Should this song have been used for James Bond's movie "Thunderball"?

The orignal theme was supposed to have been done by Johnny Cash, however Paramount Pictures turned it down over Tom Jones' theme because it sounded to "Westernized" (Like a TV Western). However I think Cash's version sounds a little more on point to the story line of the movie.

Here is the actual version used

  • I like Johhny Cash's version better but Tom Jones' version definitely fits the James Bond movies soundtracks. TJ version is sexier more appealing to broader audience, JC would have turned off a lot of people who really hate Country/Western music.

  • As much as I like cash it just doesn't fit and Jones is a Welsh legend so I can't knock him it just fits James bond

  • Yeah, NO
    The Johnny Cash song is better but just doesn't have a Bond feel to it
