Sting’s It’s Probably Me is a great tune - always make sure it’s in my shuffle list (although my new fave Sting track is The Last Ship - the lyrics and their delivery, considering the subject matter are sublimely witty).
One of my all time favourite tracks that i never tire of hearing is the Phil Collins solo instrumental Droned.
The way (for me) it conjures a rainforest is incredibly atmospheric (i could imagine it being inspired by the William Freidkin masterpiece The Sorcerer). Whether this was intentional or not i’ve no idea - probably not - and i hope never to find out, since these mysteries are what give such tunes their timeless quality.
There’s also the Genesis instrumental The Brazilian from the Invisible Touch album that’s pretty nifty; unwise to play in the car unless one’s insurance premium is of no consequence.
An instrumental for Bond 25 would be great if it were as edgy, dangerous and catchy as Barry’s OHMSS - a tall order. Perhaps a collaboration between Arnold and Hans Zimmer?! I loved the latter’s work on Blade Runner 2049 and The Dark Knight and with Arnold around to keep it ‘Bondian’ they could well nail it.
Btw, i much prefer the 80s Genesis sans Gabriel…
Likewise i’m a fan of Gabriel’s solo work post Genesis - His ‘pop’ throughout the 80s and his endeavours well beyond. His Real World label has produced some truly awe inspiring work, not least Gabriel’s own phenomenal score for Scorsese’s amazing The Last Temptation of Christ. For my money it’s one of the very best scores ever recorded.
