It all started with this song:
Not that I don’t like her much earlier hit Chasing Pavements, but Rolling In The Deep really did it for me. It rang in my head for several days after hearing it, I tell ya. Even though it did, I never get tired of listening to it, instead I asked and craved for more. I loved the sentiment of the song – angst, hatred, sadness and regret all rolled into one. Several more days, the internet was abuzz that her album 21 has reached the number 1spot at the Billboard charts. Judging by the first single alone, it was not surprising at all.
And then came this song – Turning Tables. I don’t know if it’s already an official single but I fell in love with it right after hearing it. It’s not a love song to begin with, it’s another angst y song of hers that’s just so addicting. I find her and her songs attractive, actually. Edgy, a lot of personality, and the voice that says it all. Seeing and hearing her performing live is simply orgasmic. Sorry TMI, but that’s how it felt for me. I love her! Listen to the live version and see how Adele interprets the song – like she’s really feeling the pain and all the hurt surmounting her at that very moment.
Gwyneth Paltrow did a Gleek version of Turning Tables, and I have to say she did a pretty good job. But of course, I still prefer Adele’s version, especially the heartfelt live version which never fails to send chills down my spine. As I compose this blog entry, I am downloading her album 21. I know I should buy a cd, and it’ll be worth it if I do, but not now I guess. I will have a new playlist to put on repeat mode in my ipod. Yey! I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the songs and make love to each of them during bed time. Ok. Must. Stop. Now.
