Adam Lambert’s New Single “Time for Miracles” – Listen to a Snippet

At long last, we finally have a tiny leak of one of Adam Lambert’s new songs: “Time For Miracles” from the 2012 Soundtrack.

Listen here at Amazon: Time For Miracles (Item 8 )

Note: Since the discussion is splintering, I thought I’d start the thread and MJ can come along and add all the bells and whistles later.

ETA: Thanks for putting up the links, Kirsten!

Judging from the 30 second snip, the song is exactly what I expected.   I mean, what’s a big budges disaster film without an over-wrought power ballad as its theme song? Heh. Good thing Adam Lambert has the vocal prowess to carry it off.

According to Amazon, the song will be available for download on October 20th, so stay tuned… (On Amazon, it has both 10/16 and 10/20 as release dates, listed on different pages, will have to double check that.)

  1. Yeah, I just posted over in headlines, it’s just… ok. Interested to hear the whole thing. But that was a pretty bland snippet. (ETA: I’m aware that snippets don’t always reflect the whole song, of course.)

  2. nice vocals but the song sounds blah.. got to listen to the whole thing before. This is for the movie isn’t it? hope so…

  3. They wanted Adam to win so badly they even gave him a coronation song. TPTB, never fail to make right what the public did wrong.

  4. It’s gonna be all over the radios whe it comes out. Its perfect, catchy, BEAUTIFUL vocals, and a true romanitc love ballad for a doomsdayish armagedeon-y movie soundtrack.
    LOVE HIS VOCALS
    i had tears in my eyes

  5. I posted this on the “orchestra” thread, but in case you don’t feel like running to Amazon, here’s the snippet and it’s also at the PF forum for when we wear our our welcome here at MJs! LOL

    ETA: Mine’s not YouTube, just a converted MP3 and hosted on my website.

  6. I love it so far – I think he sounds fantastic. It is your typical disaster movie, overcome and survive song, but I’m loving the vocals. Go Adam!

  7. I can’t tell too much from 20 seconds other than his vocal sounds phenomenal.

  8. POSTED IN THE OTHE THREAD BUT .I.FLOVE .IT.and that’s me being mean about it;)

  9. He sounds great. Definitely seems like a classic “rock ballad” a la “Don’t Want to Miss a Thing”. So, is this his first single, officially?

  10. I am loving the song. His voice sounds beautiful, as always. SING IT BABY!!

  11. All disaster films have an ‘everything will be fine’ ending song ‘“ I love what I’ve heard so far of this one.

    Me too!!!! I can actually hear his beautiful voice’ ¦it’s not over-produced at all! An ‘everything will be fine’  song would be a great choice for the AI goodbye song. Bring on the rain!

  12. OMG!!!! I think Adam sounds beautiful…PURE ADAM! I can’t wait to hear the rest of it. I think Brian May is right, it’ll be a sure hit.

  13. Uh,,, i leave for two hours and this happens? the so awaited leakage? I love him! His voice is incredible as always, rough and sweet, edgy with a smile. It is perfect fo a soundtrack cant wait to hear the whole song!

    Oct 16 FTW!!

  14. I need to hear more than a snippet to decide if I like it or not. Not liking the high pitched vocals. But to be fair, I need to hear the whole song. Does song like a coronation song though.

  15. great vocal but not impressed but thats just from the clip, hopefully the the full song will sound better.

    They wanted Adam to win so badly they even gave him a coronation song. TPTB, never fail to make right what the public did wrong.

    Right, Idol tells Roland Emerich what to do and forced him to “give” a coronation song to Adam. This is exactly the type of song for a freaking end of the world disaster movie, whether it is Adam singing or not. IDWTMAT was cheezy and sounded like a coronation song too.

  17. The song itself seems fairly cookie cutter from that tiny clip (which, I know, is too short to judge), but I like how he uses his lower range then slides up into that high note. Can’t wait to hear more.

  18. Mmmm, likey the grittiness and the switch to falsetto. Very nice! The song itself IS kind of cheezy but so was “I don’t wanna miss a thing”…

  19. Adam sounds great, the snippet of the song sounds pretty but cheesy, a typical movie soundtrack ballad. From all the hype surrounding it, I was hoping for a better actual SONG — I wasn’t worried about how Adam would sound, since, as has been said before, he can sing pretty much anything.

    Maybe the full version of the song is less cheesy. I hope so. This doesn’t sound like Oscar nomination material to me, although there have been some really cheesy songs to win Best Original Song Oscars, so who knows.

    I don’t care about that so much as I wonder what kind of airplay it will get. If the full version of the song is a big, cheesy 70ish/80ish style rock ballad, will it get a lot of radio airplay — even with Adam singing it?

  20. I really hope the full song is better. It sounds like any other mediocre movie ballad. Hopefully his real single is much better.

  21. All these threads about the same thing…oy. Don’t want to spam, but like Adam’s voice; odd country sound, wasn’t expecting, but guess Twitter girl was right (even if she doesn’t know what stubble is); like Adam’s voice a lot. Adam’s voice is pretty and better than the music, hope the rest of the song highlights that, less countryish and keep the cheese down to a dull roar, and I’ll be happy.

  22. I LOVE it and cannot WAIT to hear the whole thing. Rob Cavallo ‘“ YOU RULE for letting Adam’s voice sound like Adam.

    I can only imagine how it’s going to build and I know it will be EPIC!!

    Kill it, Adam!!

  23. “They wanted Adam to win so badly they even gave him a coronation song. TPTB, never fail to make right what the public did wrong.”

    *snickers*

  24. So, is this his first single, officially?

    no it won’t be on his album either.from what we know they’re STILL picking the first single.if there even I an album …..

    soooo the opinion from NON-ADAM fans generally seems to be gr8 vocal don’t like the song but hard to tell frm snippet

    I think that’ll be mj’s opinion too…..

    SO INCREDIBLE!!!!!

  25. IT IS ADAM.

    Adam made Want sound good, and as you’ll recall, these are the lyrics:

    Love
    Is All We Want
    It’s All That We’ll Ever Need

    I didn’t expect this to sound like RoF (his album will sound like that). It IS a coronation song, but it’s ADAM’s coronation song, I bet we will get tons of glory notes as the song crescendos…

    AND I AM FLAILING.

    Plus: I like ToML.

    ETA: I have to stop playing this. It’s been at least 10x so far. Friday FTW!!!

  26. Eh, pretty bland. Maybe the whole song’s more dynamic, though.

  27. If the Oscars do best song – this is so Oscar typical. I want a nomination and a win not just for Adam but for the writers. Their story is a sad one. Do we know if she heard Adam sing it before she died?

  28. 1st of all; Squeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Second, He sounds absolutely gorgeous. The instrumentation is very promising and the song just makes me happy.
    It is a winner in my book, Can’t wait to hear the 4.25 length of it.

    He sounds so beautiful, the snippet sounds beautiful. I’m a happy ducky tonight.

  29. “It’s gonna be all over the radios whe it comes out. Its perfect, catchy, BEAUTIFUL vocals, and a true romanitc love ballad for a doomsdayish armagedeon-y movie soundtrack.”

    hate to burst your bubble.. but im here with a giant ice pick.

  30. I love love love it.

    And as I mentioned in the previous thread, to those peeps who think his voice sounds a little whiny (WUT?!!??!), you’ve gotta understand also that the mp3 is recorded in 64kbps stereo, in other words, audio distortion and shitty sound quality.

