Bond 22 Theme Song to Be Played by... H.I.M.?


So this is weird: Yahoo! Music is stating that the Bond theme song may be played by Finnish metal band H.I.M. for the next installment, Bond 22. Apparently composers David Arnold and Don Black were rather impressed with the band's song "Wings of a Butterfly," and according to a source "They think [H.I.M. frontman Ville Valo] has just the right ear to write a classic Bond hit with them."

So if this pans out, the Bond music would probably sound harsh and heavy, which could maybe be cool, but perhaps a bit too much. Who else do you think could do some interesting things with the Bond theme song? I'd like to see what the Decemberists could do with the music, or maybe someone even quirkier like Regina Spektor.

To video for H.I.M.'s "Kiss of Dawn" to get a taste of what they're like,

I think this could work very well. Many of their songs are pretty mainstream anyway, not all that harsh and heavy. ;) They're very popular here in Germany btw (and have been so for years), especially Ville Valo.

Wayne Newton could sing the next Bond song, for all I care. I'm just excited that Daniel Craig is going to be in it again! Regina Spektor might be neat. I wonder what she would come up with. I kind of like H.I.M. I'll bet it would be interesting.

Depeche Mode, would be a great choice, very sensual lyrics and it is a good compliment to the Bond Films!
