Because it doesn't get the love it deserves. Maybe because it sounds so '90s; maybe because it's melancholic listening to it after watching GE, I don't know. I love when the credits play in GE just because of this song. Makes me want to watch the entire film again just to get to it again.

I find it horribly insipid, personally ... the Bono and Edge-penned/Tina Turner-performed theme song kicks it to the kerb, and then some.

Never been a fan of the rest of Serra's score, either ... if only Barry had been tempted back one last time. The fact that the tank chase had to be re-scored by someone else in order to include the Bond theme says it all.

The theme song is better, absolutely, and it's one of my favourite themes in the series. I just think this song is terribly underrated.

I think Serra's score adds a moody post-Cold War industrial sound to the film, and gives it a distinctive feel, which marries well with the atmospheric cinematography. Not to mention that his lush cues for the casino sequence and Natalya are highly evocative and romantic.

The key strength of Serra's score, in the wider context of Bondom, is that you can hear two seconds of it and instantly know which of the 24 films you're watching.

Yep - even from the opening moments of the gunbarrel. As good as Barry was, I never took to his gun barrel music post-TMWTGG because they're the same up until TLD, and they appeared to lose an edginess that the guitar riff evoked.

I like the score but this end song is a howl of pure pain.

I don't hear it. I hear someone strangling the cat in Sam Smith's song over a beautiful orchestration. Here we get a man's simple perspective of love, and Serra's suitably masculine voices enhances it.
