Tomorrow Never Dies

It's no secret that Sheryl Crow sang the unmemorable bland theme to 1999's James Bond movie 'Tomorrow Never Dies'. Yes, Brosnan hated it too!

Get the 007 luxury feeling with these two great propositions:

K.D. Lang - Surrender
David Arnold originally proposed "Surrender" as the main theme to be played during the title credits, but this was changed at the last minute in favour of Crow's theme.
Sheryl Crow’s whiny marketing strategy “Tomorrow Never Dies” holds nothing over on Lang’s end title song which should have been the movie’s theme. The Lang song bears a resemblance to Nancy Sinatra's “You Only Live Twice” with a bit of Shirley Bassey tossed in for nostalgia.

Swan Lee - Tomorrow Never Dies
Swan Lee was a Danish band featuring Pernille Rosendahl on vocals.
The band had long tried to secure a record deal with the established majors, only to be met with either indifference or a total lack of understanding of what the band was all about. This sparked a defiance in the band that resulted in the decision to release their self-financed debut on their own label, GoGo Records. The success of the album has since inspired an ever growing number of artists to follow suit.
In September 2005, it was announced that Swan Lee had broken up.

I think most of you will enjoy this Danish proposition. It really has everything to be a bold, classic-style James Bond theme song.

Watch the amazing video based on all the famous James Bond titled sequences.
