ADELE – Skyfall [Listen]

As if we needed to even write about this, it’s destined to be big either way and you’ve probably heard it already on all the other blogs so take it as the Universal Wax stamp of approval instead. As 007s return draws near in this years must see action spectacle, it brings with it a new Bond theme. After the recent 90 second preview that we were teased with the other week, the full 4 minutes 46 seconds are now available and I’ve got to say, as an appreciator of Bond themes over the years, this one’s a corker!

Big, bombastic and with all the swagger of the earlier (and I must say, better) Bond themes, Skyfall struts onto the scene with truly epic production and the beautiful voice of Adele. It has enough John Barry to be unmistakably Bond, but it’s more confident than recent Bond themes and is a whole lot classier to boot. It may be one large nod back to the sixties and it’s also not the best song ever written (well, it is a Bond theme what did you expect) but as far as fueling my excitement for the film, it’s done a bloody good job. Skyfall launches 26th October (UK). The single is out now in all the usual places and has already topped the iTunes chart.

And here’s a little treat for all you karaoke lovers out there…
