    Very much so. I really enjoyed Chris Cornell's theme in Casino Royale, and I think this one will be just as good, if not more interesting.

    Yah, the non Alicia Keys version is here - http://cokezerobond.com

    I dont know how I feel about this theme...it's ok I guess. I do just prefer the version with Jack by himself.

    Heard it. Hate it.

    When I first heard You Know My Name, I wasn't a fan, but I didn't dislike it. Now it ranks somewhere near the top. I don't think this one ever will (but I will acknowledge it if it does improve in the standings).

    I absolutely despise the new bond song. Def the worst of them all.

    It's beyond dreadful. Real pity, as the movie looks beyond awesome. You Know My Name was actually, a superb Bond Theme. It had a hint of the Bond theme, a theatrical presence, it had a dramatic musical arc.

    This new one lacks all of them. It's just a piece of sound. Pity - there's plenty of artists out there who could pull a stunning theme out of the bag if asked.

    I like it.

    My boyfriend tells me it doesn't sound "very Bond-ish," but I wouldn't know, never seen one of the movies. :eek: Still like the song though...

    If you want a good one check out Robbie Williams' "Man for All Seasons" from Johnny English. :)

    Yes - if they recorded the sound of pigs, mating, and looped it - that would, just, be worse.

    I don't like this. I'm an on/off Keys fan too but I just don't like the sound of this one. No sir-ee :eek:

    Wait, I thought they did? It certainly sounds like your description.

    I remember You Know My Name being quite hated when Casino Royale came out, certainly among my friends. However now, it's quite the opposite. This will grow on people.

    voices don't go together at all... it sure won't become a "classic" like "goldeneye" "diamonds are forever","goldfinger","live and let die","the spy who loved me" etc. which are instantly rememberable

    this will be more like the theme song to "the world is not enough"

    I like it. By the look of the film trailer I think it will 'fit' well too, the main aim after all.

    I still hate You Know My Name.
    Eurgh.

    Awesome title animation graphics sequence. Mute it and play Radiohead - Big Boots over the top.

    I'm just getting a cycled loop on that JW only version. I like the background beat and melody, which is rather gritty, but I've heard the song and don't think it's great. It may be better depending on how it fits into the film and what the tone is following the initial scene.

    I hate it. I love Keys, never heard of White. But I really really hate the song.:(

    I had my sister, brother, and my roommate take a listen to it. Everyone (including myself) thought it was very bad. I mean really, why would they say... you know that sounds good, let's put it in a $150 million+ movie. I also do not like the recent trend of not including the title of the Bond movies in the song.
