16. 'Tomorrow Never Dies' (Sheryl Crow)
Not even Sheryl Crow's best Gwen Stefani impression can save this forgettable cut, which was chosen over offerings from the likes of Pulp and Saint Etienne. In fact, the singer's contribution to the spy series is notable only for how it underscores the fact that most Bond themes — notably the ones performed by women — are sung from the perspective of a neglected lover, dolled up and desperately waiting by the door for 007 to come home. Crow's first words here are especially pitiable: "Darling/I'm killed /I'm in a puddle on the floor/Waiting for you to return." And return James Bond always does, but never to the same girl.
