My Week with Adele Day 5 - Skyfall

So for my song choice number 5 I have chosen 'Skyfall'.

'Skyfall' is the James Bond single that Adele was invited to record. It was released as a single in 2012. The film came out the same year.

As ever, with Bond themes, the singer and the song itself are kept under wraps so noone knows until its released. This particular Bond theme is very Adele - soulful, powerful, and full of mood and atmosphere.

Skyfall is described as orchestral pop - who knew there was such a thing! Adele co-wrote the song with Paul Epworth, who worked with her on her album 21.

Although Skyfall is quite reminiscent of some of the great Bond themes from the likes of Shirley Bassey, its also clearly identifiable as Adele. As such, it was worthy of the accolades it won - an Academy Award being one of them. Wow. Oh, and it also reached number 2 in the UK Singles chart.

All in all, this is a great Bond theme, but its also a great Adele song. So there we have my Day 5 choice. Let me know what you think.
