The 13 Snarkiest Tweets About Sam Smith s New Bond Theme Sam Smith so emotional gif


Earlier today Sam Smith released “Writing’s on the Wall,” his song for the upcoming James Bond film Spectre. I’m not a Bond fan, but I am a fan of listening to music and giving my opinion on it, so I gave it a whirl. I have to say I really did not enjoy the experience. I found it a little boring and pretty unmemorable, and Sam’s voice sounded particularly grating to me. (I’m not the biggest fan of it to begin with, #sorrynotsorry.) I thought the background orchestration was the best part.

You can listen to the full song on Spotify, or hear a 2-minute preview from BBC radio below.

It turns out I’m not the only one who wasn’t thrilled by the tune. A Twitter search of terms related to the song revealed a lot of negative responses. Some people have even accused Sam of ripping off Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song.” Because there’s nothing I love more than Twitter snark, I pulled some of the most scathing tweets for your perusal.

The cat comparison seemed to be a popular one.

Like I said.

Well, that’s just not fair. Sam at least has a wider vocabulary than “meep.”


This one might be my favorite.


Wish I’d seen this earlier.

Sorry, Sam. A for effort.

Badum bum chh!

I see what you did there.

…yawned and yawned and…

Hey, maybe they can sell it as a sleep aid.

This is the most creative burn I’ve read in a while. Snaps.
