Sounds too much like that terrible Adele and the dross that was Sam Smith for me to like it on it's own.

Addicted to this song. At first I thought it was fine but with every additional listen it just gets better and better. May inch up to my 2nd favorite for the Craig films (behind Casino Royals song).

Digging it. Took a little bit to get there but the instrumentation is great, her voice is very fitting and the chorus is already stuck in my head after 2-3 times. Definitely a great theme.

A step up from Sam Smith’s song, but it’s a little meh.

I’ll listen again to see if it’s a grower

Liking this a lot. My favorite of the Craig Bond films. Possibly up there with my favorite bond themes. But nothing is close to Nobody Does it Better. Radiohead did a great live version of that song as well.

@3:10 in the track: lets ruin this by making the audio clip, so that the track distorts like crazy.. this will sound amazing on crappy apple headphones

I like it a lot more than like 2 of the other Craig Bond theme songs. Its under You Know My Name and Skyfall though. I like how airy Eilish's voice is. A shame post-Skyfall everything has to be slow again though. Would have been nice to have a more up tempo theme.

probably my favourite of the craig themes but it still doesnt come close to the classic bond themes. better than a lot from brosnans themes to but not better than goldeneye though.
EDIT: just listened to the craig ones again and i really like casino royales, quantums is good but just not a bond theme, skyfall starts off well but i just dont like it, spectres is boring and just reminds me of shitting blood.

The past three songs sound far too similar. I don’t get why they don’t switch it up

Also I don’t understand how people can hate on Sam Smith.. yet love this

it’s very safe and formulaic but I don’t dislike it

You Know My Name is okay.

everyone acting like it’s the best are simps

All of these are better:

That Sam Smith song is straight up embarrassing

Passing on Radiohead was idiotic, their song was fantastic

But i agree that the new song is kind of samey

It's in keeping with other Craig themes. Whether that good or bad is your personal preference. I think they are all terrible aside from Skyfall which is just OK.

None of them will ever make it to one of my playlists, which contain a bunch of Bond themes.

This is such a good song. Tragic that they would pass over Shirley Bassey of all people to woo hot artists with audiences that don't give a fuck about Bond.
I think for that film it was supposed to be Amy Winehouse and it fell through with a few weeks to go, Jack White was an emergency job.
This Shirley Bassey number was written a few years later by Arnold. it's a cracking song, she always gives me a little tingle with her voice.

^yeah Spectre is their biggest fuck up tune wise, Radiohead makes that octopus shit really creepy and it works much better than the shite they chose.

My god that was boring. Billie Eilish likes to talk her way through yet another song but doesn’t have the sheer gravitas as an Adele etc to pull of anything remotely memorable.

Like where was the build up to something powerful and iconic? It was just the same sombre talking throughout.

I mean, opinions are what they are but you know...you and I don't have similar ones. I legit think Skyfall is the BEST Bond title song, also I think you're crazy for thinking it's bad but it's alright haha.
Its badly written and scored by boredom alone.
The last 3 sound the same, they are not exciting at all.
And the BEST?? Not even the best Craig, Chris won't be beaten.
As for classics, that cannot be a serious statement.

I think Billie's made more exciting songs than this for sure, but she's way more interesting both as a writer and performer than Adele
