Amy Winehouse's Bond release

Amy Winehouse is planning to release the song James Bond bosses rejected.
Amy - who worked on the track with super producer Mark Ronson - is keen to show her effort is better than Alicia Keys and Jack White's collaboration, which was eventually chosen as the theme tune for 'Quantum of Solace'.
Amy told Britain's New! magazine: "I want to prove they have made a big mistake. I don't think they could have waited a bit. If they want a worldwide hit, I have them all up here.
"I guess they are going for clean-cut and boring. When I do release mine - and I am tempted to do it on the same day - this would be the bigger hit. If they change their minds, I am waiting!"
Amy was the original choice for the prestigious honour, but sessions between the troubled singer and Mark broke down, with Mark saying she "wasn't ready to record music".
The 'Rehab' star then went into the studio with producer Salaam Remi, but her managers later admitted it was "unlikely" she would perform the Bond track.
Mark recently revealed their pair were upset after failing to land the Bond song.
He said: "It's really disappointing, of course it is. But at the time Amy was going through some s**t, and now she's doing great, so who cares if we missed the Bond boat.
"It's fantastic to see her back on track again. We're both gutted we missed out on 007, but there will be other great opportunities for us."
