After months and months and endless months of speculation about who would provide the theme song to the new Bond film, it was finally announced as an unlikely pairing of Jack White and Alicia Keys. The song, 'Another Way To Die', was premiered today by that awful Jo Whiley woman and is currently on youtube. I have put a video below but expect it to be removed by Sony BMG within, ohhh, an hour.
So, what do you think? Some morons on the interweb are honestly suggesting it doesn't sound like a Bond theme...er, let's check shall we:
- Horns? Yep.
- Inane lyrics about guns, spies and untrustworthy women? Yep.
- Slow bits and then fast bits? Yep.
- Long intro that's perfect for the credits? Yep.
- Sense of crushing disappointment? We'll see.
So it's definitely a Bond theme then. Not sure why they bothered making it a duet though. I do like the guitar sound, but if you're a fan of The White Stripes then you've heard it before. Ah well. The world keeps turning.
