Have similar feelings too. Don’t hate it but needed multiple listens but maybe I’ll appreciate it more when I hear it with the title sequence.
Sam Smiths song was perfectly geared towards what Bond was experiencing in Spectre—a willingness to give it all up again, which he hadn’t been willing to do since Casino. I don’t get this criticism.
...and everyone else praising 'You Know My Name'...I appreciate you all.
Someone call the propellerheads.
Billie Eilish's music is interesting because of the production surrounding it. Without that production, you just get a very Lana Del Ray/Fiona Apple/Devi Lavato style songstress on sad strings and it's boring.
I see. Coincidentally, that's similar to how I feel about Sam Smith. His voice is good, but the music he puts out is utterly miserable and sleep inducing outside of his work with Disclosure.
Lin wrote a new song for In The Heights thoughProbably pretty good odds she wins an Oscar for this next year, no? Academy seems to have a recent thing for Bond songs, and the original song choices are normally so dire that it won't be hard for this track to stand out. Performing Yesterday as part of the In Memorium segment this year probably helps up her credibility with voters too.
Time to secure that MacPEGOTLin wrote a new song for In The Heights though
Lin-Manuel Miranda attend this year's Oscars ceremony, and while on the red carpet, he revealed to Variety that he has written a new closing credits song for the film adaptation of In the Heights!www.broadwayworld.com
It's absolutely true though?
1. Production is an integral component, especially when that production is handled by the artists themselves.
