007 : Killing You Softly With His Songs

Every couple of years or so,
I celebrate my birthday with a
Martini, shaken not stirred.

This November, Bond's Back...
and killing him softly with her song
will be Alicia Keys!!!

The new License to Kill theme ought to be as great as my favorites:
Nobody Does It Better (from The Spy Who Loved Me)
For Your Eyes Only, Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever,
Live And Let Die, and yes, A View To A Kill!!!

from the BBC:

Alicia Keys and Jack White have recorded the theme tune
for the next James Bond film.

R&B singer Keys has teamed up with
the star of rock band White Stripes for
"Another Way to Die",
the first duet in 007 theme history

The new partnership sees the slick and soulful Keys
team up with raw and bluesy rocker White.

Despite their different musical backgrounds,
both are leading figures in the US scene,
with 18 Grammy Awards between them.

Previous iconic James Bond signature tunes
have been recorded by stars including Shirley Bassey,
Duran Duran, Madonna, and Sir Paul McCartney.

Quantum of Solace,
the 22nd official film in the 007 series,
picks up from Casino Royale as the secret agent
sets out to avenge the apparent death of his lover.

The title is taken from a short story
published by Bond creator Ian Fleming in 1960.
