Skip to comments."Skyfall" Theme to be released at Midnight Eastern Time (on youtube now)
Posted on 10/04/2012 6:34:33 PM PDT by Perdogg
It is on the Youtube. I am not sure if it would be a DMCA violation by linking it, but it is out there and will be availible to buy on itunes and Amazon at midnight eastem time.
It is good. It is not overtracked, but I am wondering if the jacked up the recording volume or it is just the quality of the track.
I am glad it is not a crossover, good movie theme.
Bond music ping
Adele brings it. Love her voice.
Hoid it. Her voice is mixed low, maybe because the vocal performance is rather weak, like a wannabe somebody else, Shirley Bassey, Dusty Springfield.
Drudge has a link on his site.
this is adele’s youtube channel
How can posting a Youtube link be a problem? It’s on her website:
Thank you as well.
Bad things are indeed wrong...with your ears.
My ears are fine, and judgment, apparently, better than yours.
Love it old school JB music.Reminds me of Dame Shirley Bassey.
Yes it does.
It’s really a pity that so many come here to insult and make themselves feel superior, all of it anonymously, of course, and are unable to discuss issues on their merits. Low intelligence, or low self-esteem? I don’t know.
I know that the recording I heard once was not up to par for a couple of reasons in my opinion which I listed. Also, I think the mix we hear was intended for movie theaters and the visuals. I am a little familiar with Adele, my daughter pointed her out to me a year or so ago. I wasn’t terribly impressed, though certainly she’s not bad at all, but I found something in her vocals was lacking, and I find it again today.
The begining of it sounds like it was sampled from “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” and the ending and the Bond theme in the middle of song sounds like it was sampled from David Arnold’s “The World is Not Enough”.
It’s ok to move past the 70’s.
The song is availible now through itunes.
you can always get at least 15% of people to disagree with anything.
Yep gotta agree with you a mixture over the years.
Check this out..It grows on you..
Sturgeon’s Law: “Ninety percent of everything is crap.”
Oh, and my old man’s law: “If it’s popular, there’s gotta be something wrong with it.”
360,000,000 people can’t be wrong! But after I watched it I still wanted to watch another video.
Good stuff. Thanks for the post.
My kids love it,what can i a say.
Its on I-tunes now, and very nice.
Love how it invokes each and every “Bond tune” through the many years. Just little riffs that we all know well.
The opening riff is from OHMSS. The ending riff is from The World is Not Enough. The Bond Riff is from TWINE.
The song seems average to me. Adele is a good singer. The song just isn’t that impressive as a song. The lyric was unimpressive. The sampling of other Bond themes/songs was a good idea. The intro was actually tedious. Goldfinger was much more impressive: more challenging song, greater vocal range, more interesting sounding melody.
Still, this is better than Duran Duran’s Bond song!!!
Did you find the orchestration, as I did, a bit too much, overproduced? The tune does not seem memorable, does it.
I like this version too...That chick is hot.
Oh nose, the bad guy (if that’s what he is) appears to be... GASP! gay!
Is Javier Bardem a gayfer in the movie? I know that some Bond movies have depicted some of the villains as such.......but Javier? Just d@mn!
Oh, and my old mans law: If its popular, theres gotta be something wrong with it.
He IS wise.....and give him a hug!
I agree. I’m not saying it’s a bad song (like Paper Lace’s Night Chicago Died), I just can’t see how it lives up to the hype. Also, doesn’t it go on for about 40 to 60 seconds too long?
Compare it to this classic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MagCoUYvIXE Don’t you get the feeling they were shooting for a 21st century Goldfinger but fell short because the music they wrote just wasn’t memorable and the lyric was rather vacuous or inane.
And listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pcwAQoux-g If that really is from the soundtrack, isn’t that more memorable than Adele’s song? Seriously.
And “Skyfall” needs more cowbell too. :)
Yes, I listened to the Storm and remember the theme, as I don’t recall a note of Adele’s song.
Adele is very good, and this song sounds like a Bond song should.
But Shirley Bassey singing “Diamonds Are Forever” is still the best Bond song, IMHO.
It grew on me fast. Something about that guy is so strangely appealing.
Thanks for the link. You just never know what you will find on FR.
I get knocked down, I get up again, I go march in anudder Red Commie Bastard protest rally...
Would have worked better if the singer was Chinese. He's Korean.
My kids love it..seemingly the guy taught madonna dance moves.
Yes she is she has that anime doll look..
LOL..I totally missed that..
I’m surprised they’re going back to having the title of movie be the title of the song.
I guess Skyfall is a lot easier to work in than the last 2. ;)
