You may have heard this song already: Skyfall, the title song for the new James Bond film featuring Daniel Craig as 007.

The song is performed by Adele. It was written by Adele and Paul Epworth. There is no official music video out for it as far as I know, but here is a lyrics video from Youtube with the audio:

What do you guys think of it? It kind of recalls the older style of James Bond themes, and I think Adele is a good fit being a current, and very talented, diva. At the same time, I do feel as though this song lacks the grandeur of songs like Bassey's Goldfinger and Diamonds Are Forever, and Gladys Knight's License To Kill. Still, I like it quite a bit better than more recent Bond songs.

It's pretty good for Adele.

Strike three. The Daniel Craig Bond films just can't get a good theme song.
