Amy Winehouse, who for a long time was tipped to record the theme to the new James Bond movie Quantum Of Solace, has hit back at the film's producers by claiming that the confirmed Alicia Keys/Jack White collaboration won't be a patch on her song.

The duet, called Another Way To Die, is yet to be aired publicly, but Winehouse clearly doesn't rate its chances.

Speaking to New Magazine, she said: "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'm waiting!"

Winehouse's theme was to be produced by Mark Ronson, who said that they were both "gutted" when they were told that they hadn't got the gig. The trumpet-favouring producer was more philosophical, though, reasoning that: "At the time Amy was going through some shit, and now she's doing great, so who cares if we missed the Bond boat?"

Well, it seems that Amy does.
