I kinda dig it. It manages to be very much Billie Eilish while also sounding James Bondish.
I felt the same way. Plus, my teenage daughter who loves Billie's music listened to it with me. She now suddenly is curious about the Bond film
Works for me.
What a comparison! I’d say she’s better. Though I’m not loving this Bond theme. Oh well.
that is a really cool song.
I like it, though the hushed, whisper thing, is already getting old IMO.
The strange thing is it gives me the same vibes as this song:
So in terms of newer soundtracks to rated R action films, I guess it fits. And Billie’s would fit well for the traditional title card sequence.
What a crap song. Next...
Agreed. I mean, it's no You Know my Name, but it's definitely got that Bond sound.
The good: It stays true to the classic Bond "feel" and is better than Madonna. It'll make a fine song for the opening credit sequence.
The bad: More mumble whisper singing and it is utterly forgettable. Madonna's actually stuck in my head more, even if it is a worse song. I really wish she had used her pipes more. The one long note at the end doesn't do it for me, even though it was desperately needed. Would've liked to have heard her build the second verse with her vocals more. It actually stays a little too true to the classic Bond "feel." (in this respect, there really is no winning...stray too far from the formula, and you get something like Madonna. Stick to the formula, and it's ho-hum).
I like it. There is a darkness too it that is needed for the Bond themes, IMO. Especially the Daniel Craig Bond films.
It is good and good enough. I mean, how many Bond tunes do you hum during the year, or ever think of it again? It is an appropriate song done well. Now, I will mess with your heads. Get GOLDFINGER out of your head;"he's got the Midas touch"!
I dig Eilish, so I dig the song, but can see how others may find it lacking. It will be hard to top Skyfall, Live & Let Die, or View To A Kill, those are the holy trinity Bond Theme Songs for me.
Interesting, I would put Live And Let Die and Nobody Does It Better in my top two.
I agree. I heard in an interview that she and her brother used to play around by writing Bond style songs just for kicks, so they had a lot of stuff to fall back on for this.
Picking up groceries and find Eilish is now front cover on whatever those checkout aisle mags are called.
I can't recall the last artist that got the 'big push' so effectively that even I noticed.
The star-maker machinery is still in place and working OT on this one.
Hopefully they do not crush the product.
Moody can be fine but this song stays in that sullen, down-beat mode the whole time. I think they should have had a "soaring" moment at least. It's supposed to be a Bond theme! Maybe that's too off-brand for this artist?
