Alicia Keys, Jack White to Duet on New "James Bond" Theme

July 29, 2008 3:50 PM ET

A couple months ago, Alicia Keys talked about her desire to collaborate with the White Stripes. She'll have to settle for the next best thing, as Keys and Jack White are teaming up for the theme song of the next James Bond film Quantum of Solace. "Another Way to Die" was written by White, who will also play drums and produce the track. The song marks the first time in Bond history that the film's theme will be a duet. When we reported that Keys wanted to collaborate with White, we assumed it was just wishful thinking. We didn't think it'd come to fruition so quickly, or that they'd make a Bond theme out of it. The soundtrack for Quantum isn't due out until October 28th. The White/Keys combination beat out rumored candidates Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis and Duffy for the right to try to join Duran Duran, Shirley Bassey and Carly Simon in the Bond theme hall of fame.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
