Great minds think alike, or what?! The “Skyfall” song is out, and Adele is the singer. What else can I say? Two favorites, Adele and Bond together… Be one of the first to hear it, here. I must be such a huge Bond fan that I got this link hours ago, when only a few had actually listened to the song… Heeheehee. :) It’s very retro, 1960’s-ish sounding. And all advance leaks suggest a really good movie for the franchise’s 50th year. Can’t wait. In theaters Oct 31, 2012.

    The first thing that popped into my head was “It’s like “Goldfinger” brought forward to the 21st century <3"
    (I do wonder if they’ll bring back those silhouetted ladies doing what looked like naked gymnastics, bwa-ha-ha! And for the record, the ancients really did gymnastics in the buff)

    007 and Adele … that makes two of us, MM!

    So I remembered just a moment ago to search for Adele’s Skyfall theme song on youtube. Then I realized I haven’t visited MarketManila for a while now (in my mind, Skyfall=Bond=MarketMan!) — sure enough, first post I see is this :) Not sure why, but reminds me more of “Diamonds Are Forever”…

    What better song to celebrate James Bond 007’s 50th Anniversary! I was only 6 years old when he first came on the silver screen! WOW! Thanks MM! Now, I can drink the martini, shaken, not stirred!

    We all love the james bond movies, and who doesn’t? I’m pretty sure most of us daydream of becoming a spy (i do)… it’s so cool… yeah, the song is so retro and i like it, but you know MM, of all the James bond movie theme songs, the one that i like the most is the song “For your eyes only”… can’t wait to see the movie!!!!

    MM, NPR ran a series of features on Bond last week, http://www.npr.org/series/162180446/james-bond-at-50 . Can you tell whether a martini is shaken, not stirred? :)

  24. Marketman says:

    ykmd, I like mine shaken, definitely. See my post on it, here. Heeheehee. :) And yes, I absolutely agree Sean Connery ranks first, Daniel Craig second.

  25. ykmd says:

    I should have known to check the archives first :) I also enjoyed the feature where they interviewed a physicist about Bond’s gadgets, like the invisible car, etc.
