I love Adele’s new song, Someone Like You. Being shallow one of my favourite things about Adele is that she has an accent that makes her sound like the sort of “fik Bexley’eef chav” I have to endure my train journey alongside each day (innit), but has the most beautiful tone to her rich and classy singing voice.
Anyway, when I heard she’d released this song I was fully expecting to hear her perform a cover of ‘Someone Like You’ from the musical Jekyll and Hyde.
That reminded me of when Robbie Williams released ‘Let me Entertain You’ and I wondered whether he had opted for the cutesy Baby June or the raunchier burlesque version from Gypsy.
It’s a worry.
