Billboard ^

Posted on 09/13/2012 8:27:08 AM PDT by Perdogg

Adele may be the latest diva to sing for James Bond, according to the Sun.

The UK publication reports that Adele was spotted at Abbey Road Studios earlier this month, where composer Thomas Newman has been reportedly at work on the score for "Skyfall" -- the next film in the long-running spy saga. Past contributors to the Bond series have ranged from Paul McCartney to Nancy Sinatra to Madonna.

A good reason to not see the midget who is currently playing Bond in one more cynical attempt to squeeze a few bucks out of Fleming’s franchise. Didn’t see “Quantum of Solace”. Won’t see this one.

She’s beautiful and humble and has the best smoky voice in the biz.

The only thing wrong is she did not choose to protect her child with marriage. (she is pregnant)

I agree. Along with her voice, she also has considerable talent as a songwriter.

She should send a thank-you note to whomever broke her heart. Thanks to him (or them, if there was more than one), she’s famous. :)

If you like Adele’s voice (and I do) , check out Clairy Brown and the Bangin’ Rackettes. They do the current Heineken commercial and she’s really great

Adelle singing the title would be great, but I’d buy a ticket just to hear another Thomas Newman soundtrack. I believe he is perhaps the greatest soundtrack composer of all time. Just listen to Meet Joe Black.

Nancy Sinatra - You Only Live Twice - best Bond Song in my book.

And she was hittable as long as you were not concerned that Dad would knock you off.

Adele not so much but no life expectancy concerns.

Thanks for the ping Perdogg. Reading through replies it sounds like she has a great voice. Wish I could hear and appreciate music well but hearing loss prevents it. I am “stuck in the oldies”, lol!

[I am sorry to learn that.]

Ah yes, I’ve written it many times so it’s no secret. When I was around 30yrs old they discovered I already had severe hearing loss - and no explanation! Naturally, it has progressed and I’ve lost all the ‘high’ tones so I can’t fully enjoy music anymore. Use caption for TV, don’t go to the movies............ Life is what it is, lol.

For a golden girl knows when he’s kissed her
It’s the kiss of death from Mister Skyfall
Pretty girl, beware of his heart of gold

I think Joanna Newsom would make a great singer for a James Bond movie. Especially if she played her harp as well. Maybe next time.
