Shouldn’t He Get The Bond Title Number?

The Arts

I thought I’d posted this before but I can’t find it on the site. Well, the new Bond film has a title – ‘Skyfall’, which doesn’t sound remotely Fleming-like – so I thought we should have the rather wonderful David McAlmont singing ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ with Bond composer David Arnold, who has a nice line in dry double-takes.

McAlmont is sensational live, and is consistently one of the UK’s most underrated performers – catch him when you can. Meanwhile this is a rather more flamboyant take on the classic. I can’t imagine many other singers crawling through an orchestra in a catsuit…

    To be fair, ‘Skyfall’ sounds a damn site more Fleming-like than ‘Quantum of Solace.’

    I’ve often wondered what happen to McAlmont. ‘Yes’ was one of THE hits of the Nineties, in my very humble opinion, and he has a great voice.

    I had the great privilege of attending the Concert for CARE a couple of years ago where David Arnold brought David McAlmont on to sing “Yes” live. It’s possible I have never been happier.