    The song sounds so good to my ears. I can’t wait for the full version. 4:43 mins of Adam’s voice.

  31. Much mellower and more ballad-y than I was expecting, though I’m sure it builds in intensity. It’s just so refreshing to hear him sing anything new at this point. It’s been a long wait.

    If the Oscars do best song ‘“ this is so Oscar typical. I want a nomination and a win not just for Adam but for the writers. Their story is a sad one. Do we know if she heard Adam sing it before she died?

    She died in July 2008. So, sadly, no she didn’t.

  33. I LOVE it and cannot WAIT to hear the whole thing. Rob Cavallo ‘“ YOU RULE for letting Adam’s voice sound like Adam.

    I can only imagine how it’s going to build and I know it will be EPIC!!

    Kill it, Adam!!

    Yes!

  34. Summarizing my response from the other thread:

    Snippets are always hard to judge, but it’s pretty, and sounds like Adam (not over-processed), if a bit cheesy.

    I was expecting more of a rock ballad, but the snippet sounds more like a straight ballad. I imagine the song will build and hopefully get more interesting after these 20 seconds, but so far, these 20 seconds seem more AC than Top 40, radio-wise.

    Also, the song is nearly 5 minutes long, and while long songs are appropriate for movie-credits, they’re not so great for the radio. I’m conjecturing that RCA will concentrate the radio push for the first album single and rely on the movie’s promo for 2012.

    I’m not hearing the Aerosmith/Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing comparisons beyond the disaster movie thing. While both are ballads, DWMAT was really angsty and gritty, and TFM sounds really pretty and hopeful/airy/wistful. YMMV

    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.

    It’s called emotion, ya know, putting some feeling into a song.

    This is so getting played on my radio show tonight, i don’t care if it’s a snippet!

    You rule!

    I wonder if EWMichaelSlezak has weighed in yet…

  37. Do we know if she heard Adam sing it before she died?

    No, she died in July 2008. And I would be willing to bet the song isn’t eligible for an Oscar, since it was written in 2007.

    ‘It’s gonna be all over the radios whe it comes out. Its perfect, catchy, BEAUTIFUL vocals, and a true romanitc love ballad for a doomsdayish armagedeon-y movie soundtrack.’ 

    hate to burst your bubble.. but im here with a giant ice pick.

    Major Adam fan here and I don’t think it will be released to radio – if they pick it up that is another thing. IDWTMAT wasn’t released until months after Armaggedon was released and that was only due to repeated requests to radio stations.

  39. ok, delurking for a minute. TG finally a leak. I loved it, but I am a sucker for that type of song. Music often makes me cry… anyway, glad to hear something. You guys were really getting close to going over the edge. Maybe now we can hang on for another week? Going back to listen again. :)

  40. I’m in the “Yay it’s Adam’s incredible voice! but Oh Noes it’s a coronation-type song!” camp. Just hoping the album is more of the former and less of the latter, please.

    No matter how much I love an artist (and I do, Adam) and no matter how good the voice (and I think he is one of the greatest) if the music is so schmaltzy, I will not listen.

    Edit to THANK YOU MJ for the link!

  41. I don’t think it’ll get top 40 flove it but not dance-y enough.maybe his single

    IN OTHER NEWS KISTENING TO THIS AGAIN I JUST EXPLODED FROM HAPPINESS!!!!!!!!

    let the adamstorm begin!!!!!

    Much mellower and more ballad-y than I was expecting, though I’m sure it builds in intensity. It’s just so refreshing to hear him sing anything new at this point. It’s been a long wait.

    I think I remember reading that it starts out slow and then builds into more of a rock ballad, hence the 4:43 time for it.

  43. No, she died in July 2008. And I would be willing to bet the song isn’t eligible for an Oscar, since it was written in 2007.

    That would suck…

  44. From the actual half second of real music, I can’t judge shit. However it’s good to hear anything from Adam at this point. I don’t think I have enough information to decide what the entire song sounds like, or anyone’s intent in having Adam sing it. All I know for sure is that from the half second I heard was that he was singing his damn face off, so for that, thanks alot Oh Glittery One. I was beginning to think it was a dream that you were actually recording real music. Now I can have a normal weekend doing real life things instead of waiting for you to leak.

  45. I guess it’s fair to pass judgement on a 15 second clip, I mean it happens all the time. I liked what I heard. I didn’t think it sounded cheesy, in fact I was kind of surprised at the lack of cheese in the clip.

    I love how he uses his lower register and slides up into his false. It’s always such a beautiful combo.

    Adam did say when asked by Lyndsay Parker, that it has the coronation song feel to it so this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone IMO. It sounds, from what I can hear, like a classic rock ballad. Not sure I hear any country unless you mean the slight “whine” in his voice when he sings “maybe it’s time for miracles”

    I love how he sings “cuz I ain’t given up on love” so pretty. Can’t wait to hear the rest. I suspect the entire thing could leak over the weekend or early next week.

    This is so getting played on my radio show tonight, i don’t care if it’s a snippet!

    Awesome! Tell us what your listeners say!

  47. Nevermind. Totally changed my mind after the movie clip. It’s effing epic.

  48. It sounds like Adam! Strange thing to say, glad you all understand that! It hold promise for much wonderfulness!

  49. It’s exactly what I want to hear after watching all of humanity get wiped out except John Cusack and family.

  50. No, she died in July 2008. And I would be willing to bet the song isn’t eligible for an Oscar, since it was written in 2007.

    This movie has been in production for several years from what I understand, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that they wrote the song specifically for this movie before she died.

  51. who knows if they even plan on pushing this to radio? They made a video which will help promote the movie, but there is no indication there will be a big radio push with this song….i think the radio push will be with his album single, and TFM is just an extra nice bonus that will get some play on Vh1 and AC stations…that being said, i love the snippet….sounds pretty much like what i expected (altho hard to tell what song will really be like from a snippet)..softish probably building to big finish ballad, on the cheesy side, typical disaster movie fare…more publicity for Adam

  52. IDWTMAT was cheezy and sounded like a coronation song too.

    IDWTMAT came straight out of the Dianne Warren cheese factory and ‘My Heart Will Go On’ was assembled at a similar cheese making facility.

  53. I love how he uses his lower register and slides up into his false. It’s always such a beautiful combo.

    Loved this too. After listening to it a million times I think it will probably be a very emotional song if put together with visuals from the movie. I think the music video will make impact (like the DWWMAT song). I too don’t think it will be released to radio.

  54. Well Jim C was all over Kris’s snippet and he’s not all over Adam’s snippet. Who Knew??

    At least Adam fans can enjoy a weekend, because we finally got something. The snippet sounds like Adam and I’m sure the song is going to be epic. Has Adam ever let us down. His voice is always gorgeous.

    Whoever had the ice pick to burst our bubble…..well, all I can say is have a nice weekend!!!!!!

  55. I LOVE it and cannot WAIT to hear the whole thing. Rob Cavallo ‘“ YOU RULE for letting Adam’s voice sound like Adam.

    I am happy that cavallo produced seven tracks submitted for adam’s album. They will sure be more rockish and less electro, and more clean vocally

  56. Well Jim C was all over Kris’s snippet and he’s not all over Adam’s snippet. Who Knew??

    Shock and awe….at least he didn’t say it sucked.

  57. no, I don’t think this will be released to radio, unless it’s released strictly to AC because RCA won’t want two adam songs competing for spins and their priority isn’t the soundtrack song but rather his debut single (which hopefully will also leak next week, please and thank you @god)!

