Re: Quantum of Solace theme song revealed

I always took 'quantum of solace' to mean 'a little bit of comfort' or something like that.

Again, I'd have to pull out the short story. Maybe if I trek into my library tomorrow, I'll post the condensed definition. Make-up sex. Just go with it.

Re: Quantum of Solace theme song revealed

"Quantum" means the smallest amount of something; the study of subatomic particles and such is called quantum physics. "Solace" means, obviously, comfort.

In the short story it's used as a term to define the one thing that every human relationship needs in order to survive: a tiny amount of compassion. Once it's gone, the relationship is dead.

And because what she did to him was so heinous, he wasn't interested in make-up sex, and thus the Quantum of Solace in their relationship was extinguished.

Garbage, and it's not the official theme song, either (that's to be by Jack White and Alicia Keys).

It's not even as good as Mr. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang-sung by both Shirley Bassey and Dionne Warwick!!! Now that's a song for a James Bond movie. This is drek by a wannabe who's a 'never will be'.

So... either you really love Bond and the need to defend it, or the joke went right over your head. I'm really hoping for choice one.

How about choice three; I didn't find it very funny at all, and thought the song was in poor taste. Yes, we know that Bond looks great in a Speedo
swim trunk; yes, we know that Bond beds any woman that takes his fancy; yes, we all know that Bond does these things-but I did not find it funny, and the music sucked. That's all there is to it. Apologies to all who thought I was a little overboard, but I couldn't help it, I was repulsed.

Yes, including Garbage.

Um...for lack of a more eloquent phrase...DUH!!!

You seem to be proceeding from the false assumption that this was actually supposed to be a serious contender for the title song of the next movie, when it was never meant as anything more than a fan spoof.

Anyway, I'd highly suggest you not watch this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xc17zmeMlSI

Never thought about the "curse".

Hopefully then Jack White and Alicia Keys will vanish from public view.
