The last few James Bond movies have delivered unconventional theme songs, when you consider the history of slinky songs like "Goldfinger" and "Diamonds Are Forever." Shirley Bassey's sultry voice is probably the one most closely associated with a "classic" Bond Theme. However, more the recent techno-pop "Die Another Day," Chris Cornell's rocker anthem "You Know My Name," and finally, Jack White and Alicia Keys' "Another Way to Day" were all entertaining, and they helped bring the classic character into the modern consciousness without stripping him of his old fashioned charm. But the announcement of Adele's involvement in the newest Bond movie's title theme is a delicious notion, because her signature sound is sure to deliver us back to the past era of sexy, sultry female voices bringing us into the action.
