Goldeneye: Performed by Tina Turner.  Written by Bono and the Edge.  Produced and mixed by Nellee Hooper.  Executive produced by Bono and the Edge. Recorded at Olympic Sound Studios, Londion.  Recording and mix engineer: Mark 'Spike' Stent.  Assisted by Paul 'PW' Walton. Programming by Marius De Vries.  Orchestra arranged by Craig Armstrong.  The Edge appears courtesy of Island Records Ltd.  Bono and the Edge would like to thank Chris Blackwell for Goldeneye.
Bono and the Edge were approached to write the theme for the new Bond movie staring the new Bond, Pierce Brosnan.  The name itself comes from the name of author Ian Fleming's home in Jamaica.  Fleming was the author of the Bond series.  Bono and the Edge wrote the tune, but declined to perform it, instead suggesting Tina Turner as a vocalist for the song.  She initially declined to do the song.  In Tina's own words:

"I just couldn't really feel it at the time. Then I got a hand-written letter from Bono saying, `Tina, trust me, it's rough at the moment, but it's going to be great.' I had to believe him. We live very near each other in the south of France, so he and Edge came up and finished it with me. Nellie Hooper came in with the arrangement. All of a sudden the song became. It was a matter of communicating and believing in each other. I'm looking forward to working with them again".

The song was a hit, as was the movie, and the Bond franchise was reborn for the 90s.  The promotional single featured several remixes of the title track including several not available on the commercial single.  Since The Edge is listed as appearing on this track, and Bono is not, it is assumed that the Edge performs on this track.
