Adam Lambert Records with a Full Orchestra For Upcoming Album

With Adam Lambert talking excitedly in interviews and on twitter about working with producers like RedOne, Max Martin and Dr. Luke, it would be easy to assume his upcoming CD would be filled with electronic dance music.

No doubt, there will be plenty of tunes perfect for clubbing, but it looks like Adam’s got a few surprises in store for his fans.   Last night, he twittered:,

The Stereo Hideout Orchestra at Kin...
The Stereo Hideout Orchestra at Kings Theatre 5/19

@adamlambert: At Capitol studios observing full string orchestra recording for one of my songs!! It’s amazing!!!!!

Strings for a ballad, maybe?   These little teasers kept fans endlessly speculating.   So far, there’s been plenty of talk, but no music.

Last weekend, Adam shot the video for “Time for Miracles” from the 2012 soundtrack.   Screenings of the blockbuster movie, set to be released in November, have begun, and so far, the critics who’ve seen the movie haven’t much to say on the song.

A writer/columnist who attended a 2012 screening in Jackson Hole, Wyoming last night, peppered with twitters from fans looking for deets would only say the song was, “Beautiful and hopeful, very fitting, ” but then couldn’t elaborate, “Can’t. Phone were confiscated at door. Also, I’m an ethical guy. I cannot do that.” Boo!

Maybe something will break on the Adam Lambert single front next week. In the meantime, on Tuesday, Adam, Paula Abdul and Snoop Dogg will announce the American Music Award nominations at the Beverly Wilshire hotel in Los Angeles.

Adam’s debut album will be available everywhere on November 24.

  1. My heart was bursting with joy when Adam made that tweet last night.

    Mine, too! I simply can’t wait!

  3. Mine too…

    His dreams are coming true and I’m glad I’ve been a part of watching it happen.

  4. Love the cropped version of the pic MJ used at the top of the thread! And, yes, very very excited about the orchestra usage – definitely makes me think of a big soaring ballad.

  5. capitolstudios @adamlambert Our pleasure having you Adam. Sounds amazing.

    Awwwwwwwwww…nice.

  6. His dreams are coming true and I’m glad I’ve been a part of watching it happen.

    THIS. I’m so happy for our Adam!

  7. Thank you, MJ, for using the new gorgeous pic with the awesome jacket (dunking so that suebrody does not throw things at me!)

  8. Thank you, MJ, for using the new gorgeous pic with the awesome jacket (dunking so that suebrody does not throw things at me!)

    I was in a lurking mood the day everyone was debating the new jacket, so I didn’t weigh in then. I’m with you, though, I LOVE it! I think he looks so cool, cutting edge, and superstar-like in that pic!

  9. I am so glad for Adam and for Me (and all my fellow Adam fans) Eclectic is what I really want from Adam’s album and it seem more and more likely that is what we will get… Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  10. I think I’ve figured it out. They’re dipping into the promos budget for the album. Donations anyone?

  11. BestAI,

    I officially donate my person and time for joint appearances with Adam to promo his album.

    OR..he’s getting so much free publicity that’s it’s released more funds for recording!!!!

    LOL…I think you are on to something… :-)

  14. @adamlambert: At Capitol studios observing full string orchestra recording for one of my songs!! It’s amazing!!!!!

    So excited about this. I’m glad that it’s not going to be just electronic dance pop. That’s fun too, but this sounds beautiful.

  15. I officially donate my person and time for joint appearances with Adam to promo his album.

    LOL! Yes, I might be willing to make some time for that as well ;-)

    Heck, I’ll buy his coffee, iron his clothes, wash his underwear…ok, backing down now…deep breaths…must. keep. waiting. patiently…

  16. I remember wayyyy back when that Adam said “… and I will surprise you” …. he’s a man of his word.

  17. I STILL HATE THAT JACKET. Yes, I am very shallow that way. However…no Elvis hair. WOOT! And no facial hair. DOUBLE WOOT!

    I am soooo happy for:

    1) Adam

    2) His fans

    3) Paula Abdul, who is clearly in lurrrve with him. Oh, yeah, and for Lyndsey Parker, too. And maybe Aimee Mayo.

    Hrmm, did I forget anyone? Oh, yeah. 19/RCA. Them. Well, as long as they give him the promotion he deserves, release the best cuts in a timely fashion (not like they have done with COOK), and the stay the f**k out of the way, I’m good.

    No leakage re: TFM, tho. Odd (and disappointing). Well, we have the AMAs announcements to look forward to. :)

    Of coures, I’m dying whilst waiting…but I’m good.

  18. I remember wayyyy back when that Adam said ” ¦ and I will surprise you’  ‘ ¦. he’s a man of his word.

    He sure did surprise Simon, didn’t he? At least Simon admitted that Paula was the one who nailed it from the very beginning. “He’s the best we’ve seen in every city.”

  19. Hrmm, did I forget anyone?

    Thank you, MJ, for using the new gorgeous pic with the awesome jacket (dunking so that suebrody does not throw things at me!)

    Love Adam’s retro-mod look. Dated a handsome hunk a few decades ago who looked a lot like him – same hair and wore a jacket almost like this. Sunglasses were different – small, round and blue-tinted – popular in their day.

  21. Hrmm, did I forget anyone?

    We haven’t heard from her in awhile, but there was that chick from “Best Week Ever” — Michelle something? She did that epic, casual couch interview with Adam during the season.

  22. Hrmm, did I forget anyone?

    And we can’t forget Brian May and Meatloaf!

  23. A full string orchestra! Yes, it must be a beautiful ballad, yay!

    The anticipation and excitement I have for his album is to the boiling point, I cannot imagine how happy and excited his family have to be for him. I hope all his dreams are fulfilled.

  24. I’ve changed a few words in my Grandma’s old saying.

    Patience is a virtue
    Practice it if you can
    Seldom found in normal folks
    But never found in fans

    Kinda fits we Adam fans doesn’t it?

    On the orchestra, it doesn’t necessarily mean a ballad. Not comparing music styles, but a lot of artists have used orchestras before. The Who, The Moody Blues, Yes, ELP, Elton John, Muse, ELO and probably a lot more.

    Something Elton-ish would be awesome.

  25. Hrmm, did I forget anyone?

    Laura Saltman, my favorite interviewer of Adam.

    Nancy O’Dell, Kelly Ripa, Lara Spencer

  26. Muse, people. Think Muse. I cant totally see him singing something Muse-like, since they are one of his favorite bands. Of course, the other bands that are listed above are amazing, too–ELO. Wow. I haven’t heard ELO for a long time. Styx might have used orchestration, too. Elton John–thud thud goes my heart.

    I wanna hear some music!!! :(

    ETA: I would be a fine Adam interviewer. ;)

  27. That jacket is hot! To bad he can’t recycle anymore ;p

    I have a funny feeling he’ll continue to do so. He just seems to have picked a few favorites that he likes to wear over and over. Of course, if Kara was correct in that backstage chat with Adam at the YHA, he’ll have designers clammoring for him to wear their stuff, so maybe he’ll just have so many options from which to choose that we’ll begin seeing repeats less and less.

  28. I think I’ve figured it out. They’re dipping into the promos budget for the album. Donations anyone?

    LOL!! I just think we’re being impatient. They’re not skimping, it’s just not time. Timing is everything and I think his peeps are doing a BRILLIANT job piquing interest, building anticipation and preparing us for the exciting climax to follow. Yes, I’m dying to skip ahead a hundred pages to see what happens, but once we have our pay off, I think we’ll look back on this time and be a little wistful.

