Beatles, Bond, Adele

A 50th anniversary is a milestone.  Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first single, “Love Me Do.”   It was also the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No, the first film in the James Bond series.  The first cinematic Beatles/Bond “crossover” came in the form of this quote from the movie Goldfinger:

My dear girl, there are some things that just aren’t done, such as drinking Dom Perignon ’53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs! – James Bond (Sean Connery)

Bond’s opinion of the Fab Four may or may not have changed in subsequent films, but that didn’t stop Sir Paul McCartney from recording the theme to Live and Let Die some years later.  007’s tastes have always leaned more toward martinis (shaken, not stirred) than beer, and I think he would approve of the theme song to his latest film.

Adele – “Skyfall”


Author: Chuck

I started out as a child, then things kind of grew from there.  I spend way too much time around computers and radios, but I do like to take a break once in a while.  I'm not a real doctor, but I played one on the radio in college. A bit later on, I wrote an article that was published in COMPUTE!'s Gazette (Commodore 64/128 magazine). I also think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.
