ADELE MEETS BOND
It doesn't appear that Adele, one of the biggest (and most unlikely) pop stars currently on the planet will be releasing a new CD anytime soon but there is a new song just out to help ease the wait.
"Skyfall", is title of the latest 007 movie (due out in the U.S.on November 9th) and Adele has been given the honor of performing the theme song of the same name for this movie. The tune (written by Adele and her producer, Paul Epworth) fits perfectly in the tradition of the previous James Bond theme songs yet still feels quite fresh and modern. Let's be honest - most of these songs tend to land more on the cheesy side but I think this is one of the better tracks created for this long-running series which is celebrating it's fiftieth year since the release of the first film, "Dr. No".
Have a listen:
"Skyfall" - Adele (2012)
Here are a few of some other classic Bond theme songs that I luv:
"Live and Let Die" - Paul McCartney & Wings (1973)
"Nobody Does It Better" (From "The Spy Who Loved Me") - Carly Simon (1977)
"For Your Eyes Only" - Sheena Easton (1981)
