The New Bond Theme a Repeat Performance?

Annie Lennox

The James Bond theme is traditionally sung by a big-name pop star and is generally a bit ridiculous. The Quantum of Solace theme is still up in the air, as several names have come and gone in consideration. Now, there’s talk that the great Annie Lennox is in the running now, but what’s stranger is that Duran Duran is also on the docket. In case you don’t remember, Duran Duran already DID a Bond theme – the Roger Moore film A View to a Kill. Sure, Shirley Bassey did three of them – Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker – but unless you get her to do it again, we don’t need a repeat. There’s got to be someone new who could pull it off. Lennox would be ideal.
