Alright, now before I get on to the actual list, going to cover what you said up top. Personally I think You Know My Name worked perfectly with CR. It's one of my top 3 themes, actually. Second only to the Living Daylights. That aside, I do think Another Way to Die was far from being the best Bond theme, but I do believe there have been worse. I enjoy listening to it from time to time. I think it's biggest flaw, really, is Jack White. Remove him from the equation and it becomes much better, I imagine.
Anywho, on to the artists,
Frankly I'm pretty good with people they are considering. When Michael G. Wilson said Duffy I was hesitant because, well, the only Duffy song I'd heard was Mercy and I can't make it past the first two seconds of that song it annoys me so much. But I went onto youtube I went and clicked a video at random: Rain On Your Parade. Doesn't really seem like it would work for a movie, but it does sound like it could be the theme song to a Bond game, and I think Duffy does show the possibility of doing a Bond theme in that song. David Arnold mentioned he wants to work with the Killers. Personally I can't stand the Killers stuff, but I can see how they could work, and honestly there have been people who have done Bond themes where I can't stand their ordinary music but I quite enjoy the Bond song. So I'd be pretty content with either.
As for a suggestion of who I'd like to see, I say surprise me.
