Pouring down the broadway in the rain.

Last week I was discussing the notion of Jack White doing the new Bond theme, while hurtling along the N165 in France in an Aston Martin DB8. Only kidding. It was a Toyota Corolla. I said to my sceptical pilot that White is enough of a McCartney fiend to go completely LIVE AND LET DIE on our asses. So here's something of a preview of the track, and, no, it's not McCartneyesque. In fact, it sounds like a late model Page/Bonham turnaround (hardly new territory, then), with added weak-beer John Barry pastiche sections. Anyhoo, I'll reserve judgement until I hear the full track. I'm enough of a sucker for both White and Alicia Keyes to hope they pull victory from the jaws of defeat.



*Update* Heard it on the radio this afternoon and actually liked it. It's the best Bond theme in many years, though that may be to damn it with faint praise (when was the last decent one? Nobody Does It Better in 1977?).

It's not that the Moonraker theme was a stinker but it did wobble from a constant 10 cracking themes (plus the Herb Alpert and Dusty S doing their Casino Royale bits)
This one's got plenty of special bits but i've not heard it all yet.

Loathe though I am to say it, I thought the Chris Cornell/David Arnold "joint" for Casino Royale was rather good. Or at least it worked well over that - rather good - title sequence. Pulp's Tomorrow Never Lies was nice (as was KD Lang's Tomorrow Never Dies - better than the Sheryl Crow rubbish by a factor of a lot) and I have a soft spot for The Living Daylights. Speaking of Pulp, they did a belter of a cover of All Time High from Octopussy...

I watched Octopussy the other night on't telly. It was, to my surprise, ace. Berkoff *really* plays it large though...

Main problem with Octopussy: Moore looks positively geriatric. CASINO ROYALE theme okay, bar Cornell's annoyingly histrionic vocal style.
