Day 16: Cry

Day 16 is a song that has made me cry.

I know this will seem like a cliche now, but if I happen to post this say, a couple of years ago, I would’ve appeared unique.  I have loved Adele since Hometown Glory and Chasing Pavements.  Sometimes, I find her fame annoying.  All of a sudden, everyone is coming up with a cover of an Adele song and everyone keeps listening to it and the jeepneys kept playing her song, and videoke bars keep having bad singers give their own rendition… I miss loving and adoring and admiring Adele like a guarded secret.

But brilliance and sheer talent cannot be contained.  I just have to live with it.  When she first released 21, I didn’t immediately gravitate towards Rolling in the Deep.  It was her Brit Awards performance that just brought me to tears.  I know I posted this before but what the heck?  Let’s post it again.

I would like to still believe that this is our generation’s I Will Always Love You.

Linkin Park does Adele

I very rarely like covers.  But this one is just perfect.

I remember the time when I was a fan of Linkin Park.  Then they started to crawl under my skin and annoy me, prolly because they’re playing over and over in the radio.  Then every Shia LeBouf movie needed a Linkin Park soundtrack.  So yeah.  For a moment, I was sick of them.

Then this.

See, Adele does a lot of good things.  Her songs brings our the rawness and the prowess of the singer’s voice.
