No Time To Die: The verdict on Billie Eilish's James Bond theme

The verdict on the teenager's ballad for Daniel Craig's final outing as 007, which she released overnight.

Report End of Youtube post by BillieEilishVEVO No Time To Die opens with a haunting piano motif, with the star's voice weary as she sings," I should have known I'd live alone ". A familiar tremolo guitar ushers in the chorus, where the singer develops her theme:" I've fallen for a lie... Are you death or paradise?" " Now you'll never see me cry," she concludes." There's just no time to die ." The words seem to confirm a fan theory that Daniel Craig's final outing as Bond will see him double-crossed by Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux), his love interest from the previous film, Spectre. Off-kilter Eilish wrote and produced the title song with her elder brother Finneas O'Connell late last year. Speaking at the Grammys in January, she said working on the franchise had always been one of their goals. "Subconsciously and consciously, we've been trying to write a Bond theme for our whole lives," she told E! News. Read more: BBC News (UK)

Shame it’s too much like Adele’s Skyfall but a lot more depressing Vile. It’s a grower Well that song is a load of shit. Why are they even using her anyway. She is a waste of oxygen Shocking! Its excellent very bond like some of you need to watch more bond films Total crap. Just wait for the movie. You've got to see in context

Never heard of her A bit samey. Fucking horrendous

Billie Eilish releases 007 theme 'No Time to Die'Grammy-winning singer wrote and performed the music for the forthcoming 25th Bond film what's the point? no one has, can, or will surpass Shirley Bassey's Goldfinger. no one Not Carly Simon “nobody does it better” or “The spy who loved me” or Bon Jovi‘s and the many other classes. but I will give her a chance even though her vocal cords are not the strongest 😐

It's a great song from a great singer. It clearly will fit the storyline and has a sound that captures both herself and the new Bond franchise. Sad there are those judging on looks, or the old Bond themes. They will likely not have listened to it and judged on the picture. Like her voice don’t like the song it’s forgettable

Get our Shirley Bassey or Tom Jones to do the bond theme, we want to hear some real music, someone with talent and who can capture our interest not make us fall asleep before the film has even begun. Just as rubbish as the samsmith song Not sure anyone will ever get to the end of that song, feels like it drags very slowly, got bored before I even heard the very talented Billie sing a word. Shame, not her fault, great singer.

Its a poor version of Skyfall but its better then I thought it be. Should have got Adele in again to save the Bond songs. That’s now the last two that have been grim. Who is he Just heard it on the radio and already can't remember a lot from it. It must be comforting to know that when you set out to do a Bond theme, it can never be as bad as that one Madonna did. This ain’t no ‘Live and Let Die’ though is it.

These are the Sky shows we’ll be watching in 2020 – including Billie Piper’s new dramaSky has just launched a trailer for its new 2020 shows, and we are already obsessed.

She just looks very scary. No one does it better than DameShirleyBassey Enunciate!! as only understood song title Silly cow I quite like this. It's no Carly Simon or Duran Duran but it sounds like it'll suit the mood of the film Thought the grunge band look died out in the 90’s? It's awful. I thought the Sam Smith effort was bad but this somehow manages to be even worse.

Meh Very Bond-esq in my opinion. Bring back the good old fasioned Bond themes What do you think? Bader_music

Chris Evans' Virgin Radio absence explained after star-studded event with ex Billie PiperCHRIS EVANS - who fronts a self-titled show on Virgin Radio - was noticeably absent today after hosting an event last night, which was also attended by his ex-wife Billie Piper.

Flat song, lacks any oomph. I guess that's the price you pay to try and attract a younger audience to the Bond franchise. Some dinosaurs on here. It’s a nice song that has all of the Bond-esque parts to it. Those who don’t like it were expecting a Shirley Bassey hit probably. No time to listen to THAT. Boooooooring

That was pretty boring. The only words I understood where the title of this film. Enunciate!!!!! The boomers who follow BBC on twitter getting salty about this is just delicious. It must suck to slowly be realising how irrelevant your stagnant views on pop culture have become though... Zzzzzzzzz........

Adele’s was better

Billie Eilish's 007 theme 'No Time to Die' is one of the best we've had in some timeThe 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 Mañana sale la nueva canción de san smith a cagar gente... just wait for it realDonaldTrump's take on Bond25

Why does she insist in wearing pyjamas and rubbing snot into her hair? Over hyped, woke on steroids poor attempt at a Skyfall copy Did they ask her to rip off Adele? Great song! It sucks. Please don't hype it. It's garbage. The bridge is barely existing, there is no melody. No tune. Nothing remarkable, memorable about it. Absolute garbage. Sounds like she's nodding off from dope while trying to remember a nursery rhyme. Awful. She ugly too, doesn't help

But plenty of time to KILL IT Utterly dreadful. Worse than Sam Smith’s, and that takes some beating in the terribly bad Bond theme stakes ! Dull. Easier to borrow the theme to Luther. Disappointed ☹️ Wasn’t Adele available? Doesn’t come close to Live and Let Die

James Bond: No Time To Die theme song released TOMORROW - Check out first listen here NOWJAMES BOND'S new theme song by Billie Eilish will be released tomorrow, the singer has announced as she shared a teaser clip of the upcoming song.

Bit like Skyfall. There better be some heart pumping action before the opening credits, this crap will put you to sleep otherwise. Tried and failed at sending out skyfall vibes. Still probably the best song she's ever made though. I can't stand her or her music. psy cho It’s horrid. Agree with the lyrics too much to bear....

I have a feeling this girl ain’t gonna have a long successful career... We've had 3 Bond songs in a row now where it sounds like someone is crying. My Queen I like the girl, but this song is dull. Theyve went for Skyfall atmospherics but fallen way, way short.

She’s got a very long tongue 😛 She uses her audacious style to stop people seeing her in a sexual way. You spelt dull and boring wrong... Who's Billie Eilish... Can't stand this girl! And her stupid hair!!! Nice (Hans Zimmer's) Bond theme. His fingerprints are all over this thing. It is good, though. another blow for 'womens rites.' creasin