  29. Wow that’s awesome! I really can’t wait for this album now! =)

  30. What time is the AMA announcements? Are they interrupting any TV shows to do that? I need to tivo it. I’m guessing it is on ABC.

    Prediction: doing AMA announcements as a B-lister. After singles release, emerge as A-lister.

  31. Yes, I’m dying to skip ahead a hundred pages to see what happens, but once we have our pay off, I think we’ll look back on this time and be a little wistful.

    I love this and totally agree. Of course, if his album is a success, there will be more to follow. Adam being Adam, who likes to surprise and constantly change things up, I think his fans will be eagerly anticipating everything he does, always wondering “what’s next?” like during the Idol season.

  32. Okay, I asked this on the headline thread, but how does a tour work with a song done by an entire orchestra? I’m completely serious about this question. Anyone? How do they substitute for this? I’m really looking forward to hearing this song.

  33. Speaking of clothes/accessories, the folks at IDF are running a poll to determine what they should get Adam for his b-day in 2010. On the list:

    #3 – the YSL boots he loved (11%)
    #2 – adopt a peacock (wtf?) (22%)
    #1 – another charity drive (34%)

    Voting ends tomorrow (10/10) at noon.

    I think a Muse-like song for the orchestra track is a good bet.

  34. Re: Budget. You know the saying: Fast. Good. Cheap. Choose two.

    Given that they have to be fast, I’m very glad they’re not going the cheap route.

  35. Still really hate the jacket (so you better duck twice 4evermomof4). Actually, suebrody, I’m with you on 90% of things sartorial. (that was my $10 word for the day).

    But strings; now that sounds good. Very good!

    And I’m especially with you dhunken. Eclectic would be excellent!!! Somethings that I already love and somethings new … that I didn’t know I’d like…

    Yes 19/RCA … please get out of the artists’ way and then do a great promotion job x100.

    This is getting to be more fun now.

    And thanks to MJ for taking every teensy opportunity to make us our very own thread … practical and considerate. WIN

  36. Okay, I asked this on the headline thread, but how does a tour work with a song done by an entire orchestra? I’m completely serious about this question. Anyone? How do they substitute for this? I’m really looking forward to hearing this song.

    Either run a backing track or rearrange the song for the tour — maybe it’s a song that would also work as stripped-down acoustic or with a couple of driving guitars or just some violin stuff done on the synth.

    Very few singers tour with all the instruments and vocal backup featured on their albums, after all …

    But didn’t he actually say “a *string* orchestra” rather than a full orchestra? (could be me hallucinating)

  37. Okay, I asked this on the headline thread, but how does a tour work with a song done by an entire orchestra? I’m completely serious about this question. Anyone? How do they substitute for this? I’m really looking forward to hearing this song.

    I’m just taking a stab in the dark here, so I could be totally wrong, but maybe a small live orchestra with synthesized accompaniment for fuller sound?

  38. I think a Muse-like song for the orchestra track is a good bet.

    Yes – I really like the Muse comparison for the song – I can definitely see it having that kind of vibe, with the orchestra usage and his love of Muse.

    BTW – has Adam ever talked much about Radiohead? They always kinda reminded me of Muse too (though not quite, of course). And they may be a little too angsty at times for his preference, but I can see some kind of Radiohead influence there as well. They are pretty eclectic and love adding electronic elements without destroying the vocals in the process.

  39. The anticipation is getting out of control. Think it’s an intentional strategy?

  40. ‘Beautiful and hopeful, very fitting,’  but then couldn’t elaborate, ‘Can’t. Phone were confiscated at door. Also, I’m an ethical guy. I cannot do that.’  Boo!

    What makes me happy is that this writer/columnist did not have to answer the twitterer back…especially if he thought the song sucked. There was no reason he had to comment and say it was Beautiful. Also he was there mostly to view the movie not the song, so the fact that it stuck with him enough to leave an impression to comment on I think bodes very well for the song.

  41. I’m just taking a stab in the dark here, so I could be totally wrong, but maybe a small live orchestra with synthesized accompaniment for fuller sound?

    I think it really depends. I saw Bernadette Peters in DC recently, and she had a local group back her up – it was a pretty large orchestra, and she sang a mix of show tunes, ballads, etc.

    There were some stories I remember hearing about the Beatles, and how they were able to tour with some of the interesting musical accompaniments for their songs (after all, they used a lot of strings, horns, etc.) Not sure though about what they wound up doing when they would actually tour.

    I’m guessing, for the sake of money, that the above answer may be more likely.

  42. Adam is such an amazing man, he is in a league of his own. His versatility still STUNS me. I can’t think of another singer who is capable of pulling off so many different styles of singing so successfully. That is why I have no doubt I will love all the songs on his new record.

  43. I love the jacket

    I love strings and muse-like songs

    I love to know that they are investing a lot in the album, he deserves each cent and effort

    Cant wait for the songs to come!

  44. Good point about Radiohead. They went rogue apparently on their last album and it sold really well (you could actually buy it on their website for a few weeks first!). I like Muse better, but Radiohead totally goes with the conceptual album.

    Clearly, Adam is going the pop/rock/electro route on this album, but maybe he will go more conceptual with the next one. Muse has a few radio-ready singles, and the rest of the album works with them (orchestral arrangements!).

  45. Speaking of clothes/accessories, the folks at IDF are running a poll to determine what they should get Adam for his b-day in 2010. On the list:

    #3 ‘“ the YSL boots he loved (11%)
    #2 ‘“ adopt a peacock (wtf?) (22%)
    #1 ‘“ another charity drive (34%)

    Voting ends tomorrow (10/10) at noon.

    Ok what’s the explanation on the adopt a peacock gift idea :?:

    My vote is number 1

  46. #3 ‘“ the YSL boots he loved (11%)
    #2 ‘“ adopt a peacock (wtf?) (22%)
    #1 ‘“ another charity drive (34%)

    Yes – I go with #1. The fact that Adam himself has gone out of his way to say that he felt bad getting so many gifts and having people spend so much money on him, when there are so many more useful ways that money could be used to help people who need it more. I think he’d appreciate a charity more than a freaking peacock (wtf indeed…)

    October 9, 2009 at 1:14 pm But didn’t he actually say ‘a *string* orchestra’  rather than a full orchestra? (could be me hallucinating)

    He tweeted, ” At Capitol studios observing full string orchestra recording for one of my songs!! It’s amazing!!!!!
    about 18 hours ago from Echofon”

    Think you are right, he was referring to a full string rather than full orchestra.

  48. Ok what’s the explanation on the adopt a peacock gift idea

    Maybe because Adam once said in an interview something along the lines that he wanted his hair to have those blue/green hues like on a peacock feather? It’s still kinda “out there” for a gift idea, though!

  49. lucy
    October 9, 2009 at 1:14 pm But didn’t he actually say ‘a *string* orchestra’  rather than a full orchestra? (could be me hallucinating)

    Both. He tweeted, ‘  At Capitol studios observing full string orchestra recording for one of my songs!! It’s amazing!!!!!
    about 18 hours ago from Echofon’ 

    Thanks — Good, I’m not hallucinating. … Still leaves us not knowing what he meant, of course. I’d think it probably meant “A whole lot of strings — as many as you’d have in a symphony,” though, rather than “a full orchestra.”

    Eventually, we’ll find out, I guess.

