Listen: Adele's Haunting "Skyfall" Is One of the Best Bond Songs in Years

Oct 04, 2012

Now officially online, you can listen to Adele's "Skyfall" in all its moody glory below ...

With arguably the best voice in the music business right now, Adele just crushes this. Sure, the orchestra helps and we love the nod to that iconic 007 theme, but this sucker is all Adele and completely old-school Bond. It doesn't try to do anything new or snazzy or hip -- it simply relies on Adele's voice to carry the haunting lyrics to another level.

And speaking of those lyrics, here they are ...

 

This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again
 
For this is the end
I've drowned and dreamed this moment
So overdue, I owe them
Swept away, I'm stolen
 
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Or face it all together
 
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Or face it all together
At skyfall
 
Skyfall is where we start
A thousand miles and poles apart
When worlds collide, and days are dark
You may have my number, you can take my name
But you'll never have my heart
 
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Or face it all together
 
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Or face it all together
At skyfall
 
Where you go I go
What you see I see
I know i'll never be without the security
Are your loving arms
Keeping me from harm
Put your hand in my hand
And we'll stand
 
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Or face it all together
 
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Or face it all together
At skyfall
 
Let the sky fall
We will stand tall
At skyfall
 
Skyfall hits theaters in the U.K. on October 26, and on November 9 in the U.S. However, the film will debut on IMAX screens one day before on November 8. You can purchase "Skyfall" on iTunes beginning tomorrow.  [via The Film Stage]
