50 years ago...

...at London première of Dr. No, Sean Connery uttered on screen "Bond. James Bond." for the very first time.

Now, seven Bonds and twenty three movies later, longest and most successful series in the history of cinema, Bond stops drinking Martini in favour of beer - no doubt bought by Merkel :twisted:

Certainly feels more like a 'classic' Bond tune than the last two. Good thing or bad?

Really? I thought 'You know my name' was quite good as a Bond theme. This sounds good to me, but I tend to find the better bond themes are the ones that not only get the elements of the Bond main theme worked in, but also the trumpets/brass section. This is half way there but I don't think it (the music) will be memorable.

I also thought You Know My Name was a good Bond theme. Its nice to see them adding Q Branch back into the franchise I just hope they leave the cheese behind and keep the series on the track its been on.

Fantastic bond theme. Bested only by Sir Paul McCartney and with Duran Duran as a close third i'd say. Adele's voice is haunting.

Well, James Bond is a walking talking Dos Equis commercial, so when he DOES drink beer...
"The 4th Earl of Hereford led the fight on the bridge, but he and his men were caught in the arrow fire. Then one of de Harclay's pikemen, concealed beneath the bridge, thrust upwards between the planks and skewered the Earl of Hereford through the anus, twisting the head of the iron pike into his intestines. His dying screams turned the advance into a panic."'
