A blog post about Adele

You read it right, I am writing a post about Adele. Up to today I was a fan. Admittedly, I was a lukewarm fan, but a fan nonetheless.

After today I am smitten. Do yourself a favour and buy the Live at Royal Albert Hall DVD. Don’t borrow it or download it, BUY it. You will never NEVER be sorry.

She is funny, she is honest and she made me cry with Make you feel my love. It is a Bob Dylan song and it hits you right in the gut. It made me think of being a parent, even though it’s more of a love song. About the things we would do for our children, the lengths we would go to. Have a look and then read the lyrics at the bottom:

Make you feel my love

When the rain
Is blowing in your face
And the whole world
Is on your case
I could offer you
A warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows
And the stars appear
And there is no – one there
To dry your tears
I could hold you
For a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you
Haven’t made
Your mind up yet
But I would never
Do you wrong
I’ve known it
From the moment
That we met
No doubt in my mind
Where you belong

I’d go hungry
I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling
Down the avenue
Know there’s nothing
That I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my loveThe storms are raging
On the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change
Are blowing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing
Like me yetI could make you happy
Make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends
Of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love, To make you feel my love

Ps. In the Royal Albert Hall DVD she dedicates the song to Amy Winehouse. I get all teary just thinking about it.
