007: Alta tensión (Música)

Las mejores melodías aparecidas en la decimoquinta aventura oficial de James Bond y el álbum que originaron

 007: Alta tensión presenta al mejor John Barry, creando una banda sonora memorable y muy atmosférica y haciendo equipo con la banda de rock Noruega a-ha para escribir el tema principal. Una de las más animadas de la serie, la canción alcanzó la quinta posición rápidamente en las listas inglesas. Otra banda de rock, The Pretenders, aportaría la canción que se escucha con los créditos del final, 'If There Was a Man', al igual que un tema que puede oírse a veces durante la película 'Where Has Everybody Gone?'. Ambos fueron esfuerzos satisfactorios pero ninguno impactó en las listas internacionales.

En esta película, gracias al personaje de Kara, la música clásica tiene una considerable presencia. Se pueden oír fragmentos de:

- Primer movimiento de la Sinfonía nº 40 en sol menor de Mozart.
- Cuarteto de cuerda nº 2 en re menor de Borodin.
- Las bodas de Fígaro, ópera de Mozart.
- Variaciones rococó, de Tchaikosvsky.
- Concierto para violonchelo, de Dvorák.

The Living Daylights

Hey driver
where're we going? I swear my nerves are showing

Set my hopes up way too high
living's in the way we die.

Comes the morning and the headlights fade in rain

Of hundred thousand people I'm the one they frame.
I've been waiting long for one of us to say:
Save the darkness
let it never fade away -
In the living daylights
in the living daylights.

Alright
hold on tight now
it's down
down to the wire

Set your hopes up way too high
living's in the way we die.

Comes the morning and the headlights fade away

Hundred thousand changes
everything's the same.
I've been waiting long for one of us to say:
Save the darkness
let it never fade away -
In the living daylights
living daylights
living daylights.

Comes the morning and the headlights fade away

Hundred thousand people
I'm the one they frame
In the living daylights
in the living daylights.

Living daylights
- set your hopes up way too high
Living daylights
- living's in the way we die -
Living daylights
- set your hopes up way too high -
Living daylights
- living's in the way we die


Where Has Everybody Gone?

Where has everybody gone?

I've got this feelin,
Goin to end up here on my own.
Where's my support now?
Where's the ranks of the strong?
In this faceless crowd, where can I belong?

Everybody's gone insane to catch a plane to have their Heavens closer,
They want the Kingdom but they don't want the King - they want his throne.
And there's no time - there's no time at all!

Where has everybody gone?
With great pleasure,
I sing your national song.
Because you're beautiful,
And you'll soon be long gone.
And the ashes of your memoirs will be strewn across the lawn.

Pack your face, save your cases of your place in the Everafter.
These hallowed Halls are lined with walls that are cracked by the Myria's laughter.
And there's no time - there's no time at all!

Where has everybody gone?
There's no time,
There's no time at all...
