It is my observation that both Dalton Bond films have different end-title credit songs from the opening title music, and the end-title songs have turned out better than the opening-title songs. Although this may be open to discussion, neither opening-title song has enough to interest me. While a-Ha's TLD opener is suitably up-tempo, the lyrics are somewhat bizarre and confusing, and Atlanta native Gladys Knight's LTK theme song has better lyrics but should have been up-tempo. Having said that, LTK works a bit better than TLD, but neither opening song has enough of a melody or arrangement to interest me. The closing songs are much better in each film IMHO. There has to be a melodic or an arrangement hook of some kind to attract my attention in a song, and 'If You Asked Me To' from LTK does it best among the Dalton films. The Pretender's 'If There Was A Man' is good but doesn't have enough of a hook for me. With that, I rank "If You Ask Me To' as the best song of the Dalton era.
Credits go to songwriters Albert Hammond and Diane Warren, who wrote 'If You Asked Me To,' and singer Patti LaBelle for performing it, as heard on the soundtrack. The late great Michael Kamen had nothing to do with writing this song!
That's the best part of it, as Kamen stumbled a bit in scoring LTK.
One final thing: skip Celine Dion's pale cover version of 'If You Asked Me To.' Nobody does this song better than Patti LaBelle, new attitude and all. Thank you, Patti.
