With its classical-piano rolls at the beginning of the song and raspy vocals, Adele sings a woeful ode with the live version of "Someone Like You." The lyrics speak for itself and Adele's bluesy-soul is somewhat reminiscent of the style of Dusty Springfield. Indeed, one of the most emotional and powerful songs to be produced in recent times where the singer's vocals exceptionally interpreted the melody and words to the song.
And in a recent Rolling Stones interview, Adele says it all, "I don't make music for eyes, I make music for ears." With that quote, she has already has a place in Rock and Roll history.
It is hard to believe that we really don't have a lot of good singers that can deliver a simple song from a piano note. For Adele, who is really riding high on her sophmore album 21, has shown a nice growth in her voice, and the feeling of her songs. That is the case with her live performance here of Someone Like You. She really brings in a noble and simple sound to the soul of the song. It is honestly a nice MP3 to own, for anyone whom is new to Adele's voice, and wants to hear a strong getaway from what has to be hot on radio, and doesn't get that feeling right now. If you've bought 21, get this download for your MP3 Player.
This song reminds me of an old lover coming back and that feeling still lingering in the air like an paused breath, held forever in the world of "what if." Ah the pleasure and pain, the ecstasy of loving.
her voice is killer. shes one of the few artist out there that sounds amazing when they sing live. if only more artists now had talent similar to this. people are complaining about the quality but itsa live track without any digital editing. its great and it actually is studio quality
Many people who recently bought Adele's new album have been disappointed with the slightly different version of "Someone Like You" than what Adele has been performing for the past couple weeks. Well, this is that different version that many of you came to love from Adele's live performances where the "don't forget me I beg" part is sang in full voice instead of falsetto.
