Media caption Bond song ‘not a classic but good enough’
Smith is the first solo male British act to perform the opening number for a James Bond film since 1965, when Tom Jones was heard over the credits for Thunderball.
Smith’s song, a mournful ballad, divided opinion when it was unveiled last week, with critics labelling it both “bland” and “beautiful”.
“When the song came out I was so nervous,” the singer said. “It’s impossible to bring out a Bond song that pleases everyone.
“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.”
Writing’s On The Wall follows the success of Adele’s Skyfall, which won a Grammy, an Oscar, a Brit Award and a Golden Globe.
Her song failed to reach the top of the charts because it was released on a Wednesday – meaning Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry Child prevailed, thanks to a 48-hour head start.
