Friday Jukebox, James Bond Edition
This is the new James Bond song, “Skyfall,” by Adele, just released to the public today at 0:07, London time:
Some of my favorite other James Bond theme music follows the jump:
“A View To A Kill”:
“Nobody Does It Better” (from The Spy Who Loved Me):
“The World Is Not Enough”:
The most fun music in the Bond movies, of course, can only be John Barry’s iconic “007 Theme,” which timelessly embodies the suspenseful, fun, sexy, jazzy, and in-your-face ethos of the character:
So here’s the Brian Setzer Orchestra doing that same fine piece of music, at a Christmas show, because, hey, why not?
I’m not including “Live and Let Die” because frankly, I find it more than a bit tedious. It’s far from Sir Paul’s best work either with or without Lennon, and it’s not the best contribution to the Bond film franchise. Sorry if you like it, but that’s my opinion. Got an issue with that? Think I should have found some other ones instead? That’s what comments are for!
