    What? No. I'm talking about the title song being the "James Bond" Theme.

    Basically something similar to "Dr.No"

    Bond films have become so slick and polished over the years it's rather odd seeing the comparative rawness and simplicity of the original and early efforts.

    Yeah I'll be amazed if the gun barrel isn't back at the start.

    The sound effect when the gun barrell opens is rather funny, like it was from a spoof.

    I'll wait till I hear an official announcement before I start rejoicing.

    Still no official announcement...

    Hopefully they won't blindside us and suddenly announce it's Cheryl Cole :scream:

    To be fair to Cheryl, she didn't kill the woman :lol:

    Its amazing how people can be reinvented/repackaged. Nasty little thug to the nation's sweetheart...although I suspect she's probably neither underneath.

    ^True. Few people are anything other than shades of grey.

    Wonder if anyone is bored and/ or skilled enough to edit the toilet scene from Casino Royale to insert Cheryl over Daniel Craig ...

    what a horrifying thought...

    Or someone could edit the soundtrack of Austin Powers over the top of it.

    "Who does number 2 work for?"

    Not Skyfall related, but as this seems to be our current Bond thread...
    Well, I'm *trying* to enjoy the James Bond concert on the BBC Red Button, hosted by Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo, but their total inability to get any fucking fact right is really making it a chore... (FYEO was 1981, not 83, City Of Lovers was not the "title theme" for Casino Royale, FRWL was 63 not 65, etc etc ad infinitum.) I used to think Kermode knew stuff about film, but he's totally blown all respect I had for him here. What a clusterfuck.

    When I look at that banner with Ralph Fiennes, it makes me think it's confirmation that he will be the new "M".

    I dunno, you might be reading that too literally. It could easily be said that every Bond movie has a song at the beginning.

    Yeah, either he's a new M, or else he's actually the villain and Bardem is his henchman!

    I'm midway listening through the podcast. I understand it's probably a licencing issue but hearing just the opening and closing bars of the music is damn annoying, and they don't even explain what before hand.

    Funniest fail for me so far is when they go to interview one of the orchestra who says "You expect me to talk?" and it goes right over Mayo's head...
