Anything is better than the Jack White-Alisha Keys collaboration for "Quantum of Solace". Never have I rooted for an opening credits sequence to end more than for QoS.... and then the rest of that movie apart from the opening scene put me to sleep.

Wasn't she supposed to be taking something like 7 years off to focus on her boyfriend?

I love the song. It's nothing new, either for Adele or a James Bond theme, but I don't care. It sounds exactly like what it should sound like.

Aural comfort food.

I like a James Bond songs that sounds like a James Bond song. I could hear this without knowing it was the new Bond theme and know it was a Bond theme. And I appreciate that. Especially after the Alicia Keys debacle.
As for the movie...both of the last two James Bond movies put me to sleep. I don't like somber Daniel Craig as Bond. He has zero charm.

Step aside Shirley Bassey, Adele has taken the stage.

(I'm an Adele fan but I don't really like the song. I don't think it's up to Adele's standards and I don't think it's as memorable as some of the other Bond themes. Can anyone get Goldfinger out of their mind?)
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

As much as I love her, Madonna's Die Another Day was the worst theme. My favorite is maybe Tina Turner's Goldeneye (written by Bono and The Edge, fact-fans...).

I like it, though it does immediately remind me of Diamonds Are Forever. At least we'll be spared an Elton John hissy-fit.

One of my favorite Bond-esque songs is Storm by Grace Jones for the awful 1998 Avengers movie.

Do we know when she recorded this?

I love Adele but I don't think she has any emotional connection to this song. It's a phoned in recording. I love every song on 19 and 21 but this song is just OK. Her vocals are amazing, but they're always amazing.

Her vocals are obviously amazing and I really enjoyed the song. It sounds perfect for a James Bond film.

I can only imagine what Sondheim would make of the lyrics.

Like holding-hands-forever-as-the-skyfalls-but-you'll-never-have-my-heart.

But, like Taz says, it's definitely within the mould.

Yep, thirding Taz's assessment. I got momentarily reminded of Janelle Monae's "BeBopBye Ya" for the first few seconds of the song, but beyond that it was...pretty much exactly what you'd expect an Adele Bond song to sound like, down to the Bond theme in the harmonies.

So is James Bond.

I think it's perfect.

Luscious, If a Bond movie is done right, I would never descibe it as silly. Back in the day, pre Roger Moore, a new James Bond film was an event. At the time, there was probally no other film franchise like it. It wasn't until later in the series, that it became about jokes and absurd plotting. That is why I do like the Daniel Craig films. They seem to want to become a more serious film without the jokes and gimmicks.

Even my 9 year old said it sounded just like a James Bond song! We heard it on the radio today. I liked it.

I worked 11 hours today, and it literally came on the radio at least once an hour. Possibly more.

Artman... First off, let me start off by saying that I really enjoy a good Bond flick. The Bond franchise is one of, if not the most, successful movie franchises ever, and kudos to it for that. And I agree with you that the Daniel Craig Bond films are less tongue-in-cheek and have a more gritty slant to them, but come on... as someone who has seen every Bond film ever made numerous times over the years, they're all silly to one degree or another. I find it impossible to take any of them seriously.

I'm a huge fan of the Bond themes (for example, I love how the best of them verge on camp, which seems subversive in a way given the believed fanbase), and I like this more than some of the lesser ones, but it seems kinda... boring to me. Maybe it'll grow on me.

I hope we get a great credit sequence--the best of the Bond ones are so good, I could watch them back to back.
