Paul McCartney tips Amy Winehouse for `Quantum of Solace` theme

11-Mar-2008 • Quantum Of Solace

Sir Paul McCartney wants Amy Winehouse to sing the theme tune for the new James Bond film, 'Quantum of Solace' - report FemaleFirst.

The Beatles legend - who sang the title track for hit 1973 Bond film 'Live and Let Die' - thinks troubled singer Amy has the perfect voice for a theme song, and offered some advice to her.

He said: "I think Amy Winehouse would be really good, and I think she would do a really good job. My advice to her would be not to try and rhyme 'Solace' with anything - that's too hard."

Paul also said despite being responsible for one of the most popular Bond tunes of all time, he wouldn't want to have the responsibility again.

He added: "I definitely wouldn't do it again. I have been trying to think of something to rhyme with 'Solace' and all I can come up with is 'Wallace'! I don't envy whoever is going to do the song!"

Other singers who have recorded a 007 theme tune include, Dame Shirley Bassey, Tina Turner, Sir Tom Jones, Carly Simon and Lulu.
