Critiquing Bond

Just heard the new Bond theme "Skyfall." I love Adele, but although she might have been the right singer for a different song, she was neither the right singer nor writer for this one - it's dreck. I'm glad they decided to forgo urban and move back to a ballad, but this one is slow, boring, and unimaginative, right up there with "Moonraker" or "All Time High." Sorry Adele, but I think my favorite is still a tie between "Goldeneye" and "You Know My Name."

Totally agree with "You Know My Name." I knew that Casino Royale was not gonna be an ordinary Bond movie when that song rolled at the start.

I wasn't thrilled with You Know My Name.

Now Nobody Does it Better and Goldfinger. Those are Bond themes. Though I do have to say I love A View to a Kill even if I didn't really like the movie.

I like "NDIB" and "Goldfinger," but I've never been crazy about "AVtaK" - it sounds too dated, without having what I consider to be appropriate Bond-movie-ness (like "Goldfinger" or "The Man With The Golden Gun" have).

As I was saying on Facebook, the one good thing about the series, and the fact that it's gone through so many changes and cultural shifts, is that there's something for everyone. :)
