Re: Hello [New Adele song]

The fuss is because it's her first release in a few years. She has a beautiful voice but the song is a tad too slow and boring for me.

Re: Hello [New Adele song]

I don't mind her music, I ask because I had many Facebook feeds mentioning that on first hearing people were crying, celebrities like Jay Z, Rihanna, Drake and Beyonce were really impressed (and also crying). Sounds like hysteria to me and if it is, its a really unbelievable marketing campaign.

I really like her anti-celeb stance and her 'normalness' and therefore don't get this hype (if it is)...

Re: Hello [New Adele song]

I like her songs as long as it's not in a row. And makes me feel depressed.

Re: Hello [New Adele song]

She is one of the few singers who could sing the telephone book and evoke tears from the audience. I love her unpretentiousness and look forward to hearing more from her new record.

Re: Hello [New Adele song]

The song made me cry, too - when I realized i'd just wasted 6 minutes of my life listening to such poppy crap.

Unpretentious? lol - like when she started the song with the 'blue steel' stare into the camera?..

And Adele? Adele who? No last name? Does one automatically put themselves in the pop diva league by dropping the last name? ( Madonna, Cher, Beyonce, Shakira? )

She trills her voice too much, and sometimes she tries to add more character by pronouncing her words like an Arkansas redneck.

To each his/her own i guess...

My broken laptop is playing some bloody sad song over and over.

Think it's a Dell.

Re: Hello [New Adele song]

Honestly, I can't tell any beautiful song nowadays. You sing or you like it just because you hear it too often.

Re: Hello [New Adele song]

Awfully boring.
I could have dropped a few coins into her box if she was a street artist, though. Just for the effort. That is no music in my book....for a diva at least.

Was trying to be neutral but tbh I felt like this as well. I'd rather her be pretentious and slide a bit of humour in somewhere after keeping all those non-entities waiting on her new album.

Music isn't any good anymore and this is the best we can expect, I do think her non-celeb thing is good but the music isn't as good as the old stuff (like The Carpenters, Phoebe Snow, Ella, Dina Washington, etc).

There's loads of good stuff around at the moment. You just have to get past the "Vevo recommends" bit of youtube to find it.

I don't really know this Adele character, but I listened to a couple of bars of the song in the OP and thought it sounded a bit derivative.

There is if you search but in the old days there was so much good stuff. I do come across stuff I like like www.hiromimusic.com and she's playing soon in Zurich but not often...
