The Grammy Awards are up next. Who’s your favorite this time? I’m rooting for Gotye and The Black Keys (they’re nominated for Record of the Year). But so many amazing artists are being nominated as well! Paul McCartney’s for his Kisses on the Bottom album! Even Alabama Shakes for the great Hold On we talked about.
But Adele is nominated as well, for a Best Pop Solo Performance (for Set Fire to the Rain at the Royal Albert Hall – you can watch the performance right after the jump!)
But before we got that amazing performance – Adele is always incredible in her live performances – I have to talk about how much I loved her Skyfall theme song! I said something a couple of days ago about listening to that song almost every day since it came out…
It’s such a strong piece, without even getting into the details of Adele’s beautiful, powerful voice! When the movie started, we were in this over packed theater for the premiere – I had no idea how the song would be, I hadn’t listened to the previously released track – but it started and there was this particular depth to it… This honesty I hadn’t felt coming from other James Bond theme songs.
But maybe that’s also because Adele herself feels so honest and giving in her songs. But did you watch Skyfall? How did you feel about it and about Adele’s song matching the movie’s plot? I think it was a great fit – Bond himself was coming back to his roots. Adele’s soulful music approach is a great companion for this human approach of the legendary 007.
