The much anticipated Spectre hits theaters November 6 in the States. And while Bond himself, Daniel Craig, seems ready to hang up his Walther PPK, audiences still can't get enough of these films. From a series that is stuffed with cinematic iconography, from nude silhouettes to tongue-in-cheek one-liners, the Bond theme songs are as instantly recognizable as names like "Pussy Galore." From Dame Shirley Bassey to Louis Armstrong, Garbage to Adele, Bond's got hits. Can't say that Sam Smith's new theme really does it; it seems to be too far out of the Bond mold and much more "really sad love song" that Smith does so well. Don't get me wrong, it's a fine tune, it's just not Bond. Let's break 'em down, and you tell us if you agree (number 1 is not up for discussion, just so we're clear.)
Adele’s latest single is shattering all kinds of records. If you’ve turned on the radio in the past week you probably have a good idea of the song I’m talking about. It’s called “Hello,” and it is the first single from her highly anticipated upcoming album, 25, and the first new track we’ve heard from the singer since her James Bond theme song, “Skyfall,” was released in 2012.
Hotline Bling Music Video
Last week, Drake dropped the music video for his wildly popular tune, “Hotline Bling,” which currently sits in second place on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. And to be blunt, the video, well, more specifically Drake’s dancing in the video is absolutely ridiculous. It seems as if the Toronto native was influenced by Carlton’s dance routines from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and/or by 99% of dads out there. Either way, the video has sparked some hilarious memes and vines which you really need to check out. In the end, Drake (well, most likely his management) knew what they were doing and wanted to create a music video that would get everyone talking. They succeeded.
It's been a while since we've heard from the "Someone Like You" singer Adele. She took a break from music after she got pregnant and had a baby boy named Angelo. But recently, there have been rumors that Adele will be next in line for a Las Vegas residency.
If the deal goes through, it could be a two-year stint in Vegas for Adele, who would join the likes of Elton John, Celine Dion, and, most recently, Britney Spears. Back in January 2013, Adele confirmed she was working on a third album, so it's certainly possible.
Of course, these rumors have come courtesy of an anonymous source, so it's unclear if Adele really will spend time in Las Vegas — for a residency or otherwise.
Would you see Adele in Vegas?
After winning six awards at the Grammys on February 12, you might expect that Adele tickets sales would tick up. Or at least they would if she actually had an upcoming tour. But although she doesn't have a tour that's been announced yet, that didn't stop more than a 1000 people from wanting to find out when she would next have tickets on sale. That was the effect of Adele's good night at the Grammys: an 87% increase in the number of performer alert sign-ups on TicketNetwork.com* during and the week after the ceremony compared to the week leading up to it.
