Letter To Paris

Tomorrow Never Dies had another unused song, this time in the 1999 video game adaptation
By MI6 Staff
The 'Tomorrow Never Dies' videogame had the misfortune of both following the record-breaking sales and critical hit 'GoldenEye 007' (which came out in 1997 for the Nintendo 64) and developing for the new PlayStation platform with none of the previous expertise as EA had took over the license. Released two years after the film, the game has become somewhat lost in the midst of time compared to other 007 digital adventures.
One of the curiosities of the game is the second theme song. Referenced as 'Tomorrow Never Dies II' in the game's opening music credits, the track was officially titled 'Letter To Paris' in the videogame soundtrack. The song is never heard in the game (although code exists for it) and only features in the OST as bonus hidden track. Written by the game's composer Tommy Tallarico and performed by Elaine Paiva, the track runs for 2:47 and is one of the rarest Bond songs.
