Adele's much-awaited James Bond theme tune Skyfall is premiering today. It's a perfect fit for the UK's all-conquering artist Adele to be involved in a James Bond film. The latter is a Great British institution and the former is fast becoming one!
October 5th marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No, the first Bond film. Adele's Skyfall track will be released at 0.07 on Friday - good timing!
I've always been a fan of James Bond. In fact, if you look closely you can spot yours truly making a cameo appearance in Daniel Craig's first Bond film, Casino Royale. Can anyone remember which scene it is in?
Do you think Adele's song lives up to expectations? I have no doubt she will have another huge hit on her hands. Looking forward to seeing the film when it is released later this month too.
