Boyle’s first album, “I Dreamed A Dream” is at the top of the sales of his country and the world and she now is in the running for one of the most iconic roles ever singing.
The music that accompanies the most famous spy in Britain has always had a mark of prestige behind it. The song that accompanied the film ‘Goldfinger’ sung by Shirley Bassey, had a powerful voice and suggestive and wild graphics.
The great singers of the time were always selected to perform the opening sequence song. Paul McCartney’s performance of “Live and Let Die” was the first James Bond theme song to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song, it reached # 2 as a U.S. single, and # 7 on the UK charts.
Now Susan Boyle accompany other voices as Alicia Keys, Madonna, Tina Turner and Shirley Bassey the most famous and distinctive voice of James Bond music. Boyle is reportedly thrilled to be up for the job.
According to Lee Pfeiffer, co-author of ‘The Essential James Bond’ book, Susan is “a throwback to those great days when the likes of Dame Shirley Bassey would be asked to sing”. Monty Norman, composer of the classic 007 music said “They’ll think seriously because she’s got the right kind of sweeping voice”.
The next James Bond movie is going to be the 23th, and the third with Daniel Craig as James Bond.
