Yesterday Radiohead made available for free download on Soundcloud the theme they were commissioned to write for SPECTRE. I thought it was brilliant, much better than the Sam Smith effort - and as a sort of proof of concept, I've applied it to the opening credits for Quantum Of Solace.

I like it. It's got the Bondian sinister wistfulness down pat.


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

Quite like it, reminds me of the Wallander theme


 

That was a telly programme and a half.

Oogh, like most Radiohead I don't like that at all.  Disturbing in a bad way, jarring and it makes my guts feel taut and strange.  Thom Yorke's voice has a fingernails-on-a-blackboard feel to me.  Also I can't find the time sig.

I absolutely love that Radiohead SPECTRE tune - gives me goosebumps. Absolutely beautifully intense, but with a dark, sinister edge - so much drama in it. Would have been hands down the best ever Bond theme.
