007 is on his way!

New adventures of James Bond are coming soon to the cinemas. I have to say that I’m really sentimental about the series – it reminds me of my childhood (how sentimental is this?). The first movie with ‘new Bond’ surprised me a lot – it was a piece of a decent action. However, I can hardly remember its promo song. No, to be honest, I can’t remember it at all.

James Bond series provided us with many amazing songs performed by top artists like Shirley Bassey, Nancy Sinatra, Tom Jones, Louis Armstrong, Gladys Knight, Duran Duran, A-ha, Tina Turner, Garbage, Sheryl Crow and Madonna.

This time, theme song is performed by Alicia Keys and Jack White. ‘Another way to die’ has characteristic elegant vibe (brass, strings and bass guitar, that’s the key!), Jack fits perfectly, but Alicia’s hycterical moans are so annoying! It could’ve been a great theme.

Talking about great 007 themes – here are my favourites:

Garbage The world is not enough (the absolute essence of 007 themes!)

Sheryl Crow Tomorrow never dies (cool video, so early-Bondish!)

Madonna Die another day (two pop-cultural icons meet)

Tina Turner Golden eye (strong and sophisticated)

Shirley Bassey Goldfinger / Diamonds are forever (good ol’ Bond)

What are your favourites?
