I Adore Adele

05.21.2011

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m kind of obsessed with music. One of my favorite things to do is go to concerts or listen to live music pretty much anywhere, and periodically I will discover new artists that I listen to on repeat for a span of a few months. The most recent artist to strike my fancy is Adele. I first heard Adele on iTunes when her song “Hometown Glory” was the free download of the week a few years ago. I’ve been in love with that song ever since the first few notes, and as she’s been getting more attention from the mainstream lately I’ve been able to listen to more of her songs. And, let me tell you, home-girl has talent pouring out of every fiber of her being. Often I’m disappointed with the attention that certain “artists” get from the media, because I’m a huge supporter of natural talent instead of over-produced success and I feel like a lot of the time genuine talent gets overlooked. But for me, Adele is the real-deal. Don’t believe me? Check out some of her stuff on YouTube. She’s been getting a lot of attention for “Rolling in the Deep,” but my new favorite is “Turning Tables.” I added the video below. Check her out!
