Great news!

This is great news in my mind, one less thing to have to read about that mess of a person in the paper.

You can almost hear the dispair

You can almost hear the dispair in Mark's voice here, as he watches Amy Winehouse throw away another opportunity for greatness and takes him down with her.

Excellent

Now, just get someone decent to record it, remind the songwriter that not every Bond theme has to have the title in the song, and we'll be good to go...

all is not lost!

Amy keeps her music in her beehive, there's a whole recording studio in there, so when they need a theme tune, she just goes to the hairdresser's and out it pops!

First few times

The music was good... then her voice became Whine-House... long before Drugs kicked in. Pity the poor soul... and then ask about the people dealing and supplying. Our version of Brittany...

Is this offer open to anyone?

I mean, can I announce that I'm going to record the next Bond theme and then announce that, actually, I'm not and get an El Reg article covering both statements?

I'll sing crap and take drugs if it helps.....

Oh, behave.

And anyone who can't spell 'Britney' after all this time needs to sort it out, and is disqualified from opining on matters of popular culture. That is all.

Has anyone seen...

Pete Doherty and Amy at the same time? When Pete goes at HM pleasure does Amy popup and vice versa - one cross dresser with a habit responsible?

"But it's just a Quantum of Solace;

The world is not your molasc;

but your real popular on myspace;

with those pearls on your necklace..."

rhymes?

Maybe not hard rhymes, but possibly some soft ones?

Quantum of Solace,

dum ti dum ti dum,

Castor and Pollux,

dum ti dum ti dum,

<something> like bollocks.

You might pronounce 'solace' a bit differently on your side of the pond so this might not work.

should do the Bond theme - though, they'd probably miss the deadline. May be they can do the next one.

Remember Spleen

Maybe she changed her mind because they decided on Spleen's lyrics:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/01/24/bond_22_title/comments/

*waahhnnyyahnaahh* He's got a quantum of solace *wahhhnyyaaahnaahhh* And a googleplex of sanctimony *wwwaaahhhnyyaaahhhnaaah* He'll aspirate your apathy *wwwaaahhhnyyyaannaaah* With anaerobic dialysis *waaahhnnyyyaaanaahhh*

Although it does take someone truly pissed to be able to sing this with the appropriate diction.
