Sir Elton John has has expressed his opinion on the 20th Bond film’s title song. He claims; “It hasn’t got a tune – James Bond themes are usually very camp and this one’s different”. Elton himself admits to being a fan of Madonna who appears opposite Pierce Brosnan, as fencing instructor, “Verity”, in Die Another Day.
In the same statement, the singer suggested; “They should have gone for somebody like Lulu and Shirley Bassey, or maybe I’m in that league.”. It’s thought that he chose to show his view on the song after composer, David Arnold, who wrote the movies’ score, gave a similar criticism just a few days ago.
Elton has been suggested to take on the task of performing a track, by Bond fans throughout the world. Perhaps, this is the man producers should look to for Bond 21. He is clearly interested, and with the help of Bond composer and fan, David Arnold, he might just be able to produce a piece of music, true to the series roots, that will impress the fans and the critics alike.
