I think adults should be grown up enough to admit when they're wrong.

When he asks Fields to help him find the stationary, you can hear a bit of the "Another Way To Die" melody in there.

13 seconds in.

I've listened, but I'm having a hard time hearing any few seconds of AWTD from 13 seconds in till 18 seconds in when it is clearly the Bond theme. During that four/five seconds of cue I find it hard to believe it isn't just a rift on the slow James Bond theme instrumental we get during the whole scene.

I've noticed when they get the brand out there, it really helps. I recall seeing 007 everywhere I looked when Die Another Day and Skyfall came out, and those films both did extremely well. So far I think they're doing a better job for NTTD than they did for SP. I know people were worried a few months ago, but I really think they know what they're doing this time. If only people weren't still asking me if Idris Elba is starring in this one...

Well then I can't help you because that is note for note the melody of Alicia Keys' first line in the song.

Whew, thought I was going to have to write another song to bring everyone together:

Sure we bicker and fight, for we each think we're right
But does that mean we can't all just get along?
Should Bond fandom unite, gone would be sneer and slight
And no Bond fan could ever, ever be wrong.

Yet those who are contrite, and those who've seen the light
Know we can disagree and still be quite strong
If we simply stand tight, under a common smart rite
And take to heart the point of this catchy song.

CHORUS (Repeat as often as necessary):

Gassy Man knows better than you.
Gassy Man know better than you
When you're in doubt, no need to pout
Just remember Gassy Man knows better than you.

I'm still working on it -- I'm trying to find phrases that rhyme with "now bow down before me" and "that opinion stinks like last week's fish" -- but you get the idea.

According to British tabloid The Sun, Billie Eilish recorded her Bond theme in the UK after she had her birthday, which is 18 December. "It is believed Billie jetted here to put the finishing touches to the track at the famous Abbey Road Studios in West London just days after her 18th birthday."

Another Billie Eilish scoop by James Bond Australia.
https://www.jamesbondaustralia.com/2020 … p-podcast/

Eilish's brother, Finneas, told a music podcast that; "We were not really 'approached' about it. We fought it out for a year. We've always wanted to write a James Bond theme song. And you know, it's a legendary franchise, so we had to convince a lot of people that we were the right choice. And then we had to wrkite a song that everybody liked. So it was a hard won process...we got to work with Hans Zimmer and Steven Lipson in the studio."

I'd love to know who else was fighting for it for a year.

So if they were working with Zimmer for a year now does that mean he's been working on the score for a year as well?

I think it's more likely they had a deadline to make the song choice, and originally they weren't bothered about the song being part of the score, but the timing of Romer's departure and Zimmer's availability made it possible and Finneas and Billie were probably selected late last year because they recorded it just before Christmas; so it's quite recent that the track was even laid down. I suspect that Romer's departure was earlier than anyone suspects, even earlier than JamesBondRadio's knowledge of it.

I don't think Zimmer came in until it was nearly time to record the song. This leads me to believe I'm right that Zimmer is just working as a producer on the song.

Yeah after re-reading it Finneas didn't say he worked with Zimmer for a year just that they've been working on the song for a year. Wonder if they worked with Romer as well?
