Need a mess of covers of different songs from James Bond films? Why the hell not, right? Even the shitty versions are usually passable. Cover Me posted a shitload of them, including some insanely cool ones. For my money, the Ray Barretto and John Zorn covers of the James Bond Theme are the best of the lot. But you ought to browse through the others, it's an eclectic cross section, Deadbolt, Radiohead, Magazine, Count Basie and so on. For those of you too lazy go elsewhere, there's a couple ticklers below, including two by John Barry, the OG. If you really can't get enough, there's a ten hour thing of Henry Mancini's version repeated over and over at YouTube. Ten hours. How does someone even upload that shit?
