James Bond: Adele’s Haunting New Theme Song and Past Favorites
Singer Adele officially released her new James Bond theme song for “Skyfall” on Friday. The soundtrack is already a hit, jumping to number two on the iTunes singles chart.
The haunting lyrics bring some closure to what is likely Daniel Craig’s last Bond movie. “This is the end,” Adele sings. “Hold your breath and count to ten. Feel the earth move and then hear my heart burst again. For this is the end.”
The pregnant singer is filling some pretty big shoes. Performing the musical number is a top honor in Hollywood, and past songs like Paul McCartney’s “Live and Let Die,” Duran Duran’s “A View to a Kill” and Shirley Bassey’s “Goldfinger” have found huge success.
