Cool James Bond

Hey guys! First post! Whoo!

I've been a ska fan as long as I can remember, and recently got given a disk full of ska tracks by a friend of mine. Sadly neither of us know who played some of them! So I was hoping you could give me a hand.

A cover of the James Bond Theme. I think it's a cover of the Specials version, as it sounds a lot cleaner and breaks down into the Goldfinger theme towards the end (at 2:21) after a very good 2 part improvised section (from 1:20). Sadly it cuts out after 2:52.

A cover of the Pink Panther theme. It's by an American band, and has the main theme played on the bass. No brass at all. It's more skacore/ ska punk than pure ska, and it's only about a minute long. It's possible that it's NoFX, but I'm not sure.

A cover of the Ghost busters theme, most likely again by an American band, with the main theme played on brass. Only 2:41 long. Also more ska punk than pure ska.

A cover of the Tetris theme, probably by the same band who did the James Bond theme, it has the same 2 part brass, and the same skankable guitar sound, and again breaks down into a really cool improvised horn section at about 1:28. It again cuts out, this time at 2:56.

If you guys can help that would be absolutely ace.

Thanks very much,

im 99.999999% sure the Pink Panther theme cover is by NOFX

Does it like start out slow, then they go 1234 and it goes into a faster part?

Yeah, it starts quiet, with just the bass and high hat, then the vocalist goes "1 2" and it carries on at the same speed, with more drums and guitar, then there's a scream and it goes fast and heavy
