Crow, Sheryl Crow Debuts At No. 11

December 17, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Sheryl Crow's "Tomorrow Never Dies" (the title song for the new James Bond movie) makes its debut on the British singles chart at No. 11.

Oddly, in the land of his birth, Bond has never had a No. 1 theme song. The most successful 007 song in both the U.S. and the U.K. is Duran Duran's "A View To A Kill," No. 1 in the States and No. 2 in Britain.

As for Crow's turn at warbling a Bond tune, she may not be the only artist with a chart hit from the latest film in the long-running series-or the only artist with a song that features the lyric "tomorrow never dies." Listen for the superior track from the soundtrack, k.d. lang's "Surrender." Now that's a Bond theme!

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
