    I think she has a good voice for a loungy, sultry Bond song. But I don't care much for her vocal and musical style otherwise. I binged about 10 of her songs/videos when I realized I didn't know much about her and wanted to see what ALL THE KIDS are talking about these days. I liked maybe 1 or 2. But I did like those. Hopefully it works for the movie.

    She whisper-sings every song. Not much impresses the kids these days.

    You're both right.

    Which makes her perfect for this era Bond.

    She's the only Gen Z artist that has worked for me, or at least left an impression.

    Wryan hit the nail on the head - don't much like her music, but she could work great for a Bond song.

    Find her forced angry face at all times to be unintentionally funny.

    I don't think she's terrible, i just wish her music had more diversity. Most of her "talent" is with her brother anyway.

    This song I listen to a lot.

    When its long due to "chaotic rewrites", can't say I'm too confident.

    What Bond has the most female characters that actually have a character? This one looks to have three.

    I guess it's not bad at all though Bond songs are due for some extravagance and power. Definitely a bit more powerful than the last one, which was akin to a squaling cat.

    I'm not even familiar with Eilish, but she can sing it seems.

    Did you like her whisper song at the Oscars?

    Hard pass.

    I wouldn’t say burn it with fire, just not an REM guy.

    I love both REM and B-52's Love Shack. That Ellish song is instantly forgettable.

    The best 007 song that never was is Bowie's "Lady Grinning Soul".

    First half of Bond song is not good, second half is better. She and her people need to realize her "ramp up" is not as interesting as they think it is.