  58. This movie has been in production for several years from what I understand, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that they wrote the song specifically for this movie before she died.

    It pretty much is outside the realm of possibility, given that the script wasn’t even shopped around to the studios until Feb. 2008. Wikipedia:

    Director Roland Emmerich and composer-producer Harald Kloser co-wrote a spec script titled 2012, which was marketed to major studios in February 2008. Nearly all studios met with Emmerich and his representatives to hear the director’s budget projection and story plans, a process that the director had previously gone through with the films Independence Day (1996) and The Day After Tomorrow (2004). The film was shopped around with a production budget of $200 million. Later that month, Sony Pictures Entertainment won the rights for the spec script, planning to distribute it under Columbia Pictures. The studio planned to make the film for less than the estimated budget.

  59. I think its a bit premature to make blanket statements about this song on a 15 second clip…
    To me it’s Adam’s voice and it sounds awesome like always…

  60. Reprint from the other thread, I did not see the new thread in time…

    ***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.

  61. Academy Award time…and the winner of best song for a film is……

  62. Jim Cantiello doesn’t seem that unenthusiastic…he loves the chorus

    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!
    41 minutes ago from UberTwitter

  63. I like what I hear, cant wait to hear the rest, I know its gonna be great, so hard to get the feel of the whole song with that small bit. How exciting they released a bit, where was it released first, on the Amazon site?? OT, there’s a big production on TV right now as they are setting up the U2 concert in the Tampa stadium, the only concert in Fla, gonna be a big deal. Maybe Adam, in a year or two??

  64. And I would be willing to bet the song isn’t eligible for an Oscar, since it was written in 2007.

    It’s being released and is the title track from the movie being released in 2009 so yes, it is eligible.

  65. Well I will say that I liked it more on the US site than from the UK one, or maybe it was just from hearing it more than once, because I did like it more on repeated plays. Hmm. Wasn’t expecting that, but that’s nice.

    But still I kind of go ‘ugh,’ at the beginning due to it’s cheese/blandy/generic sound/instrumentation.

    Oh and I do keep wanting to hear the whole thing, so that’s also a good sign.

    So about what I expected, not stellar, better with repeating and think that the whole song will be pretty/classic rock/ballady stuff. But yes, coronation type vibe to it.

    Oh and not at all Oscar caliber, imho. Like at all. The movie will be horrible, I expect a box office bomb and I don’t think this song is good enough to overcome that.

  66. Love his voice. He sounds like Adam and I am happy :-)

    #timeformiracles in Twitter

  67. Cheesy seems to be the popular word here about this. And it may very well turn out to be incredibly cheesy. Many rock ballads are, IMO. But I don’t hear a lot of cheese in this small snippet. Can’t make any judgment about the content of a >4 minute song based on less than 20 secs. But the vocal, on this little clip, is gorgeous and pure Adam.

  68. I can’t wait to hear the entire song. Just as in “Is Anybody Listening”,
    when Adam sings a song it builds to a point that you are completely blown away.

    I believe it will and damn you October 16th………I want it now!!!!!

  69. no, not KRIS ALLEN!!! and i love Kris Allen

    Wait! Is this a quote from Jim C??

  70. It pretty much is outside the realm of possibility, given that the script wasn’t even shopped around to the studios until Feb. 2008. Wikipedia:

    Wiki isn’t never a source I quote as an authority buy okay. seems Time for miracles is a apt song for this movie if the director didn’t even get the script until Feb 2008, the movie was cast, shot and all post production FX was completed within a year and a half… That’s pretty damn impressive IMO.

    Btw, the director getting the script doesn’t mean that the song couldn’t have been commissioned prior to that so I wouldn’t outright discount the possibility of this song being up for Oscar contention in the near future. not saying it’ll happen just saying shouldn’t be dismissed outright because you never really know what goes on behind the scenes.

    Oh and not at all Oscar caliber, imho. Like at all. The movie will be horrible, I expect a box office bomb and I don’t think this song is good enough to overcome that.

    Not debating you on this point just curious how you can tell that from 15 seconds? I doubt seriously if anyone would’ve thought My Heart Will Go On was oscar caliber based on 15 seconds

  71. Adam did say when asked by Lyndsay Parker, that it has the coronation song feel to it so this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone IMO. It sounds, from what I can hear, like a classic rock ballad. Not sure I hear any country unless you mean the slight ‘whine’  in his voice when he sings ‘maybe it’s time for miracles’ 

    I can hear country influence in the guitar at the beginning of the clip, it almost sounds like classic steel guitar. I am not sure how much of that will be in the total song but I like the nod.

  72. Well I will say that I liked it more on the US site than from the UK one, or maybe it was just from hearing it more than once, because I did like it more on repeated plays. Hmm. Wasn’t expecting that, but that’s nice.

    But still I kind of go ‘ugh,’ at the beginning due to it’s cheese/blandy/generic sound/instrumentation.

    Ok, I am guilty of this too. Actually digging it, but mostly because of the edgy (to me) vocals. I like the phrasing and the switch to falsetto that is so smooth. The instrumentation is a bit cheezy and I think it was a wise decision to have Adam sing it, since he has a more edgy voice (imo). Though we have to remember this is a very LQ snippet and the full instrumentation can probably not be heard.

  73. I will be able to sleep tonight.

    …Maybe it ´s time for miracles!!!!

  74. I guess it’s fair to pass judgement on a 15 second clip, I mean it happens all the time. I liked what I heard. I didn’t think it sounded cheesy, in fact I was kind of surprised at the lack of cheese in the clip.

    Thank you, wiredforsound!! Beautifully said.

    BTW, of COURSE it’s going to be released for the radio. Why would they shoot a music video and already have it on Amazon as a SINGLE? No. Brainer.

  75. It’s being released and is the title track from the movie being released in 2009 so yes, it is eligible.

    Nope, it has to be written for the film. Academy rule:

    An original song consists of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the motion picture. There must be a clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition (not necessarily visually presented) of both lyric and melody, used in the body of the motion picture or as the first music cue in the end credits.

  76. Ummm, I am a huge, huge, HUGE Adam fan, but there is no way in hell that a song from 2012 is being nominated for an Oscar, no matter who sings it (well, maybe if Obama sang it…)…If I am wrong I will eat my left arm

  77. Thank God – finally SOMETHING! This is DEFINITELY a movie song – but his vocals are absolutely lovely and I think that for what it is, it is going to be great!

    ETA: Where is MJ??

  78. It sounds exactly like I was expecting a song for the 2012 movie to sound like. I can’t believe how happy it made me to hear his voice singing something new and I’m looking forward to the whole song. Based on this I think I’m going to like it and hope it really does have an arc to the sound like Adam said. It’s completely different from what I expect of his album and I can’t wait to find out if his album sounds like I’m expecting. For those that said it seemed cheesy….all I can say is: duh, it’s for the ending of an apocalypse flick.

  79. CHEESE! Blue Cheese is my favorite. It has little sparkles in it! Luv TFM!!!! Blue Cheese and all!!!!!!!

  80. bringing over my post from the headlines:

    We got exactly what we were told we’d be getting ‘“ a ROCK ballad. Not pop, ROCK. If you were expecting bouncy music for a disaster movie, no wonder you are disappointed.

  81. It’s been on repeat on my ITunes for the past 5 minutes now, and I have no intention of stopping it any time soon.

    It get’s more beautiful with every listen.

