  1. Title Song Performers of the Brosnan Era

    Tina Turner

    Tina Turner

    Six years after the release of Licence To Kill, James Bond returned to the big screen in 1995’s GoldenEye. Pierce Brosnan donned the tuxedo and Tina Turner performed the title song that was written by Bono and The Edge of the band, U2. This superb song complements Danny Kleinman’s title sequence very nicely. Eric Serra’s score for the film is different but fits the film very well.

    Garbage

    Garbage

    James Bond returned two years later in 1999’s The World Is Not Enough. Garbage performed the title song which was written by Don Black. This is the first time a rock band had performed a title song since a-ha in 1987’s The Living Daylights. Danny Kleinman and David Arnold both returned.

    Madonna

    Madonna

    Pierce Brosnan makes his fourth and last appearance as James Bond in 2002’s Die Another Day. Madonna performed the title song that she wrote herself along with Mirwais Ahmadzaï. Not only did she perform the song but she also got a cameo in the film. She plays Verity, a fencing instructor, at Blades Club. Let’s just say Madonna’s singing ability is much better than her acting ability. This techno-pulsed song worked well with Danny Kleinman’s unique title sequence. David Arnold also returned to deliver another great score.
