A pop convert?

It’s no secret that every once in a while there’s a Live Lounge track that I fall head over heels for. A slightly less familiar love however, is that old chestnut called pop music. Then there is Adele. Oh, and her jaw-dropping, simply spectacular performance on The Brits this week.

Maybe it’s because I can identify with the lyrics (sadly, I too have experienced ‘the-one-that-got-away’ syndrome – haven’t we all?) or perhaps it’s her phenomenal vocals. Possibly it’s the fact that she put every inch of her heart and soul into that one single performance. Whatever it is, Adele should be duly presented with a Brit award solely for that five-minute masterpiece.

If you haven’t heard it already, here it is, but before you press play, I strongly recommend you stop what you’re currently doing and give it your full attention. You won’t want to miss a minute of this extraordinarily touching song.

While I may be far from ready to hang up my techno shoes, sincere kudos goes to this woman who delivers an utterly moving performance. Long may she continue to break boundaries and truly personify what the music industry is all about.
