Billie Eilish 's 007 theme 'No Time to Die' is one of the best we've had in some time – review

The flourish of violins, electronic guitar and faint brass all pay tribute to classic Bond theme tropes, but Eilish’s subtle synth motif makes this song her own

Ana de Armas, currently stealing the show in Knives Out, is the mysterious Paloma MGM Monty Norman ’s famous theme, with a flourish of violins and the twang of an electric guitar that recalls Vik Flick’s riff. Eilish’s rise-and-fall melodies have something of Chris Cornell’s “You Know My Name” about them, although without the rock bombast. The build is akin to “Skyfall” or Sheryl Crow’s “Tomorrow Never Dies”; the faintest rumble of brass feels like a respectful hat-tip to the Sixties sass of Bassey and Tom Jones . What makes it “Eilish” is that ever-so subtle but effective synth motif that runs in between the piano chords on the intro – a 2020 twist that marks “No Time to Die” as perhaps the only Bond theme that addresses how technology has changed things for both Bond and the music industry. The lyrics, meanwhile, cleverly play on Craig’s portrayal of 007, which has increasingly delved into the more toxic side of Ian Fleming’s character – Bond’s tendency to isolate himself, and how his cold, almost cruel treatment of those closest to him stems from a fear of placing them in danger. “I’d fallen for a lie,” she sings, “You were never on my side/ Fool me once, fool me twice/ Are you death or paradise?/ Now you'll never see me cry.” “No Time to Die” is by no means a bad song, in fact, it’s one of the better Bond themes we’ve had in some time.

It’s another dreary dirge like Sam Smith’s. Not Bond like at all. Typically English crap. Some twat satmys that about every new James Bond theme tune. I totally agree! And it fits the Bond style You drunk? 🤯 🌞 I like the James Bond 007 character. My favourite is Octopussy because it shows my country in a fair and unbiased light 💡 iKabirBedi Thanks for your support 😊 . RIP Roger Moore.

It’s so good
