Music Monday- Adele and Her "Dark, Bluesy, Gospel, Disco," Sound

Meltingpot Readers,

I'm officially in love with Adele, otherwise known as the latest British Blue-eyed-soul singer to take the music world by storm. I realize I'm a little late on the discovery, but I still needed to share. El esposo just received her new album, 21, for his birthday and I have officially claimed it for my own. It is phenomenal. Adele's voice seriously grabbed my heart and soul from the first note out of her mouth.

After hearing this song, Rolling in the Deep, I was convinced this British singer had to have some significant Black influence in her life and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that she didn't. One of her earliest influences? The Spice Girls! I love it when people refuse to fall into our own preconceived notions. Forces you to expand your own limited imagination and ideas. I know I did.

Anybody else an Adele fan? What's your favorite song?

I'm listening.

Her cover of the Dylan song, "Make You Feel My Love." Gorgeous!

I love "Cold Shoulder" too, both are from her debut album.
