Have you watched Skyfall, the latest James Bond movie? It’s awesome!
Regardless, have you heard “Skyfall” by Adele, the theme song of – jang jang jang! – Skyfall?
If you have or when you do, you’ll realise that “Skyfall” is, like, the ULTIMATE National Day song ever!
- A world in crisis: “This is the end”; “When worlds collide and days are dark” – check.
- Propagating communitarian values: “Let the sky fall, when it crumbles/We will stand tall/Face it all together” – check.
- The watchful eye of Big Brother: “Where you go I go,/What you see I see” – check.
- The strangely nurturing yet protective might of defence forces: “I know I’ll never be me, without the security/Of your loving arms/Keeping me from harm/Put your hand in my hand/And we’ll stand” – check.
BONUS: A not-so-subtle reference to ‘ponding’ in “I’ve drowned”.
Guess we know who to hire next year to write the National Day 2013 theme song!
P.S. Just discovered a really awesome mash-up: Adele’s “Skyfall” and Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”.
