Ever since we were young, my sister and I have competed to see who discovers the best music, bands, or singers.
Last night she called me and said, “I’m addicted to a singer you just have to hear.”
Almost as if reverting back to childhood, I replied, “Well, I also have a singer and I’m sure she’s better than yours.”
And then, at the same time, we both said, “Adele.”
Ladies, I’m sure most of you have heard this phenomenal singer but if you haven’t, you have to!
She is fantastic.
I can’t get enough of her music.
Her vocal talent is out of this world.
Her voice is soulful, sultry, and deep.
Her song lyrics captivate you from beginning to end.
Critics have compared her to Amy Winehouse and Duffy.
Adele is like no one I’ve listened to before.
Her current single, “Rolling in the Deep” has a soul/blues vibe that will have you stomping your feet to the pounding of piano chords.
Scorned women will stand up and cheer as Adele verbalizes her plans for revenge against a former lover; warning him that when she’s done, he’ll wish he’d never met her.
Adele wins both our sympathy and empathy as we realize her story has been our own story at some point in our lives.
Furthermore, the song lyrics remind us that there’s no escaping from these feelings after a breakup.
Throughout the song I found myself shouting, “You tell him!” “You go, girl!” “That’s right!” “Absolutely!” as I stomped and danced across the room.
Ladies, this is a song of promise.
The promise of how the wrongful lover will both regret and suffer the consequences of his actions.
