Top Ten Music Artists We Would Have Liked to Hear Perform a James Bond ThemePetSounds This list is devoted to artists who didn't and are unlikely to. So no new musicians--there's already a list for them.
The Top Ten
Can't you just imagine Queen doing a Bond theme in their heyday? It could be stylistically similar to "Live and Let Die"--a rocker powered by Freddie's voice and piano. Think "Don't Stop Me Now" or "Under Pressure." - PetSounds
I couldn't agree more with this #1 item (it doesn't happen very often to me). - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
Speaking of "Under Pressure," Bowie could have provided an awesome glam rocker in Roger Moore's early days, a quirky experimental piece in the Pierce Brosnan era, or even a cheesy pop tune in the '80s. I guess it's technically still possible, albeit unlikely.
The theme for Quantum of Solace was a collaboration, so why not imagine him teaming up with Queen? - PetSounds
Great list, PetSounds!
David Bowie would be amazing! He'd be perfect! - Britgirl
She would have fit the mould perfectly if she'd lived long enough. - PetSounds
Hey how did I miss her? Obviously, she'd be an excellent choice. Let's bring her back... - BritgirlV 1 Comment
Morrissey doing a Bond theme is about as likely as Paul McCartney doing a Bond theme. Oh, wait... - PetSounds
This would actually work well. Morrissey has that kind of commanding voice. - IronSabbathPriest
Who wouldn't love "The Chain" as a Bond theme? - PetSounds
The timing is all wrong. Their music wouldn't have suited any of the Connery/Lazenby movies, and Jim Morrison didn't live long enough for any others. Assuming time travel is possible, I think they'd be perfect for Dalton or Craig. Although I can't imagine them working well with the musical director. - PetSounds
Jim could have had a cameo role in the film, probably a fight scene.
Indeed, the thought of Jim co-operating with a antsy Musical Director is kind of funny.
This would be... different. But I think it would be cool, too. - PetSoundsV 1 Comment
Dio had a powerful and flawless voice suitable for epic OST.
Think Holy Diver, Don't Talk To Strangers, Rainbow In The Dark.
Holy diver even has a creepy intro.
Also Evil Eyes - a song to pair with the racing scenes. James Bond had Golden Eyes, so why not a song like Evil Eyes, too? - Metal_Treasure
She reportedly already has the inside track to sing the theme to the film version of Game of Thrones, her ethereal, otherworldly voice would definitely lend itself to a Bond film depending on the script.
Done. She covered Sam Smith's "Writings on the Wall" from the Bond film "Spectre".
No doubt it would be incredible. Soulful, powerful, shaky and dark. Everything Bond. - PositronWildhawk
