Very strong. Every element is precise, tense, lean and efficient. Tina Turner is more hushed than Shirley Bassey, but also far wilder in her performance.
Rather than aiming for the powerhouse deliveries of Tom Jones and Shirley Bassey before her, Sinatra uses an unaffected tone to her advantage, a cool and detached new vocal colour in the Bond arsenal which was rarely bettered.
The arrangement beneath it too is gentle, graceful and nuanced, with barely a hint of the brassy excess for which the franchise was becoming known.
Shirley, John, we salute your restraint. The latest Bond instalment, No Time to Die , is due to be released on 8 April , with Billie Eilish singing the title theme.

It was the most successful Bond song for its time, reaching a peak of 11 on the charts and sticking around the Top for 19 weeks.
Despite its enduring legacy, it originally charted quite low, reaching a peak of 38 and sticking around the Top for six weeks. Instead, Paul McCartney was asked to write the song.
Along with then-wife Linda, they wrote and recorded the song with their band Wings. Lulu had something to shout about with her contribution to Bond canon — but sadly the song made little noise.
It really just sounds like a sad Sam Smith ballad. From Russia With Love is the second James Bond movie, and the first with an original song composed for the credits—although the opening credits went with a short acoustic rendition, with Matt Monro's vocal track playing over the end credits.
It's a nice song, but not a standout. It's really shocking that Adele's track was the first Bond theme to win an Oscar for Best Original Song.
Is it good? Yeah, I suppose. Years later, it feels like the song is overpowered by Adele herself, who at the time was coasting on the success of her record-breaking album Look, I get that it's fun and dancey and very Duran Duran, but I still have to say it's a missed opportunity not having A View to a Kill co-star Grace Jones singing this one.
Sheryl Crow is certainly an odd choice for a Bond song, especially since it doesn't really capture her general vibe as a solo artist the dripping strings do, however, bring to mind Bobbie Genty's "Ode to Billie Joe," a song Crow later covered.
But she nails the sultry vocals with a particularly '90s ennui. You get the sense that Crow doesn't really care either way what happens tomorrow.
Sure, it has all of the trappings of a treacly '80s love song the production is bloated with keyboards and backing vocals , but Knight still makes it sexy—and the video proves she can pull of a tux pretty well.
Jack White and Alicia Keyes's duet is the only two-hander in the film franchise, and the Quantum of Solace theme is one of the good true rock songs in the Bond catalog.
It's a great mix of White's goth-adjacent rock and Keyes's soulful voice. It works a lot better in practice than one would expect, but it's not exactly the most memorable Bond tune.
Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson has the perfect voice for a Bond song, and "The World Is Not Enough" is one of the better-case scenarios when it comes to blending the typical Bond vibe with a rock band.
It's unfortunate, however, that—much like the film it represents—it's not exactly a standout in the franchise.
Tina Turner is a perfect choice for a bond theme song, and this one that accompanied Pierce Brosnan's debut as is slinky and sexy and reminiscent of Shirley Bassey's three songs.
While Turner's vocals aren't as powerful as Bassey's, her instrument blends well with the big orchestrations.
And that it's both reminiscent of a classic Bond tune while also standing out as a '90s sex jam makes it the perfect combination.
There's a reason this one feels like an outlier among the other Bond tunes: While it was written by Bond composer John Barry, it wasn't used in the opening credits of On Her Majesty's Secret Service —which is often the most overlooked Bond film since it's the only one that starred actor George Lazenby.
This song feels more like a standard than any of the rest thanks to Louis Armstrong's iconic vocals. This might be a controversial placement, but I stand by it.
In this case, he has established what can be called the "suspense motif", which is a descending, often repetitive four-note motif that can be heard in all of the Bond films he has scored.
This motif can be heard in:. The largest contributions to the Bond films, save for the " James Bond Theme ", are works from John Barry.
In addition to his uncredited contribution to Dr. No , Barry composed eleven Bond soundtracks and is credited with the creation of " " dominated by brass and percussion and the popular orchestral theme from On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Next to Barry, David Arnold is the series' most regular composer. He composed the scores for five Bond films: Tomorrow Never Dies through Quantum of Solace.
His Barry-esque orchestrations combined with electronic rhythm elements gave the Pierce Brosnan era its musical identity. Arnold was essentially Barry's anointed successor, Barry having recommended Arnold to Barbara Broccoli when she took over the Bond films from her father Albert R.
Each of these composed for only one Bond film, with the exception of Newman. The departures from John Barry had various causes; sometimes Barry declined in order to avoid paying double income tax—US and UK.
Barry died in Sometimes the director of a Bond film had worked with the composer of his choice on other films — the latter happened to David Arnold with Skyfall and Spectre.
The " James Bond Theme " is the main theme for Dr. No , and has featured in all the Eon Productions Bond films in different versions.
The theme has also featured on the gun barrel sequences at the beginning of the films. The original theme was written by Monty Norman , and was performed by John Barry and his orchestra in In the opening credits of Dr.
No , two other pieces were played: an untitled bongo interlude and a Calypso -flavored rendition of " Three Blind Mice ", titled "Kingston Calypso".
Due to this, Dr. No is the only film to have more than one opening theme. The "James Bond Theme" reached No. The opening credits of From Russia with Love were accompanied by an instrumental version of the main theme, arranged by John Barry and written by Lionel Bart.
A single by The John Barry Orchestra reached No. At the film's end, a vocal version by English singer Matt Monro is heard.
This song spent 13 weeks in the U. Goldfinger was the third soundtrack composed by John Barry , and this time the theme song had lyrics written by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse.
The soundtrack reached No. Welsh singer Shirley Bassey is the only singer to perform more than one Bond theme — she recorded the themes to Goldfinger , Diamonds Are Forever , and Moonraker.
Bassey also recorded her own versions of "Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" for Thunderball and it was rumoured that "No Good About Goodbye" was intended for Quantum of Solace , however David Arnold said 'No Good About Goodbye' was never intended as a Bond song.
Paul McCartney 's performance of " Live and Let Die " was the first Bond theme song to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song ; it reached No.
It was not until the Oscars that a Bond theme song finally won the Academy Award for Best Original Song , the theme song from Skyfall by Adele.
Thomas Newman 's score also got the first nomination for Academy Award for Best Original Score in the series since Hamlisch's own for The Spy Who Loved Me , while winning the Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media.
Adele's song also won the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media. Duran Duran and John Barry 's " A View To A Kill " topped the singles charts in the U.
Billboard Hot , the only Bond theme to hit No. Several of the later films have alternative theme songs, often during the closing credits.
The Living Daylights featured The Pretenders performing "If There Was a Man," composed by John Barry with Chrissie Hynde.
Licence to Kill has " If You Asked Me To " sung by Patti Labelle. Tomorrow Never Dies included k. The "Surrender" theme is heard throughout the score while the melody of Sheryl Crow's song is not used again during the film.
This hearkens back to the Thunderball soundtrack, where Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was originally proposed as the opening credits music, only to be replaced by the eponymous title track as sung by Tom Jones.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service featured an instrumental theme tune, something which remains unique amongst the post- From Russia with Love films, and included a vocal theme in the form of Louis Armstrong 's performance of " We Have All the Time in the World ", written by John Barry and Hal David.
A number of Bond films include one or more additional songs in the soundtrack. Some of these pieces of music, such as " We Have All the Time in the World " by Louis Armstrong , have gone on to become as well known as the main themes, while other songs remain exclusively linked to the film in which they appear.
