Everyone is hyped abt Skyfall.
Well, if you had never heard abt Skyfall, you are definitely living under a rock. Err....better ask that snail beside you, it might heard abt the movie...
Anyway, I want to talk abt Skyfall, the theme song by Adele.
It reminds me of the old but still memorable Shirley Bassey's Diamonds are Forever song, which is for me the best ever James Bond theme song.
Loves Adele's voice in the song....so emotional and well, husky. Invokes the memory of past Bond's ladies...beautiful but lethal ladies.
Anyway, do try to hear the song, I am sure that you will be mesmerized by it too.
The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
- William Blake,
excerp from Auguries of Innocence.
