First time I'm hearing of this. Got a link to the Q&A? Or how I might find it?

Yeah, I've never heard of this either, and to my knowledge most of the unused Bond themes that have been rejected over the years (Blondie, Johnny Cash, Alice Cooper etc.) are known about.

Queen really should have done a Bond theme...and even Brian on is own could have written a great one too with an appropriate guest vocal.

I recall a soapbox message from him a few years ago stating that he was very excited about a very big film project he had been asked to write for/contribute to and to 'watch this space' as all very secretive, but nothing came of it. Could have been a Bond/Disney type thing he was asked to submit a piece for but that never got picked up?

I think I'm right in saying that Brian wrote 'Another World' for the movie Sliding Doors and for whatever reason the song got rejected. Could that be the quote you are referring to?

Possibly....although I'm sure the article I'm referring to was a lot more recent than that...I'll have a hunt when I get a mo!

This has been discussed previously, but at the time there was nothing from an official source:

This reminds me of the thing I heard once, I think it was discussed on here a while ago, how supposedly Princes of The Universe was originally 'Masters of The Universe" and was going to be used in a He-Man movie. But I don't think anyone could come up with any substantiation for that.

I think if there was ever a good reason for Queen+Adam Lambert to record something together this would be it... the perfect vehicle for Adam's rather hammy Broadway vocal style... sometimes criticised by others but in the right context (including their concerts) I think it's great.

But the question is, what song did brian present to the bond people and was it used in another project instead? Surely it would have been named after a bond film and maybe is a hidden gem that we may hear one day

Occasionally when a Bond song is rejected the artist will rename it/rework the lyrics and release it as something else. Case in point - "The Juvenile" by Ace of Base was originally a theme for GoldenEye. So just because Brian's never released anything with a Bond title doesn't mean he hasn't released his rejected theme.

That said, I can't think of anything he's done that really screams "James Bond music".
