Adele Sings New James Bond Theme, Skyfall

Tit for tat: A classic track for a classic film franchise

In true James Bond fashion, the class and glamorous allure of “Skyfall” will inebriate, ravish and ultimately escape you. Written by Adele and Paul Epworth, its rich arrangement and production – rightly so, for a 007 song – will string you along and eventually sweep you off your feet.

I was half-expecting the movie franchise to pick up Muse’s “Supremacy” and it’s heart-breaking they didn’t, but as far as biases go, I am very proud of Adele for the achievement. Responsible for the hits “Rolling in the Deep” and “Set Fire to the Rain,” she adorns the James Bond appeal with champagne and a black dress. Not at all dirty and brash, but menacing all the same.
