What do fans think about “Writing’s on the Wall“? As for the lyric, “how do I live, how do I breathe?” How do I breath?
“With all my music I try to make it honest and personal, like it’s a diary entry, and I’ve wanted to do that but in the shoes of someone else”. “Thank you for all your fantastic messages”.
Sir Roger Moore, who played 007 in seven films between 1973 and 1985, said Writing’s on the Wall was “very haunting and wonderfully orchestrated”.
He follows in the footsteps of stars including Shirley Bassey, Madonna and Adele, who have all previously recorded Bond themes.
Check out the song below! That song bagged a Grammy for Song of the Year, and Smith has said he’s hoping to be the first Bond singer to nab a number one.
“Writing’s on the Wall” is available now for purchase on iTunes. I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line up of a few of my biggest musical inspirations. “I just wanted to write a love song-something classic”, he explained. So “Writing’s On The Wall” has everything you’ve come to expect from a Sam Smith song – handsome vocals, lovelorn agony – with all the sweeping grandeur of what we associate with Bond.
After the release, Jim Peakman wrote on Twitter: “After the opening sequence, a Bond song should be bold, exciting and get you up for the film”. The verdict? It’s boring, but Sam Smith is still good at singing, even though he comes dangerously close to overusing his rangy falsetto here. But the song never manages to build up tension and fails to give any character to the upcoming Bond film, unlike Adele’s Skyfall for the last movie.
