James Bond movie themes that never were

Music News, Where Have I Heard That Song Before?

bond.gifThere’s something fascinating about albums that never came to fruition, songs that were shelved, collaborations that were too shite to be released, no? The Guardian today has a veritable dooziefest of such matters – it’s a list of songs and acts who almost, but didn’t quite, make the final cut for previous Bond themes.
And even better than that is the fact that there are links to many of them, so you can close your eyes and imagine Alice Cooper doing the theme for The Man With The Golden Gun, Blondie doing the honours for For Your Eyes Only, and – ohbloodyyes – Ace Of Base smeared all over Goldeneye.
Sadly no link to the mooted collaboration between Winehouse and Ronson, of course. Maybe one day, eh?
