“Tomorrow Never Dies (Surrender)”

Here’s the original main theme for Tomorrow Never Dies dubbed over the opening credits. This k.d. lang track was swapped out at the last minute in favor of a screechy and generic Sheryl Crow number because Crow was a bigger star at the time. A pretty colossal fuck up since k.d. lang is a better vocalist, and her song is conceptually and stylistically superior. It’s written in the voice of the movie’s villain in the style of a John Barry/Shirley Bassey collaboration with a big, brassy finish that would make Tom Jones jealous.
