    So it might be a little late but I just heard Adele's Someone like you and its awesome. I thought I would share it for people who haven't heard it yet.





    Listening to the song brings a question to mind ;have any of you guys have stories about the one you thought who got away?

    @RPM>>> she released her first album in 2008..not sure how long she's been doing it.

    this is my single most favorite artist EVER! i think she's got sooo much to offer, and especially proved it at The Brits this year, when she performed this song! took it back to basics, and still worked her magic!

    And to think she's so young, and already achieving this much! LOVE her!

    I had never heard of her before you guys started talking about her on this site. Great voice, I would go see her if I had the chance. She's got a long career ahead of her if she wants it.

    I like Adele. She has a beautiful voice. I saw her play live on a small private venue about 2 yrs ago. She's funny too; really random, but sweet. However, I do not like that song and I haven't heard the rest of songs on her new album.

    For me, it's always about the music. You can have the best voice, dance moves, or whatever, but if the music is not crisp and catchy, I tend to lose interest no matter how established the artist may be.

    My favorite song from the live show I saw her play in was "Crazy for You." I think her team was foolish not to release that track as a single back then, especially the live version, which is far better than the album version. It went something like this:

    collegestud: How can you not like this song? The lyrics are amazing! You can tell how talented an artist is if they can sing just with a piano. For me, great music is not only about the beat but it encompass good lyrics, and a good voice, but every one has their own opinion icon_smile.gif

    Song is good, but the friend who introduced me to it also said she was hot. On the latter point I disagree wholeheartedly...she's fat!

    There is a difference between music and poetry. The two are commonly referred to as one because they often work in tandem in certain forms of art. However, they are not the same.

    Music refers to particular sound arrangements that produce a melody. It can be manifested through audition--enabling capture by our sensory auditory system--or manifested in written form. The written form of music refers to music composition (i.e., sheet music, a score), which also contains information to enable auditory communication.

    The lyrics of a song are related to poetry and prose. "Songwriting" as it is colloquially referred to in our times, has little to do with music making. I can appreciate poetry in a song, but the only appropriate way of judging musical content is through audition.

    Anyway, despite the lyrics and Adele's voice, I don't like the song. I believe that answers your question. icon_razz.gif

    Her whole career is fucking amazing.

    Sure, Rolling in the Deep has gone all "mainstreamy" but who can't relate to:
    "You had my heart inside of your hand, and you played it to the beat."
    My heart has certainly been played to the beat before.

    Yeah, I like good lyrics and good voice, but for me a good song depends on the melody... and this melody I find monotonous