    Can’t wait for the song, can’t wait fir the video.

    Happy days.

  82. Ummm, I am a huge, huge, HUGE Adam fan, but there is no way in hell that a song from 2012 is being nominated for an Oscar, no matter who sings it (well, maybe if Obama sang it’ ¦)’ ¦If I am wrong I will eat my left arm

    are you right handed? LOL.

    No, I doubt it will be nominated but I wouldn’t dismiss it out of hand 1) before hearing the entire thing and 2) before seeing how it fits in with the movie and how the movie does at the box office. Keeping in mind some real crap songs get nominated for Oscars by far inferior singers.

  83. I LOVE TIME FOR MIRACLES. IT IS BEAUTIFUL. I CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR ALL OF IT. THANKS FOR RELEASING THIS. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.

  84. Ummm, I am a huge, huge, HUGE Adam fan, but there is no way in hell that a song from 2012 is being nominated for an Oscar, no matter who sings it (well, maybe if Obama sang it’ ¦)’ ¦If I am wrong I will eat my left arm

    ya I think that too.expect add a few more huge’s before fan lol .

    I waited like an hour and listened to it again -still THINK IT IS AWESOME!!!!

  85. And as far as the drop dates – I thought I posted this but can’t find it –

    The way I read Amazon is that the 16th is the SINGLE date and the 20th is the ALBUM date.

    Does Amazon drop singles?

  86. Well Jim C was all over Kris’s snippet and he’s not all over Adam’s snippet. Who Knew??

    this is not Adam’s first single just a snippet of a movie song .. let’s see what happen with the real Adam stuff :)

  87. Nope, it has to be written for the film. Academy rule:

    Lol.
    Look into the history of Falling Slowly. Rules are made to be bent whenever the Academy wants to bend them.

  88. It’s gonna be all over the radios whe it comes out. Its perfect, catchy, BEAUTIFUL vocals, and a true romanitc love ballad for a doomsdayish armagedeon-y movie soundtrack.
    LOVE HIS VOCALS

    I agree! If you connect the song to the movie, I think it’s a perferct ballad for a doomsday movie… beautiful vocal …

  89. wiredforsound — ya got me! But I think they changed the rules for best original song to keep out a lot of the schlock that had been nominated in the past. Last year only 3 songs were nominated (2 from Slumdog and the Peter Gabriel song from Wall-E — couldn’t believe Springsteen’s song for the Wrestler was shut out)… so they don’t have to fill 5 nomination spots anymore…nothing is impossible, but i think it is highly unlikely

  90. when will it be released on iTunes?

    trying SOOOO hard not to downloa the mp3 illegally….

    It’s been on repeat on my ITunes for the past 5 minutes now, and I have no intention of stopping it any time soon.

    It get’s more beautiful with every listen.

    Ditto. It really makes me happy hear his gorgeous voice on this.

  92. Lol.
    Look into the history of Falling Slowly. Rules are made to be bent whenever the Academy wants to bend them.

    I agree I think a few songs in history of the Oscars may have been in a file folder before making it to a soundtrack.

    The more I listen to this snippet, the more I like it and want more.

    Uh,,, i leave for two hours and this happens? the so awaited leakage? I love him! His voice is incredible as always, rough and sweet, edgy with a smile. It is perfect fo a soundtrack cant wait to hear the whole song!

    I knoooow right! I sit down and watch a frigging movie for two hours because I was incredibly bored – and the song leaks!?! Uh,,, maybe I should start watching more movies; when do you guys want the next leak?

    I’m so happy to hear something new from him. I really like the vocal but would like to hear the rest of the song before passing judgment. But so far, I like :lol:

  94. Adam’s vocals are INCREDIBLE!!! I can see why Brian May was so excited about this. I’ve only listed to it three times — going to go back and listen again, and again.

    ETA: What do you expect from Cantiello? He only has eyes and ears for Kris.

  95. I really like it. His singing is so beautiful. I can’t wait to hear the whole thing. It’s such a treat getting to hear something new from him.

  96. Uh,,, maybe I should start watching more movies; when do you guys want the next leak?

    yesterday

  97. What do you expect from Cantiello? He only has eyes and ears for Kris.

    I’m surprised he even listened to it honestly. Someone in the office must have had it on repeat or something…..

  98. Squeeeeeee!!!!!! A snippet! It had to happen one of these days, and we finally got a snippet!!!!!! (Exclamation points courtesy of Adam.)

    Sounds like it would fit in with the movie, (uplifting song as the credits roll), and Adam’s voice sounds great! I admit to loving me some cheese, and while this is probably cheesy, (we’ll know when the full version is released how cheesy it is), I think that it will do well,,,,,and Adam makes it sound beautiful!

  99. Lol.
    Look into the history of Falling Slowly. Rules are made to be bent whenever the Academy wants to bend them.

    I have! And that bolsters my belief that it will be deemed ineligible, since the Academy did a thorough investigation to determine that “Falling Slowly” was indeed written for the film. They did not bend the rule.

  100. All I can say is:

    SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE !!!

  101. hate to burst your bubble.. but im here with a giant ice pick.

    Oh so you’re the one who let it be known there was no Santa… ;-) J/K

  102. ETA: What do you expect from Cantiello? He only has eyes and ears for Kris.

    Yup. There’s a reason why Kris’ songs were leaked to Jim and Slezak and Adam’s weren’t. Think about it.

  103. My first listen was a bit “eh??”

    But the more I listen, the more I like it. Adam’s vocals are insane, but that’s to be expected. However, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that the actual song may turn out well too.

    ETA: My guess is, it’ll be around for more than 800…. seconds?

  104. It’s been on repeat on my ITunes

    Can someone tell me where I can get the snippet for my own?? Thanks :)

  105. Finally a snippet!!!Yayyyyyyyyyyy!

    Its exactly as Adam described it from the little I’ve heard and fits in with what I expected…It’s a disaster movie soundtrack…….duh!

    His vocals are as usual amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!

  106. Love it!!1 Love his vocals, and I can’t wait for the whole thing!

  107. Yup. There’s a reason why Kris’ songs were leaked to Jim and Slezak and Adam’s weren’t. Think about it.

    I don’t think it matters much what they think of the song or coming songs. Hopefully we’ll like them! :grin:

  108. and TFM is suddenly available?? just like that? Adam didn’t even tweet it. No promotion either.

    But nevertheless, squeEEEEEEE~~~~

  109. regi
    October 9, 2009 at 5:22 pm
    SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE,,,,THAT IS ALL.

    Uh,,,beautifully worded, regi. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  110. I gave some time and listened to it agan, and yeah, I love his recording voice, its so smooth! His lve performances are great, but totally different type of great. SQUEEEE! We waited so much… I am sure the adamstorm is coming and, uh,,, we can wait for GREAT stuff

  111. I was on here all day, stepped away for a bit, and come back to all of this!!! Yay! I absolutely love it and can’t wait until the 16th. I really don’t think it’s cheesy-sounding at all, based on the tiny bit we get to hear. It’s beautiful, powerful, and crystal clear Adam. SQUEEEEEEEEEEE…

  112. Uh,,, maybe I should start watching more movies; when do you guys want the next leak?

    yesterday

    I like your thinking, luv.

    No, this is NOT going to sound electro/techno/pop/rock. (But MW doesn’t, either, and how much do I lurrrrve MW?!) From the FIFTEEN SECOND SNIPPET, I GET:

    That it sounds like Adam
    That he uses lower and higher register

    I expect a crescendo. I expect glory notes. I expect to love it. I don’t care. IT IS NEW ADAM MUSIC.

