New Bond theme from...

07.29.2008

Once the opening scene of QUANTUM OF SOLACE is over and silhouettes of pistols and naked chicks dance across the screen for three and a half minutes, what kind of music will accompany those images?

It'll be none other than foxy Grammy-winner Alicia Keys and dapper alternarocker Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs). The new 007 tune is titled "Another Way to Die" and will be a duet (the first in Bond history), which is good -- Chris Cornell can yowl with some range, but it just doesn't feel quite as Bond without a smoky-voiced lady informing us that "Nobody does it better" or similar.

Amy Winehouse was originally set to perform the theme but has since been indisposed (i.e., is busy ingesting every substance within reach).

Now, let's please get Keys in another sexy movie role...

Extra Tidbit: Shirley Bassey has performed three Bond theme songs, but a-ha only did one. Sad news for their fan.

Nice

Keyes and White are great! I think that 'You Know My Name' was the 2nd best Bond theme to date, behind 'Live and Let Die'. Hope this one comes close. The movie looks sweet.

This clarifies plenty since this morning my local news reported the song being a duet between Alicia Keys and Jack Black. Needless to say, I was a little confused.

I'll reserve my judgment until I hear the theme. I don't particularly like Alicia Keys, but The White Stripes have good songs here and there.

*rolls eyes at a typically generic formula for a typically generic Bond theme song*

Well, I guess this means this Bond movie will be a lot more like the older ones: FUN as well as thrilling.

(Now that's a totally different kind of movie dude. lol)

"they should have gotten Guns N Roses to reform and make a kick-ass song for this."

Disappointing

Amy Winehouse would of been perfect for the Bond theme song. Pity she can't get clean. This could still be good.

Interesting combo

But I can dig it. "Another Way to Die"... Sounds pretty badass.

I dunno if they'll be able to top Chris Cornell's effort from Casino Royale (which stands as my favourite Bond theme ever) but I'll be keen to see what they come with. Especially seeing as White and Keys come from two very different musical backgrounds.

Dang...

I wish MUSE would have been the ones to do the new theme.
Oh well, it should be cool anyway.

don't forget duran duran

Anything is better than that crap Madonna did for die another day, the low point of james bond songs. And they don't have to incorporate "quantum of solstice" into the song, chris cornell didn't use "casino royale" in his if I remember correctly. I guess they could rhyme it with "James Bond is the mostest" if they wanted to use it. But there are 2 kinds of bond songs, the rock ones (live and let die) and the romance ones (for your eyes only). I'm guessing with the duet its probably the

BTW: that was the funniest extra tibit I read in a long time.

i don't see how that matters. casino royale, to my best memory, didn't have the words 'casino royale' in the song. it's always good to hear that someone of actual use to this world is doing the song.
