I just survived Adele-attack at YouTube, and I don’t know what to say about that misterious theme song for the upcoming Skyfall movie. There was some strange mix of the classic James Bond theme and (allow me to say) a little bit of tango tune, but – that was just one of the songs I ran to. Then, I got my chance to hear the official 30 seconds of the new Bond theme, and trust me – that version had nothing to do with tango, so I just decided that it’s time for me to take a little nap.
Never mind, the most important thing at this moment is that Adele fans are happy with her confirmation from Monday, when she revealed that she had recorded the theme for Skyfall, but also added that she was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.
So far, the early comments and reactions are pretty good, and it looks that Adele has nothing to worry about. Just for a record, recent Bond themes have met with a poor reception (I like Tina Turner’s Golden Eye, and Madonna’s Die Another day, though), and look at us now – all searching Adele Skyfall theme song words all around the web.
Let us also mention that Skyfall was recorded at Abbey Road studios in London with a 77-piece orchestra, and the song will premiere online at 00.07am (UK time) on Friday, October 5th. In case you forgot, Friday marks 50 years of the James Bond film franchise, and will be celebrated as Global James Bond Day.
Until that happens let us all sing – let the sky fall, and when it crumbles we will stand tall and face it all together.
UPDATE! Forget the leaked version. The full, official theme song is now online. Here it is.
