The future of music isn't completely dire...this girl...her voice...omg.






Although...the the video is troubling. On the one hand, it seems to be saying that the vid is ALL about her amazing voice. No flashy dancers and gimmicks. On the other hand, is she seated throughout, in a goregous but stately dress, because of her weight? Hmmm.

Also, don't read the comments. Most of them are wonderful but there are some amazingly douchey comments on her weight.

Interview with the director of the vid. No sinister motive :o) http://www.fuse.tv/music/columns/take-on-me/31711-1.html

I love this song!

Thanks for that. I really wanted to believe it was because nothing else was needed but her voice, but I tend to forget that the directors may have their own vision that they want to convey.

I have been in love with her and listening to her basically non-stop for months now. Her voice kills me, especially when she's singing live. &hearts

This is my favorite live version of the song:

That love version rocked! Thanks so much for the link. :)

You're welcome. :) I'm glad you liked it. I find I need to link that song to everywhere, and then I hope they check out the related videos because she's actually quite incredible live.

I'm just enthralled by her voice in general. Even speaking, it's just the right kind of raspy - and her accent is posh! :)

My 12-year-old daughter was talking about how much she loves Adele's voice and her songs the other day. And then she said that a lot of people say mean things about Adele because of her weight. My awesome daughter was totally outraged about it and declared all such people stupid idiots.

Your daughter is awesome! :)

Debs is correct, you're daughter is very awesome. I couldn't believe the shallowness of some of those YouTube comments. I hope the girl NEVER gives in to the pressure and keeps being her own amazing self.

I ADORE this video and song. I linked it on my FB awhile back. Don't know why I didn't link it on LJ - just lazy I guess. Anyway, I loved that she just sat the whole time but it did cross my mind if it had anything to do with her weight. I guess I'm just sensitized to those things. But the link from Claire seems to dispel that idea, so that makes me feel better about it.
12th-Jun-2011 06:53 am (UTC)
Me too! And I don't think it's because you're sensitive, not when I was thinking the same thing. :)

I don't remember you posting this on FB, but I gotta say, by your guys comments, I think I'm seriously late to the party as usual. Everyone already knows about her, LOL.

Everyone needs to love Adele. She's totally, totally awesome.
And you should find that vid of her singing Someone Like You on Ellen. That one goes right to your heart.

I'm so in love with Rolling in the Deep, I'm afraid I haven't gotten to her other songs yet. *sheepish*
12th-Jun-2011 04:21 pm (UTC)
I totally get that; I keep listeing to it, too. Good thing, it'S on the radio here so often.

Adore her voice; I can't stop listening to 21....
12th-Jun-2011 06:56 am (UTC)
I've had Rolling in the Deep on repeat for a few days now...
10th-Jun-2011 09:54 pm (UTC)
Adele is awesome! I have been listening to her new album nonstop since it came out! And I LOVE the fact that she's not some little tiny anorexic looking thing. This is what women are SUPPOSED to look like!

If you want, I can upload the album for you. It's fantastic!
12th-Jun-2011 06:57 am (UTC)
Oh thanks but I think I will take it one song at a time. Right now I'm so stuck on Rolling in the Deep, I don't want to listen to anything else.

And ditto to her weight. I think she looks beautiful and real...so tired of seeing skinny little wannabes in music...Adele blows them ALL out of the water.

SHE IS SO GOOD.

I don't think anything beats "Someone Like You" for me, though. Gah.
12th-Jun-2011 07:00 am (UTC)
For me it's Rolling in the Deep. Can't enough of it.

Her voice, GOD HER VOICE.
