'Writing's On The Wall' tops UK charts

02-Oct-2015 • Spectre (2015)

Sam Smith's love ballad, 'Writing's on the Wall' has hit number one on the UK charts, making it the first Bond theme song to achieve this placement in the UK.

Telling BBC radio about his reaction, Smith gushed: "Out of all the songs I've brought out in my life, I was not expecting this to even chart in the top 10, let alone number one. It's unbelievable."

"It's impossible to bring out a Bond song that pleases everyone," added the singer about the hot-and-cold reaction that listeners have had to his contribution to Bond lore. "Everyone's had mixed reviews when they bring one out, but the charts don't lie and people seem to love it and enjoy it and that's just the most magical thing."
