    Back in early December of last year, CommanderBond.net reported that “You Know My Name”, the James Bond title song for 2006’s Casino Royale performed by Chris Cornell, had earned a nomination for the 50th annual Grammy Awards.

    Unfortunately, the 007 title tune failed the grab the award at the show, which took place today in Los Angeles. It lost to “Love You I Do” from Dreamgirls.

    “You Know My Name”, written by David Arnold and Cornell, was nominated in the Best Song Written For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media category and competed against the following four songs:

    • Falling Slowly (From Once)
      Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova, songwriters (Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova)
    • Guaranteed (From Into The Wild)
      Eddie Vedder, songwriter (Eddie Vedder)
    • Love You I Do (From Dreamgirls)
      Siedah Garrett & Henry Krieger, songwriters (Jennifer Hudson)
    • The Song Of The Heart (From Happy Feet)
      Prince Rogers Nelson, songwriter (Prince)

    This was the second nomination for Bond composer Arnold, who had previously won for 1997’s Independence Day (Best Instrumental Composition for a Film).

    Cornell, in association with Soundgarden and Audioslave, has 12 previous nominations.
