Gordon in the morning: Rolling closing credits in the deep

Gordon pulls together a bunch of creepy-stalkery details on Adele's movements that he thinks links her to the next Bond movie:

She first hinted that she’d been offered the 007 spot in a chat with Jonathan Ross last year.

Soon after that Adele started preliminary sessions with producer Paul Epworth.

Her visit to the historic Abbey Road facilities suggests she’s been recording with Thomas Newman, the man director Sam Mendes has hired to take charge of the Bond music.
"Also, I found a dog-eared copy of the novelisation of Moonraker lying on her bedside cabinet, and I collected some hair from her hairbrush which I used to make a locket which... uh... no, forget the hair bit."

But hang on a moment, is Smart really piecing this together?
BOND bosses are being more secretive than MI6 over who will sing over the closing credits of the latest 007 flick Skyfall.
The appearance of the word "closing" there is curious - wouldn't the normal assumption be that you'd be hiding in the bins watching Adele record the opening theme? Unless, of course, you weren't really using deductive skills and were just trying to disguise some sort of leak.

Does anyone still care about the bond music? I struggle to remember any of them since the Timothy Dalton era. The only standout one, Goldeneye was just a pastiche of what a Bond song 'should' sound like..

It's a bit like the Christmas Number One, or the League Cup - everyone still writes about it, but nobody outside the participants cares much about the result
