The latest episode of James Bond & Friends is now available on Apple Podcasts and elsewhere.
Who should cover a Bond song?
We draft in new artists to perform cues for an imaginary ‘Shaken And Stirred’ album for the 2010s. With only our regular panelists’ suspect musical taste and Q The Music’s Warren Ringham to guide us, we make the case for some of our favourite performers to have a crack at a Bond song. Along the way Ben and David snipe each others’ picks, and we stumble on Burt Bacharach’s suspect vocal stylings, Sam Smith’s falsetto, title songs as marketing, Dennis Waterman and his theme tune complex, creepy Goldfinger, Ringo’s lost Bond theme, getting music recommendations from a computer, a musical theatre dark past, Queen’s stealth hits, live podcast research, Wolverine on vocals, and the YouTube cover artist market.
The recording took place on August 16th, 2019 in the UK, USA and Spain.