  50. I think he’d appreciate the charity drive the most of that list. Peacock is insane (and they’re high maintenance pets. I don’t think he needs anything more high maintenance than himself) and why deprive him of the pleasure of buying the boots himself? Assuming YSL doesn’t GIVE him a pair.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if his page at DonorsChoose got up to 500k? Or more?

    They’d run out of projects. They *did* run out of drama and music projects during the first campaign.

  51. I think he’d appreciate the charity drive the most of that list. Peacock is insane (and they’re high maintenance pets. I don’t think he needs anything more high maintenance than himself)

    I’m guessing this is a virtual adoption, like what they do at the zoo. My son “adopted” a zebra from our city zoo for a friend of his, for example, which means his donation helped fund feeding/care for the animal. She got a picture of the zebra in the mail and gets occasional updates on him.

  52. I think he’d appreciate the charity drive the most of that list. Peacock is insane (and they’re high maintenance pets


    100% agree

    I don’t think he needs anything more high maintenance than himself)


    Love Adam but this was Hysterical!!!

    why deprive him of the pleasure of buying the boots himself? Assuming YSL doesn’t GIVE him a pair.


    I have a feeling he either already bought them or YSL gave him a pair!

  53. if he is looking for a middle aged shopping companion, then I would consider buying him any gift he wants’ ¦

    LOL! Like in “Breakfast at Tiffanys?” I wouldn’t have minded being the older gal who helped with George Peppard’s “career” — not a bad deal for her, that’s for sure!

  54. What makes me happy is that this writer/columnist did not have to answer the twitterer back’ ¦

    Unless it was one of those relentless twitterers tweeters.

  55. I’d go with the charity drive – it benefits everyone and generates great publicity too.

  56. I’m thinking that the orchestra music will be recorded or a stripped down will be done live. I think you’ve got to be a major star to be able to afford a full orchestra.

  57. Ok what’s the explanation on the adopt a peacock gift idea

    I have no idea. I’m not a poster over there, only a lurker. The adopt-a-zoo-pet theory sounds about right, but considering how generous the IDFers have been in the past, I’m guessing they could collect enough to adopt an entire flock of peacocks.

    And Adam would have an endless supply of feathers for his !JACKETS!

  58. “Heck, I’ll buy his coffee, iron his clothes, wash his underwear’ ¦ok, backing down now’ ¦deep breaths’ ¦must. keep. waiting. patiently’ ¦”

    I just want to be his official Glitter Girl. I’d keep everyone glittered and rhinestoned, whenever needed. I think it would be a great gig. Very little responsibility, lots of fun.

    I love the full string orchestra for one of his songs. This makes me so much more excited for his album, if that’s even possible.

    Thanks for posting, MJ

  59. I’d go with the charity drive ‘“ it benefits everyone and generates great publicity too.

    Unless it was one of those relentless twitterers tweeters.

    I didn’t tweet him that much…oh I mean I don’t think anyone tweeted him that much… J/K :mrgreen:

  61. Yeah, charity drives are the way to go. LOL on adopting a peacock, tho. And remember that in the US interview, Kris noted that he had been asked to glam up his look and he thought maybe a few feathers would help. Then Adam imitated a bird or something. So perhaps he and Kris could go into the adoption scenario. ;)

  62. …considering how generous the IDFers have been in the past, I’m guessing they could collect enough to adopt an entire flock of peacocks.

    Yeah, and while adopting a zoo pet is charitable, we haven’t known Adam to be a supporter of animal causes. He may be, of course, but this isn’t something that’s been publicized. Rather, he’s stated numerous times that he supports the arts in education, so I think if they insist on getting a gift for his birthday, it should be to DonorsChoose or another of the charities he’s been known to support.

  63. I don’t get the verbiage in this story:

    http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00027842.html

    The singer, who will announce 2009 AMAs nominations alongside Paula Abdul and Snoop Dogg on October 13, has also scored music for upcoming movie “2012 (2009)”.

    Uh,,,surely, the writer meant he “scored” in the sense that he won the job, i.e., he beat out other unnamed candidates (who were 100% certainly NOT fellow Idols), and NOT that he “scored”, or wrote the music for, any part of the soundtrack. Uh,,,I guess writers don’t need to know much about the subtleties of the English language anymore.

  64. Teri63,

    And I offer dressing room ‘assistance’ on a completely complimentary basis for any clothing shopping excursions…

  65. I’d go with the charity drive ‘“ it benefits everyone and generates great publicity too.

    But, what’s to become of all the poor orphaned peacocks?
    They need love too.

  66. I am also willing to listen to any of the tracks on his upcoming album, TBA/TBD, and give feedback.

  67. And I offer dressing room ‘assistance’ on a completely complimentary basis for any clothing shopping excursions’ ¦

    Uh,,,don’t forget to bring along your tailor’s tape measure! Some things usually eyeballed are best measured….

  68. suebrody,

    I only willing to do that in person accompanied by Adam, at a location of his choice!!LOL

  69. String orchestra? Ah, go jump in the ocean you tease.

    Love the jacket though.

  70. Adam tweeted, ‘  At Capitol studios observing full string orchestra recording for one of my songs!! It’s amazing!!!!!

    string orchestra – an orchestra playing only stringed instruments. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/string+orchestra

    A string orchestra is ‘ ¦composed solely of certain instruments of the string family. They’ ¦are the violin, the viola, the violoncello, the double bass…the piano, the harp…String orchestras can be of chamber orchestra size ranging from between 12 and 21 musicians…or consist of the entire string section of a large symphony orchestra which could have 60 musicians …

  71. I’d go with the charity drive ‘“ it benefits everyone and generates great publicity too.

    But, what’s to become of all the poor orphaned peacocks?
    They need love too.

    I would think that with all the $$ Adam’s fan clubs generate on his behalf, they could afford to send some to the San Diego Zoo to care for his fine-feathered friends AND pick another of Adam’s charities to which to contribute.

  72. Adam has said that his album will be eclectic and it seems that ´s what we will get :-)

    I think a charity drive will be the perfect gift or maybe we woud like to see Adam walking the peacock around LA ;-)

  73. Adam is such an amazing man, he is in a league of his own. His versatility still STUNS me. I can’t think of another singer who is capable of pulling off so many different styles of singing so successfully. That is why I have no doubt I will love all the songs on his new record.

    I don’t got no idea what you’re your talking about, anthro.

    Did you hear? When not otherwise occupied, he’s composing symphonies and film scores.

    BTW, I recently saw Kenny Loggins performing with the Pacific Symphony. It was awesome. So cool that he can have potential gigs like that in his future. And also amazing how he can do anything! I can picture him on a stage with only a piano for accompaniment, in a small theater, filling a football stadium or performing with a full symphony. *whispers* squeee.

    Uh,,,currently in the running for Best Comment o’ the Day.

  78. Peacocks? Random. But in general I’m all for helping wildlife by donating to organizations to protect endangered species (of which peacocks are not one) or for donating to animal shelters and foster programs in the US. I give to both charities, and environmental ones, which help wildlife as well. But peacocks?

    Lemon curry?

    Oops, wrong thread.

  79. string orchestra – an orchestra playing only stringed instruments.

    Uh,,,ok, this is all starting to come together now. Remember when he said there would likely be one cover on the CD? Well, I’ve cracked the Masonic symbolic code woven into the semiotic meaning of his jacket and have determined that he’s doing a Singspiel (the origination of rap) cover of Mozart’s “Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schà ¶n” from The Magic Flute! He is a vocal chord virtuoso, after all, so who better to revive the Singspiel art form!?

  80. Okay, I asked this on the headline thread, but how does a tour work with a song done by an entire orchestra? I’m completely serious about this question. Anyone?

