  3. What is on my ipod:
    I actually enjoy the slightly annoying Another Way To Die (Quantum of Solace) purely for the juxtaposition of Jack White and Alicia Keys.
    I also enjoy The Scientists remake of You Only Live Twice.
    I really enjoy the hell out of Thunderball. No sense what so ever.
    For Your Eyes Only is a great little singalong.
    I used to have a Bond collection but I guess I don't anymore.

  4. Turns out I have Moonraker, too. I see why it didn't make the top 10. Not so good.

Meet in October?

What do you think? Pat came up with the next theme.  Pick an artist you've always meant to dive into but haven't.
