I like to think of myself as a Bond fan. There’s not a bad movie, in my opinion. I don’t own them all on DVD, but I do enjoy a Bond marathon on TV from time to time. What I AM a fan of is Bond theme songs. Seriously. I have a mix CD (read: mix tape) of nothing but Bond themes. Nancy Sinatra’s “You Only Live Twice.” Frank’s “From Russia With Love.” Even Tina Turner’s “Golden Eye.”
When Daniel Craig took the helm as bond, the themes matured. Part of that change is the change in music. I think it turned darker. Craig’s Bond is a darker version (except for his hair, which is blond). So, when I heard Adelle’s “Skyfall” I fell in love.
First off, it’s Adelle. Let’s be real, she’s got the voice of a generation. Second, “Skyfall” is everything that Bond should be, especially Craig’s Bond. It’s sexy, dark, dramatic. You know the mood of the movie from listening to the song.
I love it.
