The song has 3,822,808 views on YT. Not sure why it's not on her VEVO, maybe the music video will be.
Update: #1 in 47 countries!
You can follow how "Skyfall" is doing world wide here.

It's everything a Bond song should sound like; classy with amazing vocals and orchestra. Makes me forget about the abomination Another Way To Die.

I saw an interview with Jack White the other day, and he was talking about how he got to make the theme song...apparently, the producers were in a bit of a hurry, so he was free to do whatever he wanted as there was no time for them to change it completely if they didn't like it :wink: 'Another Way to Die' is by no means a bad song, but it just didn't sound right as a Bond song.

Haha. Which makes sense. I think they really dropped the ball when they put two singers with completely different voice ranges to sing the chorus. It just didn't flow correctly. Granted the song is okay, but as you said, its just not a Bond theme. Skyfall screams Bond theme song in your face.

Just got around to listening to it.

Sorry....both the song and the singer do zero for me. :oops: It sounds old-fashioned and has borrowed heavily from the 60s and 70s. I know it's 50 years Bond, but I was hoping for something a little more imaginative. They might as well have wheeled out Shirley Bassey again, this is what it sounds like to me. It has the feeling of a boring dirge. Sorry. :oops: :oops: :oops:

I was not so convinced about the first small snippets...but the complete song is fantastic. A great Bond-song.

@JEC - this is what I like about it -. as opposed to his first two songs, this sounds absolutely Bond!
