With all the Grammy news I just started listening to Adele. I know. Now?
Yeah … Now.
Things take time for me. I didn’t get into Radiohead until “In Rainbows” and that’s primarily because of Twilight.
Yeah. I got into Radiohead because of Twilight. Not because of Radiohead’s cool factor. But because of vampires.
So this week everyone’s been talking about how Adele’s one particular song makes you cry. And I get it.
Dear god if I was 16 she would have been my Tori Amos. I don’t even know how many times I cried to this song.
And good god Damien Rice. This would make me sit in a corner rocking back and forth crying “One day he’ll love me. One day. BWWAAAAAAAAA”
So yeah. Tori. Damien Rice. And now Adele.
Their songs instantly wreck me. It’s like somebody decided to turn on this particular scene from Bridges of Madison County.
So I’m jumping on the Adele bandwagon to my husband’s dismay because now I’m going to be listening to completely tragic songs all the time with him wondering what did I do? And really nothing’s wrong. I just really like sad songs and sad movies. I can still be quite pleasant about it. Look at this interview with Adele. Her songs are friggin bleak but she seems like she’d be awesome over lunch.
