New Song: Nicole Scherzinger – ‘Goldeneye’ (Remake)

Published: Wednesday 3rd Nov 2010 by Sam

Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger was drafted in to re-record the iconic James Bond movie theme ‘Goldeneye’ for the re-release of the Nintendo 64′  ‘Goldeneye 007’. The remake of the fanboy smash hit stores around the globe this week, and is available on the Wii and DS.

How, though, did Scherzinger fare with the Tina Turner classic? Find out after the jump…

Important not to do, is to compare this version to the original. It’s unfair in that it would only come up short. That said, judged on its own merit (as it should be), the remake works remarkably well. Scherzinger’s smoky vocals compliment the Big Band production, and she packs enough power and gusto into her delivery to elevate the song beyond karaoke status. If there’s one gripe, it’s that the vocals become rather pitchy, screechy, and shouty, at the bridge. Yet, this doesn’t prove enough to surmount what, otherwise, is a solid showing. Good stuff.

    why? I mean she sings well but ……WHY this song? Really? it sounds like something she would have backing her on DWTS

  4. Lioness November 3, 2010

    whenever u do a cover…u get compared to the original..there is nothing u can do about that.

    especially since she is trying to use this sound as her new vocal sound. which i find extremely annoying and crapTacular.

    so from me…she did alright…the instrumental would have been more pleasant.

    she needs to go back to the drawing board.

    I liked it, Nicole really is an underrated vocalist and I’d choose her over Melody anyday

  6. KD November 3, 2010

    @ ROB: I agree totally, my hairs were standing on ends during the last 20-30 seconds of the song and not for the right reasons. As for the other 2min 40 seconds, it wasn’t bad, I’d have her over some of the many “pop-pretenders” out now.

    the end hurt my ears, and she was trying to sound like teh original so should expect unfavourable comparisions.

  15. Aryo November 3, 2010

  16. Aryo November 3, 2010

    omg… we r who we r debuted @ no. 1!!!!!

  17. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ November 3, 2010

    What do you mean it shouldn’t be compared to the original? Are you crazy? When you remake a song you will ALWAYS be compared to original! And it doesn’t help that she’s trying too hard to sing like Tina.

  18. the kiddz November 3, 2010

    Girl, leave the Tina Turner to Beyonce.

  19. MaZ November 3, 2010

    Tina Turner’s version is a classic!

    The song suits Nicole’s style and vocals.

    Nicole CAN NOT sing….Greater Dancer but not so great Voice, Melody Deserves the Success.

    Usually i dont attack artist unless i have a solid reason but the fact that she has a stan in here talking s*** is enough! Your b**** was selfish in her lil group and shes totally irrelevant!

  31. Aryo November 3, 2010

    @dionish i know y ur mad @ her, cuz u think nikki didnt let melody shine, rite? Nicole does NOT have anything to do wit the other dolls, it was all robin antin’s fault!

  32. Aryo November 3, 2010

    @dion ish u think she cant sing??? watch her performance @ hollywood bowl (rent)

  33. Wobbafat November 3, 2010

    Melody would have killed this s***.

  34. Kyus93 November 3, 2010

    She slayed this!!!!!! Off course it isn’t as good as the original but it’s still amazing!!!!

  35. trucie November 3, 2010

    clearly she studied the original.

  36. Jasmine November 4, 2010

    There is no way to not compare this to the original since she was copying Tina Turner’s style of singing the majority of the track up until the end of the song were her voice gave out and all you hear is squeekyness and off-key pitch. She should have done this with her own style…wait…that is why she is a flop solo artist because she does not have her own style!

  37. LJ November 4, 2010

    LOVE IT VERY DRAMATIC. SHES GREAT ON THIS. HOWEVER IT SEEMS EVERYTIME SHE COMES WITH A SOLO PROJECT, IT DOESNT DO TOO WELL. SOMETHING IS LACKING ON THE QUALITY OR HER DEFINED ASPECT IN HER VISION AND MUSIC.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  38. Infamous Doll November 4, 2010

    Ok I like Nicole voice but she is trying to sound like Tina Turner. Her voice doesnt even originally sound like this, it kind of sound like Eartha Kitt singing this

  39. Kamoa July 21, 2011

    Guyz do ur research before u to talk smack bout somebody…Nicole is very talented,i just think she is still trying to find her sound nd wat makes Nicole Nicolealso u guyz should kno that she is a Tina Turner fan so u kno she wanted to keep it to the source nd not try to change it,as u can c she wanted to do Tina proud nd i think she accomplished it.great job Nicole i will support u nd ur music(hopefully u will find that sound that is u). 🙂

  40. Kamoa July 21, 2011

    Ignorants is a bliss..but u guyz already kno that…buncha of hypocritz,but we r all foolz who think we r cool…dang thats all i got for my rap yo…peace out nd a bout. ;D

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could definitely be one of the very best in its field. Good blog!

    I do love the manner in which you have framed this particular situation and it does provide me personally some fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, coming from everything that I have witnessed, I simply hope when other reviews pile on that folks remain on point and not get started on a tirade of the news du jour. Still, thank you for this excellent point and whilst I can not go along with this in totality, I regard your standpoint.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!|掲示板}
