I was wondering what proportion of Bond theme songs were sung by somebody Welsh. Quite a few because Shirley Bassey sang several and Tom Jones sang one. There are a few basic questions about how to count things along the way though.
Firstly, do you count Shirley Bassey once or three times? Secondly, Jack White and Alicia Keys are joint singers of Another Way to Die from Quantum of Solace. Do they both count as 1 or should they get 0.5? Thirdly, Aha, Garbage and Duran Duran (and to a lesser extent Wings) are listed on Wikipedia as the artists for their respective Bond theme songs, so should the whole band count or just the lead singer? I went with the lazy option: Bassey gets counted for each song, White and Keys are counted separately and for the bands, only the lead singer counts (which is a net gain for Scotland). Lastly, as far as I’m aware, Norway doesn’t have an equivalent state-like subdivision.
Here’s the national breakdown.
If Norway allies with the UK then they can avoid being outvoted by the USA.
