Yes, "Hamburg Break Out".

Am I correct in thinking that 'The Propellerheads' had some involvement with the track 'Backseat Driver' ?

Re: AJB live commentary on TND

I may get some flak here, but imo, TND has the absolutely worst of "Bond Girls".

First of all we have Teri Hatcher...
If you'd thought that Jinx was annoying, think again!

I haven't seen her in Superman, she was pretty unknown for me in 1997 and I immediately caught the vibe, that this woman is a total troublemaker! She played the exact same annoying role in Desperate Housewife and from everything that I've seen from her, she is exactly what she plays in Desperate Housewife!

Then we have Michelle Yeoh....
She was and still is an icon in Southeast Asia but I never found her very attractive.
I am married to a woman from Hong Kong for over 20 years, I travel the region regularly and always looking around a bit  ajb007/embarrassed  I can't understand that so many westerners find her attractive.

On the other hand, TND treats us with 2 absolutely gorgeous technically "Non-Bondgirls":

No, I'm not talking about 'Break Out'; the bit during the print press fight and the Bond theme-heavy piece used as he walks out and then dives onto the trolley, used right up until he enters Paris' hotel room.

EDIT: Ah, here's the film version of Hamburg Break Out including the fight

And here's that printworks escape cue:

Re: AJB live commentary on TND

Ah, I see what you mean now.

Re: AJB live commentary on TND

I can't find the film version of Backseat Driver anywhere though. Shame.

Re: AJB live commentary on TND

Have you tried the isolated score option on the dvd?

Or, if you're feeling rich: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tomorrow-Never … F8&me=

Re: AJB live commentary on TND

I didn't want to get into discussing the isolated score, since things are complicated enough already.

ajb007/amazed  I think I paid about £9.99 when it came out.

Gosh, I bought that at the time- complete with 'Kowloon Bay' ajb007/biggrin And like Acacia I still have both.

No film version of Backseat Driver on it though sadly. I didn't realise there was an isolated score though.

Re: AJB live commentary on TND

Look under "Commentary" to find it.
Poor phrasing on my part above, I was talking about two separate things but it read as one.

I agree on most of your assessment, HIggins. Michelle Yeoh is impressive in the action scenes, much more convincing as a fellow agent than say … Barabara Bach or Gloria Hendry. But she is less convincing as a love interest. Perhaps they should have cut the making out from the last scene?
Teri Hatcher was fun in Lois & Clark, but Monica Bellucci would have been far better as Paris Carver. But what about her role in SPECTRE? They could had Maud Adams play two different people in two of Roger's Bonds, tehy could have doen the same With Monica.
