Adele "Someone Like You"

Well, we didn't really shock the world here, announcing that mvyradio's listeners voted Adele's "21" record to be our #1 Album Of 2011. I mean, she topped about a hundred other "Best Of" lists, too, including the telling Billboard list, which isn't necessarily a mark of quality, but in this case denotes that LOTS of people loved this record.

This is the last song on the record, and leaves the door wide open for what might come next . . .

She could go in a fully Pop direction, and cement herself as an icon of Gaga proportions.

There is the rumored Country record that she has mentioned in interviews. Seems her tour bus driver introduced her to Patsy Cline and other classic twangsters.

Or, as she as also mentioned in interviews, she could more directly emulate her biggest influence and become an Etta James for a new generation.

It just another thing to look forward to for 2012.

(added bonus on this song . . . it was co-written by Dan Wilson of Semisonic. So nice to see a great songwriter find collaborators who can take his gifts for melody, and hit a home run with it)

Hear the song on Youtube.
