  1. That was great, ta ๐Ÿ™‚ I came late to the Adele phenomenon because I live under a rock, so I missed most of what she’d put out, and as I wasn’t sure what to expect from the album tracks I didn’t look into it (because I’m weird like that), but from the clips you played I see I’m missing out – thanks for expanding my music horizons a little ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, the anecdotes about experiencing music in the UK were entertaining – we get a lot of different stuff over my side of the world (New Zealand) and it’s interesting hearing about how success in the popular music market is measured. You should do more of these, I’d definitely listen ๐Ÿ™‚
