Sam Smith’s Bond theme is finally here. “Writing’s On The Wall,” which will open the next James Bond film, “Spectre,” debuted early earlier today shortly after making its radio premiere in the U.K.
If you haven’t heard the song, you’re probably better off heading over to iiTunes or Spotify, as I’ve had several failed attempts at posting the song here.
A couple of weeks ago when it was announced Sam Smith had written and would be singing the “Spectre” theme, Smith admitted it only took him twenty minutes to write the song. And after listening to the song, he probably should have taken a little more time with it.
I thought “Writing’s On The Wall” would grow on me, but the more and more I listen to it, the less I like it. I’m also not a fan of some of the lyrics:
“If I risk it all, could you break my fall?” “How do I live? How do I breath? When you’re not here I’m suffocating. I want to feel love flow through my blood, tell me is this where I give it all up. For you, I have to risk it all. Because the writing’s on the wall.”
Now, to be fair if was going to be tough for whoever came after Adele. The one thing I do like is the instrumental stuff, which makes me wish this had been an all orchestra theme like “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.”
Oh well, guess we’ll see how Sam Smith’s song fits into the film when it comes our in November. Unless of course you live in U.K., in which case you get to see the movie a month from now. You lucky guys, you.
