Radiohead have released the song they wrote for Spectre’s theme. The producers and film makers went for Smiths version in the end, but which do you think is better?
If you haven’t heard Radiohead’s take on Bond, here is a link to the soundcloud of it: https://soundcloud.com/radiohead/spectre
I can’t stand Sam Smith’s hideous caterwauling but good grief it’s better than this Radiohead dirge.
Sam Smith’s version is a million times better!
Neither are memorable but at least Radiohead’s is listenable.
I love Radiohead, but theirs is so low-key, unmemorable, and depressing. Bond songs can be mysterious, but all the best ones have their bombastic moments. Smith’s may have that awful falsetto refrain and may be more of a love song than a Bond song, but at least it’s catchy and has that beautiful string theme.
I loved the Radiohead song. That should have been the Bond theme for Spectre. Nothing against Sam Smith but I just think the Radiohead one is better.
Didn’t care for Radiohead’s version either, but they win this simply because Sam Smith’s dying rat screeches make my ears bleed.
Smith’s version is definitely the more commercial of the two. I don’t think the public would have taken to Radiohead’s version at all, not after Adele’s huge “Skyfall” hit. Had to vote for Smith.