    Oh, God, wait till the video…

    /falling down

  113. The more I listen I love it and a snippet of Adams song is released and the whole World goes Mad!! Get?? Mad World!!!!! HEHE

  114. Gee… we finally have at least something to listen to from Adam… yet the torture of waiting for the single and the complete version of TFM. His voice sounds amazing. ;-)

  115. I posted in the other thread that I thought the song had a little Beatles feeling to it, something about the chord progression used. I have been playing a lot of Beatles lately so I might just be hearing things.

  116. 141 comments based on a FIFTEEN SECOND SNIPPET!

    Adam, yer fans are waiting for more…

    ETA: Yep, I hear some “All You Need is Love” in it…

  117. ok guys this is what Brian may thinks.I agree(lol).thoughts??????

    And I was privileged to hear a track that the guys have finished for Adam Lambert ‘ ¦ a song for a forthcoming film, 2012. I have to say I was completely blown away ‘ ¦ it’s truly sensational. In fact it’s so obviously a number one smash, any bookie would be mad to take bets on it. I am not kidding. I’m not easily moved to jelly by male vocalists ‘ ¦ but Adam’s voice reaches out with sensitivity, depth, maturity, and awesome range and power which will make jaws drop all around the world. Its an awesome performance. No doubt about it. The world of Rock has a bright new star.

  118. I listen to the snipet over and over and everytime gives me chill. IDK, but I think I hear full string orchestra in it.. maybe he was finishing TFM last night or they added full string orchestra to this music. The full 3 – 4 minutes song of TFM with full string orchestra will sound… GRAND.. maybe I’m imagining thing but I can feel it.

    Better link, with cover art:

    Amazon snippet

    Large cover art

    Thanks hwc.

    That high note where Adam goes into his falsetto takes my breath away. It feels like the song has a crescendo build in it, I can’t wait to hear the whole thing. His vocals alone are spellbinding.

    To those saying the song is too long for radio. There are usually radio edits for songs over 4 mins long, which means there might very well be two version of TFM. Yaaaaaay!

  120. I get a Bryan Adam’s sort of Vibe. Like Everything I do I do it for you or Heaven. Cheesy songs but which went to number 1.

  121. Gorgeous voice as always so no surprise there. However, I find the song difficult to judge based on a 30-second clip.

  122. This sounds exactly like I expected. Adam’s voice is amazing and the song is classic rock cheese. Awesome!

  123. 15 seconds is not enough, more please!

    some are commenting that 15 seconds sounds coronationish but if you take any random 15 seconds from a song with the title words in the line of lyrics, especially not the chorus, and they sound slower and wistful and we all knew Time for Miracles was ripe for rainbows and unicorns.
    I want to hear the full song including the chorus and the build up.

    But he does sound in good voice and very Adam.

  124. “Baby you know that maybe its #timeformiracles” is trending on twitter already.

  125. I, for one, like cheese. Love it, in fact. All kinds. If this song is cheese, then I say “Adam, bring it on!!”

  126. Having seen how Idols’ songs turn out, I was reaaaaaallly wary, but this listens like a big time winner! So glad he gets to play with his voice!

  127. It’s not what I expected but it’s still not bad. Still excited for the album though.

  128. I understand why Brian May liked this so much. He could have written every note. It truly reminds me of the kind of music Queen used to make (a la ‘Highlander’).

    Cool beans.

  129. So my question is, why are all of you only listening to 1/2 of the clip? Cuz clearly mine is 30 seconds. lol

    And you call yourselves fans… ;-P

    Thanks for the heads up Kirsten and MJ!

  130. Uh,,, i leave for two hours and this happens? the so awaited leakage?

    LOL. I know. Same here. Thats when everything happens!

  131. yesterday

    Sorry to disappoint you luv but I’m no glittery alien – I don’t do time travel. Although here it’s almost tomorrow – does that count ;)?

  132. It’s exactly what I expected. An overwrought power ballad. It’s very typical for a movie soundtrack, particularly for a big budget disaster film.

    I’ll probably like the tunes on his album better…

  133. I wish they’d added a gritty guitar solo a la Slash, love that in combination with cheezy ballads. Not really a string orchestra kind of girl.

  134. Uh,,, ADAM YOU DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!!! I loved it the first time I heard the snippit. Now after my tenth time, I EFFEN LOVE it. His vocals really do make this astounding.

  135. It sounds like a perfect counterpoint to anyone who may not be crazy about a potential electronica-like dance track for the album single. Big, soaring, crescendoed (is that a word??) vocals like ONLY our boy can do…..

  136. Sunn

    October 9, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    It’s been on repeat on my ITunes for the past 5 minutes now, and I have no intention of stopping it any time soon.

    It get’s more beautiful with every listen.

    Can’t wait for the song, can’t wait fir the video.

    Happy days.

    Exactly what I am doing. Only it’s been on my itunes for 10min non stop!!!

    Ok maybe it is not eligible for an Oscar…..Do I hear Grammy….(Yep, Had to go there)

  137. I REALLY love the snippet on the video at AOL – you get the power notes at the end followed by one of those nice gentle ending notes.

  138. Not really feeling it. But, you can’t tell much from these snippets. I’ll reserve judgment until the full song is available. So far… meh…

    ETA: after watching the video – definitely not feeling it. Power notes? NIMO, it’s more like shrieking to me. My husband asked what the hell I was listening to… :lol: Hopefully Adam doesn’t shriek on his post-Idol album or I’ll have to pass on that too. Just keep the vocals nice like MW. YMMV.

  139. Trending at #9. I expect to go to #1 by the end of the evening.

    No word from Slezak or Lyndsey. Maybe Lyndsey is too tired from partying with Blake last night. ;)

    THANK GOD SOME LEAKAGE. The Adam threads were getting repetitive, lol (And they use the “jacket” on the youtube clip. You know. The one that EVERYONE but me and two others love. Oh, well. No Elvis!hair.)

  140. Sorry to disappoint you luv but I’m no glittery alien ‘“ I don’t do time travel

    awwwwww:( lol

    YAY MJ’s BACK!!!!!

    aaaand….doesn’t like it…..:/

    ok whatevs:)

    yay tfm is trending!!!!

    CAN SOME1 PLZ PL PLZ PLZZZZZ POST THE AOL VIDEO ON YOUTUBE???!!!

    PLZZZZZZZZzzz

  141. Looking at the movie snippet, that must have been so fun for him to sing! Full throttle!

  142. ACKK! So – I had to work this afternoon, have to run out now — and THIS is when I get Adam song leak!! ACKK! Totally dying right now!!

    Sounds vaguely country, interesting. And Adam voice is so freaking hot that this is made of win! I don’t care how cheeserific it might be. AHHH!!

  143. OH!! Lots of glory notes in the video clip (plus: bonus Adam!).

    Where was this during the ROAD BLOCK!!!

    *still flailing*

  144. Fantastic vocals ! Adam is such a great singer .
    A new song at last, even if just a snippet .

    Whether it deserves an Oscar, will probably have to wait until the movie comes out and see how it works with it. I thought Best Song had something to do with the song enhancing the message or storey of the movie.

    Why does it matter what Cantiello thinks ? Did his opinion increase sales for Kris single thus his endorsement is important ? Just wondering why it seems important to get his endorsement. I would be eager to read what Ann Powers has to say though . She always gives the rationale and background of her comments.