    Just went to the Muse/U2 concert. Muse didn’t sing the songs that had full orchestra backups during the concert! Actually, they only sang 6 songs. SBH, Starlight, Uprising, Undisclosed Desires, and Resistance. I think the other one was Knights of Cirdonia. But, they didnt’ sing US of Eurasia or any of the others that had orchestra backup.

  81. I am also willing to listen to any of the tracks on his upcoming album, TBA/TBD, and give feedback.

    Do you need an assistant? ;-)

    Yes. Yes, I am. I mean, do.

    If Adam scored a full- stringed orchestra, WHY CAN’T WE SCORE A SNIPPET OF MUSIC?

    Just askin’.

    All Adam threads will implode during the Adam storm. I would say to bring your hoodies, but I do not think Adam owns any glittery hoodies. Tho he ought to.

    ETA:

    Yes, but they were U2’s opening band. They were not the headliners. Once Adam is the headliner, anything is possible. But that makes sense for now.

  83. Uh,,,I’m pretty sure I read part of that Adam birthday gift thread a while back. As far as I remember, the peacock idea was because of the colours and the strutting – both of which suit Adam perfectly. Uh,,,and it was definitely the zoo-adoption thing they were talking about (I think the Lambskanks were considering “adopt a lamb”). The last thing I read was that they were considering to adopt a peacock and donate the remainder of the collected amount to charity (peacocks are about $300 a year).

  84. Just went to the Muse/U2 concert. Muse didn’t sing the songs that had full orchestra backups during the concert! Actually, they only sang 6 songs. SBH, Starlight, Uprising, Undisclosed Desires, and Resistance. I think the other one was Knights of Cirdonia. But, they didnt’ sing US of Eurasia or any of the others that had orchestra backup.

    Oh, that’s sad. Because, even though I haven’t yet heard it, I already love Adam’s string-enhanced song and want to see it live. I want to see him sing EVERYTHING he does live!

  85. I’m thrilled for Adam. This is all a dream come true for Adam,,,and the dream is just beginning.

    I hope that it all works out for all of us, too,,,,though so far we’re still left just dreaming about what the songs sound like. But, when I see tweets like that, I get more hopeful that the album won’t suck.

  86. maybe we woud like to see Adam walking the peacock around LA

    Can he sing a couple notes while he’s at it so we know if he has “C”‘s or “D”s in his song. At this rate, it will be after his BD b/f we know anyways.

  87. Didn’t Elvis have a flock of peacocks (until they chipped paint off of his car)?

  88. Thanks to those who answered the touring question. : ) My bad on the full orchestra vs. full string orchestra. :/

  89. Adam likes feathers and peacock feathers are beautiful. Male peacocks are beautiful regal birds who strut their stuff.

    I like the charity idea best.

  90. Uh,,,ok, this is all starting to come together now. Remember when he said there would likely be one cover on the CD? Well, I’ve cracked the Masonic symbolic code woven into the semiotic meaning of his jacket and have determined that he’s doing a Singspiel (the origination of rap) cover of Mozart’s ‘Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schà ¶n’  from The Magic Flute! He is a vocal chord virtuoso, after all, so who better to revive the Singspiel art form!?

    Uh,,,helloooo? I mean who couldn’t see THAT coming? Jeez, talk about obvious … I really hoped for more subtlety from him.

  91. Uh,,,ok, this is all starting to come together now. Remember when he said there would likely be one cover on the CD?

    OK. Sorry to whoever was holding the title up to now … But Anthrogeek is now getting “best comment of the day” (so far) and this will be awfully hard to beat.

  92. Oh, that’s sad. Because, even though I haven’t yet heard it, I already love Adam’s string-enhanced song and want to see it live. I want to see him sing EVERYTHING he does live!

    Oh so I am not the only one….Whew! (Deep sigh of relief) ;-)

  93. Oh so I am not the only one’ ¦.Whew! (Deep sigh of relief)

    Nope, you’re not alone. That’s what’s fun about these Adam threads — knowing how many of us are in the same docked boat, just waiting (…and waiting…and waiting…).

  94. OK. Sorry to whoever was holding the title up to now ‘ ¦ But Anthrogeek is now getting ‘best comment of the day’  (so far) and this will be awfully hard to beat.

    Actually, the first one was hers too. She’s only in competition with herself. Kind of like uh,,,Who?

  95. SusanM: Uh,,,helloooo? I mean who couldn’t see THAT coming? Jeez, talk about obvious ‘ ¦ I really hoped for more subtlety from him.

    Uh,,,helloooo, have you MET him??? Adam doesn’t do subtle!

  96. So true alaadam! I wish we still had clapping smilies. I’d stretch them all across the page.

    But about those peacocks … my mother says that peacock feathers are bad luck and she’s never wrong (!?) … so none of them for Adam. Ok!?

  97. Oh, that’s sad. Because, even though I haven’t yet heard it, I already love Adam’s string-enhanced song and want to see it live. I want to see him sing EVERYTHING he does live!

    and, in the tightest, most form fitting pants as possible!!!!!!

  98. Actually, the first one was hers too. She’s only in competition with herself. Kind of like uh,,,Who?

    Uh,,,Who?

  99. All Adam threads will implode during the Adam storm. I would say to bring your hoodies…

    Uh,,,Hell no, on the hoodies! I’m going to run out in the storm, throw my head back, stretch out my arms and let the rain pelt me right in the face. I’m going to let the Adamstorm pour down all over me…so to speak.

  100. Uh,,,Hell no, on the hoodies! I’m going to run out in the storm, throw my head back, stretch out my arms and let the rain pelt me right in the face. I’m going to let the Adamstorm pour down all over me’ ¦so to speak.

    Uh,,,right now I’d settle for a little projectile drooling just to get those rain clouds seeded.

    Best version of “It’s Raining Men” – RuPaul or the Weather Girls? I say WG… unless Adam covers it, then he wins, hands down and cupped.

  101. Uh,,,Hell no, on the hoodies! I’m going to run out in the storm, throw my head back, stretch out my arms and let the rain pelt me right in the face. I’m going to let the Adamstorm pour down all over me’ ¦so to speak.

    But, we’ve had storm warnings for weeks. The weather department needs to take another look at the glittery clouds or be accused of the Alien crying wolf! Losing patience here! I’ve already put up my rain coat.

  102. P!NK sang songs that had orchestra back-up. She had one violin and one cello and it worked.
    Also, Coldplay does it with a backing track for some of their songs. Chris is still singing live and the band is playing but there is a backing track for the orchestra, like in Viva La Vida. I mean there is no way they could not play that song at their concerts.
    Like I said, it works!

  103. and, in the tightest, most form fitting pants as possible!!!!!!

    uh,,,are we talking about his Magic Flute?

  104. Cate

    Cate shoots, she scores,,,orchestral soundtracks.

    Uh,,,though the subject at hand may have been his peacock… and what a “lovely cock” it is…

  105. Uh,,,don’t forget to bring along your tailor’s tape measure! Some things usually eyeballed are best measured’ ¦.

    Are you saying, uh,,, what I am thinking (or should I say visualizing)? I’m sorry, I am just grinning from ear to ear. You did it again, anthrogeek!!!

  106. Aimee would be happy to be in attendance with her cello.

    ITA: Any music leakage yet???

  107. Uh,,,though the subject at hand may have been his peacock’ ¦ and what a ‘lovely cock’  it is’ ¦

    OK, anthro, you did it again, again. I am looking pretty foolish to continually be, grinning my, uh,,, Adam grin.

