Did you guys see the Bond Tribute at the Oscars?? Man, I love all Bond stuff. My brother and I went to the first Bond movie that hit our town. I was 7 and can still remember it. No parents, of course. Just us 'men.' I LOVED!!!! Shirley Bassey singing Goldfinger! Wow! That gave me a chill. She's still got it. The best Bond title song ever.

I have to say I am liking the Adele Bond song, Skyfall. It does not have the volume or power, but there is something very cool about it. A fitting Bond song, I think. Has cool atmosphere. Oh, and I loved the orchestra playing down at the old Capitol Records building where the Beatles recorded. Sounded fantastic!

Missed the tribute, but do like Skyfall. If you want to see a harder twist on a classic Bond song, check out Chris Cornell's version of "You Know My Name":


Didn't we have this discussion about Bond music once before? :confused1:

At one stage it seemed like everyone had one of those Seiko 'horseshoe' digitals. I thought they were very cool, as they seemed to be one of the first digitals fully loaded with all sorts of features, including 100m WR :thumbup1:

IMO she sleepwalked through that song. Her voice still "has it", but her heart lost it. Too many dramatic pauses and next to no emotion whatever. A mere shadow of her 1964 version.
