To keep it short, don't listen to her music, probably the first time I've heard her sing, may have been another but 'conveniently forgotten', bottom line is, I sincerely hope they take a different path with the theme intros, I don't know, maybe I just grew up on different sounds with James Bond and appreciate the older tunes better, this seems better suited to sixteen year olds or something
This sounds just like a variation of QOS, no no no, please take a different route :L
Musically she a very special person, she is outside the mainstream and yet folks like her.
That garbage that has been doing the job the last movies should never be allowed to return. The best rocktheme for the 007 franchise has been done by Paul McCarthy and has not yet been challenged by any later songwriter. They just don't have the musical genius in my book.
The last impressive female effort was Sheryl Crow, but then again she is a fine artist so no problems there
on topic, i like adelles music but i dont want her to sing the bond theme. i always prefered the rock tunes to the big, soulful voices (mcartney>>>bassey).
i kept praying for oasis to do a bond theme but they split up. and i dont want liam doing one solo, (or the new band whos name i forget)...
kasabian or kings of leon could pull out a cool bond theme imo. or maybe foo fighters, now there's an idea....
WHOA, WHOA, WHOOO, OOOOH, WHOOOOOOAH, BANG BANG BANG >:p X(
I still have trouble listening to the last intro, or even better, I turn audio off if I browse through any bits on Youtube
It's imperative they forget about the 12-16 year old group for next time out and go with something uplifting and gritty, something that makes you sit in the theater and think 'this could be a good outing'
You cannot simply forget an audience demographic to appease another. Especially one as important as the 12-16 years olds, which - like it or not - is quite possibly the most important demographic of all. Most fans first experience the James Bond films at a younger age, inside the teenager demographic. And that experience influences their like or dislike of the franchise or years to come. If you isolate and alienate a demographic - especially one that is as impressionable as that age group - then all you're going to do is drive potential fans away from the franchise for years to come. Even if they like effects-heavy, action-centric films. I'm sure that when you were 12-16 years old, your tastes weren't nearly as sophisticated as they are now. I know I wasn't; I was 15 when DIE ANOTHER DAY came out, and at the time, I thought it was fantastic. My opinion changed once I grew up a little more and saw the other films. But you can't just cut out a key demographic because it suits you.
And there is no evidence that Another Way to Die was chosen as the theme because it tested well with 12-16 year-olds.
No, I'm afraid they didn't play anything off those albums. 2 songs from the Wedding Album though, as well as the 1st, Rio and the most recent one.
Duran Duran is really putting out quality material lately, and I think they still could make another awesome Bond theme.
Though, I really think the Bond producers should use an artist they haven't used already. I think someone like Paul Weller (from The Jam and The Style Council) would be perfect, but also Bryan Ferry, David Bowie and Scott Walker would be awesome.
Adele could be interesting if the song is well written.
Goldfinger, Live and Let Die, Nobody Does It Better, A View to a Kill and You Know My Name. I'll throw in Surrender, too, even though it wasn't a main title song. (It should have been though)
I'll agree that the Bond songs, in general, were better 20 or 30 years ago than they are now (although I love Cornell's 'You Know My Name'). I find nothing remarkable from GE, TND or TWINE....they're not BAD songs, mind you, but just unmemorable. Madonna's Die Another Day was mind numbingly bad, and I just don't get Another Way to Die. For the record, AWTD works with QOS's title sequence...but when I listen to the song by itself, something is really off. It almost seems like Alicia Keys and Jack White are singing off key (especially when they are singing together). And what is with the ending, 'Yeah...yeaaahhh.....YEEEAAAAAAHHH-AYYY!' from Alicia Keys? It sounds like she was reaching her climax or something. That song is just so bizarre.
I don't think Adele is a bad choice at all. She has a somewhat unique quality to her voice that would be well suited for Bond. I think she could for sure give us a better song than 'Another Way to Die'!!!!!! But then again, so could many.....
Anyway, I'd be fine with Adele doing the theme.
Adele has been forced to cancel her 2011 shows in order to “undergo surgery” on her throat.
The 23-year-old singer has been diagnosed with a vocal cord haemorrhage. Adele will not be able to perform for the rest of the year as a result.
"[Adele] is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat and a full recovery is expected,” read a statement released on her behalf.
“As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments."
Adele is not happy with having to cancel her shows, which would have seen her performing across the UK this autumn.
"It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011,” the statement read further.
Adele has had issues with her throat all year long. She cancelled a 10-date tour of US shows earlier this month and was battling illness throughout the summer.
The singer’s voice is expected to heal entirely if she rests thoroughly throughout the remainder of the year. Adele will not risk permanent damage to her vocal chords.
"I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever," the songstress said on her website earlier this month when her US performances were cancelled.
"Singing is literally my life - it's my hobby, my love, my freedom and now my job."
Another lady popped up in the rumor mill at post-production moving picture company. I was there today and some engineers were talking about this band and 007, plus they these guys did some work on Bond films in the past. Maybe Risico you are right?
I prefer this lady as an alternative to Adele:
I never thought of Florence and the Machine.
Shes interesting, and very talented. She, of course, is Florence, but the Machine is the title of whatever band a certain song of her requires. She doesn't have specific band mates, usually just one group per album to create a certain sound.
I think she'd do very good with an orchestra!
I'm thinking her over Adele right about now.. but I'd be happy with either.
Adele has suggested that she will release a brand new song by the end of the year, further strengthening rumours she will record the official theme song for the next James Bond film.
Speaking to French radio station NRJ over the weekend, Adele discussed the future of her career and rumours that she may take five years out to make the follow up to her album '21'.
Denying this, Adele said: "I'm not going on a break for that long! I have to write another record, if I didn't write my own songs i'd be out next week with a new album, but because I write my own songs I have to take time and live a little bit. There was a good two years between my first and second album, so it will be the same this time."
"There will be a new song probably coming out at the end of the year, and then it depends how quickly I write some new songs - but it won't be for a good two years."
Adele previously suggested she might be making the official Skyfall theme during an interview with Jonathan Ross last year.
Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Adele has lost over a stone in weight since she turned vegetarian at the start of the year.
