The veteran singer, 65, said he was not impressed by recent 007 tunes, arguing that there is currently too much "politics" in the selection process.
"I would love to have done [a James Bond song]," he told DS. "It's like asking, 'Would you like to win the pools?'
"It's something that's not been very good lately, shall we say? The last couple of films haven't produced anything of note - no songs that make you think 'This is a Bond hit'.
"All the great ones with Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones and Matt Monro, they haven't matched them."
He added: "I'm sorry but the recent songs just haven't been good enough."
Chris Cornell, Madonna, Jack White, Alicia Keys, Garbage and Sheryl Crow are among recent artists to record a Bond track.
