The Diary of…007?

It has been announced that since Amy Winehouse is obviously too drunk, high, completely wrecked, all of the above, ‘busy’ to possibly complete a quality James Bond theme, the producers have hired Jack White and…get this…

…Alicia Keys.

I’m officially excited again.

Unfortunately, they’re calling it “Another Way to Die” as opposed to “Quantum of Solace.” It makes sense really, since QOS isn’t really easily crowbarred into a song. But…Carole Bayer Sager did cleverly get “The Spy Who Loved Me” into “Nobody Does It Better,” the theme from the aforementioned film.

In case you are unaware…

Nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, you’re the best

I wasn’t lookin’ but somehow you found me
It tried to hide from your love light
But like heaven above me
The spy who loved me
Is keepin’ all my secrets safe tonight

And nobody does it better
Though sometimes I wish someone could
Nobody does it quite the way you do
Why’d you have to be so good?

The way that you hold me
Whenever you hold me
There’s some kind of magic inside you
That keeps me from runnin’
But just keep it comin’
How’d you learn to do the things you do?

Oh, and nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, baby, darlin’, you’re the best

Baby you’re the best
Darlin’, you’re the best
Baby you’re the best

I’m hoping they take this angle with the new one. Yippee!

  1. I wrote the chorus to Quantum of Solace but they rejected it:

    How much do you love me?
    How much will you protect me?
    Just a quantum?
    How much is that?
    Really?
    That’s bloody small…

  2. ROFL

    If…

    “His eye may be on you or me.
    Who will he bang?
    We shall see. Oh yeah!”

    …made the cut, than anything is possible really. đŸ™‚
