Sam Smith Regrets His ‘Spectre’ Song, From The Waist Down

Gotta grab 'em to get to those notes.

At this point, Daniel Craig has made it pretty clear he wants to leave the "sexist" James Bond role behind. We get it, the "Bond bank is dry" and you'd rather take a poison dart to the heart than suit up for the sequel to the upcoming "Spectre."

Guess what? You're not the only one who has song regrets about Bond -- serious regrets. Even Sam Smith, who sings the theme song to the movie, "Writing's On The Wall," is kind of second-guessing getting involved in the whole thing.

Don't get him wrong, he's honored, but he also has kind of a deeper (lower?) reason for hating his 007 connection.

"I’ve only actually sang the song once really. I did the demo in the studio, and they used it. It’s horrible to sing," he told English talk show host Graham Norton. "Horrible. I almost regret — no, I don’t regret... It’s just so high. I have to grab my balls, it’s awful." (Skip to 3:20 to hear Sam's regets.)

It's a thing, actually. Sam even admitted that he had to tweak the original version of the song once he got in the studio because the original lyrics were too "emotional" and "vulnerable" for a tough guy like Bond.
