Just finished watching the newest James Bond film, Skyfall. I enjoyed the movie, but the most impressive element to me was the theme song. Those intro credits and music to 007 films are epic; packaging dark espionage in more sleek, artsy way. Paul Epworth and Adele absolutely nailed this song, and it’s no surprise that it won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
I will do a whole other post on Paul Epworth in the future, whose production credits include Bloc Party’s Silent Alarm, and Adele’s 21 among so many others.
