      Bond will never be good again, will it? Hoard all unedited physical media of the 20 movies (not Craigslop) and cherish them.

    I'm not a Craiggay but for me YKNM is as good as it gets. It perfectly encompasses the tone and style of James Bond into one song.

        How is it "popslop" it has such a lyricality, romanticism and weight to it. The way the crescendo builds up and pays off is astounding. David Arnold really outdid himself. Chris' vocals near the end of the album version (don't listen to the radio pop version, only the album and film versions) are amazing.

          >David Arnold
          I hate how fricked over he got on the theme side of things. Every song he had rejected or relegated to the end credits was better than what Eon went with. He even managed to coax a mad c**t like Scott Walker out of his hermitage to record a song. He's so underrated.

            David Arnold is the best Bond composer for me personally. Hovercraft Chase, Backseat Driver, African Rundown, City of Lovers, Come In 007 Your Time Is Up, All In A Day's Work, Elektra's Theme. Outstanding movie scores. Frick EON for replacing him with absolute hacks like Hans Zimmer. If he and Campbell aren't brought back for Bond 26, it's fricking over.

              Infuriating. He seems to be the only person recently involved to know exactly what a Bond theme is supposed to be and has full respect for the series heritage.

                Exactly why he was shown the door, same with Campbell. He stuck on despite Craig's casting and made two great scores with CR and QoS but was shafted for Skyfall for some generic Oscar Bait composer by Craig and his massive gay ego.

      A redpill any real Bond fan knows is that male singers have made better and more memorable Bond themes. Tom Jones, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran, a-Ha, Chris Cornell. Sam Smith is an outlier but he's a gay. The males have always made the truly outstanding Bond themes in my eyes. We need a rock Bond theme by a male artist for Bond 26. Arctic Monkeys would be the logical choice.

        I'd mostly agree, although I'd say Shirley Bassey is THE voice of Bond.

          Connery's Bond for sure which is why bringing her back for Moore and then Craig felt hollow. But yeah, it's indisputable that Bond's peak was the 60's legendary golden run of those 5 movies.

    I'm not so big on that 'lounge' era the Moore themes went through. Great songs in their own right but I prefer a more bombastic theme that repeats through the action scenes rather than the romantic ones.

    He's the best Bond and ultimate Bond. You can put him in any movie, be it Moonraker or Licence to Kill, and he'd fit like a glove. Christopher Lee said it, Cubby wanted him for nearly 14 years, he was thought of as Bond immediately when he broke into Hollywood and his movies saved the character from irrelevancy.

    >Surrender by K.D Lang

    Has to be the best Bond theme that never was. It was supposed to be the main theme in the opening credits and the entire score for TND was based on it but it was changed last minute for some FOTM muttamerican singer who was having her 15 minutes of fame. Yes, the singer was some dyke but the song was too good because of David Arnold.

      His QoS entry is a similar situation. Although apparently it wasn't finished in time to be considered. Maybe a scheduling conflict with Bassey of was shelved when Amy Winehouse was confirmed. Imagine if he had got Shirley on board to do Surrender. It would have sounded incredible.

        He's still active and doing scores. If the rumours of Bond 26 being a Brosnan nostalgiafest are true, Arnold needs to come back. Campbell too. Bring the whole lot back.

          Campbell directed two of the best modern Bond films, but he also directed Green Lantern. I bet Barbra Broccoli fricks it up somehow with her stupid feminist meddling.

            He just took the capeshit check, doesn't mean much. He then made one of the best movies in the past 20 years, The Foreigner with Pierce. He's 80 but still has it. Him finishing off a Bond reboot trilogy with ATJ (probable Bond actor) would be kino.

              Campbell should never have been hired for Green Lantern in the first place. His strengths lie in directing practical action movies and GL was a cgi nightmare. Mask of Zorro is the most soulful blockbuster of the 90s.

              I don't think the problem with Green Lantern was Campbell, I'm just saying at the end of the day, a good director attached to a film means nothing when you've got morons like Barbra Broccoli messing with the script with her misandric fantasies and EDI quotas.

        What an amazing song. I doubt Amy Winehouse would've made it better than Shirley Bassey but it would've been interesting. Quantum of Solace could've been massive if the writer's strike didn't happen.

      Based Daltonbro. I've got to say, the only thing that keeps LTK from being a perfect Bond movie for me is the Gladys Knight song. It's not outright terrible, but it's kind of generic and it goes on for about a minute too long.

    The part where he jumps off the cliff and the Union Jack parachute opens and how it transitions into Nobody Does It Better is the exact monent I got hooked on Bond for life.

    Tina Turner belting out Goldeneye with all that cold war iconography was certified kino. Definitely top 5 material.

    The lyrics are kind of gay if you imagine they're written from the perspective of Trevelyan though.
