So it's August, we have a new show coming this Saturday! Anything Goes is the theme, so... anything can be done by any dancer! One particular dancer picked a James Bond theme song. She loves it, she just had to dance to it!

Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...
(from Wikipedia)
"Skyfall" is the theme song of the 2012 James Bond film of the same name, performed by English recording artist Adele. It was written by Adele and producer Paul Epworth and features orchestration by J. A. C. Redford. Film company Eon Productions invited the singer to work on the theme song in early 2011, a task that Adele accepted after reading the film's script. While composing the song, Adele and Epworth aimed to capture the mood and style of the other Bond themes, including dark and moody lyrics descriptive of the film's plot.

"Skyfall" was released at 0:07 BST on 5 October 2012 as part of the Global James Bond Day, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No, the first James Bond film. The song quickly went to the top of the iTunes chart, and reached number two at the UK Singles Chart and eight on the Billboard Hot 100. Reviews were positive, with the song being compared to Shirley Bassey's Bond themes, and "Skyfall" became the first Bond theme to win at the Golden Globes, the Brit Awards and the Academy Awards. During the 85th Academy Awards, Adele gave her first live performance of the song.

Adele's theme song is the first to carry the same name as the Bond movie since Madonna's "Die Another Day" in 2002.

Daniel Craig admitted to Yahoo that he found himself coming over a bit emotional when the song was first played to him: "I cried," the James Bond star said. "From the opening bars I knew immediately, then the voice kicked in and it was exactly what I'd wanted from the beginning. It just got better and better because it fitted the movie. In fact the more of the movie we made, the more it fitted it."
