Skyfall and Adele

Skyfall and Adele

The Bond marketting machine is in full overdrive now.

Must admit I thought it was a clever move having Adele do the theme. What do you make of this?
Does it show Adele to have a voice that is pale imitation of Shirley Bassey – it doesn’t grab me as a Goldfinger replacement as the most memorable Bond theme ever. Growing up A view to a Kill was my favourite – what is yours?

    I am partial to GoldenEye with Pierce Brosnan. I do like Adele’s sultry, lounge sound – it fits a Bond picture.

    It’s certainly a Bond theme in the traditional way – bold & brassy. But for me, ‘Goldfinger’ is still the number one Bond theme. However, Adele has certainly earned her Licence to Sing.

      Actually, the last part should read….Licence to Shrill!

    Not bad, not bad. I get the feeling that this is one of those themes which will grow on me over time. A little bit dreary, perhaps? But still, it’s definitely an improvement over Quantum of Solace’s theme. The lyrics aren’t as cheesy as the traditional Bond fare either, so that’s a slight plus in its favor. I’m definitely getting the feeling that this movie is going to be heavy on the melodramatics.

    BTW, best Bond theme: Mr. kiss kiss bang bang. Pity it was replaced with Tom Jones’s song!

    Still love ‘Live and let die’ bold, dangerous, exciting.
