Part of the joy in learning that another Bond film is being made is guessing which musician will sing the theme. After months of speculation, it's finally been confirmed: Briton Adele will write and sing the opening song for Sam Mendes's Skyfall.
It was rumoured that Mendes originally wanted Amy Winehouse to sing the song. After Winehouse's death in July of 2011, the director quickly shifted his gaze to Adele. It was a sensible choice. Adele has been the unrivaled heir to pop music's soul queen thrown. She joins an elite group of musicians including Madonna and Paul McCartney who have lent their talents to the Bond franchise.
Skyfall sees Daniel Craig return as Agent 007, jacked and reloaded. The film also stars Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench, and Javier Bardem in a look that can only be described as a cross between a muppet and a pedophile.
For a while, when the Bond movies really sucked, the only thing the audience could count on being good was the theme song, but Adele and Skyfall seems like a match made in heaven.
