The music in of Pixar's trailer for 2004's "The Incredibles" sounds distinctly like a re-edit (or a very close approximation) of the Propellerheads' frabjous cover of the theme to "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", to my thinking John Barry's best.

Composer David Arnold stunk up the music for the last handful of Bond movies, and his meddlesome, ego-ridden production bollixed what could have been a great various-artist compendium of Bond music covers. Alas, with the exceptions of the Propellerheads' opus and Iggy Pop's respectful cover of Louis Armstrong's "We Have All The Time In The World," it's untrammeled crap. Aimee Mann covering Carly Simon should have been a home run; she sounds like she just wanted to get out of the studio.

I'm always glad to hear that OHMSS melody again, but I hope Arnold has nothing to do with The Incredibles. 04:04PM «
