Home Uncategorized Adele “Skyfall” –Number 1–Will Not Be on Soundtrack Album

Adele’s theme song from “Skyfall” was released on iTunes on Thursday night. It hit number 4 over night, went to number 2, and was number 1 by Friday morning. It reached number 1 maybe faster than any other single, and has stayed at number 1 ever since.

Sony insiders were worried that Taylor Swift’s tween audience would push Adele out–Swift has “Red” at number 2 and “You’re So Vain–Version 49” at number 4. But Adele, with her magnificent vocals and the great arrangement–has held fast at number 1.

Get this: the “Skyfall” song will not be on Thomas Newman’s score album, coming on Sony. That was the deal Adele made. “Skyfall” will just be a single, and one day appear on her greatest hits. But it won’t be included with other James Bond merchandising. So the single is the only way to get it. And that’s why it will be number 1 for a long, long time.
