Single Review: Adele – Someone Like You

April 27, 2011

Yo bro, a bunch of us are gonna cry to that new Adele, are you down?  Obvi.  Fucking dope ass heartfelt piano ballad, this one is even better than Hometown Glory.  Is Gossip Girl still on?  Shouldn’t someone get killed/married/pregnant/broken up with to this song?  Still waiting for Hov to recruit her for his next mega-hit.  I saw some dubstep remixes of this song; are you kidding me?  There’s literally no way you could touch up this song with mega-bass or whatever, the whole point is that it’s a piano ballad.  Gotta say with all snark removed that I’m absolutely happy for her success, it’s unfortunately a rarity in the industry to see someone succeed with as much talent as she has.  Yes, I know how that sounds.  Go get 21 now.

10/10.

Ellie Goulding – Lights (Shook Remix)

March 16, 2011

The amount of Ellie Goulding remixes floating around are on the precipice of over-saturation, but shit like this makes up for it.  Shook (?)  gives the track a lounge feel and the result is dope dope dope dope dope dope.  The most pleasant track I’ve heard all year.

Ellie Goulding – Your Song

December 13, 2010

How good is this?  This is an Elton John cover apparently?  I wouldn’t know because I’m not a fan (Billy Joel better).  Apparently she’s the shit out in Britain.  Off to listen to the album now – I’m 40% convinced that she’s the one.
