Hello

When I was 7, I wanted to be 8. When I was 8, I wanted to be 12. When I turned 12 I just wanted to be 18. Then after that I stopped wanting to be older. Now I’m ticking 16-24 boxes just to see if I can blag it! I feel like I’ve spent my whole life so far wishing it away. Always wishing I was older, wishing I was somewhere else, wishing I could remember and wishing I could forget too. Wishing I hadn’t ruined so many good things because I was scared or bored. Wishing I wasn’t so matter of fact all the time. Wishing I’d gotten to know my great grandmother more, and wishing I didn’t know myself so well, because it means I always know what’s going to happen in the end. Wishing I hadn’t cut my hair off, wishing I was 5’7”. Wishing I’d waited and wishing I’d hurried up as well.

My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. But I haven’t got time to hold on to the crumbs of my past like I used to. What’s done is done. Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties. Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully-fledged adult, I made the decision to go into becoming who I’m going to be forever without a removal van full of my old junk. I miss everything about my past, the good and the bad, but only because it won’t come back. When I was in it I wanted out! So typical. I’m on about being a teenager: sitting around and chatting shit, not caring about the future because it didn’t matter then like it does now. The ability to be flippant about everything and there be no consequences. Even following and breaking rules… is better than making the rules.

25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.

Love,

Adele

The sounds and talking from the video ruined my enjoyment of the song (which is good but not as memorable as her others).

It's no "Rolling in the Deep", but I like it. Maybe I just need to hear it more, which I'm sure I will.

Yeah, like most songs, they don't hit you instantly. Though I will have no casual chance to hear it again. It would have to be a conscious decision.

She goes full Celine on this song and I'm absolutely here for it. The chorus is out of this world.

Ok, so my wife has it on repeat, so I guess I will hear it a lot. It's a good song.

I actually like the verses better than the chorus.

So the Adele Hurricane has pretty much stomped on every record available.

She destroyed the Vevo record by 35%
could very well debut with over 1million single sales, which is unheard of, since the record is 638K. (in the digital era of course)
Made Spotify its bitch
And will break the fastest to 100m views on Vevo by a day and a half

This is just blowing up left and right, it's crazy. "Hello" is going to crush the record for biggest digital debut (Flo Rida's "Right Round" with 636,000 sold in its first week), cruising past 1 million and possibly even doubling the previous record. It's number 1 pretty much everywhere in the world with a few minor exceptions, and the best part is that she's hardly had to do any promotion for it; she just dropped the song and it took off.

I absolutely love Adele, so I'm happy that she's doing this well (again) and I'm looking forward to seeing just how big "25" will be when it drops in a few weeks.

Edit: I need to not take so long to write so little, because damnit Mau. :P

She's gonna fly past Britney's record that's not even funny

Her pre orders are up to 250K in 5 days.

So she has sold more pre orders than the current #1 in the album chart. HEr reign has unoficially started.

Yeah, I've heard it a few more times, it's absolutely fantastic. Hopefully there are a few more zingers on the album. Hopefully it can at least come close to 21's quality.

The song is a little cliche if you ask me. It's written from the perspective of someone who dwells on the past after years from breaking up. She is trying to hang on to the moment of youth and being in love and hoping to make amends, but the person on the other side is far and away and probably does not care. Perfect karaoke song.

She could be saying anything, I wouldn't care. Never been one for lyrics.

I hate people that say "you have to listen to the lyrics", and try to belittle people that don't care for the lyrics because they think there is only one way to enjoy music.

I can agree with you when it comes to other genres such as electronica or funk. But this is pop ballad. And Adele is a singer-songwriter (she claims she has written a "make-up" album after 21 was a "break-up" album.). Words/messages are an essential part of her music.

It is art. It can be enjoyed by whoever, however.

Of course. Anybody can enjoy or not enjoy the song in any way they see fit. The quality/substance of the song can still be judged on.

Oh totally. My comment about hating people that say you have to listen to the lyrics was not directed at you. It was directed at one of my brother's old mates. He was a douche, and an insecure idiot that always tried to belittle others by trying to "educate" them on things that don't need to be taught. He was a prick. He grew a goatee and wore a long black leather jacket because he was short and trying to compensate for it.
