casino royally cheesy

Okay, so Casino Royale (the original) has probably the worst themesong ever ([]) (yes, I am abusing this little flash applet).

I mean, it’s a solid Bacharach tune, but what did they record it on? A Casio? I guess it’s fitting with the movie, so maybe the cheesy feel is on purpose. I admit I still haven’t seen it.

Have I mentioned that I have great hopes for the new Casino Royale? I think Daniel Craig is the perfect fit for a movie rendition of that book – i.e. someone who more closely fits the profile of the Bond of Casino Royale. I am hoping that they make this movie as dark and ambiguous as the book was.
