Bring back Shirley Bassey...

A clip from the new Bond movie theme is available on the BBC website:
Jack White and Alicia Keys' theme for the new James Bond movie has had its first airplay.

Radio 1 DJ Jo Whiley debuted Another Way To Die on her morning show. The track will feature in Quantum of Solace which is out on 31 October.

The song, which is the 22nd Bond theme, is driven by White's trademark fuzzy guitar riffs and thunderous drum rolls.

The pair were announced to score the track in July despite Amy Winehouse being hotly tipped for the role.

The track sees the singer trading vocals with Keys over a horn section with White singing: "Another blinger with the slick trigger finger for Her Majesty."

Keys responds with: "Another one with the golden tongue poisoning your fantasy."

Even more important than Shirley was John Barry, who wrote the best Bond songs of all. Bring back Barry!

It is a shame that they did not use Shirley Bassey Maybe next time they will wise up. Shirley is hot again recording a Best selling CD. A new James Bond Tune would have been great for her and the Movie. Wonder if she would have be willing to sing another bond theme?
