Adele - Skyfall: A Theme Song CCD Can Get Behind


Bond movies will always have a special place in my heart no matter who is filling the role. I like Daniel Craig a bunch, but he is no Roger Moore. Yeah, I said it... Roger Moore is the best Bond, ever!!!! My reasoning has less to do with the actors who played Bond at any given time and more to do with the actual movies made during a particular actor's tenure. In my opinion Moore's run coincided with practical effects being much better than in the Connery era Bond movies and storylines that are wonky and a bit more non traditional. Moonraker & The Man With the Golden Gun are two of my all time favorite Bond movies and that is mostly because they have batshit insane plots. But this post is about Skyfall, the latest Bond movie that is Craig's third turn as 007. The movie comes out November 9th, and since it is trying to build some steam (like a Bond film needs self promotion to sell tickets) they have tapped current British it-girl Adele for the theme song. It has a throwback feel and I love the instrumentation. And her voice is perfection... pure perfection. Take a listen to the theme song after the jump and tell us what you think....

  2. At first I thought: "Adele? You gotta be kidding me!" But, you know, her voice is actually more appropriate to the tradition of Bond theme songs than some of the other artists who have attempted it in recent years.

  3. ...Oh, yeah, and you're wrong about Roger Moore. Everybody know that the best Bond was George Lazenby.
