Three years ago, Adele made Oscar history when her hit “Skyfall” became the first song from the 007 franchise to win in that category. With a victory at last month’s Golden Globes, the writing may be on the wall for Smith and Napes to repeat that success on Oscar night. In case you were wondering, the other Bond songs that had been nominated are: “Live and Let Die” from the 1973 film of the same name, “Nobody Does It Better” from “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977), and the title number from “For Your Eyes Only” (1981).
