Last night, London’s Royal Albert Hall held the “The Sound of 007” concert, promoting a new documentary of the same name about James Bond themes. A host of artists came out to sing some of the greatest (and, in a few cases, not-so-great) Bond songs, and plenty of videos are now online.
Some of the original artists performed their themes: Garbage doing “The World Is Not Enough,” Lulu doing “The Man With the Golden Gun,” and of course Shirley Bassey doing “Goldfinger” and “Diamonds Are Forever.” Composers like David Arnold and Hans Zimmer performed the songs they wrote too. But the bulk of the setlist was made up of covers.
We’ve rounded up videos of all the covers. Skin from Skunk Anansie (pictured above) slays the dynamics of “Live and Let Die.” John Grant lends his low-voiced croon to “We Have All the Time in the World.” Jamie Cullum brings jazzy swagger to “From Russia with Love.” Watch all those and more below.
