    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.

    Don't get me wrong, I know a lot of people who like her music, however I'm not one of them and quite frankly I tire of reading about her latest drugscapade all the time.

    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!

    He should get Paloma Faith to sing instead... she's better looking as well.

    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.....

    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?

    > The real reason she quit is that see couldn't get anything to rhyme with the title...

    thought i'd give that a try

    "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..."

    okay, it's getting a bit weird now.....

  21. thomas k.

    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.

    Off topic? Seriously, does anyone out there /not/ fast forward through the opening music anyway?

    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.
