Rarities: Nina Persson/David Arnold - Deceased

Inevitably, with the anticipation of a new Bond film comes the anticipation of a new theme song. For 'Quantum Of Solace', ever since Amy Winehouse was officially considered out of the picture, speculations have begun making their rounds. Among the fans' favorite candidates are Leona Lewis, Duffy, and Alicia Keys. Personally, I'm rooting for Goldfrapp, but we all know it ain't gonna happen. I just like rooting for the underdog like that. Anyone would sure be better than Chris freaking Cornell, though. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if they chose Chris Daughtry for the part.
Anyways, now here's a real unlikely candidate.

Nina Persson, the voice of The Cardigans.

Odd choice? Not convinced? Just me being a good fanboy? Well, listen to this ultra-rare gem, her very hard-to-find collaboration with James Bond composer David Arnold.

Gorgeous. Is there anything she can't do?
One day, I might gather up a fraction of my Cardigans rarities collection and make a week-long special, possibly maybe.

Update: Apparently, there's a music video for it, too.
