    I wouldn't say she can't sing either, because she clearly can. But I do think she needs better diction. Maybe she does have it, but it needs to be crisper. Perhaps she does pronounce the ends of her words, but they just get lost with all the instrumentation, so she needs to make it sound more distinct.

    It really does sound like Skyfow, Crumbows etc. Or maybe Skyfaux? That's all I can hear now.

    And I agree she should've belted it towards the end like Shirley Bassey. She tends to sing that song pretty much on the same level throughout and needs more dynamics.

    Adele's technique isn't great and her songs aren't very good imo, but she has a very good voice. She is no Florence or Hayley Williams though.

    Are you talking about that Parmore chick beacuse I don't think she is that great a singer.

    New Bond films have been pretty good for French actors with Bérénice Marlohe, Mathieu Amalric, Eva Green and Sebastien Foucan.

    She has an amazing voice is a very good singer imo. Her problem is that her bad is pretty terrible.

    All your worries will be put to rest. Craig has filmed a far better gun barrel for Skyfall.

    I never had a problem with the QoS gunbarrel. How it was shot always felt deliberate.

    This vid shows Sam filming Daniel doing the gun barrel and it looks great. And he's wearing a tie.

    Am I the only one that feels like it is kind of surreal this is only a month away now? It really feels like it is sneaking up on me.

    Yeah... what the hell is so damn special about the OHMSS theme? It has a nice orchestra but nothing I can really engage in.

    It is my groove man. I find it extremely hard to sit still when I hear it. :woot:

    Lots of power and aggression, something you just have to move your body to. It is also just extremely cool and unlike so many of the others, doesn't have a cheesy bone in its body. The best piece of music from the best score in the series.

    Another tune I find underrated: Tom Jones' Thunderball. It's big, cheesy and awesome!

    So weird that Armstrong did Bond theme. Same thing with Nancy Sinatra.

    I know that Johnny Cash and Blondie were close to do themes too.

    Blondie's one isn't bad at all, but the lyrics "For Your Eyes Only" probably came too late for Brocolli. Also maybe they liked Sheena Easton - enough to put her into the title credits itself . On one of these FYEO specials it showed how they tried to make out as if she were naked by the way they filmed her from just her shoulders. Would've been better if she were actually floating around like the other Bond girls and singing - no-one's done that before.

    There was some other FYEO song as well - can't remember who it was by, but it was similar in ballad style to Sheena Easton's song, but boring by comparison.

    Looks like Dark Raven has been proven wrong. It seems it is largely possible to get the Dalton-style pose in an actual gunbarrel.

    So I've been sitting and listening to all the 23 songs now and have tried to rank them. I've seperated them into three groups: 007-tier for the best ones, Henchmen-tier for the ones I think are just good Bond songs that gets the job done. And the Felix Leiter-tier whith the ones that I dont like. In their respective groups they can change position depending on mood and such, but for the sake of argument this is how I rank them (from best to worst)

    007-tier:
    "A View to a Kill" Duran Duran
    "For Your Eyes Only" Sheena Easton
    "GoldenEye" Tina Turner
    "You Know My Name" Chris Cornell
    "The Living Daylights" a-ha
    "You Only Live Twice" Nancy Sinatra
    "Goldfinger" Shirley Bassey
    "Skyfall" Adele
    "The James Bond Theme" Monty Norman

    Henchmen-tier
    "The Man with the Golden Gun" Lulu
    "Thunderball" Tom Jones
    "Licence to Kill" Gladys Knight
    "Die Another Day" Madonna
    "Live and Let Die" Paul McCartney & Wings
    "Diamonds Are Forever" Shirley Bassey
    "From Russia With Love" Matt Munro
    "The World Is Not Enough" Garbage

    Felix Leiter-tier
    "Tomorrow Never Dies" Sheryl Crow
    "We Have All the Time in the World" Louis Armstrong (FRWL)
    "Nobody Does It Better" Carly Simon (TSWLM)
    "Another Way to Die" Jack White feat. Alicia Keys
    "All-Time High" Rita Coolidge (OP)
    "Moonraker" Shirley Bassey

    This. It's pretty awesome.

    "We have all the time in the world" isn't the movie's theme. Its used in the movie, but it isn't the main theme for the movie.

    I have to agree, the theme for On Her Majesty's Secret Service is phenomenal. It also has a pretty sweet opening title sequence to go with it. Granted, the execution is as not perfect, but the and timeless looking as some of the earlier titles, but the martini glass and naked ladies coat of arms as the title appears is so awesome.

    I can and will! (which is what is so great about Bond, there are a lot of different things to suit different tastes.) For me, number 1 on that list should be either the Red Grant fight or the end of Goldfinger's PTS.

    Of course, you can disagree though I think its a strong choice for #1.

    Though personally, Tracy's death is #1 for me.

    Totally! Based on that video, I wonder if the title sequence will have a theme of contrasting fire and water?
