It was only a rumor a couple of months ago, but the folks over at Showbiz411 confirmed that Adele will be singing the theme for the upcoming James Bond movie ‘Skyfall.’ The song will most likely be called “Skyfall” and was also probably written by the soon to-be-mom.
The 8-time Grammy winner will be joining the ranks of Tina Turner, Duran Duran, Shirley Bassey and many others who have created memorable Bond themes. I do hope it’s better than “Another Way To Die” from ‘Quantum of Solace.’ Although I love both Alicia Keys and Jack White separately, that collaboration wasn’t as good as it should have been. It was reported that Amy Winehouse was originally asked to sing the theme for QoS, but at the time she wasn’t healthy, and Mark Ronson had a falling out with her over the situation. (Did you remember that TODAY Amy would have been 29 years old?)
The 23rd Bond film will premiere in the UK on October 26th, and we’ll get to see it here in the States on November 9th.
So, what is your favorite Bond theme? How well do you think Adele’s will do? I’m partial to “You Only Live Twice” performed by Nancy Sinatra.
[Editor’s Note: DivaJulia’s favorite is a newer Bond theme–“You Know My Name” by Chris Cornell
from Casino Royale, Daniel Craig’s first appearance as Bond. James Bond.]
