Bond Karaoke (Music Thoughts: In These Shoes, Susie Vanner)

Susie Vanner’s claim to fame is her appearance as ‘Log Cabin Girl’ in the James Bond film ‘The Spy Who Loved Me,’ and she uses the bond theme as an ‘intro’ to her album ‘In These Shoes.’ This is more a ‘personality’ album than anything else. I wouldn’t call Vanner’s voice as significant, even interesting, but she does bring a certain personality in singing these songs which is a collection of tunes that has made a significant impact in her life. Of course, the theme from her film, ‘Nobody Does It Better’ is here, but I don’t know if I would consider it memorable.

The same can be said for the rest of the album – songs which are competently sing, but otherwise mostly karaoke versions of pop hits like ‘Sweet Dreams are made of This,’ and ‘Tainted Love,’ among others. But, I think the album has a gorgeous cover so there’s that.
