'Skyfall' soundtrack breaks Bond records

25-Nov-2012 • Skyfall

The OST for 007's 23rd and latest adventure, "Skyfall" by Thomas Newman, is breaking some Bond related records.

Last week "Skyfall" made the 100th place on the Billboard 200 chart, Billboard itself reports.

This, the report suggests, is the best-performing Bond soundtrack since 1985 and "A View To A Kill", a John Glen classic and headlined by the ever-popular Duran Duran.

"Skyfall"'s headline theme, sung and co-coposed by Brit Pop sensation, Adele, hit #33 on the Billboard charts, but this is not on the OST album, but is available as a single and download.
