Moonraker

Found this sweet-ass video of the opening titles of Moonraker, but using the disco-fied version that plays over the end credits.  I’ve always preferred Bassey’s lusty disco take to her melodramatic, pointless slow version.  The MOST underrated James Bond theme, IMHO.

  1. I have a Bond Theme Theory:

    Any band that does a Bond theme will have their career implode within 6 months after the film’s release.

    Now, there are exceptions (which make it a theory): Madonna, Bassey (but SharkBoy argues that she’s never REALLY made a comeback with the Propellerheads), Duran Duran (again, sort of…), Wings (again, again, sort of)

    Proof: Garbage, A-ha, Whoever the fuck did Casino Royale, Sheena Easton (arguably because she leeched onto Prince), Nancy Sanatra, Tina Turner (on a career slide comeback), Tom Jones (banished to Las Vegas lounges), Lulu (sleeping on the subway, she is!), Carly Simon (someone should have done it better).

    I have no clue where to stick Sheryl Crow…

  3. Jeez…I heard you the first time! 😉 lol

    I would agree with your theory, sir. However, I put it to you…

    …who cares? Bond RULES! lol

    Madonna is an exception. Duran Durna DID come back to big popularity.

    A lot of them had dead careers prior to Bond – Lulu for example, Rite Coolidge, a-Ha, etc.

    But yeah, you’re right.

  4. Simu-post !! I win!

    I love all the Bond themes and movies, just a pop culture twitch.
