Hooverphonic, Burt Bacharach, Hal David - 2Wicky
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.
