My God, This Reminds Me Of Why I Love Adele

The only way you haven't heard of Adele's record-breaking comeback album 25 is if you've been living under a rock.

She hasn't had anything in three years.  The first single, "Hello" was met with critical acclaim. It sold close to 3.5 million copies its first week. To date, it's sold 15 million copies worldwide.

When "Hello" came out, people were in a frenzy. Adele fans were beside themselves. The Twittersphere went wild. Celebrities were crying.

And the song is good.  Great, even.  Hell, Adele is amazing.  I love everything that comes out of her mouth.  I haven't had a chance to listen to the entire album, uninterrupted. I played it in the car on our road trip back from New Mexico, and it's good, really good.  But I didn't listen the way I would have if I were alone.

Of what I did hear, I have to say that at this point my favorite song is not "Hello".

It's "When We Were Young". I've been playing it for days now.

Watch the video.
