At least that's the way she'll remember it
The full version of the Skyfall theme is being released for sale tonight. I was hoping for more, but still its better than a lot of the recent themes.
I am such a Bond fanboy, that I'm actually a bit excited to see Skyfall. I am interested in the plotline suggesting that Daniel Craig's (age 42) Bond is "too old" for his current line of work. Connery did "Never Say Never" at 53. The actor I would most have enjoyed seeing play Bond, Liam Neeson, is still kicking mass and "Taken" names at 60.
already signed him up for 2 more Bond films after Skyfall.

Never really wanted to see Liam as Bond, Clive would have been the good safe pick but he turned it down and I think it worked out very well for Bond. Craig seems to have passed Dalton and Brosnan and some plaes even say he is better than Moore. Of course some of that has to do with him being the current Bond, but I think he'll be looked on as a very good Bond and a great selection.
-Jason "I doubt he'd do it, but I think Fassbender (currently 35) could be an amazing Bond in a half a decade or so when Daniel Craig (44) is done" Evans
Upon first listen, I like it. I can see getting tired of it after constant radio play -- it is a bit repetitive. But it's not a bad song at all.
And about time. It's been 27 years, 9 Bond films, and 3 Bond actors since a UK act recorded a Bond theme. (Garbage is an American band with a Scottish vocalist.)
I always thought I would have made a great Bond, but, sadly, now I am too old. Oh, what might have been.
I thought Jason Isaacs would have made a great Bond back in the day.
LET'S GO DUKE!
If they want to go young in a half decade or so, Alex Pettyfer (currently 21) could be a decent choice. Even a straight male can admit he looks quite nice. Nicholas Hoult (22), who was the young Beast in X-Men: First Class, could be a decent choice too. I would suggest Henry Caville (28), but I dunno if someone can go from Superman to Bond. I mentioned a former Potter actor and the one I think could maybe be a Bond someday is Tom Felton (24), though I want to see him do something other than slimy and low after his work in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
And, if they really want to make a splash, there's someone who is a big star who is British who is currently 25 and who has shown he can carry a franchise...
-Jason "I am enjoying it, but this is silly as it is at least 5-6 years away... at least" Evans
Funny how many HP folks made the list... Isaacs, Pattinson, Felton.
LET'S GO DUKE!
I wasn't disappointed in the Adele theme for Skyfall, only because Bond themes usually stink. I'm not sure if there's a certain sound they're looking for or what, but several artists who have done the themes seem to go away from their usual sound in doing the Bond theme. Fortunately, the theme will be out of the way early in the movie, and we can get on with seeing what Sam Mendes has in store for Bond and M.
Btw, great discussion on possible future Bonds...but who in the world is going to be able to fill Judi Densch's shoes as M? She is amazing in the role...especially teamed up with Craig.
Brian Zoubek on what was going through his mind walking to the free throw line with 3.6 seconds remaining in the 2010 National Championship game and Duke up by 1: "Fifty percent [of me is] thinking, This is what I've been dreaming of doing my entire life. Fifty percent I'm crapping my pants."
Jason Statham would make a good Bond.