    Anyway – I like and love what I hear of it and it’s going to be a great song. Though have to wait for October 20 to be able to get it . Patience, patience again… patience. But I’m a happy camper.

  145. Ok, having watched the vid snippet, I see it all come into focus. This works, bigtime.

  146. omg…breathe in breathe out… the music in the video is even better EPIC!!!

  147. http://video.aol.com/video-detail/2012-ada‘ ¦ideo/2783600126

    a short clip of the music video!!!!

    OMG that clip!! I mean really OMG! It gives you an even better and bigger idea of what the song sounds like and it’s HUGE! It’s NOT a corny cheesy ballad, it’s a ROCK BALLAD just like Adam said it was!

    Uh,,, ADAM YOU DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!!! I loved it the first time I heard the snippit. Now after my tenth time, I EFFEN LOVE it. His vocals really do make this astounding.

    I love it too! even more now that I’ve seen the clip of him in studio! just stunning!

  148. I expect a crescendo. I expect glory notes. I expect to love it. I don’t care. IT IS NEW ADAM MUSIC.

    Oh, God, wait till the video’ ¦

    /falling down

    I think you’ll get all that on this one……..and the video will be sickkkkkkk!!

    However sheesy it apns out to be, I’ll eat those power vocals on garlic bread, with a bottle of chianti! So bring it, fuckers!

  149. I expect a crescendo. I expect glory notes. I expect to love it. I don’t care. IT IS NEW ADAM MUSIC.

    However cheesy it pans out to be, I’ll eat those power vocals on garlic bread, with a bottle of chianti! So bring it, fuckers!

  150. Ok that just made me want to see the movie – they really need to televise that as the trailer.

  151. When you hear the song with the video with all those glory notes….I do think it will be nominated for an oscar.

  152. i’m literally shaking~~~the freaking good. I can’t wait to hear the whole song and the VIDEO~~~~

  153. The video clip is much better, we get 2 glory notes, you really get a better the feel for the song. It’s awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  154. the video really gves a better idea. I embraced the cheese, it is great! And in the video adam’s voice quality is even clearer.

  155. What a great way to start the weekend! Cheers to Adam fans and to everyone who loves an inspirational rock ballad!! *raise my vodka martini to clink with yours*

    So glad there is fianly new AL music for us to enjoy, even if it’s only a snippet today. Remember, when Kris’ and Alli’s snippets came out, many of us weren’t sure we liked them, but when the whole song was available, we mostly did! Snippet quality is pitiful, as are those of us who have it on repeat. ;-)

    We have yet to hear a bad review from anyone who has heard the whole TFM song. I trust Brian May’s judgement about what makes a #1 song since he’s had a few here and there and I trust Adam Lambert’s musical skills and smarts – both proven commodities. Adam can make Velveeta sound like Brie.

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see this song become a ~~~holiday classic~~~. yeh I said it

  156. http://video.aol.com/video-detail/2012-ada‘ ¦ideo/2783600126

    a short clip of the music video!!!!

    The video clip is much better, we get 2 glory notes, you really get a better the feel for the song. It’s awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OMG.. OMG.. OMG.. OMG.. OMG.. his voice in the video clip is sooooooooooooooooo much better and more power… and that high notes at the end.. gave me goosebumps .. HOWLEY MOLY

  157. a short clip of the music video!!!!

    Wow, I’m getting goose bumps listening to Adam’s singing with this clip. Much better than the initial snippet,,,,his voice is just soooooooo amazing.
    I’ll be buying the song for sure. Won’t go see the movie,,,but will buy the song. Got to go listen to the video clip again — glory notes!!
    Squeeeeee!!

    OK, emo hair. No whips, boas or bras, but will there be a “woman” or “baby”??

    ETA: Oh, yeah — we got glory notes!!!!! (video clip)

  158. However cheesy it pans out to be, I’ll eat those power vocals on garlic bread, with a bottle of chianti! So bring it, fuckers!

    Uh,,,I’ll submerse myself in a freakin’ cheese fondue with ya!!!!!

  159. Youtube of TFM making of Video.

    Youtube load failed. Terraj is reloading.

    Stand by. Ignore previous link.

  160. Well it’s got a great earwormy hook, that’s for sure. I only listened to the audio clip once and the video clip once, and MAYBE IT TIIIIME FOR MIRACLES has gotten stuck in my head real good.

  161. I’m gonna live like I’m dying and jump into the fondue pot with y’all!

  162. Uh,,,I’ll submerse myself in a freakin’ cheese fondue with ya!!!!!

    Let’s do it……I might even break out some crackers to go with it

  163. I expect a crescendo. I expect glory notes. I expect to love it. I don’t care.

    IT IS NEW ADAM MUSIC.

    Oh, God, wait till the video’ ¦

    /falling down

    I think you’ll get all that on this one’ ¦’ ¦..and the video will be sickkkkkkk!!

    However cheesy it pans out to be, I’ll eat those power vocals on garlic bread, with a bottle of chianti! So bring it, fuckers!

    Loving you. Loving everything about you.

    And please remind me, who EVER thought an end-of-the-world disaster movie was ever going to end with some light-hearted ditty? I mean, are we all new here? Genres are genres for a reason ‘“ they have a formula. Those who work in that genre understand it and give the public what they want. Just as sure as a classic western ends with a gunfight and has a hooker with a heart of gold, an epic disaster movie is going to have a rock-anthemy emotional power ballad.

    If you bought the latest Dan Brown novel and didn’t get ancient cryptology and symbology with some good intrigue and chase scenes mixed in, you’re going to be disappointed.

    Emmerich is the Master of Disaster. He knows what works within the confines of that genre and you know he’s going to squeeze every drop of drama out of it.

  164. What a great way to start the weekend! Cheers to Adam fans and to everyone who loves an inspirational rock ballad!! *raise my vodka martini to clink with yours*

    Join you with a vodka martini!

    Cheers!!!

  165. I know I’m going to cry when I hear Adam sing the entire song with the music video. This snippet really grabs you.

    BestAI, me too.. I think I’m gonna cry when I hear the whole song with the music video.. just watching the video clip I almost cried.. Now I understand what Brian May said about Adam’s voice in this SONG… OMG…

  166. Sounds like he’s doing his own background vocals – double WIN!!!!!

  167. I’m gonna live like I’m dying and jump into the fondue pot with y’all!

    We can make dips!And drown ourselves in cheese like we’re dying…but actually going…Fuck yeah!!!!!!!!!!!

  168. This is just too amazing. I’m in tears. His vocals are incredible. The notes he hits are unreal.

  169. ICK! Cheese Louise! Over-wrought is right! I think this is worse than the No Boundaries song. If not, at least just as bad! Kara, is that you breaking out your writer’s pen again?! Awful, awful song.

  170. BTW, ‘Miracles’  is misspelled in the headline ‘“ just sayin” ¦

    That’s Kirsten trying to get the snip up quickly for you all. I’m not complaining. See, she fixed it.

  171. And please remind me, who EVER thought an end-of-the-world disaster movie was ever going to end with some light-hearted ditty? I mean, are we all new here? Genres are genres for a reason ‘“ they have a formula.

    Uh,,,YES, SusanM!! Loving YOU right now!

  172. I just love the video. And when the song ends, the credits come up featuring Adam Lambert! *sigh*

  173. Guys ignore the link I posted ubove for Youtube vid. Loading failed, and terraj is reloading now. I will post link when available.

