007 Best Bond Songs That Aren't Actually Bond Songs
007. Madonna Frozen
And by that singer, I mean Madonna. Yes, I know she has already done a Bond Song but really Die Another Day was a mess and like the film I was mightily disappointed by the accompanying soundtrack. Not because Im a big Madonna fan, though she can sing, but because when I heard Madonna was singing the latest Bond song, I got really excited. Because I was expecting something along the lines of Frozen. This song is her Bond song. A stunning vocal. An epic orchestral accompaniment. The instrumental three minutes in is both beautiful and hauntingreminiscent of any great Bond theme. Even the video looks like it is out of a Bond film the imagery of Madonna in black robes transforming into ravens is straight out of a Bond title sequence. That being said, if youre still not convinced, head over to You Tube, or stick in your DVD/Blu Ray copy of Die Another Day, play the title sequence with the vocal muted and put on Frozen instead. Instantly a better title sequence. Shame the rest of the film was bit rubbish.
