The song: from a techno standpoint...   Thursday, November 14, 2002 (10:53 a.m.) 

I listen to and enjoy both genre's that David Arnold seems to be trying to bridge. I've got many an Orbital CD, crystal method, and the like... as well as all of David Arnolds biggies (including that promo CD where he and Nicholas Dodd re-orchestrated some bond songs with some popular artists). Regarding the song: as an electronic music fan, It sucks. Listening to it all the way through i get to the part where she says 'Sigmund Freud Analyse this Analyse this Analyse this'... thats pretty dumb. It isn't even good techno. If i bought an orbital CD and this song was on it, I'd try to scratch it off the album with a small eyeglass screwdriver. It is bad relative to its own genre.

Which clearly means It is one of the worst James Bond songs ever. First of all, you can't make a song James Bond-ish just by adding orchestra samples. Second, not having the project's composer write the song is a bad idea. (Live and Let die and Goldeneye are good songs and aren't written by the composer, but Paul McCartney and U2 are more Bondish than Madonna...)

somebody please tell me what the orchestral samples are!   Sunday, November 17, 2002 (8:19 a.m.) 

cuz the orchestral bits of 'die another day" rock, and i'd like to hear the whole piece.

and yeah, that "sigmund freud, analyse this etc" thing is really silly.

as are a bunch of the little "uh, uh uh"'s.

but i love the orchestra. so please tell me what the piece is!!

Re: somebody please tell me what the orchestral samples are!   Monday, November 18, 2002 (6:31 a.m.) 

actually a bit of it can be heard in one of the remixes i think. and another bit of it in the demo... waite thats the thud techno lol!

and whats with the "sigmund freud analyse this" ??? who the hell is sigmund freud lol! and the "uh uh uh" is the laughing of madonna, very madanna thing lol, but i got the version without both i think lol

but yes, one of the "remixes" of her song has the orchestra... i might even remix it myself to be only orchestra and just skip her and the techno lol

but are they original samples (composed for the movie/song), or are they taken from another piece?

Sigmund Freud   Saturday, November 30, 2002 (6:19 p.m.) 

Sigmund Freud was one of the most famous and influential psychiatrists ever. He is world reknowned and made a lot of developments into analysis of the human mind.

Basically he just associated everything to sex.

Like James Bond, I suppose.

(There, is that related enough to the forum...?!)
