Tina Turner - Goldeneye - Single

Goldeneye is the theme song for the same named James Bond movie from 1995, and was especially written for Tina by Bono & The Edge from U2. For promotion, Tina performed the song live at several TV-Shows and James Bond like at her Wildest Dreams Tour in 1996 / '97 and the 50th Anniversary Tour in 2008 / '09. Live versions are available on the Live In Amsterdam home video from 1996 and the album TINA Live from 2009. A large number of different promotional records features also remixed versions from David Morales and Dave Hall. The song was first released on the original motion picture soundtrack, but also included on the album Wildest Dreams the following year.

The music video shows many scenes from the movie and a very elegant Tina, wearing a long white strapless dress, sitting on a chair and walking on a catwalk. The clip was never officially released from Tina’s record company, but is available on the home video The Best of Bond…James Bond.

Tina Turner - Goldeneye - Music Video

Billboard - November 04, 1995

Turner steps to the mike to serve a tingly, feline performance of the theme to the next installment in the James Bond film series. Producer Nellee Hooper captures the essence of the movie, wrapping the track in sweeping strings and horns that are fondly reminiscent of the classic „Goldfinger“. U2’s Bono and the Edge get in on the fun, writing a tune that’s fraught with cryptic lyrical twists and romantic intrigue. Bets on the single’s radio and club success are hedged with well-crafted remixes by Dave „Jam“ Hall and David Morales. The former reconstructs the track with sleek hip-hop rhythms, while the latter goes for sultry house grooves. Both are totally slammin’.
