Topic: James Bond Music Rescores and your favorites.

I'm an avid lover of the music of James Bond. Nearly every score in the series is great, though to be fair there are a few scores I don't like and sometimes I feel the music doesn't fit their films. I'm not trying to say I'm better or the work I don't like is inferior not at all. This is more like a theoretical what if? sort of feel. So basically to sum this thread up, What would some moments of Bond films be like with different music?

I started with Spectre. I felt some of the action music was lacking in some areas and missing that nice touch of The James Bond Theme.

Gunbarrel - I really loved the gunbarrel music in Spectre. This is a little alternate version I came up with.

Rome Car Chase (Version 1) - This rescore uses music from the Bond game 007 Everything Or Nothing.

Rome Car Chase (Version 2) - Same scene but using music from 007 Blood Stone. This sounds like something David Arnold may have done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91AVii2kO8E

Austria Plane Chase (Version 1) - Using music from 007 Everything or Nothing.

Austria Plane Chase (Version 2) - Using music from John Barry the Concert 1972

Austria Plane Chase (Version 3) - Okay I'm grasping at straws here but this was done by request. Using 007 and Death of Largo from Thunderball.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBYY81sjbrY

Train Fight - Technically this isn't a rescore as I added music to a scene that didn't originally have any save the end.  Music from Everything or Nothing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VxZiiTOHrM

Lastly I did a rescore for For Your Eyes Only. This one is short and sweet. I loved how the PTS made callbacks to OHMSS so this is my little tribute and paying even more homage to OHMSS musically.

So if there are rescores you may have possibly made or enjoy please feel free to post them here.

Brilliant work! Spectre is improved considerably without Newman's music.

I agree. Between Skyfall and Spectre (Both films I enjoy greatly), I thought Newman's music was the weakest link of both sadly.

Anyway here are some more rescores. These aren't mine but some of my favorites.
