Nice!
 
2012-10-26 02:18:21 AM  
She really is the perfect choice to do a Bond theme. I bet she could belt out the Shirley Bassey numbers.
 
2012-10-26 02:45:28 AM  
I could have been Adele singing that, but I took an arrow to the knee.
 
2012-10-26 06:06:33 AM  
Can't understand what small flying horses have to do with the film. Guess I need to go see it to understand why we need to worry about sky foal.
Is Krum Bowl the villain?

Oh, and to set the record straight, Nancy has best theme song..... As any fule no

Don't care about the theme just want the movie. NOW!

I used to be a double-oh agent like you until I took a Walther PPK round to the knee.
 
2012-10-26 08:59:02 AM  
Pretty much what a Bond theme should be... Classy. I like it.
 
2012-10-26 09:02:40 AM  
Eh, it's no 'For Your Eyes Only'.

Looked for silhouettes of women with pointy nipples, was disappointed.
 
2012-10-26 09:02:42 AM  
Now THAT'S what I'm talking about. You do that from now on!
 
2012-10-26 09:04:17 AM  
Actually... it's pretty goddamned good.
 
2012-10-26 09:07:59 AM  
Song is good - really good - wouldn't call it the best Bond theme ever (Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger, even Live and Let Die).

I like it, but I also liked the Theme to "Tomorrow Never Dies"
 
2012-10-26 09:10:53 AM  
It is awesome, and very "Bond". But, Live and Let Die is best.
 
2012-10-26 09:11:32 AM  
It's no "Die Another Day", but ok.

Top five Bond theme songs in order of release (coincidence?):

1. Another Way to Die (from QoS) - Jack White & Alicia Keys
2. Goldeneye - Tina Turner
3. A View to a Kill - Duran Duran
2. Goldfinger - Shirley Bassey
1. Original Theme from Dr. No - John Barry Orchestra

This.

It's not bad, I'm just not an Adele fan.
 
2012-10-26 09:12:11 AM  
I kind of find this one boring. Maybe I just don't like Adele, or lyrical malaise.

personal favorites
You know my name
A view to a kill
Shirley Manson
For your eyes only
 
2012-10-26 09:12:29 AM  
Good, but honestly not even in the top five.

TigerzDad: Song is good - really good - wouldn't call it the best Bond theme ever (Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger, even Live and Let Die).


It's certainly up these with the classics. I'd also add "Nobody Does It Better" to my list of the best bond themes.

Best song from any Bond film isn't a theme song, it's Louis Armstrong's last masterpiece, "We Have All the Time in the World" from OHMSS.

Oops. I really should have included that.

Angry Buddha: 1. Another Way to Die (from QoS) - Jack White & Alicia Keys


Also this one (good description of being a spy IMO)

I wish all lists were palindromes in ranking
 
2012-10-26 09:14:40 AM  
1) Does not disappoint.
2) Subjective ranking is subjective

Available for purchase on iTunes since October 5. And I heard it on the radio (yes, the actual radio) at least once a few weeks ago.

Today's date: October 26.

Number of Farkers calling this out as a bullshiat promo greenlight: one (that would be me).

2012-10-26 09:17:47 AM  
I'd go with this

cdn.whatculture.com

with Live And Let Die a very close second.
 
2012-10-26 09:18:11 AM  
I like the Chris Cornell one, but it lacks the subtle enigmatic tone of Skyfall, which admittedly is more apt for a Bond theme.

Same here. Already have tickets for IMAX a week from today... wish I was in London so I could go tonight.

meh. it's no view to a kill.

This is farking horrible.. the theme to casino royale was MUCH MUCH better.....
Casino Royale Theme

Total bullshiat promo. However, I do have to give it to Adele here. I LOVE Bond themes and she did a great job on this one. I need to play with it in my head a while before I decide ranking, but I don't think it will make top 10 despite being a great song. Not enough crescendo or drama in it. It actually sounds like it could be a track off of Dummy. That's one of my favorite albums of all time, so that's no bad thing, but its certainly not dynamic enough to encompass a Bond film.

You people disappoint me.

Right. It's just that people are acting like they're hearing it for the first time. There was a big promotional campaign for the single ahead of its drop date, nearly a month ago. How...?? Why...?!

What I'm saying is, how come whenever I think, "Oh that'll be covered on Fark within 24 hours," I'm usually wrong?

Looked for silhouettes of women with pointy nipples, was disappointed.

Yep, I was going to say Chris Connell's tune was the best-written of the bunch. It didn't sound like it was put together from bits and pieces of whatever was popular at the moment.

Best preformance? Shirley Bassey. Man, that woman has some pipes.

Heh. Burt Bacharach and Herb Alpert. That's the very definition of "classic."
 
2012-10-26 09:29:39 AM  
Great song, great performance.
 
2012-10-26 09:31:05 AM  
I'm glad they picked Liam Neeson to be Bond. Totally awesome!

I love Bond themes and have them all, I'd put that in my top five.

Is it just me or does her voice sound muffled, like she's got a mouth full of cotton balls?
 
2012-10-26 09:40:22 AM  
Man with the Golden Gun.
Album version of Living Daylights Link The producers thought this was too hardcore for the film.
Diamonds are Forever.
Live and Let Die.
Goldeneye. (Thunderball inspired).
