I admit, I totally figured Paul F. Tompkins would be about as good a singer as Adele is a stand-up comedian. But I actually think I like his version of “Skyfall” better than hers, mainly because it doesn’t have the annoying back-up vocals on the last chorus.
Dude hits every note, seriously. It’s funny because it’s him and he’s wearing a suit like an ice cream salesman at the beach, but otherwise, a faithful, reverent and emotional take. If it were the actual Bond theme it would still rank above “Licence to Kill” and “Moonraker.”
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
