Bringing Bond Themes Back To The Good Old Days.
For months Grammy winning artist Adele has been dropping hints that she had something big in the works and most assumed that it would be the theme for the 23rd James Bond adventure Skyfall. That news was confirmed a few weeks back and last night the song was released for all the masses. So how does the song stack up with other Bond themes? Have a listen and let us know what you think.
As far as this Bond fan(atic) is concerned it hits all the right notes. Our generation of Bond movies have been very hit and miss with their opening themes with the likes of Tina Turner and Chris Cornell giving us some memorable themes and some songs like Madonna’s “Die Another Day” and Jack White and Alicia Key’s “Another Way To Die” bringing hot garbage to the table. Skyfall sounds Bond-ish bringing back thoughts of Shirley Bassey belting out Goldfinger or her more subdued Diamonds Are Forever.
What are your thoughts on Adele’s offering? What are your all time favorites?
