      Its got to be Muse! With Matt Bellamy's vocals and an Orchestra behind him. They were made to do a Bond theme.

      I thought Chris Cornells effort was in keeping with the spirit of the series, cheesy but catchy and lets face it every non-Bassey Bond theme song is bloody awful.

      List of great bands but absolutely none of them right for Bond. So who doesthat leave us with? Why Allison Goldfrapp of course. Listen to pretty much anything from Felt Mountain and it just screams I AM A JAMES BOND ANTHEM.

      @AllStarAlun Good shout with Goldfrapp! 'Lovely Head' is very Bond... Hurts could be interesting, too. It's the Eurovision thing, though. There's no reason why a Bond theme tune has to be cheesy - why not try to make it a great song in its own right? Everyone on this list could do that.

      Personally I liked the Alicia Keys/Jack White thing but hey ho... As there has never been an English female-sung Bond tune - and Bond is supposed to be the epitome of English-ness - Goldfrapp is a great call. Or some other credible English female, so no Cheryl Cole then..

      Hehe @jamiecfc1 "so no Cheryl Cole then.." Although I wouldn't mind her being in the film as eye candy! (Obviously a non-speaking part as well)...

      I know I probably wasn't the first person to come up with the idea of Muse to do the next Bond song, but it seems odd that I posted the idea on my Tumblr blog (which TotalFilm is a follower of) two weeks ago and now it's a lead story. Call me a bugger or whatever Brits call arrogant people, but sort of feel I deserve a little credit. Here's the original post: Look I'm not going to say I was the first person to suggest Muse as the band for the next Bond song, but I am going to say I posted the idea on Tumblr two weeks ago and TotalFilm is one of my like, 7 followers on that site, and now they publish this. Hmmm call me arrogant but I'm going to take credit for this one. Here's my original post: http://filmstudiesdropout.com/post/2673223675/bond-23

      Sorry FilmStudies, lots of people have suggested Muse for the next Bond theme, even the band themselves have said they'd be up for it and sites like sfx.co.uk reported the story ages ago.

      @ Hadouken76 lets face it every non-Bassey Bond theme song is bloody awful. I'm afraid I must disagree "We Have All the Time in the World" "Live and Let Die" "Nobody Does It Better" Are classics and not necessarily associated with Bond.

      @QuietLife I heard a rumour today that Miss Cole is set to appear in an action movie to introduce her to America, before supposed X-Factor job and she will be mentored by Robert De Niro. Though this was on tinpot local radio so its probably B*~#$£ks

      I'd love to see Alter Bridge do it, they have that epic sound that made Chris Cornell's song so good and would just need to crack a little more cheese and theatricality into it and they'd be perfect. Will never happen tho :(

      Overall a great list. If they keep the rumored title: "Red Skies at Night" then I think The Fixx should redo their song. Barring that, I vote for Muse or Sigur Ros, maybe Mogwai

      OKay 'We have all the time in the world' is a good Bond song...(the actual Theme was an instrumental). I can't imagine Sigur Ros or anyone of these shoe-watcher bands mentioned doing it, half the audience will be craning to hear the quiet lyrics, the other half will be commiting suicide...lol Prefably someone like Kylie or Bono to give it some OTT.

      Shirley Bassey anyone? David Arnold (Bond Composer) produced her last album and there's a song on there called "No Good About Goodbyes". Anywho... the lyrics were written by Don Black (written many lyrics to many Bond themes). Should've definitely been the theme to Quantum Of Sausage but producers went for tha "hip" duet with Alicia Keys and Jack White instead. Honestly, check it out. Short of her doing one last one I'd like to hear Goldfrapp have a crack at it. So long as it ain't Robbie sodding Williams, Amy Crackhouse or Michael bland Buble

      Totally agree with either Muse or Nero. Or why not give the Propellerheads a proper shot? They did a great job with their cover of On Her Majesties Secret Service. If all else fails, Chakka Demus & Pliers....

      Given the Fact Bond 23 marks the 50th Anniversary of our favourite 007 agent, why don't they enlist Shirley Bassey one more time? It would be a beautiful swansong and the woman still has that amazing voice. With Mendes at the helm, I'm sure he'll have his say on who gets to sing the tune. By the way, do you think it will be called Devil May Care?

      Ceelo is the only sensable choice. The great Bond songs are sexy and soulful. I remember that Garbage, Chris Cornell, and White/Keys did the last few but couldn't hum anyone of there songs now If you agree support my campign for Ceelo Green to do the next one. http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Ceelo-Green-to-do-the-theme-for-next-Bond-movie/148106775247900

      I'd like to put in a shout for Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang which I believe was going to be used as the song for Thunderball but was considered a bit risky so an instrumental version was used only during the film. Get Shirley Bassey to sing that. The Chris Cornell song was ok after a while but the last one and the madonna one and most of the others have been pony!

      HONESTLY really???? jtmediaknight Michael 'frigging, poor knock off of Frank Sinatra' Buble, you must be joking when you think that a*****e is even worthy of gracing a bond film with what people call vocals. Honestly I know everyone has their own opinion, but will never, HAVE never seen why people rave about him. The Scissor Sisters have a track on their secind album called Land of a Thousand words which has at times a very bond-esque feel to it, like wise with the jazz/pop singer Jamie Cullum of off his third album, which without listening to now the name escapes me, but would lend itself very well to a bond theme, great singer and song writer as well. BUT out of all the names listed on this feature only one stands out for me and that has to be that of MUSE.

      Cant agree with any of those choises, for me it can only be the Black Keys. A perfect mix of catchy guitar riffs and soulful vocals. Anything from the album 'brothers' would be perfect.

      I would agree with Kaz2y5, seeing as it is an important milestone in the franchise, bring back the singer that has given 3 of the most memorable bond themes of all time that is Dame Miss Shirley Bassey, lets face it her vocals on Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever and Moonraker were as essential to the films as Oddjobs dealy bowler in Goldfinger, the diamonds in Diamonds are Forever or Jaws's metal teeth in Moonraker.
