Skyfall sung by the Russian Army Choir in St. Petersburg. The seven man group delivered their rendition of Adele’s Oscar-winning theme tune from the 2012 film Skyfall, on a breakfast television show on the city’s Channel 5.
Founded in 1928, Russia’s military choir is better known for military classics like Katjusha, which tells the tale of a military wife yearning for her husband at the front.
But the choir also has a proud tradition of stirring cover versions of popular songs. In the past they have covered Sweet Home Alabama and reworked Men at Work’s Land Down Under as a Russian folk song.
