I'd put that OHMSS tune right up there, too. It'll probably give Mayday kittens but i also like the remix by The Propellerheads.


Is that on the David Arnold album Shaken and Stirred and lasts about 10 minutes? If so I've got that too, and I love it!

Yeah, that's the one. I got the single first.

A couple of decent covers on that David Arnold album.

well, yes we can agree that OHMSS is the best. It's pure Bond.

And the remix I don't mind...I have this edited version which is more the theme rather then the bits where we get some of You Only Live Twice's "Space March". Anything OHMSS usually is a plus in my book. :)

Speaking of the Bond song, there was an article in the paper today which pretty much sums some of what was said here up.

Interesting. I remember St Etienne and The Cardigans being mentioned at the time of TND. But I quite like the Sheryl Crow theme. I think that single was the first multimedia CD that i ever bought.

Unnecessary dig about Lazenby in the aticle. Mind, i wouldn't have remembered the author from St Etienne - i only remember Sarah Cracknell.

People say Brosnan's fair game now about his Bond, how bad it was [the general view of some] but Lazenby's always been fair game and so long has he been so that writers almost feel that if they don't have a dig then it's not a proper piece of Bond writing.

Everyone seems to get criticised apart from Connery - just because they're not Sean Connery if nothing else.

Indeed. As I usually say to people when I say Dalton is my favourite Bond or OHMSS is my favourite film. "All because Connery's the first doesn't make him the best."

I mean...well, I've got nothing beyond that.

just saw this, though a little surprising on the frontpage of the BBC news site but there it is. A shame I guess, never good in most cases divorce. I recall him talking to someone about his kids at the signing..."Keep you awake at night, I can tell you."

I'm sure things will be fine for Lazenby, and indeed Miss Shriver.

a little bit more on Lazenby's recent troubles

Australias's James Bond, George Lazenby, says he wants to avoid a bitter public battle with his tennis star wife Pam Shriver over their multi-million-dollar fortune and custody of their three young children.

The 007 star has revealed he was shocked and surprised when he learned his wife wanted a divorce after six years of marriage.

Lazenby's spokesman, Michael Sands, said the actor was served with divorce papers after returning to Los Angeles a week ago from a trip to Australia to visit his elderly mother.

"After he got off the plane he was served with the papers and told he had to appear in court the next day," Mr Sands said yesterday. "He did not know it was coming. He is totally devastated."

Shriver, a US tennis star in the 1980s before a career as a commentator, cited "irreconcilable differences" in her court papers, and has sought sole custody of the couple's three children, George, 4, and twins Kate and Sam, 2.

Lazenby, 68, is also seeking sole legal and physical custody.

LA Metropolitan Court commissioner Alan Rubin granted Shriver temporary custody after a hearing last Thursday morning.

Mr Rubin granted Lazenby supervised visits three times a week before a hearing on August 25 to discuss custody arrangements and a temporary restraining order against the actor.

Until Shriver filed for divorce last week, the couple shared a luxury home in the LA suburb of Brentwood, where their celebrity neighbours included Naomi Watts, Reese Witherspoon, Jim Carrey, Tobey Maguire and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Shriver, 46, is living with the couple's children in the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home, which they bought in 2003 for $3.2 million.

Lazenby, best known for his one-movie stint as 007 in On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969, has temporarily moved into a guestroom at the nearby home of friends.

The couple, who were married in 2002, have several luxury homes around the world, including a $1.6 million estate in Maryland.

Mr Sands, who has been a close friend of Lazenby for more than 30 years, said the actor was upset by allegations in Shriver's court papers that the actor was an alcoholic and an unfit father.

"These allegations are totally unfounded, and George is so sad and hurt and broken up over it," Mr Sands said.

"Anyone can make allegations to get temporary (custody) orders. George is squeaky clean -- there are no skeletons in his closet.

"He is a great dad and is very hands-on with the kids, putting them to bed, feeding them and spending time with them.

"He's retired, while Pam is out of town 60 days a year commentating, so he looks after them."

Shriver's lawyers are expected to use Lazenby's age -- he will turn 69 next month -- in their arguments that he should not be given custody.

Mr Sands, who was also a spokesman for Kevin Federline in his divorce from pop star Britney Spears, said he hoped Lazenby's age would not feature in the case.

"Pam didn't care about his age when they had the kids, so she shouldn't now," he said.

"George wants full custody of the children, but he also wants Pam involved in bringing up the kids.

"They are talking and they are amicable."

Lazenby said last year he wanted his children to grow up in Australia.

He was previously married to US publishing heiress Christina Gannett, divorcing in 1995 after 24 years of marriage.

Their son, Zachary, died from brain cancer in 1994 when he was 20.

Lazenby also has an adult daughter Melanie, 34, from his marriage to Ms Gannett.

Shriver's first husband, Joe Shapiro, a former Walt Disney company lawyer, died in 1999.

That's a great picture of him. He's not one of my favourites either, but you must give him credit; he's a one-of-a-kind.

Indiana Jones was the clincher for me.

20 yrs since Goldfinger died...... :evil:

Seems like a viscious attempt of Lazenbys wife to extort money from him , nothing uncommon in Hollywood (example : Hulk Hogans wife....nuff said !)

Twenty years since Gert Frobe died. Well, RIP.

Lazenby...just mentioning that name in Bond circles is enough to get a debate going for days...the divorce case isn't helping that.

Damn annoying is what it is. Curses. Unfortunately advertising is what Bond is largely used for now.
