Top 5 Artist Wish List for Next James Bond Theme Song
Though the new James Bond movie does not start filming until December ahead of an October 23, 2015 release, speculation has already begun on who should sing the next opening theme song for the film. While part of me wishes the producers could get Tupac’s hologram from Coachella 2012 to usher in a new Bond film, I can only imagine the franchise producers may make a more safe choice but that just wouldn’t be my style. Below are a list of artists that would be on a short list of musicians I would love to see tackle a new James Bond opening theme song.
5. Foo Fighters
The Foo Fighters have been around for 20 years now and seem to rock harder the older they get. Daniel Craig defied many fans’ expectations by turning James Bond into a flawed yet relentless MI6 agent who seemingly laughs in the face of danger. To me, Dave Grohl exudes this kind of confidence and would be able to translate that kind of emotion into a perfect opening song.
4. The Civil Wars
What would be a better way to bring this award-winning duo back together? The Civil Wars would be able to put together a haunting opening song that would exemplify James Bond’s dark side, hinting at thing to come in the film. The band has some great songs and I think they could really put together something great given this high-profile opportunity.
