Topic: Duran Duran should do Bond 24 theme

Duran Duran is the only band that got a James Bond song to number 1... Shouldn't they get another crack at a bond song? They're trying to show that they still can with songs like "Being Followed (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cs7ZYgGpU3g)" from their latest album...

Do you guys agree?

Perhaps if this was 1983, but now? Why???

"Felix Leiter, a brother from Langley."

Normally I'd agree with you BLeiter, but with Duran Duran it could work with the right song.

A lot of groups have come and gone, and have a signature song that dates them. Duran Duran don't their music still feels fresh. I would say the song would have to be relavent to the film, like You Know My Name, or Goldfinger.  Would make a nice change to bring back a popular classic group, in the same way Dame Shirley has popped up more than once in the past!

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

I have a hard time seeing that working, but I should keep an open mind. I guess I'm just used to the films coming out and having then-current acts performing the title songs. (Dame Shirley being a classic and worthy exception!)

I'd rather have more Big Ballads sung by a talented individual. Infact I play a bit of guitar myself, ...................   ajb007/wink

Come Undone was a great Bond-style theme, and would have been a good title for many a Bond film, be it DAD or SF.

But not sure their style suits the rugged Craig. And they're not having hits these days.

They had a couple off their last album...but not major hits...they could do another Bond theme and do it well...but I think their time has been and gone for that...

I may get some stick for my choice, but I think duffy would be right for the job, her voice reminds me of the 60s  ajb007/rolleyes

Why would you get "stick?"  I've always thought Duffy would be a good choice. . .

Re: Duran Duran should do Bond 24 theme

I think so too. Her singing isn't bad either!

  I think the other reason I like the idea of DD though is its been a while since a group did a Bond song.

I really don't know why I said that, I think it's old age creeping in, and the fact that I get some stick for buying her cds from the younger generation in my family, but what do they know about music. ajb007/lol

I always thought her "Rain On Your Parade" sounded like a Bond theme.  ajb007/biggrin
