Skyfall

I ain't gonna lie.  I am totally digging this Adele song from the new James Bond movie.  I'm too stuck on my dick rock to really have given Adele a chance, but wow...


The things I like about this song:

-- The classic instrumentation.  It's basically orchestral.

--Adele's vocal range.  I've heard her described as a "soul" singer, and I haven't heard enough of her stuff to disagree, but what I hear is a little bit of Patsy Cline, that same mournful/hopeful quality, the ability to go from smaller low notes to bigger high ones.  Have to say, I'm pretty amazed.

--The way it rhymes "Skyfall" with "Crumbles."

Let this be a lesson, kids.  Dick rock is all good and great, but it doesn't hurt to expand your horizons.