  108. “Projectile drooling” eeeew … and for all the rest :lol: :lol: :lol:

  109. Uh,,,though the subject at hand may have been his peacock’ ¦ and what a ‘lovely cock’  it is’ ¦

    Uh,,,I want to adopt Adam’s peacock.

  110. Aimee would be happy to be in attendance with her cello.

    ooh. ooh. ooh. Did Aimee talk about cellos? Are hints starting to come together suebrody?

  111. tiger92,

    you may have 10’s of thousands of competitors to secure THAT adoption, including myself ……

  112. This tweet cracked me up and pretty much sums up how I am feeling right now!

    GLambert_3799: By the time @adamlambert single comes out “Live like you were dying” and “Friday I’ll be over you” will be considered golden oldies.

  113. Crap it’s a real good thing I’m working from home today ‘“ could not possibly suppress the LULZ if I was in the office.

    @Cate, that Magic Flute line was an overhead smash ‘“ but nice return, anthro! As the self-appointed line judge, I have carefully reviewed the instant replay and I’m going to have to give that point to Cate.

    (Please, no melt-downs, anthro, you’re still our No. 1 seed ‘“ glitter cloud-seeder, that is.)

    Oh, and Weather Girls, “It’s Raining Men” will NEVER get old.


  114. Aimee would be happy to be in attendance with her cello.

    ooh. ooh. ooh. Did Aimee talk about cellos? Are hints starting to come together suebrody?

    I wish, but she did mention playing her cello yesterday. I just want her to be involved with his album, b/c I feel like she and I have become friends. ;)

  115. I just want her to be involved with his album, b/c I feel like she and I have become friends. ;)

    Yes. I’m beginning to think that I’ll get all emotional … when she gets all emotional … when her song does/doesn’t get onto the album.

    Crossing fingers for Aimee
    (especially if it’s a smash hit waiting to happen)

  116. Uh,,,to quote the great 21st century philosopher Serena P. Williams, ‘you’re lucky I don’t shove this f***in’ ball down your throat!’ 

    OMG!!!!! Anthro is on such a rrrrroll today.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    (poor Serena. we all have really, really, really bad days)

  117. NewFan, I tweeted her. I hope I have not caused any emotional breakdown…

  118. Some further information about the press junket in Wyoming that was posted elsewhere.

    The LA premiere was supposed to be on November 4th, but now it is listed as TBA. The press junket for the cast is going on now at Yellowstone National Park but the only ones listed to attend are John , Amanda, Chewitel and Roland. So it is only the main cast and the director. Once this junket is finished, there should be a lot of press about the movie since they would have spent three days doing tons of media. Hopefully the music or Adam’s name may come up in one of these interview. My guess is that after this junket , the premiere date will be reset or released. I was hoping the press junket would have been in LA none scheduled so far. Pictures from this junket and print and TV interviews should be starting next week once this junket is done. Hopefully we will start to hear more information on the music.

    Can’t vouch for the accuracy … take with usual dose of salt.

  119. suebrody

    I think that we should all hold hands and cross our toes for Aimee.

  120. A HUGE pre-Christmas treat for Adam fans – check out youtube for MagicalLadee’s Adam Lambert Christmas Tree – I have died and gone to Adamheaven…..

    Can I have him in my stocking please!!!! MagicalLadee – you are a star!!

    PASS THIS ON!!

  121. Do you think that MJ sometimes gets a few giggles before she deletes us?

  122. Uh,,,soooo’ ¦ how ’bout that screen cap??

    http://www.moontripgraphics.com/2012cap.jpg

    That is totally photoshopped’ ¦right?

    Uh,,, that was in one of the IMDB’s trailer. It showed some quick credits and: Featuring Adam Lambert. Unbelievable, many times when someone has a small part in a movie or TV show, but nevertheless a big star, they will bill that person as: Featuring…

  123. The LA premiere was supposed to be on November 4th, but now it is listed as TBA.

    Uh,,,What does that mean? The opening has been pushed back again?

  124. no, the screen cap is not photo-shopped that is the actual screen cap, it is in some of the trailers right now

  125. Popping in for a sec, so will try to cover the whole thread:
    1) LOOOVE string orchestra – Magic Flute makes sense from many points of view, including Anthro’s and Cate’s LOL!
    2) Jacket – I would say “no” to it, unless it’s on Adam’s body…and since it seems to be on his body – then I’ll say “yes”…especially it goes well with the little brown paper bag…what an accessory!
    3) gifts: charity – hands down…
    4) movie screen cap – WOW! alone on the whole screen! GO RCA negotiations team!
    5) …and now to the main thought on all our minds – no leaks! – i think its all good – they are in control of the world, and that’s how we want Adam’s world to be… especially after the photo shoot thingy….

  126. naw, I don’t think MJ laughs, but rather, makes a list of those of us she should recommend for institutional commitment.

  127. A HUGE pre-Christmas treat for Adam fans ‘“ check out youtube for MagicalLadee’s Adam Lambert Christmas Tree ‘“ I have died and gone to Adamheaven’ ¦..

    Uh,,,I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m pretty much over all the compilation vids. I need NEW material – stat!

  128. Actually, to correct myself, it is called a Featurette in IMDB for 2012. They have a Trailer, Clip, and Featurette.

  129. naw, I don’t think MJ laughs, but rather, makes a list of those of us she should recommend for institutional commitment.

    uh,,,She’s probably already “skede” about the comments to come when some music is actually leaked!

  130. Something new on Adam. Hopefully, this will keep us going until the release of his singles and videos. Wow!!! Hold onto your seats. Or warning, keep your drinks away from your computer screens and keyboard. OMG, I can hardly contain myself. BRB

  131. MagicalLadee’s Adam Lambert Christmas Tree

    My tree needed a new star.

    I want to be excited, but srsly other than super invested Adam fans who will notice that? It’s like 0.01 sec at the end of one of tens of trailers. I don’t know how much power is needed to negotiate a ‘featuring’…js

  134. hey guys!!!!! probably will do homework today D: so I can b here most of Sunday and Monday and maasaybe a little tommorow.

    45  days, 9  hours, 26  minutes and 47  seconds

    UNTIL THE ALBUM!!!!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE*10000000000

    full strings?AWESOME THIS HAS TO BA INCREDIBLE

    where is the picture from?the one that mj used?

    lmao amthrogeek you’re on a roll today:)

    and I think Aimee mayo I AWESOME and will proooobably die with her I’d her song doesn’t make it

    brb catching up on the thread

    WHERE IS THE MUSIC!!!!!?????????

    PLZZZZZZZZzzz IM DESPERATE!!!!!!!!

    oh and after this wait is the music isn’t kick a$$ ….;(

  135. I wonder what theater staff will think when people start showing up for the closing credits?

    More padded rooms needed. Perhaps we should just eliminate some fuss and just have one giant, communal “commitment” ceremony.

    it will probably be longer on the sreen in the movie credits, but the main thing – he has the whole screen to himself, not another 20 names to confuse the eye….

    and – this THE FIRST credits for Adam in the major movie! I hope many more will follow – but this IS the first!

  138. I wonder if his music video will be shown at the end of the movie…

  139. I wonder what theater staff will think when people start showing up for the closing credits?

    do not even laugh – my plan is to go see another movie and to get into the 2012 only to hear the TFM = see the credits!

    Okay, I asked this on the headline thread, but how does a tour work with a song done by an entire orchestra? I’m completely serious about this question. Anyone? How do they substitute for this? I’m really looking forward to hearing this song.

