Writing’s On The Wall Music Video From ‘Spectre’ by Sam Smith

Sam Smith released the music video for his new ‘Spectre’ theme song, from the upcoming James Bond film. The video features Sam singing his chart topping, brooding ballad, while clips from the movie play out with Daniel Craig, Monica Bellucci and Léa Seydoux.

The theme song was co-written by Sam and Jimmy Napes. Although it has received varying reviews, the single hit number one on both the UK Singles Chart and Scotland in its first week.

English singer/songwriter Adele set the bar high after her theme song for the Bond film, Skyfall. When Smith’s track hit the airwaves, there were many who thought it had missed the mark. Our view of ‘Writing’s On The Wall’, has its own caveat.

On first listen I wasn’t super impressed either and thought it both slow and whiny. Similar to Adam Levine, Smith will always struggle staying out of a higher octave. No offence meant for either artist, we love them both; it just didn’t seem to go along with the tough guy Bond line.

Giving the song a second listen, I adjusted my view by reminding myself that the song is at first a theme song – in Bond films specifically, the one that plays to the movie’s long and usually psychedelic opening. With that in mind, the song took on a new feel and quite frankly, became more impressive with each listen.

Now that a visual has been added with the release of the official music video, ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ is worthy of at least, being on par with Adele’s ‘Skyfall’. Like me, I think even the skeptics will change their minds after watching the video, and by the time the film hits theaters in November – it could go down as the best James Bond theme song yet.
