Site of the Day: Rejected James Bond theme songs
Amy Winehouse, you may recall, was supposed to record the theme song to the upcoming Bond film Quantum of Solace. Sadly, we may never get a chance to hear what that might’ve sounded like. But Johnny Cash singing his countrified interpretation of Thunderball? Pet Shop Boys’ take on The Living Daylights? Alice Cooper (pictured) offering his version of The Man with the Golden Gun? Yes..yes..and yes. An enterprising reporter for the website of London’s Guardian has assembled a list of Bond-theme tracks that were rejected by the film studio — and even provides links to performances that can be found on YouTube. Some tracks are good, some less so; all are guaranteed to yield more than a quantum of silly enjoyment.
