Bedtime Music: Garbage - The World Is Not Enough

New theme this week: songs from the James Bond series. As Milady discovered rather quickly in our relationship, I'm very much into the Bond movies. ;)

This video, The World Is Not Enough (from the Bond movie of the same name), is actually a separate music video that isn't part of the traditional Bond opening credits. I first saw this video at some friends' home when they played the movie DVD, the video being among the "extras." It's rather well done (IMO), with the making of a killer robot who looks like Garbage lead singer Shirley Manson. The robot kills a test subject, kissing him with acid(?), before being taken to the concert hall where Manson and Garbage are singing. The robot then kills Manson backstage before singing with the band who, along with the audience, are about to be blown up by the bomb inside the robot's torso.

About the title of the song and movie, it's based upon the Latin phrase
Orbis non sufficit. This is the Bond family motto, and was mentioned in a much earlier Bond movie, On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
