SOUNDTRACK

Main Title Song

Pop singer Tina Turner delivered a haunting, seductive and bombastic song for GOLDENEYE, which was written by U2 members Bono and The Edge. The song peaked at number 10 in the US charts on November 18. The song was recorded at the Olympic Sound Studios in London. Nine different mixes were made of the main title song and in 2010 Pussycat Dolls member Nicole Scherzinger made a cover used for Activision's GOLDENEYE 007 video game.

End Title Song

Goldeneye french single.jpg

For the romantic climax of the movie, composer Eric Serra teamed up with Rupert Hine to write THE EXPERIENCE OF LOVE. This song was heavily inspired by Serra's soundtrack to 1994's LÉON: THE PROFESSIONAL and was performed by Serra himself with background vocals by NOA.

THE EXPERIENCE OF LOVE

I know you dream a lot
Holding on to lies
And you wait around
For someone to know where you hide

In your dreams, you feel a lot
But you keep it all inside
And you close your eyes
It helps keep you alive

But the experience of loving
Will take all the pain away
Just understanding for the first time
What you feel inside, love is in your life
(The experience of love, first time)

And having come this far
Cherishing your dreams
You have realized now
How they help keep you alone

And the experience of loving
Will take all the pain away
Just understanding for the first time
What you feel inside, love is in your life

(Leave the dreams behind)
Breathing in the scent of love
(Leave the dreams behind)
Sensing life in everything under the sky

And the experience of loving

Will take all the pain away

Just understanding for the first time

What you feel inside, love is in your life

 

(The experience of love, under the sky)

Searching forever

(The experience of love, under the sky)

Will take all the pain away

(The experience of love)

For the first time

(Under the sky)

 

Love is in your life

(The experience of love)

Take it below, feel the flow

Hold it close, don't let it go

(The experience of love, under the sky)

 

It will take all the pain away

(The experience of love)

For the first time

(Under the sky)

 

When love is in your life

(The experience of love)

For the first time

(Under the sky)

Searching forever

(The experience of love)

For the first time

(Under the sky)

GOLDENEYE

See reflections on the water
More than darkness in the depths
See him surface in every shadow
On the wind I feel his breath


GoldenEye I found his weakness
GoldenEye he'll do what I please
GoldenEye no time for sweetness
But a bitter kiss will bring him to his knees


You'll never know how I watched you
From the shadows as a child
You'll never know how it feels

to be the one who's left behind


You'll never know the days, the nights
The tears, the tears I've cried
But now my time has come
And time, time is not on your side


See him move through smoke and mirrors
Feel his presence in the crowd
Other girls they gather around him
If I had him I wouldn't let him out


GoldenEye not lace or leather
Golden chains take him to the spot
GoldenEye I'll show him forever
It'll take forever to see, what I've got


You'll never know how I watched you
From the shadows as a child
You'll never know how it feels
To be so close and be denied


It's a gold and honey trap
I've got for you tonight
Revenge it's a kiss, this time I won't miss
Now I've got you in my sight
With a GoldenEye, Golden, GoldenEye
With a GoldenEye, GoldenEye