  174. We can make dips!And drown ourselves in cheese like we’re dying’ ¦but actually going’ ¦Fuck yeah!!!!!!!!!!!

    Uh,,,GO Chipmunk!!!! We’ll bring the cheese and crackers, let the haters bring the “whine”!

  175. Now I understand what Brian May said about Adam’s voice in this SONG’ ¦ OMG’ ¦

    exactly! uh,,, he is too amazing for my poor heart. I watched the clip and though of May all the time.

  176. I can’t stop watching the clip. The epicness of actually seeing Adam in the studio recording this coupled with those BIG notes and amazing vocals is just too addicting.

    I’m really really impressed!

  177. OMG! The vocals on the video are stunning!!! I can’t stop listening to it!

  178. Can I just say in the video he looks yummy!

    great snippits and vids – all is OK for the Weekend

  179. OK, I really cannot get anything done now unless I smash my computer. I just can’t stop listening/watching to that snippet/video.

  180. Shit, shit, shit, oh shit…… Shoot, I want it now. Right now, that convinced me. He’s awesome, this movie may indeed suck, but I will be humming this damn song possibly into 2012! It’s a keeper, he’s a keeper. I don’t flail. But I could contemplate the thought….I got some wheat thins and military special Canadian Whisky….sounds like a paarty to me!

  181. Oh Wow ‘“ the soaring vocals and the video clip makes your heart stop ‘ ¦ your pulse slows down and its hard to breathe. Beyond goosebumps ! Oh Wow.

    Yes!!! The video combined with the soaring vocals is just epic! If I’m this happy with a few scant seconds of music, I fear for my sanity when an actual WHOLE SONG gets released….

  182. MJ, can you update and add the video in the thread header- twould be nice to save for posterity. Thanx

  183. And please remind me, who EVER thought an end-of-the-world disaster movie was ever going to end with some light-hearted ditty? I mean, are we all new here?

Just as sure as a classic western ends with a gunfight and has a hooker with a heart of gold, an epic disaster movie is going to have a rock-anthemy emotional power ballad.

    Exactly!!!!! No surprises here, except I’ve got a new Lambert song after all that drought, he got to work with some big names on it, and there’s a fvcking video to boot……Win win

  184. However cheesy it pans out to be, I’ll eat those power vocals on garlic bread, with a bottle of chianti! So bring it, fuckers!

    Thank you for that. It made my day.

  185. I have been off work for over an hour but do not want to leave my desk because I can’t stop watching this video clip! WTAF is wrong with me? Adam you have invaded my brain and I want to say THANK YOU!

  186. OK, I really cannot get anything done now unless I smash my computer. I just can’t stop listening/watching to that snippet/video. video.

    I’ve got the same problem, BestAI. Only, if I smashed my computer so I could step away, I’d be rushing to the store to buy a new computer so I could start listening again,,,,and I’d be going through withdrawal until I had the new computer.

    What a voice!!!! I can understand that the song might be too cheesy for some, (but I think I’m going to melt cheese on my entire dinner tonight — cheese is good!), but that voice is just astounding.

    *thud*

  187. Where’s halfie when we need him – he needs to twitter Jim C. with the vidoe clip. Jim C will change his mind real quick.

    Lyndsey where are you?- video clip – falling down on the job.

    It’s exactly what I expected. An overwrought power ballad. It’s very typical for a movie soundtrack, particularly for a big budget disaster film.
    I’ll probably like the tunes on his album better’ ¦

    DITTZ. BUT, I’ll reserve final judgement ’til the full version is available. The quality of the final is sure to be much better (this is sampled at only 128Kbs). ALSO, this must be looked at in the intended context, and not as his personal vision. Wuz a great gig, FoSho.

  189. Yes!!! The video combined with the soaring vocals is just epic! If I’m this happy with a few scant seconds of music, I fear for my sanity when an actual WHOLE SONG gets released’ ¦.

    They’ll be locking me up with you. LOL. I can’t believe how happy this snippet has made me. That video clip is just astounding — his voice is sooooo amazing.

  190. I’ve never gotten choked up over a song in my entire life, but with this video I did and it’s because of Adam. I’m so very proud of him right now. I think the song is going to be epic.

  191. From everything I’ve seen and read, this movie is one hot piece of lame, but Adam sounds incredible. I’ll pay my $8.75 for that alone.

  192. From everything I’ve seen and read, this movie is one hot piece of lame, but Adam sounds incredible. I’ll pay my $8.75 for that alone

    Well, one can always buy the single!

  193. The movie will make millions worldwide – who cares if it’s cheesy – blockbuster doom and gloom always make money. People worldwide crave these types of movies.

  194. Adam’s voice sounds amazing. I can’t believe how much I love hearing him sing! I love the AOL snippet where you get to hear the ending of the song and the power vocals.

    I am reminded again about why I fell in love with that voice in the first place and why I can’t get enough of it.

  195. However cheesy it pans out to be, I’ll eat those power vocals on garlic bread, with a bottle of chianti! So bring it, fuckers!

    Thank you for that. It made my day.

    LOL Mine too! Thank You~

  196. I am in heaven right now. Adam sounds like Adam. Beautiful voice, power notes, he’s got a voice like no one else. You hear it and you instantly know it’s him. It’s only a snippet, but it sounds indelibly Adam. I am mesmerized by his voice, I started this journey as an Adam fan with Bohemian Rhapsody where he had me in an instant and still has not let go. There is no one else like him. That is all.

  197. From everything I’ve seen and read, this movie is one hot piece of lame, but Adam sounds incredible. I’ll pay my $8.75 for that alone

    $12.50 here in Manhattan

  198. Well, at least 20 times watching the video clip – I can’t wait for the full song -it is going to be epic!!!!!!!!!

  199. I am in heaven right now. Adam sounds like Adam. Beautiful voice, power notes, he’s got a voice like no one else. You hear it and you instantly know it’s him.

    CindyM I second your thought and feelings.

  200. what the hell was i thinking running errands! i missed the first clap of thunder!

    love love love it. i have a high tolerance for cheese, especially when partnered with such a refined, robust and BEEYOOTEEFULLL wine vocal.

    OH HAPPY DAY!

  201. I love it —

    And they didn’t bury his voice under heavy production or synth it up!

    Now, I just need the whole song!

  202. CindyM: That is all.

    Uh,,,no, it’s not. It’s only the beginning, baby. Buckle your belt, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride…..

  203. Just got online for the day – haven’t read anything but this headline and watched the 2012 clip and listened to TFM snippet -LOVE LOVE LOVE it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  204. From Slezak’s semi-reivew:

    (For the record, a rep for Adam’s label says ‘Time for Miracles’  won’t be the lead single from Adam’s forthcoming debut disc; a decision on which track they’ll ultimately choose will be made in the next couple of weeks.)

    I sure hope he has that wrong — because that puts the album single coming out in 2 weeks!

  205. His voice sounds awesome! I love when he slides into that higher range. Beautiful.

  206. I like Gouda, Brie, Provolone, Swiss, Cheddar and I LOVE TFM!! All I need is some wine and I’m good to go.

    This was more than worth the wait.

  207. A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, some Adam …. what more could I ask for.

  208. OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!
    THIS IS INCREDIBLE.
    I AM SO HAPPY.
    ADAM’S VOICE IS AMAZING.
    THE MOVIE IS SICKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK.
    I AM FLAILING RIGHT NOW.
    I LOVE THE SONG.
    I LOVE ADAM LAMBERT.

