"I cried," Craig told Yahoo! Movies
"From the opening bars I knew immediately, then the voice kicked in and it was exactly what I'd wanted from the beginning.
"It just got better and better because it fitted the movie. In fact the more of the movie we made, the more it fitted it."
Skyfall director Sam Mendes added of Adele: "She came in very early before we started shooting and her main concern was, 'I write songs about myself, how can I make a 'Bond' song?'
"My answer was, 'Just write a personal song!' Carly Simon's 'Nobody Does it Better' was a love song."
Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson have maintained that Adele was always their first choice to record the theme for the movie.
'Skyfall' has been covered by Jedward and Willow Smith since its release.
Skyfall will open in UK cinemas on October 26 and November 9 in the US.
