Sam Smith’s Balls Hate New Bond Theme, Too

According to his interview on The Graham Norton Show, Sam Smith’s balls are going to take a pounding when he starts singing “Writing’s On The Wall” live:

“I’ve only actually sang the song once really. I did the demo in the studio, and they used it,” he said. “It’s horrible to sing. Horrible. I almost regret — no, I don’t regret… It’s just so high.” Then he went a step further: “I have to grab my balls, it’s awful.”

Of course, whether or not Smith grabs his balls, the song will forever be a solid C-. It’s unfortunate that it had to follow Adele’s incredible “Skyfall” theme, one of the most incredible film tracks of all time, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. No reason to beat your balls up about it.
