Casino Royale Theme leaked online

Chris Cornell’s song for Casino Royale was leaked on the internet this week after CD copies were distributed to radio stations in the US.

Titled You Know My Name is a fairly bland sing it by numbers rock ballad with hints of horns and strings in the background, the lyrics dealing with killing, gambling and chance. It’s generically Bondish, by which I mean it doesn’t feature the Bond theme, but hints at it. Maybe. While way better that Aha and Duran Duran’s efforts in the 1980s, it doesn’t seem to hold a candle to the Bond classics, but, only time will tell.

I could tell you where to find it, but due to the legal problems that might arise from me doing so I’d have to kill you immediately afterwards.

David Leigh founded The James Bond Dossier in 2002. A fan of 007 since the age of 8, he is also author of The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond. You can order a copy here if you don't own it already.
