The Curated Playlist: Adele

If I could switch voices with anyone in the world, it would be Adele Laurie Blue Adkins. I first loved her after hearing “Hometown Glory.” I became devoted after I saw her perform “Someone Like You” on Jools Holland. I pre-ordered 21 immediately after and she’s been my musical icon ever since. In honor of her new song “Hello” coming out today, here are my all-time favorite Adele songs.


  1. Melt My Heart to Stone
  2. Someone Like You
  3. Set Fire to the Rain
  4. Right as Rain
  5. Turning Tables
  6. Hometown Glory
  7. First Love
  8. Chasing Pavements
  9. He Won’t Go
  10. Rolling in the Deep
  11. Skyfall
  12. Cold Shoulder
  13. Tired

And I have to give a special shout to Adele’s rendition of “Make You Feel My Love.” It’s one of my favorite covers and it’s attached to one of my happiest memories: it played as Matthew and I had our first dance as husband and wife.
