Adele Confirmed to Compose and Sing the Theme Song for 'Skyfall'
Everyone wanted it,the rumors have been circling for months, and now it's finally happening. According to Showbiz 411, chart-topping British singer Adele will compose and belt out the theme song for Sam Mendes' James Bond film Skyfall. If you haven't heard of Adele, you're either deaf or incredibly good at avoiding the radio or any music spewing device. She's made it big with songs like Rolling in the Deep, the wholly depressing Someone Like You and Set Fire to the Rain, each of which has been played to death on radio stations across the world. Thankfully, she's just good enough that many haven't gotten sick of her music.
Here's a taste of Adele's signature talents from her single Set Fire to the Rain:
Adele joins previous names like Madonna, Duran Duran, Paul McCartney, Tina Turner and Chris Cornell and Jack White with Alicia Keys for the two Daniel Craig installments. Adele has been wanted for the job ever since Amy Winehouse passed away (she was once rumored to craft her own James Bond title song as well). The singer has a sultry voice and great talent to make a great Bond title song. As of now, the song itself has been titled Skyfall, which isn't surprising on one level, but remember that the songs for Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale were not the titles of their respective theme songs. Stay tuned for updates.

Sure beats Madonna. And that Jack White/Alicia Keys trainwreck.

Trainwreck? I think not. Lots of people liked it.

Fitting, seeing as how they both make women cry.

I really like this choice but it depresses me that Muse is destined to NEVER record a Bond song. They seem like a perfect fit!

How is Someone Like You depressing? It's gorgeous and uplifting. I find Ethan Anderton's reporting depressing. Flush him.

Her shit is depressing. And now im depressed cause I really think shes overrated. Not a fan but I guess we will have to wait and hear the results before totally condemning her 😉

So is this hinting that James Bond leaves her for another woman?...Since thats what all Adeles songs are about.

I hope the Skyfall theme sounds more like the rejected QoS song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zg2dXY9TOKA - than the Jack White track they went with.

Fingers in ears while this plays I think.

So the themesong will be an overrated cow complaining that James broke her heart?
