Things I Love Thursday

Thanks to my quick-thinking beau and his kind heart, I now have 2 new albums in my possession:

1. Corrine Bailey Rae's "The Love E.P."

I really enjoyed the album in it's entirety, though there were only 5 songs.

My fave was definitely her rendition of "Que Sera Sera" with a vocal accompaniment by John McCallum. It was 13 minutes and 26 seconds of pure awesomeness!

2. Adele's sophomore album "21"

I liked the overall progression of the songs on the album. In a way, it depicted all the feelings one experiences when going through a break-up.

Her voice was so crisp and I can honestly say that I felt every emotion emitted through her voice and the lyrics, especially in the songs "Don't You Remember" and "Take It All". Those two were also my favorite songs on the album.

I also think her closing song, "Someone Like You", was absolutely splendid. It was like, the song that expresses all the feelings you still have for a past love who has moved on while you haven't.

"I heard that you're settled down,
That you found a girl and you're married now,
I heard that your dreams came true,
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you,
Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light,

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it,
I had hoped you'd see my face,
And that you'd be reminded that for me it isn't over,

Never mind, I'll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you, too,
Don't forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
'Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead'"
