Butch And D-Mal's James Bond Learning Tree Thread

Recommended Posts

My issue with modern Bond songs is they're trying to sound like Bond songs. Sam Smith's awful shit effort being the worst offender.

This a good song, and I like the chorus and the build. Reminds me a bit of a slower version of Garbage's crack at it.

Me likey - follows one of the traditional Bond chord sequences, and the really sparse instrumentation give it a timeless feel.  She's got a proper voice on her, too.

It's not a bad effort that. I bet it's good with a proper title sequence. The orchestral swells at the end of the chorus are great. I like the dynamics. It ticks a lot of Bond theme boxes, which some of the previous Craig themes (Casino Royale & Quantum Of Solace) haven't. Not that they weren't good songs, but they didn't feel like Bond themes.

I'm with Factotum. Cornell's is the best because it's objectively kickass.

It's not a proper Bond theme, just like it's not a proper Bond film. Billie Eilish's is both a great song and a great Bond song.
