Lady Gaga Bond Theme Song
Gaga’s getting a crack at Bond: Pop charttopper Lady Gaga is in negotiations with MGM Studios to record the theme to the next James Bond film.
Film chiefs hope to have the “Poker Face” hitmaker perform the lead track for the upcoming 23rd 007 movie, which will be directed by American Beauty director Sam Mendes, a source told British newspaper The Sun on Wednesday. Word is Studio executives are expected to ask the 24-year-old singer to write and record a song for consideration in the next few weeks.
The outrageous pop star looks likely to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and Tom Jones who have performed the title track to previous movies in the British spy franchise.
“Bond bosses are all huge Gaga fan. Her sound and sense of drama make her the top choice. Gaga has the look as well as the voice to tackle a thundering ballad. She’s a great songwriter too. This is perfect on every level,” says a spy.
Canadian crooner Michael Buble is also expected to submit an audition tape. And Amy Winehouse — who was in contention to croon The Quantum Of Solace — but threw her chance away in a summer of drunken foolery. If she gets her act together — for once –she could be given another chance to audition as well.
Studio executives will then choose the best song to provide the soundtrack for the movie.
Previous stars to record Bond themes include Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Paul McCartney, and most recently Alicia Keys and Jack White.
