A Song for Broken Hearts.

Via on Oct 2, 2011

“I wish nothing but the best for yooouuu tooooo…”

Lindsey blogged up about Adele, and Lindsey is one of those hip kids who’s taste I’m constantly bogarting…so I finally got into Adele a bit a week ago, and then last night…discovered this song.

Listen to the intro in the first two videos—is a keeper.

I love the above. She could keep her weight, it she liked, but exercise a little and smoke less and her voice and stamina and longterm career would benefit. That said, not wanting to be a Britney or Katy is right-on, and a good example to music fans.

Her vapid political observations, however…

Bonus: this song does remind me of young love, something I haven’t felt in awhile, now, at 37 years of age. And when I tripped across this student video cover of the song, that feeling was confirmed. This is a song for young broken hearts.

Best youtube comment:

anyone else feel like there should be a copy and paste button for your life into this video? ChandlerB90

  1. Her voice is just amazing…and lyrics are as well. I use several of her songs during my at-home yoga practice.

    I can't resist Adele either. I've worn out several of her songs. Currently listening to "Turning Tables": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w44dk4ysnz8&ob…. I especially love her live: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2GGN3mzhng She sounds like a witch best friend who understands you and, by being broken herself, will somehow break any harmful spells you may be under. She makes vulnerability into a strength (like it should be). Oh and most importantly, she knows how to laugh at herself. That's really something nowadays.

    This song makes me bawl my eyes out, while hoping that the "he" I cry over will be thinking this about me someday soon and I will be in a more satisfying relationship and happy happy happy. Finally. :)

    When I first heard that lovely voice I thought to myself finally someone who could play in a biopic of Janice Joplin. But for that face-that exquisitely beautiful face……

  6. [...] A per­son who gets turned on by tears. So what you’re say­ing is that all the men who’ve bro­ken my heart are dacryphil­i­acs? All kid­ding aside this par­tic­u­lar fetish seems to be quite creepy. [...]

  7. [...] And then, I shook it off a little. No more sulking and sighing. Time for a new song (or two, or eight.) As great as they are, I thought I was done with the 108 bazillion covers of Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You. [...]

    Amen. She has quit smoking, or tried at least, I know. Should help the voice a bit. ~ W.
