A new Bond movie fuels years of speculation. What familiar faces from MI6 will return? Then, whenever a James Bond nears the end of his run, practically every British actor under the sun is rumored to be contending for the big role. For any performer, recording a Bond tune guarantees a spot in music history. Bond movies can be deeply, wonderfully cheesy. Daniel Craig's first outing as was a hard reboot for the series, but the Casino Royale theme song by Chris Cornell didn't match the film's bold new vision for the globetrotting spy.
Instead of offering a memorable Bond song, we got what sounds like a forgettable track from a late '90s grunge rock compilation of theme song covers. Tom Jones seems like the perfect vocalist for a James Bond tune. Coming ofnthe heels of 's Goldfinger which introduced the opening credits song, sung by Shirley BasseyThunderball put another Welsh singer—this time a man—behind the mic. But it simply sounds like a rehash of its predecessor, an unremarkable ballad about a man who strikes "like thunderball," which doesn't actually make any sense.
Lulu's pop stylings made her a blue-eyed soul icon, and her biggest hits are peppy and vibrant. This theme song, however, is clunky, jarring, and ultimately pretty stupid. Maybe Madonna should have had her shot at a James Bond tune when she was an up-and-coming '80s pop star. It's Autotuned to hell, and actually has the singer inexplicably purring, "Sigmund Freud: Analyze this.
Don't you sort of wish David Bowie had recorded a James Bond theme? I get the feeling that the Bond producers had the same dream, but they couldn't book him for the gig and instead got Here's another song in the catalog that takes all of the Bond cliches: big orchestra with swooning strings, a catchy tempo, and a big and bold vocal performance from Shirley Bassey.
This particular combo, however, is mostly unremarkable. From the most recent film in the series, the generally mediocre SpectreSam Smith's Oscar-winning tune is, well, just fine. It really just sounds like a sad Sam Smith ballad. From Russia With Love is the second James Bond movie, and the first with an original song composed for the credits—although the opening credits went with a short acoustic rendition, with Matt Monro's vocal track playing over the end credits.
It's a nice song, but not a standout. Is it good? Yeah, I suppose. Years later, it feels like the song is overpowered by Adele herself, who at the time was coasting on the success of her record-breaking album Look, I get that it's fun and dancey and very Duran Duran, but I still have to say it's a missed opportunity not having A View to a Kill co-star Grace Jones singing this one. Sheryl Crow is certainly an odd choice for a Bond song, especially since it doesn't really capture her general vibe as a solo artist the dripping strings do, however, bring to mind Bobbie Genty's "Ode to Billie Joe," a song Crow later covered.
But she nails the sultry vocals with a particularly '90s ennui. You get the sense that Crow doesn't really care either way what happens tomorrow. Sure, it has all of the trappings of a treacly '80s love song the production is bloated with keyboards and backing vocalsbut Knight still makes it sexy—and the video proves she can pull of a tux pretty well.
Jack White and Alicia Keyes's duet is the only two-hander in the film franchise, and the Quantum of Solace theme is one of the good true rock songs in the Bond catalog. It's a great mix of White's goth-adjacent rock and Keyes's soulful voice. It works a lot better in practice than one would expect, but it's not exactly the most memorable Bond tune. Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson has the perfect voice for a Bond song, and "The World Is Not Enough" is one of the better-case scenarios when it comes to blending the typical Bond vibe with a rock band.
It's unfortunate, however, that—much like the film it represents—it's not exactly a standout in the franchise. Tina Turner is a perfect choice for a bond theme song, and this one that accompanied Pierce Brosnan's debut as is slinky and sexy and reminiscent of Shirley Bassey's three songs.
While Turner's vocals aren't as powerful as Bassey's, her instrument blends well with the big orchestrations. And that it's both reminiscent of a classic Bond tune while also standing out as a '90s sex jam makes it the perfect combination. There's a reason this one feels like an outlier among the other Bond tunes: While it was written by Bond composer John Barry, it wasn't used in the opening credits of On Her Majesty's Secret Service —which is often the most overlooked Bond film since it's the only one that starred actor George Lazenby.Check out the schedule of upcoming live webcasts and watch on demand videos.
