The thing is, there aren't any Tina Turner-type famous singers these days. Who could you use?
I prefer those old style sassy Bond themes like Goldeneye and Diamonds Are Forever, or the classic sounds of For Your Eyes Only and Live and Let Die. I thought Die Another Day was the least suited to a Bond movie in the history of the series.
Even though its not a true Bond theme in that it doesn't appear at the start of any movie, I really have to mention the Moby remix of the classic Bond theme, I love that tune.
Hey Y, just saw your favourite gal Pink out of concert and not in a pop video! Boy, is she small!!! Think Kylie Minogue small!!! Maybe she would'nt make such a great villain after all...unless that is she appears as Nick Nack's lost sister!

I know they evolve and change, but look at The World Is Not Enough and Tomorrow Never Dies on how to do a "proper" modern Bond song.
The thing I really liked was how they incorporated the story into the opening credit song. That was a smart move.
Another thing about DaD was that (at the start) it showed Bond as totally human, that he put up with all that, and still managed to stroll into a hotel as if nothing happened. That was a really cool touch.
It all went pear shaped wth that car though. The theme tune and the car, and the shape-shifting nonsense. As if.
If you want to see that kind of silliness, go watch one of those Action Man videos or something. DaD at times reminded me of those corny Action Man adverts (especially that surfing bit).
Are you kidding? What does Action Man have to do with it? Action Man is a doll for boys (my brother used to have that and I organised weddings with Barbies off-topic ) I don't think it's all that unbelievable, except for the disappearing car.
Theme song was great, but that's MY opinion, and I think liking/disliking a song is subjective.
Also, about the surfers: Like it's the FIRST time a JB movie included something that cannot be done IRL Suuuure, people can jump from airplanes, get shot multiple times, knock out ALL the bad guys without any injure AND stay alive... No-one ever claimed JB is realistic
