Madonna's song truly rocks!   Monday, December 30, 2002 (6:53 p.m.) 

Ok, so the score may suck but at least the Madonna song is becoming a instant classic over europe! i totally understand why you donīt like it! americans are not used to modern and sophisticated sounds! while at europe this kind of sound is what most sells, in america is the boring and same old style of songs that produce hit records! so forgive madonna and her producers for trying to bring some inovation to the bond music scene when you prefer to live in the past!

p.s.:both garbage and sheryl crow songs were also pretty inovative and stylish! get used to european fashionable and trendy sound! try to move on forward not backward

This is a quite provincial viewpoint. What you call "new" and "cutting-edge" to the rest of the world is trash. I liked Madonna's song, but I would hardly call it cutting edge. The style was only new in the sense of a Bond song; as far as music in general goes it was simply a genre change. I hate a vast majority of European pop music, mostly because I see it for what it is: a bunch of talentless and poorly sung/played though well-marketed trash. The US, on the other hand, or should I say, on the same palm, is usually worse. The difference is neglible and separating the two is like trying to tell the difference between Christina Aguleria and Briteny Spears: it is humanly impossible. The only real difference is the color of belly-button ring. Anyways, I guess what I'm trying to say is that you are an idiot, and that your viewpoint is not only wrong, it is offensively inane. Have a nice day.

so you classify madonnaīs song as pop? thereīs the proove that you know very little about music... personally i also hate european or american pop because it is totally manufarectured and superficial (the lyrics are ridiculous, the song structure is basic and the voices are the worst). i do understand that the song from madonna isnīt quite the thing we are used to hear in a bond film soundtrack, but i believe that it goes well with the movieīs rush! and thank god it isnīt another ballad.

by the way, there is a notorious difference between britney and christina, britney canīt sing - i know because i was once unluckly enough to see a perform live.

So you love America, but you are willing to use its name as a moniker for something that you hate? Perhaps this is a classic case of European elitism more than it is a case of the so-called "arrogance" of Americans. (I could go on endlessly about the centuries of elitism that is continually and insufferably perpetuated by "intellectuals" of Europe.) Also, I would like to point out that there is a difference between the Pepsi can in my garbage bin and the Coke one, but for all practical purposes, I view them the same way. The same principle applies to the Briteny/Christina debate: they may have subtle differences (ok, so Christina can caterwaul slightly louder) but it really does not matter. Also, I would like to define "pop", here and now. "Pop" is, in my view, anything that is produced by the
commercial music machine, that specializes in swapping beats and lyrical tracks interchangably so as to continue to perpetuate the ignorance of the populous in the area of music. I agree that the music of europe does have its own special sound that differs from the American one, however, I would think that this could be merely a musical manifestation of the personal differences of the five nameless, faceless composers that write every pop song. Now, before you begin to pick apart my exaggerations as if I had even hinted that they were representative of the truth, let me say that I understand that there is 1) a difference in "pop" with other styles and 2) that American and european music do sound slightly different. My point is that for all practical purposes, they are both largely composed (not completely composed)of ameturish and poorly constructed musical fecal matter. That is my point.

There is a big difference between Britney and Christina:
Britney is Beautiful and Christina is UGLY. Simple.

OMG...the typical "old world" arrogance. Totally out of place.
I hate this song...and I am European as well. Believe it or not, I haven't
heard the song until I watched the movie (well, at least not consciously) and
I almost choked on my pop-corn when I heard it. I was close to leaving the theatre
but I was hoping for a better movie to follow (which didn't).
Let's hope that the next Bond movie will feature
a memorable title song again and not such badly written trash.

The song has become an instant classic in Europe ??
Not here (Germany that is).
And what exactly is "european fashionable and trendy sound" ?
Uhm...isn't Madonna american ??

Happy New Year by the way !

i was quite surprise when you said you were from germany since your country is almost as the birthplace of techno and rave, so therefor i made (apparently) the wrong guess that youīd enjoy madonnaīs beat. of course the song has nothing to do with other previous bond titled themes, but then again if the spy is supposed to be modern and edgy why would he listen to tina turner or shirley bassley? (nothing personnal against them!) you would presume that he would also ear something has modern and edgy as him right?

anyway different points of views are what i like the most, as long as there is self-respect, so keep them coming!

happy new year to you too

Hasselhoff, Tesh, and Paltrow???   Saturday, January 4, 2003 (4:08 a.m.) 

You're going to need a better argument than your's of Americans not liking sophisticated music because: a)it's not a true, and b)it's a stereotype that can be applied to Europeans as well eventhough it is completely unfounded.

I recall David Hasselhoff and John Tesh being rather popular in Europe even though Americans despise them. And I also heard that Gwenyth Paltrow's version of Bette Davis Eyes from the movie Duets was huge in Europe even though nobody cared here at home. I wouldn't really call that a shophisticated taste.
