Discovering, Loving Adele

My latest belated musical find is Adele. I know she’s been creating buzz for awhile, but I finally heard her huge new song today, weeks behind the times.

The British singing sensation Adele

I still get excited when I hear a new voice and a new song that just rocks me, and that’s the case with Adele’s song “Rolling in the Deep.”

The song has this great early ’70s pop vibe, with a satisfying, thudding base line and percussion. Her voice is a bit raspy and deeply souful and strong. “Rolling in the Deep” is sexy as hell.

Adele won two Grammys in 2009, for best new artist and best female vocal performance. Her second album, “21” which “Rolling in the Deep” is on, was released Jan. 24 and has been selling like gangbusters.

I’m sure many of you have heard the song already, but I’ll post a link to the video anyway, so you can hear it again, or hear it for the first time. I’ll be humming this tune to myself all day.

You’ll have to click on the link to YouTube on the screen to see the video.
