The camera motif in the Licence to Kill title-credit sequence always baffled me. It just had no point (or shoot). But I think with this Licence to Kill Remixed opening, I’ve connected all the dots.

It wasn’t so much an epiphany as a ton of bricks. I’d been trying without any success to replace the A-Ha song for The Living Daylights but nothing worked. I tried four different songs. Nothing lined up. There has to be some kind of similarity in tempo and style. Everything was a bust… though, Franz Ferdinand’s “Take Me Out” almost had me won over. But as I started to idly think about how I could alter Licence to Kill, I knew immediately that it had to be Paul Simon. It had to be “Kodachrome.”
