Adele - Skyfall
One of the best things about a new Bond flick (and there are many) is the new theme song. They are all similar in that they are grand, cinematic pieces full of dramatic orchestration, with a similar tempos and a rising, almost triumphant chorus. All Bond songs follow this formula, yet they still manage to remain firmly planted in the zeitgeist in which they were spawned. Adele's foray into this iconic song form doesn't stray far from the formula at all, and will most likely be part of the soundtrack to our lives for the foreseeable future. You put a suit on while playing a Bond song and you'll understand why.
