James Bond Theme Songs, From Worst to Best
Over the past 58 years, the themes from the James Bond films have run a very wide gamut. From ballads and torch songs, to rock and instrumentals, the Bond themes have ranged from orchestral to electronic with many stages in between. But which of the historic songs are the best and worst?
Liverpool 2-0 Sheffield United: Pass, pass, pass and move, it's the Liverpool groove.
Liverpool whittled down their magic number to 39 with a 2-0 win over Sheffield United at Anfield on Thursday night. Thirty-nine more points and they’ll be champions of England for the 19th time. These 39 steps lead up a cliff, rather than down it.
Liverpool 1-0 Wolves: Why 42 is the answer for the Reds
Douglas Adams famously wrote in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy that "The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is 42." For Liverpool, after their 1-0 win over Wolves at Anfield on Sunday, that’s exactly right.
Bournemouth 0-3 Liverpool: Reds as Dominant as They've Ever Been
Liverpool wrapped up a busy week of football with as comfortable a victory as you will ever see away from home. The Reds beat Bournemouth 3-0 to continue their remarkable run of form against Eddie Howe’s side.
David Byrne: Still Making Sense
"All I want is to breathe." I hear you, David, I really do. It's sweltering in the Hammersmith Apollo in west London, and the sweat is pouring off me. And the beat goes on, as Byrne's band power through the opening track from Talking Heads' Remain in Light album, "Born Under Punches."
Huddersfield 0-3 Liverpool: Stats Review
Sound the church bells! Liverpool had a lot of possession away from home, and won! This has been all too rare an occurrence in recent times. Prior to this match, the Reds had played 46 away matches in the Premier League under Jürgen Klopp. Those games split almost evenly between Liverpool having less or more than 59 percent of the possession.
'With The Beatles' with 'The Beatles'
The 22nd of November is a fascinating date in Beatles history. In 1963, the group released their second album, With The Beatles. Five years later, The Beatles (a.k.a. The White Album) was unleashed upon the world. They were pretty big days for the USA too; JFK was assassinated on the first, and Kirk kissed Uhuru on the second. Look at that, America, an interracial kiss on your tellybox.
Ranking the Felix Leiters
The James Bond fan community was saddened to learn of the death of Bernie Casey. The former NFL player-turned actor has died at the age of 78. He played the part of Felix Leiter in an unofficial James Bond film, 'Never Say Never Again', in 1983. Sean Connery talked Casey into taking the role as a black actor would make Leiter 'more memorable'. The official Bond films have since followed suit by casting Jeffrey Wright as Leiter in the first two Daniel Craig movies.