    PattyH has been the closest to the answer as I’ve skimmed through. The orchestra track is transferred into a synthesizer and when piped through the sound system you get the full effect of a live orchestra.

    I’m a major Depeche Mode fan and they have recorded with live orchestras in the past and have transferred the track to the synths for the concerts. Other bands do the same thing or strip it down with only a few instruments live.

    I’m betting Adam will go the synth route to have the full effect during concerts.

  142. I want to be excited, but srsly other than super invested Adam fans who will notice that? It’s like 0.01 sec at the end of one of tens of trailers. I don’t know how much power is needed to negotiate a ‘featuring” ¦js

    My theory is some people watching the clip (who are not AI fans) may pause the video at that point to read what it says. (I know I would being it is all by itself, I am nosy that way)…..In addition that is .01 second more visibility then he had before. :-) and if it plays in theaters for promo’s….whoa nelly!

  143. hi suebrody!!!:)

    sooooooo nothing going on today in adamland?
    and yes,I do think mj giggles;)

    be back in a couple hrs

  144. It says Oct 20th for the US Amazon site. Yay! Finally, but I want to hear more of the song. Sqeeeeeeeee.

    btw ‘“ #8 on amazon, do not know if it’s good or bad

    I think being in the top ten with no info on it other then Adam will sing on it is good. It is day 13 so staying in the top 10 makes me believe it is more then just enthusiastic fans keeping him there. IMHO… and it is better the 18 or 28 or 38 or 48…well you get my drift.

  147. If volunteers are needed for an Adam entourage, I donate my services as the ‘grip’ on his music video.

  151. How stupid of me-I played it and didn’t realize it was “the song” . Sounds pretty! Now, if I take it and make it repeat three times, it will be almost as long as my “Beth” mp3.

  152. The 20 second preview of Time for Miracles on amazon is AMAZING!

    Go listen to it NOW!

    OMG!!!! It is him!!!! It is amazing!!!

  153. Uh,,,it does sound a little country rockish – wish we could hear the soaring vocals part!! AARRGGHH!! The agony!!!

    “It sounds radio friendly and it’s PURE ADAM! They didn’t mess with his voice.”

    lol no, maybe AC radio if you are lucky…maybe it can be his magic rainbow.. I know how cook just loves that song.

  166. It really isn’t rational how happy a 15 sec snippet of song is making me. It sounds beautiful. He sounds beautiful.

    Thank god for twitter.

    Me too, Sunn!!! I am soooo beyond excited right now. I can only imagine how it’s going to build. Beautiful!!

    (Note to AP, someone needs to invent a new punctuation mark to convey effusive enthusiasm besides the infinite exclamation point ‘“ just a thought.)

    Meanwhile, SQUEEEEEE!!!!!

  167. This sounds great! I totally can’t wait to see him singing this in the music video!

  168. It only on Amazon UK. It says the release date is Oct 25….(breathing Heavy) I love the snippet…..It is 4:43 sec long. Does sound like what I was expecting….

  171. What’t the lyrics?? Nothin will stand in the way…..cause it’s time for miracles and cause I ain’t giving up on luv…..

  172. Wow, 4 times now I’ve listened. Fabulous!!!!

    The very first part of the snippet reminds me of a song with a line ” I haven’t got time for the pain.” Song and singer alluding me at the moment -a senior moment caused by Adam.

    Somebody help me, I want to say Carly Simon.

  173. Squirelly. Wow. What research. You’re my new hero!

    And there has been about 30 comments in just under 2 seconds. Also wow.

  174. Well, I listened to the TFM snippet off of Amazon UK – listened 2X’s does not sound like Adam’s voice to me. Anyone else listen yet??

  175. it’s soooo friggin gorgeous.

    just playing it over and over

    I’m supposed to pick up my brother frm the bus stop.he can wait.

    OMFA THAT VOICE!!!!!

  176. OMG I love it. It’s a winner! I can’t wait for the entire song!!!!!!!!!

  177. Sounds like a coronation song (kind of cheezy, no?)! Love the vocals though, especially the high part.

    10x and yes to me it does….

  179. Eh, sounds like standard bad movie, end credit schlock.. to me’ ¦ at least from that clip..

    I was trying to find a nice way to put it, but I think you found the right words.
    20 seconds of cheesy ballad.

  180. Oh. My. Ra.
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The exclamation point button on my computer just fell off….

  181. I can’t breathe!!!! OMG! Obama wins Peace Prize AND Adam music!!!! It is time for Miracles!!!!!!!

  182. omfa thnx Adam.now I know what I’m going to do 4 the rest of the weekend.SOOOO GORGEOUS!!!!

  183. Uh,,,ok, let’s think this thru… it’s available for d/l on the listed date (depending where you are), but what does that mean in terms of actual release to airplay/video/whatever, so we can hear the whole song?????? Sooner than that????

  184. “Sounds like a coronation song! Love the vocals though, especially the high part.”

    Magic Rainbow 2.0

  185. He’s using his lower register for this part. I’m sure there will be glory notes later.

    It’s beautiful. It’s Adam. It’s REAL.

  186. Oh that is DEFINETELY Adam, it’s escpecially noticable in the first phrase.

    I have listened to every recorded song by Adam out there – he changes up his voice to fit the song and the music. Not everything by Adam is all about the higher register.

  188. Wait till you hear the crescendo at the end, not yet available.

    I DO NOT CARE IF IT IS A CORONATION SONG, AS IT IS ADAM AND IT IS NEW MUSIC AND IT HAS TO BE BETTER THAN NoBo.

    *flailing*

    I love ToML, btw. And I do listen to the craptastic NoBo everyday. Just sayin’.

  189. It shows ‘Original Release Date: 16 Oct 2009 ‘ for me ???

    Can we assume that this is THE DATE ????

    Another Friday????? Was some kind of law enacted consigning all Idol releases to Friday, or what?

  190. All disaster films have an ‘everything will be fine’ ending song – I love what I’ve heard so far of this one. I’m so happy it’s all him, now I hope his album is the same.

  191. Uh,,,ok, let’s think this thru’ ¦ it’s available for d/l on the listed date (depending where you are), but what does that mean in terms of actual release to airplay/video/whatever, so we can hear the whole song?????? Sooner than that????

    Just a guess here, but the Amazon page says “Original Release Date: October 16, 2009 ” But the purchase area says “Available on October 20. 2009”. I would think it will get “premiered” somewhere onthe 16th and we’ll here it and will be available at Amazon/iTunes for purchase on the 20th.

  192. OMG! We need a TFM snippet thread……I am so excited! His voice is gorgeous.

  193. Posted my reaction to the snippet on the headlines, but seems like the conversation is here. What I said:

    Snippets are always hard to judge, but it’s pretty, and sounds like Adam (not over-processed). I was expecting more of a rock ballad, but the snippet sounds more like a straight ballad. But again, snippets are hard to judge. Congrats, Adam fans, you gotta crumb!

    20 seconds of cheesy ballad.

    Yeah, it’s a little cheesy, but like I said, 20 seconds is not enough to judge the whole song. I imagine the song will build and hopefully get more interesting. But so far, these 20 seconds seem more AC than Top 40, radio-wise.

    Which is fine, cuz I’m sure the single from the record would represent him much better. I wonder how they’ll figure out the timing on the two songs’ release.

  194. I DO NOT CARE IF IT IS A CORONATION SONG, AS IT IS ADAM AND IT IS NEW MUSIC AND IT HAS TO BE BETTER THAN NoBo.

    *flailing*

    I love ToML,

    And look at the amazing history of TOML…..

