(Radio.com) Sam Smith Surprised He Was Up Against Radiohead For Spectre Theme was a top 16 story of 2016: Smith won a Golden Globe for his James Bond theme, "Writing's on the Wall." Backstage, a reporter asked if he was surprised to hear the Radiohead song in contention for Spectre's signature track. His answer was, at first, rather obtuse.

"Thom Yorke?" a confused Smith offered his collaborator Jimmy Napes, who provided a lifeline with the word Radiohead. "Yes, I was a little bit surprised," continued Smith. "Not going to lie, but I haven't listened to it personally because I did the Spectre theme song."

Around the holidays, Radiohead released their shot at a Bond theme, simply titled "Spectre." The band graciously explained that the partnership with studio decision-makers didn't go anywhere. Read more here.
