It’s amazing. She is amazing.

Adele – Someone Like You

I heard that you’re settled down
That you found a girl
And you’re married now

I heard that your dreams came true
I guess she gave you things
I didn’t give to you

Old friend why are you so shy
Ain’t like you to hold back
Or hide from the light

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away I couldn’t fight it
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me I beg
I’ll remember you say
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised in a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away I couldn’t fight it
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me I beg
I’ll remember you say
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They’re memories made
Who would have known
How bittersweet
This would taste

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me I beg
I’ll remember you say
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me I beg
I’ll remember you say
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead

What can I say? I love Adele. I always have. Her debut album, 19, blew me away. Her second album, 21, is doing the same. This song floors me. Her voice floors me.

Adele’s performace of this song at The Brit awards was phenomenal. James Cordon (the host) said it perfectly – who needs fancy pyrotechnics and backing dancers when you have a voice and a talent like Adele.

On a more personal note I also love Adele because her album was number one the week my niece, Natalie, was born and I bought a copy of the album to give to her when she grows up. Natalie is turning three next Monday (WOW!) and Adele’s newest album is number one this year. I can see my “time capsule” for Natalie getting another addition.

Please watch the video. It’s amazing.

my favourite 10 albums of 2010

I’m sure you all figured it was coming – my countdown of which albums I liked most from 2010! (I can hear you all cheering in the background!)

I started with a list of 13 and I really thought it was going to be quite difficult to narrow it down to only 10 albums. Then, when I started doing some research, I found out that my numbers 9 and 10 were actually released in 2009! Now with a list of only 11 it was easy peasy pie.

Please find below, in reverse order, the list of my favourite albums from 2010. Everyone should listen to them immediately.

10. Arcade Fire – The Suburbs
9. The Rifles – The Great Escape
8. The Boy Who Trapped the Sun – Fireplace
7. The Courteeners – Falcon
6. Tired Pony – The Place We Ran From
5. General Fiasco – Buildings
4. Two Door Cinema Club – Tourist History
3. The Gaslight Anthem – American Slang
2. Kings of Leon – Come Around Sundown
1. Frightened Rabbit – The Winter of Mixed Drinks

Other albums I listened to far too often in 2010 that were released in previous years (but that I only discovered in 2010) include:

The Gaslight Anthem – Sink or Swim & The ’59 Sound
Frightened Rabbit – The Midnight Organ Fight
The XX – XX
Band of Skulls – Baby, Darling, Doll Face, Honey

Opinions, please, but only if you agree with me! 🙂
