TW: Here’s a classic Bond Theme, this is amazing, this is a great one, Sheryl Crow, Tomorrow Never Dies. There was also a really good song titled Tomorrow Never Lies that Pulp made and put forward for the film. Didn’t get chosen but it was a bside around the same time. It’s a great song if you can hunt that down. Sheryl Crow, this is among my favourites.

TW: I’ve sneakily saved my personal two favourite Bond Themes for the last 10 minutes of this hour… (Plays Gladys Knight, Licence To Kill) After playing Carly Simon, Nobody Does It Better: Whilst that is a fantastic song, no doubt one of the best, there’s one song which bizarrely people in England associate more with a Guinness advert than with a Bond Theme but Bond Theme it was and this is my fave. Louis Armstrong (We Have All The Time In The World)
