Adele’s New Song “Skyfall”

If you were to walk up to 100 people at any time during the day and ask them who their favorite musical artist is, undoubtedly a large majority would say, Adele.  And without a doubt a number of them would have also seen a James Bond movie. But what happens when you add the two together? The answer is Adele’s new track, “Skyfall” which is also the title of the new James Bond movie that will be out next month.

The track starts out with that familiar ominous Bond orchestra sound.  This then leads into a slow piano section that is reminiscent of the original Bond theme by John Barry. Adele’s vocals come in, and lets just say she sounds amazing. The lyrics and melody slither together to create a very mysterious sounding verse. What sounds like a full orchestra comes in next and when this happens the song takes off to a new level.

This song will make you sit up in the movie and pay attention to the backing music. It’s a great composition, and I wouldn’t be if I said it was one of the best Bond themes.

    Ooh, I am here to create dissension in the ranks. 😉 I must be in the minority of people who are not Adele fans and who have still not seen ‘Skyfall’. Finally tried to see it yesterday at the only theatre that was playing it and it was SOLD OUT! Still?!!? Can you believe that? It sounds like I’m going to have to try again… 🙂

    Hey there, this is a great review! I just love the way Adele’s face is placed onto that Skyfall image. I thought the song was really good to, and her voice matched the instruments extremely well. She should definitely get an award for the song. She really deserves it.