    A non-triumphal, non-cheesy ending song just wouldn’t work for that movie. Period. Some mighty good singing on this one.

    Uh,,,huh??? Mine says the 20th! I like yours better!

    Go here

    http://www.amazon.com/Time-For-Miracles/dp/B002SB3ARO/ref=sr_shvl_album_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1255119145&sr=301-3

    Over at right (green square), it says the 20th there, too’ ¦ so’ ¦.. 16th for radio release to hear it, then available for d/l on the 20th???

    anthro – the single can be downloaded on Oct 16th – the album on Oct 20th. When I clicked on “Time For Miracles” the price was $1.29 for the single!!!

  196. Listened 2 more times – yes it is our Adam! When I first listened, the back up singers singing along with him threw me off. Happy Friday!!!! after all!!!!!

  197. Ok in one place it says release on Oct 20 in another is says Oct 16…Which is that Friday thing again..What’s with Idol and Friday release dates???????

  198. That short snippet sounds fantastic, I am buying it the moment it comes out. It sounds Aerosmithish, who I absolutely love.

    While we are volunteering for jobs, I wil be willing to be the person to check Adam after he gets dressed, for loose threads and lint. I will thorough and professional, taking my time and checking him out from his head to his toes. I will especially take time on his pants, because we wouldn’t anything to obscure the view.

    It shows ‘Original Release Date: 16 Oct 2009 ‘ for me ???

    Can we assume that this is THE DATE ????

    Another Friday????? Was some kind of law enacted consigning all Idol releases to Friday, or what?

    Other artists are starting to be released on Friday’s also.

  200. OMG Twitter is the BOMB!!! It is so gorgeous!!!!! OK, now give us the whole song-let us buy it!!!!

  201. I get the country rock vibe, at the beginning of the song snippet that almost sounds like a country steel guitar then crescendos into more of a string sound. Also I think the 4:43 is the length of the song, not the length of the snippet.

    ETA…Perhaps the Beatles “Strawberry Fields”?

  202. anthro ‘“ the single can be downloaded on Oct 16th ‘“ the album on Oct 20th. When I clicked on ‘Time For Miracles’  the price was $1.29 for the single!!!

    What’s a TFM album? Wouldn’t the album it’s from be the whole 2012 soundtrack? That’s why I’m wondering if by “Original Release Date: October 16, 2009” they means it will be released for airplay/vid/whatever, even if we can’t buy it till the 20th….?

  203. Does the song have a little Beatles feeling? Something about the ascending chords… especially the last phrase. Or maybe I have been playing too much Beatles lately…

  204. #timeformiracles should begin trending in 3, 2, 1…

    I want to buy it now. *snif* How many times can I listen to a SNIPPET?

    (I know, I have said I would be satisfied w/ a snippet, but I TOTALLY LIED.)

    ETA: Yes, 4:43 is the time of the entire song. I am getting a Beatles vibe, too, a “All You Need Is Love” vibe.

  205. I think it sounds like a rock ballad, and I don’t care if the lyrics are cheesy, Adam’s voice sounds fabulous! so we’ll be able to buy it next Friday?? Awesome!

  206. Other artists are starting to be released on Friday’s also.

    Interesting. I wonder what the idea is?

  207. Unmistakebly Adam. Can’t judge the song til I hear all of it, but love the snippet!

  208. I know suebrody, twitter has EXPLODED trending should begin anytime now– gotta go back to help the cause….

  209. ‘Original Release Date: October 16, 2009′ ³ they means it will be released for airplay/vid/whatever’ ¦.?”

    as an example… Archies xmas cd on the mp3 album said ‘original release date oct 9th’ which is a mistake, wont be here till the 13th. Sometimes amazon puts up weird dates.. same thing with the bsb album.

  210. do you think they meant for this to be released today??? or was it investigative musicalism???

  211. his voice is such a beautiful instrument. I definitely had tears in my eyes. SO HAPPY

  212. Carly SImon – I haven’t got time for the pain…

    If I’d never heard of Adam, and I heard TfM on the radio – I’d think it was:

    Eric Carmen (of The Rasberries)

    Think “Go All the Way” …. very similar

  213. Eh, sounds like standard bad movie, end credit schlock.. to me’ ¦ at least from that clip..

    movie – bad, song – good: listen to the VOICE/song and do not see the movie…
    quite simple….

  214. What’s a TFM album? Wouldn’t the album it’s from be the whole 2012 soundtrack? That’s why I’m wondering if by ‘Original Release Date: October 16, 2009′ ³ they means it will be released for airplay/vid/whatever’ ¦.?

    Yes the album is entitled 2012 Soundtrack, but on the MP3 download page for Adam it lists the single “Time For Miracle” and gives the price for the single and when I clicked on the title of the single I got the screen with Oct. 16th

  215. The very first part of the snippet reminds me of a song with a line ‘  I haven’t got time for the pain.’  Song and singer alluding me at the moment -a senior moment caused by Adam.

    Somebody help me, I want to say Carly Simon.

    Yep, It’s Carly Simon

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYOL4vClXis

  216. If I’d never heard of Adam, and I heard TfM on the radio ‘“ I’d think it was:

    Eric Carmen (of The Rasberries)

    Think ‘Go All the Way’  ‘ ¦. very similar

    You mean you have heard the whole song?? What? Where?? I only heard a fab snippet.

  217. love the snippet…its kind of 70sish….of COURSE it is going to be kinda cheesy…it is the credit song at the end of a DISASTER movie…they are all cheesy….they start kinda quiet and then build….

  218. Happy dance. Happy dance.

    Now I can go into RL for a few hours … with a really big huge smile.

    but: Luv … sweetheart

    … annoying but little brother … bus stop … big city … you will go and retrieve him some time soon … right? No worries about Adam. He’s in favor of rescuing small children and he’ll wait for you.

  219. I think I’m going to be sick— my stomach is doing flip flops. I’m so happy I want to scream, but I’ll scare my son and traumatize my cat.

    I’ve listened to the snippets— the one from US Amazon sounds more like Adam, for some strange reason.

    I am dying.

  220. Cantiello weighed in:

    jambajim Hmmm….I need to wait until the whole @adamlambert song comes out. First part sounds like Bon Jovi to me. Chorus sounds SICK though. Weeee!less than a minute ago from UberTwitter

  221. Will people throw rocks and shoes and stuff at me if I say that the snippet of TFM doesn’t sound like anything all that wonderful? It’s ok, but I am not jumping up and down going OMG what a fantastic song. It sounds pretty much like a fairly standard soundtrack ballad.

    Now maybe the full version is amazing and unique and all that. But that snippet was not all that for me (for you).

    I’m really glad we finally got to hear any new music from Adam, and the suspense was nuts. But from all the hype I was hoping for something more interesting/incredible than a pretty, but not very unique, soundtrack ballad.

    But, as I say, maybe the full version is more interesting. Adam sounds really good, as always…

  222. I want to buy it now. *snif* How many times can I listen to a SNIPPET?

    (I know, I have said I would be satisfied w/ a snippet, but I TOTALLY LIED.)

    LOL! Sadly, the more I get of Adam, the more I want. But I love the snippet. (But now I want another snippet) *grabby hands*

  223. You mean you have heard the whole song?? What? Where?? I only heard a fab snippet.

    No, just the snippit. But if I was punching through the radio and I heard that 15 seconds, I’d think it was an Eric Carmen song I’d never heard….

