Radiohead, Alice Cooper And More Artists Who Wrote Rejected James Bond Theme Songs

The Crow song, on top of working the film’s title into its finished product, is still a proper entry into the history of Bond songs, for sure. It’s a beautiful, moody noir number in a series that was still trying to reinvent itself in a modern context. But “Surrender” is, without question, the song that should have opened the film, rather than be shifted to the ending credits. It’s a tribute to evil, with a delicious lyrical story that would have even made Elliot Carver cry proud, cold bastard tears. This is the theme that got away, and the Thunderball-style confidence presented within doesn’t pretend otherwise.
