Adele, in the past few years, has managed to rise to extreme fame and also has gathered every award and recognition she proved she truly deserved. This phenomenal singer-songwriter has not only touched the core of everyone who listens to her music, but also managed to write songs that truly and deeply expressed the truest feelings and emotions of her heart. She is not only a singer, a musician and an artist combined, she is a genuine artist. She has made music not only just a simple source of entertainment but more importantly a form of art.
- Rolling in the Deep
“We could have it all rolling in the deep. You had my heart inside of your hand and you played it to the beat.”
Rolling the Deep perhaps served as the key song that gave Adele her big break internationally. It is a mixture of varying genres that it is quite impossible to classify it into just one. Six million copies of Rolling in the Deep were sold in the United States alone. This narrates the story of a woman who felt love at its highest intensity, lost grasp of this love that seemed like forever, and learned to move on after a while. Their love appeared to be something so passionate and strong at first, but then it faded away. She felt deep regret for her lost love but later on realized that it was actually a good thing that happened because she let go of the wrong man who just played with her feelings.
- Someone Like You
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”
Adele wrote this song about a guy with whom she had a relationship with for years. This is a heartbreaking song about loving someone who already moved on and found someone new, while you are there stuck in loving him who will not return the affection anymore. And in this disheartening situation you got caught in, all you have remaining is the little hope that someday you will find someone just like your old lover and once again feel the warmth and comfort of loving and being loved in return.
- Chasing Pavements
“Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements even if it leads nowhere?”
This again is another song about an unreturned love. This speaks of being torn between finding the strength to get over your fruitless loving and to keep on giving your affection to someone whom you know will never return your love back.
- Turning Tables
“Next time I’ll be braver. I’ll be my own savior when the thunder calls for me.”
This song is about a kind of love that is possibly shared but not being on the same page. Since a woman is singing the song, it appears that the woman loves the man truly but it is not exactly the same for the man though he thinks that he actually does. Turning Tables tells that the woman would not welcome the man into her life fully to avoid the obvious risk of getting hurt.
