Word that Adele would be singing the theme song for Skyfall, the latest James Bond movie, hit late last night/this morning, and was of limited importance to me as I’m not a 15-year-old girl or a 30-year-old mopey cat lady, but now there’s an audio clip online and you can listen for yourself. I’d think a swingin’ hepcat like Javier Barfly up there would want a more upbeat number, but at least there aren’t any overt references to Bond drinking Heineken now. Instead it’s a sad ditty about the sky falling. Do you think they let the people know what the movie is about or do they just have to write a song based on word association?

Suffice to say, minor-key British warbling isn’t really my cup of tea, but if you’re into it, go ahead and rock out with your wiener out, man. Tell your boss I said it was cool.

Love like you’ve never been hurt before, dance with your wiener out, etc. Skyfall opens November 9th in the US, October 23rd in the UK.
