Music to read James Bond by

Adele's Bond theme for Skyfall has been released. I love it.


  1. Has anyone else noticed the chorus has th same chord changes as You Know my Name? You can sort of sing one along to the other at different speeds.

  2. I'm not thrilled by the slopping rhyming of Skyfall and Crum-ball but it's a good song. A bit long, some of the background vocals between verses could be cut in radio edits to speed it up. Will it be woven in to the soundtrack, though, as per usual with Bond scores? If the score composer works on the main theme, it usually is (see John Barry's work) but if the theme was outsourced (Die Another Day, Goldeneye, Licence to Kill), it usually isn't - and score composer Thomas Newman didn't write this with Adele.

    Saying that, David Arnold worked in tiny snippets of Another Way to Die into the Quantum of Solace score. Not much but tis there. (More than even the James Bond theme, in fact...)