  224. 4:43 is the length of the song

    Long songs are appropriate for movie-credits, but not so great for the radio. I’m thinking TFM is like a side thing, and RCA will concentrate radio promo for the first single for the album. Just my conjecture. Who is Eric Carmen?

  225. But from all the hype I was hoping for something more interesting/incredible than a pretty, but not very unique, soundtrack ballad.

    Hehe, it IS a soundrack ballad! :grin:

  226. I’ve listened to the snippets’” the one from US Amazon sounds more like Adam, for some strange reason.

    Uh,,,aloha, are they different snippets of the song on the other sites, or the same ones as on the US site?

  227. “movie ‘“ bad, song ‘“ good: listen to the VOICE/song and do not see the movie’ ¦
    quite simple’ ¦.”

    I dont like his voice regardless, But I wasnt commenting on that anyway. lol Just the song..

  228. girlygirl, I think it’s a typical movie song song too, but I think Adam sounds fantastic. I wasn’t expecting a unique song, I just love his voice.

  229. Eh, sounds like standard bad movie, end credit schlock.. to me’ ¦ at least from that clip..

    I was trying to find a nice way to put it, but I think you found the right words.
    20 seconds of cheesy ballad.

    Wait, that was the nice way? I’d be skeered for the mean way. ;) I was expecting typical cheesy movie song, I mean it’s for a schlocky disaster movie and it’s title is Tiime for Miracles.

    What I wasn’t expecting was the kind of countryish sound in the beginning. Interesting. I do like Adam’s vocals in the latter part of the song and he does definitely sound like Adam.

    Definitely more of a classic rock kind of vibe going on, I hope the rest of the song has more rock in it, more ballad and slightly less country.

    Still like the voice though. Nice.

  230. good: listen to the VOICE

    IMO his voice makes those 20 seconds even more cheesy. Too nasal/whiny. Either he had the flu or he was crying.

    Same snippet. But the quality of the audio was better in the uUS Amazon…maybe just my computer… but i noticed the difference right away.

  232. For me, it’s not that the song itself is OMG wow the best movie song ever, its all about who’s singing it – and from the snippet I think I will love hearing the whole song.

  233. It’s ok girlygirl. No rocks or shoes … but watch out for fingernails. kidding. We’ll have to wait for the whole thing but ,for me for me … personally, I am quite (understatement) predisposed to loving it.

    Why does this NOT suprise me from Jim C?

  236. IMO his voice makes those 20 seconds even more cheesy. Too nasal/whiny. Either he had the flu or he was crying.

    I just love the gritty vibrato he has, especially noticable in the first phrase. Makes me happy! :grin:

  237. It sounds like an earthy, classic rock ballad – color me shocked. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the 4 minutes. I can hear in my head, the build up to some awesome. And I love all of Adam’s ballads – a sure winner for me.

  238. Just count me amongst those who are going nuts to hear this.

    ETA: Okay, I just saw the link to the snippet. Incredible voice as always. But I’m scared this is gonna be way too commercial for my taste. Then again maybe this is just a first single kind of thing. *trying to stay open-minded and patient*

  239. But from all the hype I was hoping for something more interesting/incredible than a pretty, but not very unique, soundtrack ballad.

    Hehe, it IS a soundrack ballad! :grin:

    Exactly! What else can it be? We have an “epic disaster” movie, the song must be cheesy …. that’s not the point…. it is not about the song – it is about Adam’s voice! let’s not expect the TFM to reflect on Adam’s song type/choice….again, it is about the execution! and the voice in that snippet is AMAZING! that’s all we can hope for with the TFM….

    Frog,
    sorry you do not like his voice…. then just skip the whole thing…too bad – Adam has the best voice on the scene…

  240. lmao newfan I picked him up…eventually;) buuut I live in north Virginia suburbs not Washington d.c.:D:D:D

    THE SONG IS SO FRIGGIN AMAZZZZING

  241. I’m in heaven. It IS a classic rock ballad, just like Adam said. No bubblegum crap. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  242. You peeps. The audio is encoded in a shitty 64kbps. Of course the vocals will sound slightly different because of the compression distortion.

  243. I dont like his voice regardless, But I wasnt commenting on that anyway. lol Just the song..

    Rule that I’ve developed over time for listening to post-Idol music (at least in the first two years or so of said Idol’s career):

    If you like the Idol’s voice, just concentrate very hard on it, and concentrate fiercely on *ignoring* the song that the voice is singing …. because the song will be “meh” at best. And “at best” doesn’t even come along very often.

    If you don’t like the Idol’s voice, don’t listen at all. Because the song will be “meh” at best. And you will will *not* enjoy the experience!

    I like a lot of Idol voices. But I’ve stopped waiting for one of them to be showcased early in the game with any song that I particularly like in the least! This season, to me Kris’s and Allison’s singles and Adam’s movie song (as far as I can tell from the snippet anyway) are all on the upwards side of “meh,” so I’m actually quite happy!

  244. Eric Carmen

    “All by Myself”, “Hungry Eyes”, “Make Me Lose Control”

  245. OMG! I go away for half an hour and see what happens.

    Looooooveeeeee IT!
    It ´s siiiiiiiiick!!!!!!

    Now wait until Oct. 16 – 6 days. I am listening over and over.

  246. ***squeeeeeeeeee***
    I had to force an office mate to listen (2 times) since I don’t have speakers on my office computer!
    AND gained a new Adam fan in the process!

    I had a tear in my eye – so excited and I bet the build up and apex of the song will be ammaazzing!

    Can’t wait to get home and listen again and again…

    And the Oct 20th US release is probably accurate the actual site page for TFM says ‘original’ release date 16th – so that leads to the idea they updated the date.

  248. I love the song & it’s pretty much what I hoped for & expected. Can’t wait for the entire song. Whiney & nasal? Um… no. You must be thinking of someone else.
    “Frog, sorry you do not like his voice’ ¦. then just skip the whole thing’ ¦too bad ‘“ Adam has the best voice on the scene’ ¦”
    Absolutely.

  249. More from ontd_ai, man those girls are on the ball.

    ADAM_SIGNAL ADAM’S MUSIC VIDEO: http://bit.ly/2bxtO7 LITERALLY SHAKING

    But DAMMMITTTT, they’ve locked this!! So much for Adam solidarity and love and peace and miracles.

  250. advern

    do not laugh – my plan is to go see another movie and to get into the 2012 only to hear the TFM = see the credits!

    Hmmmm…..never thought of that. That definitively works for me!!

  251. OMFG, I just can’t stop the tears….I’m sooooooo happy and LOVE the song.

  252. I LOVE the TFM snippet!! That is definitely our ADAM!!!! Now….. the Adam Storm really has begun… even if it is just a few seconds of “NEW MUSIC”!!!!

  253. If his album is mostly electronic dance music, I’ll be incredibly disappointed in Adam or whoever decided his music for him. The closest thing he should ever come to electronic music is Let’s Dance from the tour, which was damn awesome and not electronic but sounded a bit like it :P.

    This full orchestra track sounds amazing, though. I absolutely HAVE to hear it. I will die if I don’t.

    Also, am I the only one who thinks even Adam has evolved over Idol? I remember during the course of the show I thought his voice was grating and annoying because of that wail, but he perfected it into something that’s actually very good. Still kinda annoying, but really good.

    Adam’s voice has indeed continued to evolve since January. I think the being on Idol and then on tour taught him some really good things and he has used that knowledge to improve. He is not the same singer that he was during Hollywood Week.
