin's radio.

  • Sept. 7, 2011, 11:57 a.m. CST

    Michael Buble...

    by Trent Garnes

    I think Adele is a good choice. She's relevant and has a great voice. My number choice, though, would be Michael Buble. He could do a huge, brassy number (like Thunderball with Tom Jones) but with a modern sound. I've always thought his "Feeling Good" is an example of this. (it even has a Bondian guitar riff in the middle) To me, Buble is an obvious choice for a classy song.

    by E Feliberti

    Much as i want another BOND movie (NOW!!!), preferably as good as CASINO ROYALE, I am not sure the screenwriters and director are right for the project. I mean... Neal Purvis and Robert Wade - “The World Is Not Enough” (not BAD, but not great. A few very entertaining things, others very weak - Uneven) “Die Another Day” (one of the WORST BONDs), “Casino Royale” (AWESOME) “A Quantum of Solace” (CRAP!) ...and... John Logan - “The Time Machine” (CRAP!), “Star Trek: Nemesis” (CRAP!), “Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas” (Entertaining, but not great), “The Last Samurai” (Good, but maybe too long), “The Aviator” (Snore-fest), “Sweeney Todd” (CRAP), “Rango” (Haven't seen it, but Johnny Depp is NOT BOND). ...and finally... Sam Mendes. Mmmmmm. “American Beauty” (Good Drama), “Road to Perdition” (Fair), “Jarhead” (Bad, Anti-War CRAP), Revolutionary Road” (Boring CRAP), “Away We Go” (CRAP!) So...are these the right people to bring Bond back? I mean, I sure hope so because that's what we get this time. Still... ...A little worried.

    Bond themes Suck these days...Really..they suck.

    by conspiracy

    I for one am sick of the yawn inducing Muzak being suggested. Adele? Sting? Room Temp Winehouse? Fucking Boring. The 60's and 70's were the only good Bond themes...they were slick and sexy and timely. Naked bitches Romped slow motion, their silhouetted, unaugmented pendulous breasts bouncing and as they ran and trampolined, their firm and supple buttocks lovingly lit as some bad ass crooner belted out a tune of thinly veiled sexual innuendo. Those worked for the times and the films. But todays Bond theme, given the direction of the franchise, should have all the subtlety and aural impact of a forced Horse/Women copulation or a Mexican Cartel Beheading. Which is why LEMMY is the perfect artist. A musical Punch in your fucking little sisters face.

    best part of this thread

    All the great recommendations. Thanks everyone. A Bjork Bond theme would've been badass. I never knew that about Bachelorette. She was a global phenomenon at one time. Now just kind of an oddity. Volta was junk. Lots of awesome choices in here.

    hey bubcus, different link to video..playable in Canada.

    by intheyear2525

    don't know why anyone would upload a video to youtube and then restrict it to americans only. it's not like the copyright holder upped it and had distribution rights agreements to worry about. http://lovi.tv/video/uirgywhoka/Adele_Adele_s_21_The_Inspiration_Part_4 this link plays fine for me..

    Adele is a good choice

    by Teddy Artery

    She has a classic vocal style that will enhance the movie. I've always favored the Sean Connery Bond movies... maybe they will bring more of that timeless style back.

    I was hoping for Muse

    by Phategod2

    pretty big year for them last year, and there one of the biggest European bands and one my favs , but Adele is cool.

    Wow, and you guys are supposed to know your shit...

    by Ciderman

    Orbital captured the spy theme vibe with the awesome "The Box" a two part track on the "In Sides" album from 1996. And The Propellorheads did a masterful job with "On Her Majesties Secret Service", remixing it into 00-Heaven. David Arnold has a great ear for music, you only have to listen to the "Shaken and Stirred" remix/tribute album to the Bond themes to see how brilliant the man is. I trust that who ever is selected the song will be a good one. But Goldfrapp would all kinds of awesome-sauce!

    Massive respect for doing the WHOLE Bond filmography in food form. Great post. I particularly like You Always Eat Thrice, and for sheer ingenuity, Wontons Of Solace. Bravo sir.

    Re: Portishead & Goldfrapp

    by JAGUART

    Great choices! Here's Toni Halliday from Curve with a tune that practically sounds like a Bond Song audition; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6VrumnCaxI

    who in the hell is Goldfrappe?

    by joel007

    And for that matter who in the hell is portishead? Who is siouxsie sioux? Name me their top ten hits. Guess that's the point-- the Bond folks will want some variety of name recognition and those folks don't deliver. Goldfrappe in particular would probably do something pretty cool but they don't have much cultural relevance for anyone beyond those who follow them. Not to say Chris Cornell does either. The Bond songs that resonated had elements of timeliness and kitsch to them. Goldfinger, Live and Let Die, View to a Kill, etc... Of recent movies, the only group that even had a shot at doing a really cool Bond song was Garbage for TWINE. And even they ended up doing some overly orchestrated overly serious ode. Didn't work.

    conspiracy, I got the song, too

    by THE_CHOPPAH

    Killed By Death Come to think of it, that would make a great title for a Bond film. Better than Quantum of Solace.
