The new Bond theme

    The title song for the new Bond film is to be sung by someone called Billie Eilish (who her?), but here is my version, the theme to Thunder Golden No Balls Forever Twice Again

    A face like a raw Maris piper
    A lip you could wipe your feet on
    The ladies want to have all his babies
    But they might as well just dream on
    His suits so beautifully tailored
    To hide his weapon within
    He’ll murder his prey with compassion
    And do that incongruous grin

    anybody want to add? They get oscars you know!

    Billie Eilish has produced some excellent and very edgy music.
    I think she will add a new dimension to the Bond theme. Looking forward to hearing it.

    Every generation eventually has its "Who are The Beatles" musical moment.

    Not so.

    Everyone (even my granny) knew all too well who The Sex Pistols were.

    Yup. Liked that, will look at more of her stuff. Would have loved it when I was a whippersnapper :D

    Can’t stand most Bond films or Bond hype though so totally indifferent as to the PR surrounding the newest theme opus.

    I got a minute in before realising I had better things to do with my life.

    Dull as ditch water.

    It’s got no oomph.

    It’s supposed to be a Bond theme. :rolleyes:

    It only got going at the end! Kept waiting for a chorus and some crescendo.

    Bring back Bassey.

    Thinking about it, has Sir Tom Jones ever done one?

    That would be a cracker.

    It sounds like a watered down, slowed down, version of the Skyfall theme.

    They should have got Gunship to do it.

    Yes, Bombs! And the Sam Smith one! Was it Sam Smith?...

    Not impressed.

    Watered down like homeopathy. And just as effective.
