008: sounds like bond?

The classic Bond themes have a distinctive bombast - minor key ballads that crank up to huge, hauntingly dramatic moments. Here are its siblings with their big Barry-esque orchestrations and (one hopes) Bassey-like belting.

post-Isaac Hayes 'Walk on By' rework

This song, "2Wicky," is Belgian group Hooverphonic's take on the Isaac Hayes version of 'Walk on By.' It's a really cool song from the '90s. Remember the end of Dead Presidents, when the credits roll and you hear that Isaac Hayes version? The numbers in the song are like Bond numerical codes, and it sounds like it could easily be one of the Bond girls' themes. Within the lyrics of "2Wicky," there are also references to a flight and a gun -- which kind of fits in with the whole jet-setting, sophisticated yet guarded/ready for battle Bond vibe and atmosphere.
