Lulu: My Bond theme was nothing to Shout about
SINGER Lulu says that she thinks she and Madonna should be crowned joint winners for the title of worst Bond theme ever recorded.
The Shout star sang The Man With The Golden Gun for 1974’s 007 film with the same name and admitted to not thinking much of it, but claimed that Madonna’s Die Another Day from 2002 was equally awful.
In a promotional video for Vauxhall Astra, Lulu, while driving around her home town of Glasgow in an Astra, was asked about being one of just a handful of artists to have a Bond theme to their name.
The singer, who announced a new tour on Monday, modestly replied: ‘Except I think mine was probably the worst one ever. Mine was not a great song.’
But when the interviewer asked if she had heard Madonna’s offering, she said: ‘Oh yes, hers was pretty bad. Me and Madonna.
‘That’s the only time Madonna and I could be together on anything.’
Lulu, 68, also spoke about first husband Maurice Gibb, who she was married to from 1969 to 1973.
She said: ‘The Bee Gees have got to be some of the greatest songwriters.
‘When I was married to Maurice, to be in their presence when they were writing, I was getting a masterclass, and I only know that at this point.’
Lulu has announced that she will be taking on the biggest tour of her career, which spans 40 dates around the UK, in October and November this year.
Tickets for her All About The Music Tour will go on presale on Wednesday and on general sale on Friday.
