Song: Tomorrow Never Dies
Performed by: Sheryl Crow
A pretty good song by a popular female recording artist was made for this movie. A pretty mediocre song by a more popular female recording artist was also made for this movie. Take a wild guess which one EON decided to go with?
I don’t necessarily dislike this song by Sheryl Crow, and if k.d. Lang’s Surrender didn’t play us out over the credits I probably wouldn’t complain. But when you put the two songs on one album, I can’t help but feel they made the wrong call.
There is an incredible list of James Bond theme songs from some pretty notable names that didn’t make the cut. Maybe one day we’ll go through and rank them. For now we’re entering the phase of forgettable entries with songs that just blend together into a ball of blah.
Tune in next month for #20 on the list as we countdown the James Bond Theme Songs leading up to the release of EON Productions JAMES BOND 25.
