Perhaps the filmmakers will provide subtitles during the opening song on screen?

Something is not right here.

It is like we are getting this

Why are all the Bond songs so dour these days?

James



Bond films are no longer "adventures." They are now grim tales of deceit.

The producers knew she was a mumbler when they hired her. They must have been over the moon when she swept all the Grammys recently. You can't buy that kind of publicity.

When she sang "Yesterday" over the Oscar's "In Memorium" last week, if I hadn't been familiar with the song, I doubt I would have understood a word she was saying.

Am I the only one, who heard some notes from Gary McFarland's Eye of the Devil?

It's good in the parts where she doesn't sing. There it sounds like Bond music.

Does she live in a iron lung? Sounds like it.

Did Hans Zimmer do the arrangement?

Sounds reminiscent of a Lana Del Rey song.

Eilish will perform the song at next week's Brit Awards show, accompanied by Zimmer and Johnny Marr.

Here are the lyrics:

I should have known
I’d leave alone.
Just goes to show
That the blood you bleed is just the blood you owe.
We were a pair,
But I saw you there.
Too much to bear-
You were my life, but life is far away from fair.
Was I stupid to love you?
Was I reckless to help?
Was it obvious to everybody else
[CHORUS]
That I’d fallen for a lie?
You were never on my side.
Fool me once, fool me twice-
Are you death or paradise?
Now you’ll never see me cry,
There’s just no time to die.
[VERSE TWO]
I let it burn.
You’re no longer my concern (mmm).
Faces from my past return,
Another lesson yet to learn,
[CHORUS]
That I’d fallen for a lie.
You were never on my side.
Fool me once, fool me twice.
Are you death or paradise?
Now you’ll never see me cry
There’s just no time to die.
No time to die (mmm)
No time to die (ooh)
[OUTRO]
Fool me once, fool me twice.
Are you death or paradise?
Now you’ll never see me cry,
There’s just no time to die.

Correct answer. And that's exactly why they lost me as a fan (and I was a HUGE one) after 2006 Casino Royale.

Vaguely in the style of Writing's on the wall and more than a little depressing in tone. I do like the piano lullaby-like melody which with the lyrics is setting a tone of deceit and betrayal for the plot. Steve Mazzaro apparently arranged it and I think if they use the basic melody in the score it could be effective especially in a more upbeat arrangement. As for Ms. Eilish I'm just not that impressed. She can carry a tune but has a pretty unremarkable voice. I think her songs appeal more to her young audience who let's face it are in the majority teenagers, some full of angst god bless 'em. We've all been there at sometime I suppose. I must admit I miss the more driving Bond songs of the past, the last being the astounding You Know my Name, but we've got what we've got so it's over to you Hans to save the day.

It's massively disappointing, just like the Sam Smith song.

I can't imagine anyone in the world of Soylent Green picking this as their going-out music...

I think they need to get someone who writes the songs for CeeBeebies to pen the Bond songs.
They're always catchy and happy and upbeat. I'm usually singing them ALL DAY afterwards.

Nah, the Sam Smith song was a travesty.

This isn't bad - its just not a Bond song.

Matt Dunkley did it "with" Zimmer. Just looked it up.

There are great Bond songs (“You Know My Name” “Live and Let Die” “Goldfinger”) and there are utterly dire Bond songs (“The Man With The Golden Gun” “Another Way to Die” “Die Another Day”). This one falls into the blandness of the later Moore era. The only difference is, I could still understand what Rita Coolidge and Carly Simon were sayng. This mopey emo stuff does nothing for me.

real bond songs

different times - different movies

John Barry is out of contest, of course (apart from The Man with the Golden Gun)
