The film was on again recently and although I’ll leave a review of Brosnan’s time as the main man, it’s fair to say the them tune played a key role in re-establishing the importance of the franchise. So in terms of a Bond theme tune there is something about a loud, broad voice that is needed for it. Whether it was Shirley Bassey or Gladys Knight there was something in it – so it made sense to get Ms Turner in on the job.
I enjoyed the song. Classy and brassy without slipping to cheesy tribute to some of the greats. It’s one of the best, without being the best. For the real cream of the crop watch out for the next few Bond entries same time next week!
