    Love the song and love Billie Eilish! Happy to see her and Finneas going to Top of the Pops in U.K.! I think the song will blend in fantastic with the soundtrack!!
  • It is the best of the 5 Daniel Craig themes. But that is not saying much as they have all been really dreadful - particularly QOS and Spectre. Billie Eilish seems pleasant enough but this Bond theme is so dull.

    He just doesn't like a single thing since 2005. What a surprise, eh? ;)

    Arthurs is one of the original posters of http://danielcraigisnotbond.com/index/ from when the their forum launched, just so you know where he stands. At least Craig’s run is finally ending for those folks. It only took 15 years for their boycott to finally succeed. ;)
  • As a brief aside I’m at a Yarra Valley gig out of Melbourne where A-ha are playing tonight. Hoping for The Living Daylights but apparently they’re just doing the Hunting High and Low album. Fingers crossed!

    This comment of yours is the best of all. But that is not saying much as they have all been dreadful. This bond fan is so dull.

    A friend saw them play their acoustic version recently and loved it

    The replies to anyone that doesn't like Craig, are also a suprise.


    Only in an upsidedown world.

    That place still exists???

    I have a slight confession: the song has grown on me and I like it a little bit more than I did when I first heard it. I suppose my overall disappointment was that we'd gotten another moody ballad, making it three on the bounce now. But it certainly gets better the more you hear it, which is more than I can say for TWOTW. I still think we'll get a heavily edited down version for the title sequence, just like we did with TSWLM, otherwise the titles are going to be one major slog to sit through.

    Am guessing Daniel Kleinman is half-way crafting ideas for the song's title sequence....maybe they're assembling models for it. I don't need faces from Bond's past this time though. But I can understand why Kleinman did that....SP was looking like Craig's last Bond.

    I suspect the title shoot is already underway @GadgetMan. It's just shrouded in secrecy, much like the majority of this production.

    I've just noticed that the SF titles were around the 4 minute mark, so it's feasible they might go with the entire song. Here's a sample video that someone's set Billie Eilish's song to the SF titles, and it clearly works...

    Yeah, I think the shoot should be underway....Am sure Kleinman would do a stellar work. Maybe a more action-packed & linear sequence like CR's...which I think is almost an entertaining short film on it's own.

    Daniel Kleinman did the title shoot in early december. There was an article where it was confirmed.

    That's interesting to know, thanks. I must've missed that article.

    I would say, listening to this, that it would be hard for anyone to say that this is an awful Bond theme or piece of music.

    Talk about dedication.
  • No Time To Die is a great Bond song One of the very best of the last 30 years. I wasn't too impressed on first listening but now I love it. Billie has had a lot of hate directed at her on social media. The trolls should back off.

    Dooon't rush to judgment on something like that until all the facts are in.

    Congratulations to Billie Eilish reaching UK number 1, I must confess its the first time I have looked at the charts in years. It can only be a positive for the film.

    I find it both amusing and pathetic. It seems to be mostly middle aged men who seem to have nothing better to do than attempt to cyberbully an 18 year old just because they don't like her song.

    I'm a middle-age man (a month younger than DC). I like it a lot. It's not a song I would listen to if it weren't connected to Bond, but as a Bond song, I think it's terrific. And for the first time in a long, long time, my daughter and I have something to listen to and sing together in the car. (I think "Royals" by Lorde was the last one. LOL)
  • Just to complete my earlier aside, A-ha finished their gig with a 12 minute, crowd-involved The Living Daylights jam. It was magical. They incorporated some original bond theme riffs too. Made my day! Ahem, carry on.
