But Adele’s catalog — she writes or co-writes most of her material — is filled with more than songs that allow you to cry in your wine.
The lyrics include “You look like a movie / You sound like a song / My God, this reminds me / Of when we were young.”
Don’t we all enjoy a good look back?
For when you’re feeling frustrated
“Should I give up/Or should I just keep chasing pavements?”
For when you’re feeling ready to move on
“I can’t keep up with your turning tables/Under your thumb, I can’t breathe,” she sings.
It’s the perfect song for the moment when you finally realize “You know what? I can’t don’t this anymore.”
For when you’re feeling overlooked
Technically this song wasn’t originally hers, but Adele made it her own.
It’s for those times when you don’t feel seen, especially by someone you love.
“I know you haven’t made your mind up yet/But I would never do you wrong,” she croons. “I’ve known it from the moment that we met/No doubt in my mind where you belong.”
For when you want to feel empowered
Who among us hasn’t longed to tell someone “You’re gonna wish you never had met me/Rolling in the deep/Tears are gonna fall.”
Yes, yes they are.
For when you’re feeling devastated
No further explanation needed.
For when you’re feeling YOURSELF
“But rumor has it I’m the one you’re leaving her for.”
