All A-Tizzy

This tidbit was released awhile ago but so many other pressing topics (birthdays! booze! clothes!) demanded my attention that I neglected to post about it until now. That tidbit is…

Jack White and Alicia Keys have recorded the theme song for the new James Bond film, Quantum of Solace.

Allow me a moment while the heady realization that I now need to tattoo the name of this film somewhere on my body sinks in. This may not be a big deal to you, but not only do I love the James Bond movies, I low Jack White, and I, for one, am practically salivating to hear the song and see the movie.

I know Alicia Keys sings on the song as well, but she’s not really to my liking so I just hope she’s not too prominent. Don’t get me wrong, I think her voice is lovely but she just isn’t really my cup of tea.

Back to James Bond. I love James Bond. I was practically raised on James Bond. It’s funny how the heroes of your youth affect who you become and the subconscious archetypes you establish for yourself. When asked to imagine a man, that man in my mind is James Bond. He may, in fact, have been the inspiration for my delusions of spy-dom. Who can say for sure?

What I can say, however, is that I am practically effervescent at the thought of a new James Bond movie. I really like Daniel Craig as Bond and I feel like Casino Royale breathed a breath of fresh air into what was quickly becoming a stale franchise.

So, Jack White+Quantum of Solace=Erika in a tizzy. Sometimes that’s all it takes.

  1. Casino Royale = best James Bond film EVER.

    However, I will say that each James Bond movie probably works best in the context of its own time. As you said, a grittier, more “realistic,” more physical less gagdget-y James Bond is what we needed right now. Back in the 60’s it was something else.

    But I like the White Stripes a lot. And Alicia ain’t bad.

  2. -Dane, That’s a veeeery interesting point you just made there. If each film works best in the context of its time, I guess it makes sense that 60’s James Bond was all about the booze and ladies whereas the new James Bond is about the cold-blooded violence and gutwrenching loss. We seem to have gone awry somewhere. Regardless, no one went awry in having Jack White do the theme!!
