A new Bond film means new Bond girl: that’s good. But also means new Bond theme: and that’s not always good. The Quantum of Solace is the new film for the James Bond saga, and the second one with Daniel Craig as the 007 secret agent.
Another way to die is the new James Bond Theme composed by Jack White who also plays and sings the song with Alicia Keys. It’s a good song though; two unsuspected musicians playing together, unifying their skills and a good video-clip as well.
But when I was looking for it on youtube, the first video that came up was the one above; a joke-song composed and sang by British comedian Joe Cornish. Seriously, they beat is not only cool; it transmits speed and tension, all that a Bond movie needs. And the lyrics are so funny but at the same time realistic. I don’t want to underestimate White & Keys’s job, but truth is Cornish has beaten them.
A LOOK BACK
In the last Bond movies the producers tried to get some good musicians such as Madonna or Sheryl Crowl, but they weren’t successful as expected.
But, before you quit that website, do yourself a favour and please go back for just a moment to 1987 and listen the great song that A-ha composed: The living daylights. Yeah… I know it’s tacky, but it’s incredibly cool. The A-ha guys did a great job, besides it was the best of the two movies with Timothy Dalton on the role of the secret agent.
However, there will be only one with the title of the Best, and even though Tina almost did it, the crown belongs to Shirley Bassey. Enjoy it.
