Radiohead’s Rejected Song for Bond Film “Spectre”

radiohead-spectre-

It turns out the rumors about Radiohead recording the theme song for the latest James Bond film were true after all. The film ended up with Sam Smith’s “Writing’s On The Wall” but this weekend Radiohead shared their rejected track “Spectre”. I haven’t seen the film so I couldn’t tell you if it goes with it at all, but it’s a beautiful song. Have a listen to “Spectre” below and download it while you can!

20musicvideos-2015

Here’s my picks for the 20 best, most creative, funny, beautiful, memorable videos of 2015. I don’t believe any other sites chose the video I picked for Video of the Year. It took me awhile to edit this down from a list I had of 50 or so videos. Hope you find a couple that you overlooked this year, and if you disagree with my list, let me what your top 20 is in the comments. FKA Twigs is not on this list so let the disagreements begin.

Watch all the videos below!
