Another Way To Die- Jack White & Alicia Keys

What do you think? I really thought it could have been better in my opinion. I think it works as just a rock song, but not for a James Bond film.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

I personally think this movie will bomb. Once I saw the title being "Quantum of Solace" I started having doubts. I agree with you about the song, it fits a rock song but not a Bond movie. And the whole Coke instead of a martini thing....seriously, WTF?! The martini was essential for a James Bond movie, I think this will be a disappointing movie, but being a James Bond fan I'll go see it anyways *sighs*

It sounds like Christina Aguilera would have done a better job. Buuut I agree it's not really a James Bond song. And why is it just featuring Jack White?

Hopefully it will do badly and they will get a new Bond. I know a lot of people like him, but I just hate Daniel Craig as Bond.

It's alright but I have now realized that Jack White really needs to use another pedal other than the Big Muff.

I must say that I enjoy "You Know My Name" more that this one.

I agree, the last Bond movie wasn't very good IMO and I dislike Daniel Craig as Bond. Bring back Pierce!

it phailed, it phailed hard. I hate both of them with a passion. I prolly won't go see that movie now.

What a great song it would be if Alicia wasn't in it.
I plays guitars.

Muse should have gotten the contract for that song.

It's mediocre, but that's no surprise to me.

And Jack White is no film scorer to begin with, so whoever commissioned him is retarded.

...modes and scales are still useless.

That's because Diddy (or however the hell he says it now) sampled it in the song Come With Me on the Godzilla soundtrack.

And as i mentioned earlier, I think Garbage's World is Not Enough is the best Bond song.

I thought this was a promotional song, not the theme?

And Jack White should use production like this all the time.

There's no chance the movie will bomb. Casino Royale was the biggest Bond hit ever so the follow up will be succesful. The song is lame though, screw Jack White.
#29
The song kinda grows on you after a while... I quite like it.
It is very James Bond.

And again, metal and James Bond wouldn't quite go together.


Actually i noticed why most of you don't like the song is cuz its in horrible quality in TS's link.
It sounds pretty shit there.
Listen to the proper one here: http://www.thirdmanrecords.com/

Its in much better quality and sounds much better here...


Though the site seems to be down lately...

Wow, and I thought Chris Cornell's song was bad.

It doesn't even sound like they attempted to make it sound like a James Bond song apart from the random use of brass instruments. The girls singing is alright but the actual music just sounds bad in general.

There was a lot of poker involved, which I thought was pretty cool (surprisingly).

Bond themes are generally awful anyway...this one sure is imo.


My mind is going. I can feel it.
#36
Sounds horrible. The intro isn't fitting with the rest of the song, and its not very memorable, which a bond song should do. The last was lackluster, but quite good for the mood. This just sucks the preverbial penis. Duran Duran did the best theme
#37
You guys are just pissed off because it's not a shredding metal solo. Seriously. Can you guys ever get it through your thick ****ing skulls that the world changed?

I for one think this song is awesome. I do agree, I'd like Alicia Keys out of it. She tones down the blues element of it way too much. I've been a Bond fanatic ever since I saw Goldeneye, and I've watched them all. Daniel Craig is awesome. He's a great Bond, and I think he's just great.

Actually it would be a lolocaust if they asked John Petrucci to do a bond theme. Faces would melt worldwide

No one here is saying that the song sucks cause it doesn't have some mad shred solo all the way through it. Everyone here is smart enough to understand that that sort of thing would not work here and would not appeal to the general audience.
We are saying this song sucks because it quite simply sucks for what it is and could have been a lot better.We are saying that another artist(s) from a similar genre could have made something better.
