Yes, I’m talking about Adele again. It’s only the second time here on Wonderlust (but for one artist, that is kind of a big deal), but if you follow me on twitter you are probably ready for me to be done with it already!
I knew the first time I heard Rolling in the Deep when it was released months ago as the first single that I was going to love the album, and it did not disappoint. My play counter on iTunes tells me I have listened to the album 29 times. 29. I got it like three weeks ago. (Yes, bootleg, it drops tomorrow in the US.) And that doesn’t include iPhone plays.
Here, the song Someone Like You, which I’m pretty sure would put you on the brink of tears even if you’ve never had your heart broken. But I’m pretty sure everyone has imagined the situation she’s describing… you run into your ex and they’ve moved on… woof.
But anyway, in this video, she performs the song in her own house, so it’s quite cool to get a look at her house, and she gives a little intro on writing the song.
PS- If you’re new to Adele, check her out if you like Etta James, Lauryn Hill, and/or Ella Fitzgerald… she’s along those lines. But white and British. Interesting, no?
