"Another Way To Die" - Jack White & Alicia Keys

Some radio station played it. Well, 1:48 minutes of it:

The video was shot on September 6th in Toronto and will be released in October, I think.

confused

it's not really a james bond tune now is it. i like the instrumental
track and the arrangement but the vocal track is just a mess esp on
that carwreck of a chorus. ewww.

nice as a freaked out album track for either one of them but horrible
for a bond leading tune. suckers should have sat out the wait and got
back to amy and ronson.

the last real memorable bond song imo is tina turner's "golden eye".
all the ones that followed were more like promotional tools for the
recording artist and had little to add to/to do with the movie.

i loved madonna's "die another day" but i'm still not sure if it's a
suitable bond song. the song garbage did was pretty good too i guess

There you go...Madonna's Die Another Day is a good example of bringing a newer tech sound to an old Bond formula....That was the last Madonna song I really got into. Golden Eye is an excellent song as well. Reminds me I gotta get my Tina Turner tickets.

Yeah, I agree. Replace the vocals with something like a lead trumpet / sax for the movie's titles and you could have something there.

I think I like it nod

This maybe the ONLY intersting thing Alicia Keys did in her entire boring music career. This is as good as it gets in her case, folks.

I think the basic idea /it was probably the bassline) is great and sounds James Bond-esque. But the actual melody is a bit boring too hip hop for my taste.
I hated Die Another Day. It's such an horrible song with a bad melody and all.

Okay, I like the song but it's lacking the spark of a Bond theme

The music is great, but there voices sound off, and even a bit weak

Video's kinda cool though






I'm a fan of both artists, but I really wish they'd try again and just take this back lol

I mean its okay, but thats all
If you will, so will I

For some reason I thought my not liking this meant I wasn't "enlightened" lol
