We don't have a bad word to say about Adele. Humble, genuine, beautiful and a set of pipes that make angels weep with jealousy, there are many reasons to love Adele.
Born in Tottenham, England (Go, Hotspurs!) Adele started singing at age 4 and was obsessed with voices. Today she has no shame giving the Spice Girls credit for their influence over her, her favorite being Ginger Spice.
Publicly she had a bum relationship with a loser jerk wad, but when it comes to the music she has created, Adele has come out smelling like a rose.
She also has a baby, a seemingly healthy relationship, is mentioned numerous times in Guinness World Records, and wrote a James Bond movie song. Outside of the loser jerk wad, who doesn't love a story like that?
If you aren't already a fan of Adele, that's a shame and you should reconsider. Though she doesn't have many albums under her belt, her voice alone should be enough to add her to a regularly-listened to playlist.
OUR FAVORITE ADELE'S
The single "Skyfall" is James Bond movie song, has dramatic music and Adele's amazing voice. Forget Daniel Craig, this song rocks.
From iTunes Live from SoHo, Adele's cover of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love" will give you goosebumps winter, spring, summer or fall.
This awesome remake of the Cure's "Lovesong" is featured on the 21 album. It's a relaxing and no matter how far away, you will always love it whenever it comes up on your playlist.
From the 19 album, "Crazy for You" is a sweet, simple song about those new relationship feelings everyone is looking for. Adele also showcases the range and control she has over her voice unlike she does in any other song.
Another great selection from the 21 album, "Set Fire to the Rain" is a powerful ballad about trying to get over a rocky relationship. When you're feeling a little down and need a pick-me up, extend an ear to Adele. She'll make you feel right as rain.
From the 21 album, "Rolling in the Deep" is a must-have for any music fan. Though it's been overplayed on the radio, the song never gets old with its strong beat, passionate lyrics and, of course, Adele's amazing voice.
From the 21 album, if you don't feel slightly emotional after listening to "Someone Like You," you're not human.
