When this song was first released, there was an outcry because of how different it sounded from Bond songs in the past (hint: it was very auto-tuned). “Die Another Day” is definitely the most pop-sounding song on this list, and the accompanying music video cost a whopping $6 million to produce.
Interestingly, studio producers picked Madonna to sing the title track for the Bond movie after the success of her song “Beautiful Stranger,” which was created for Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, which was a parody of James Bond movies.
Though the song still has a strong electronic beat, it was originally much more overpowering. The song went through many changes before it was finally released.
