Customer Review

on 4 March 2008
This is a great song which unfortunately was not used in the 1995 James Bond film Goldeneye, even though it was written for it. It is very upbeat with tremendous vocals by Kym Mazelle - a full vibrant black voice that does well an unmistakable underscoring of the James Bond theme. It's a travesty this song wasn't used on the end of Goldeneye instead of the appalling Eric Serra track The Experience of Love (which incidentally wasn't written for Goldeneye but was left over from Luc Besson's Leon, replaced incidentally by Sting's Shape Of My Heart).

This single has 5 different versions of Searching For The Goldeneye: 1 Motiv8 Airplay Mix - is the standard radio version and is very atmospheric with its heavy Bond Theme underscoring; 2 Motiv8 Moneypenny Mix - is a longer arrangement with a great intro but some unfortunate dub mixing added into it, it remains immensely listenable and still features the underscoring; The O.P.M. Mix - is unfortunately not a very good mix with too much reliance on messing about with vocals and not enough attention paid to instrumental arrangement; 4 The Sharp Dub - bares no resemblance to the theme track at all and is repetitive and very weak; 5 Motiv8 Spectral Dub - is an interesting alternative long version with much better intrumentation using synths & rhythm, it does meander a little in the middle but is a fair alternative version (sadly lacking the Bond Theme underscoring though).

Overall tracks 1,2 & 5 are very worth listening to and Bond Fans will lament the omission of this great track from the Goldeneye soundtrack which desperately needed it.