    SANTA CLAUS LOVES MEEEEEEE!
    I have been waiting for Adam music all my freakin lifeeee!

  209. What is it about this guy’s voice that sends me to the moon?????????????????????????????????????? I have never been this crazy before. I want more and more and more…..

    CindyM: That is all.

    Uh,,,no, it’s not. It’s only the beginning, baby. Buckle your belt, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride’ ¦..

    uh,,,you are so right, what was I thinking???? A bumpy, fantastic, thrill-a-minute ride, I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

  211. This song is incredible, and no one could have done it better than Adam Lambert. I love those power ballads, and I don’t think there is anyone out there right now who can even come close to him. Amazing performer……and I think we’re all in for a fantastic ride.

  212. Just thought I would say hi to his thread. ;) Back to the video clip, already in progress.

    Get ready for an Adam Storm, cause it’ll be here VERY SOON!!!

    It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine…

  213. I can’t figure out which thread I’m supposed to be in. Both Adam threads are running fast at the same time and there is no diff. Guess I’ll try the video thread again.

  214. Adam is so fantastic. I love his voice. Especially for this song Time for Miracles. This movie is going to be a hit because of this song by Adam Lambert. I keep playing it over and over again. I cannot get enough of Adam.

  215. I like the intimate quality of his voice in this snippet. Kind of Dashboard Confessional, emo sound, I guess. Maybe I’m wrong about the comparison. Love the ott power vocals in the video too. It’s all good. *Waves to Sue Brody.*

  216. The song goes with the 2012 movie soundtrack; it’s not from his album.

  217. Love that! One note, and it’s undeniably Adam! I will see this movie just to hear the song with an audience there (hopefully Adam fans clapping when they hear it!) Brian May, you were right! Wish much success for Adam!!

  218. Love the snippet. Can’t wait for the whole shebang. Heart thumping. lol On opening night for 2012, I’ll be at the theatre. :)

  219. Ok, color me totally confused — Why would you want to sit through what appears to be a really bad movie just so your can hear Adam sing over the end credits? Why not simply buy the song when it is released? It’s cheaper, and then you don’t have to waste 2+ hours of your life sitting through a movie you have no real interest in.

    Adam isn’t getting a cut of the money the movie makes from ticket sales (only the director and star usually are able to negotiate a percentage of the box office take into contracts), so sitting through a bad movie what he’s not even in (except for his voice over the end credits) doesn’t really help his career any. If he were actually in the movie, then I could understand go seeing it instead of just buying the song or the soundtrack. But that’s not the case here.

  220. I don’t think that Adam Lambert fans need to justify why they would go to see a movie to hear Adam Lambert sing the them song, A Time for Miracles.

    hwc you’re the best.

  222. Aaaaarrrggh, feels like be in a very long foreplay and still waiting for the real deal…. please dont tease me no more.

    I have been missing his voice for months and now I only got part of the song ???

    Cant wait the grab his album from the store… :p

  223. Wow, with the name “Time for Miracles”….did anybody really think it wasn’t going to be a big power ballad?

    I love it. Adam sounds G.R.E.A.T.
    It is exactly as I was expecting.

    I’ve never felt this way about any other singer/artist, but I don’t even notice the lyrics…I just am so taken with his voice. Of course, Adam’s voice with great lyrics…*shudders*….I think we will have that on his CD. In the meantime, “Time for Miracles” is a perfect diversion. It fits the movie like a glove. Cannot wait to hear it booming from the big screen! Love Love Love the power ballads!

  224. don’t think that Adam Lambert fans need to justify why they would go to see a movie to hear Adam Lambert sing the them song, A Time for Miracles.

    My sentiments exactly….

  225. The movie will make millions worldwide ‘“ who cares if it’s cheesy ‘“ blockbuster doom and gloom always make money. People worldwide crave these types of movies.

    Yup… which is why the movie industry makes at least 1 and sometimes 2 a year!!

  226. Oh and not at all Oscar caliber, imho. Like at all. The movie will be horrible, I expect a box office bomb and I don’t think this song is good enough to overcome that.

    Well, I’m sure the movie won’t win any Oscars (ok, maybe for special effects??) but that was never the point. I doubt it will be a box office bomb though. Big, loud disaster flicks are very popular. I was planning on seeing the film before I even knew Adam had a song in it…so this is just awesome for me. I rarely go the the movies, & when I do it is usually something I want to see on the big screen….like lots of gorgeous destruction & Adam Lambert’s big beautiful voice to make it all better. It’s all good people. All Good.
    Besides that, we are judging this song as though it was his first single. Adam himself had nothing to do with the lyrics, instumentation, etc. So why all the fuss? It’s just a nice diversion until his CD drops. I was never expecting anything else from this song.

  227. Love, love, love everything Adam does … I just wish they would tone down the instruments just a tad and let his glorious vocals sit in front of the music rather than behind it.

  228. Nice to be back again in this blog and w/ a great snippet…. Guys be ready,
    THIS IS IT……..Adam’s great career begins!

  229. Ok, color me totally confused ‘” Why would you want to sit through what appears to be a really bad movie just so your can hear Adam sing over the end credits? Why not simply buy the song when it is released? It’s cheaper, and then you don’t have to waste 2+ hours of your life sitting through a movie you have no real interest in.

    Well since you arent buying their tickets what’s it to you?

  230. Ok, color me totally confused ‘” Why would you want to sit through what appears to be a really bad movie just so your can hear Adam sing over the end credits? Why not simply buy the song when it is released? It’s cheaper, and then you don’t have to waste 2+ hours of your life sitting through a movie you have no real interest in.

    It’s a curious thing. I don’t get it either, but à ¼berfans don’t tend to operate with logic as their primary motivator.

    Actual fans don’t seem to want to answer your question, but I’d guess it’s all tied into the usual — emotional investment. And probably things like wanting to see the song “as it was intended”– how & where it fits into the movie, hearing Lambert’s voice over the speakers in a larger theater space, hoping random moviegoers will be miraculously moved by the song, etc.

  231. Hmm… I guess, IMO, it’s damn good for what it is. Not, mind you, that I’m the type who really enjoys these kinds of songs. On the other hand, his vocal is great as always, and Adam seems really suited to singing these kinds of songs, so that works out well for all. It’s just innately not the kind of thing that would make me thing “wow”, but God could have personally performed this song and I would have shrugged.

  232. Another great song by Natasha Shnieder and Alain Johannes. Strange thing that Natasha once played the role of an astronaut in an old movie called 2010 about Aliens.
    Now we have her song in 2012, and it is sang by one who has to be an Alien for his out of this world vocals.
    I am so glad I discovered Adam Lambert and his superb voice . It does not matter if he is not human, he just has to stay rooted in this planet and give us more songs.

  233. IMO, this song, based on the short snippet, that I heard, is definitely not bad. I think that it sounds better than Kris’s and Allison’s debut singles and it kind of reminds me of an Aerosmith song.

  234. Ok, color me totally confused ‘” Why would you want to sit through what appears to be a really bad movie just so your can hear Adam sing over the end credits? Why not simply buy the song when it is released? It’s cheaper, and then you don’t have to waste 2+ hours of your life sitting through a movie you have no real interest in.

    I don’t think the movie will be that bad. I love disaster movies, so I am looking forward to seeing it. I also want to hear the song in full majestic theatre sound. It will be fabulous
