Day 397 - Adele - Chasing Pavements

DAY 397
Adele - "Chasing Pavements"
From "19"

My UK music obsession continues.

I discovered this song when it played on the radio a few weeks ago and at first I did not pay a ton of attention because it was just background music to another day driving to work, but then about 5 days ago I heard it again on the radio while driving home from work and it really caught my attention. So much so that I had to call Glenn at home to look it up and find out more about it.

Turns out this girl is freaking amazing! I love the album and recommend it to anyone who misses truly soulful music. The album is called "19" because that is her age. Holy freakin' space monkeys! That is unreal! This girl has a lot to bring to the table at such a tender age. Her sound I believe is best described as Feist meets Joss Stone meets a teeny dash of Aretha Franklin. Great stuff!

You HAVE got to give this song a chance! Check out the YouTube video, (the live version is just about as magical if not more so),but seriously BUY this album. It is so exciting to see such amazing talent emerging back on to popular radio!!!

(Here is Adele singing daydreamer on Jools Holland live. This is a very moving performance and so vocally effortless for this amazing lady. WOW!!!)
