Comments about the soundtrack for Die Another Day (David Arnold)

I hate most Bond songs, but....

I'm frankly not suprised that people are bashing this Madonna song. I personally suspected that it would get lambasted when I first heard it. I'm proud to say however, that I enjoyed it more than most other Bond songs. I thought it was nice to hear a different sound rather than the usual minor-key, minor 7th/9th chord caterwaulings that accopmany Bond songs. Usually I find myself falling asleep at the titles of a Bond film, but this time I was kept awake out of sheer curiosity, and I found myself noting the similarities to other recent Maddonna stuff... maybe she's been taking notes from that self-ripoff fraud Horner. (I like the stuff that Horner rips off, but why can't someone of his talent be used to come up with, oh my gosh, NEW STUFF....) Anyway, I think that David Arnold should start writing some better scores before he starts bashing about "tuneless-ness". (i.e., whatever the heck track 3 was called on "The World is Not Enough"- you can't just let the drum machines do all the work, Arny.) And Elton John? James isn't gay, my friend. Your stuff would not apply. Well. I just thought I'd let the damnations from Bond song lovers (hey- I like Shirley Bassy, so don't go there) and Elton John/David Arnold fans come raining down. I mean, hey- this stuff sucks, so why should I have to do anything to make everyone know it, if their fans can do it for me?
