Which pop act is the new Milli Vanilla, purely a Memorex concert experience?
Much like Amy Winehouse. “She gave so much to so many”
Forgetting what she was given on the day that she was born.
She “smokes” but bet she won't need an app on her Iphone to help her speak!
Scratch her off the list of potential candidates.............
Same here. That is how I first heard of Adele. A true talent.
It was a no music special.If they would quit jumping around all the time they have some breath left to sing.
Wow very impressive! I’m sure if he keeps it up that he will be famous one day.
I thought Bonnie Raitt sounded the best of any performer tonight.
Yeah, but was she singing from her diaphragm?
Thanks, this fellow is good.
Dude’s better than the song he’s playing.
Adele’s cute. Nice lungs.
I saw Gene Simmons at the opening of the NAMM Show a few years ago.
He was his usual self, but he told the crowd that anyone could do what he has done. He said, I’m a Millionaire and I can’t even read Music.
That is a Bobby Dylan song
I wonder how many your dumb ass posts have.
Adele should have won, but one of the losers for song of the year, Bon Iver, got almost zero attention, and that’s a shame. Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon might be the best songwriter since Dylan. His first album was written, produced, and recorded over three months in a cabin in Wisconsin. That fact alone is astonishing if you have ever heard it. I hoped that Bon Iver’s Holocene would win, not because it’s better than Rolling in the Deep, but because Adele doesn’t need anymore fans, and the music world desperately needs Bon Iver. Check it...
Oh, and check one of Bon Iver’s booster clubs too....
I rarely notice pop music anymore
but I picked up on her right away
so have a lot of folks
a rare voice...
I know...some snob here will tell me opera voices are best yadayada...she doesn’t know how to sing...blah blah blah
Adele is in a class of her own in my view right now at this time...and thank God...she does not have to break it up acapella...man I cannot stand hearing pigs slaughtered
and she is heard as a woman singing without having to scream or shout
that is the tell right there....
few women can do that
I really love that song...I play it a lot on my droid in my truck
WOW! thank you for the link. That was incredible. Who is he? Are they any more youtubes of him playing? He is very talented.
Bon Iver got best new artist
that is hardly zero attention
Great song... thanks for that link!
My point would be that song of the year nominees should at the very least get some airtime. There is no bigger Beatle fan than me, but seriously.. McCartney’s throwaway tune “Valentine?” Why not feature a song that is competing with Adele for SONG OF THE YEAR that almost NO ONE has heard? My son called me and told me to check out Bon Iver a few months ago. It was different, and the lyrics are not easily deciphered, in other words, they have an artistic lilt. i would imagine that Dylanesque would be a good way to describe it. Not bad company, and sorely missing from standard FM fare today.
STALKING YOU? Thanks for the giggle. You truly are ridiculous.
It happens to me all the time...Don’t worry. Ipad malfunctions stink! Don’t you hate when it changes your words around???
Adele sang all right tonight. No vocal chord problem at all.
Yeah, I wondered about that too...
Adele: “...the phrase “rolling in the deep” is sort of my adaptation of a kind of slang, slur phrase in the UK called “roll deep,” which means to have someone, always have someone that has your back, and you’re never on your own, if you’re ever in trouble you’ve always got someone who’s going to come and help you fight it or whatever like that. And that’s how I felt in the relationship that the record’s about, especially “Rolling in the Deep.” That’s how I felt, you know, I thought that’s what I was always going to have, and um, it ended up not being the case.”
“I thought Bonnie Raitt sounded the best of any performer tonight.”
Sorry I missed that. I’ll have to see if I can find her performance somewhere.
Found this Etta James tribute. It’s short. Is that all Bonnie sang?
Over Christmas, my daughter was blasting her music while baking cookies and such, and she played a album’s worth of songs by Adele. I actually enjoyed it. Adele has kind of a Carole King thing going on. I like that. Though “Rolling in the Deep” starts out pure Bonnie Raitt... but of course, I like that even more. Good stuff.
“Speaking of, WHAT was that blasphemous crap song with the priest and altar boys?”
I caught the last hour of the Grammys. I saw that too.
Disgusting in so many ways.
