Their new song was supposedly "too melancholy".

Thank god we avoided that. Throwing my hands in the air and popping my pussy to 'Writing's on the Wall'

Yes, but when did Radiohead link to a fan edit? Would be interested to see if they "endorsed" something like that.
Just been fact checking and it appears I was talking bollocks sorry. I honestly thought they had linked to it from their 'public library' on radiohead.com but a)there's no sign of it there and b)they don't link to YouTube off that site. Bit odd as I've only recently come across that video but most likely it was linked to in a news story I read about the public library. Sorry about that.

Yeah it was quite refreshing when the Casino Royale theme tune came out as it didn't sound like your typical Bond song.

You Know My Name is one of my favourite latter day Bond themes but it does share a similar bombast to Live and Let Die so not totally without Bond precedent.

Just heard the Billie Eilish theme and it seems to be an anaemic mash up of Adele's Skyfall and Sam Smith's Writing on the Wall. Disliked both originally but eventually came round to them. I can't see it happening with No Time to Die.

Die Another Day is still the worst Bond theme ever by a long way.

Die Another Day is better than the following songs:

Another Way To Die
No Time To Die
Tomorrow Never Dies
The Writing's On The Wall
All Time High

If we take into account ANY of the music used in Bond and not just the themes, what's everyone's favourite? "Space March (Capsule in Space)" tops my list I think, followed by the incredibly funky "Bond '77".

I hate James Bond. The only thing even slightly related to Bond that's any good is Sock It To 'Em, JB

From the best Bond soundtrack to (nearly) the best Bond film.

The first crap James Bond theme tune was "The Man with the Golden Gun". John Barry had originally been hired because he was a quick writer, but in 1974 he didn't have the same energy, and the whole score is a rushed up job, done in three weeks, with the song being one of the worst examples. Even Barry hated the result.

"Another Way to Die" is another song put out quickly. They tried to get Amy Winehouse for Quantum of Solace, they waited a long time for her to record at least some workable demo with Mick Ronson, David Arnold even gave them a motive from his score as something to work with, but her abilities were already deteriorating. They then called Jack White, who had a very tight deadline to write and record, because the credits had to be designed around it.
A few months later, Arnold produced an album by Shirley Bassey, and he decided to write a song based on the motive he had singled out. It turned out to be "No Good About Goodbye", where he even got "solace" in the lyrics.

I do love the brass on that though, even if the song itself is naff.

They'd have been waiting for a long time. Ronson died in 1993.
