"James Bond Theme (Moby's Re-Version)" is American electronica musician Moby's remake of "The James Bond Theme" used in the series of James Bond films. This remake was featured in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies and is also featured as the second track in I Like to Score, a compilation of Moby's songs used in films. The song charted at number 8 in the United Kingdom, besting "Go"'s number 10 peak position on the UK Singles Chart six years earlier.[citation needed]. Moby has said "It did feel a little strange remixing something that was perfect in its original state",[attribution needed] further admitting that he "still thinks the original is miles better than the version I did".[attribution needed]

The song features two samples of dialogue from the Bond films: Pierce Brosnan saying "Bond, James Bond" as heard in GoldenEye, and the conversation between Bond and Auric Goldfinger in Goldfinger: "Do you expect me to talk" / "No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die."
