Combining multi-award winning Adele and James Bond seems like the perfect recipe for a #1 hit, so why did her Skyfall theme song fail to chart? Could it be that Adele’s time in the spotlight is waning or are James Bond themes just cursed? Via The Guardian:
There were high hopes for Adele’s theme song to the new James Bond film, Skyfall – not least the expectation that this would be the first 007 signature track to top the UK charts. It’s not as if a number one chart position has been a problem for the multi-award winning Adele, after all.
Yet it seems the singer may have been struck down by what many regard as a Bond-related curse. Skyfall only reached number two in this week’s charts, and was held off top spot by Swedish House Mafia, of all people.
