First single, Rolling in the Deep: off her new album 21

Check out the Bedroom 8 Paradise Remix Radio Edit, it ROCKS!!

Off of her first album 19 here is Best for Last:

Adele reminds me of Etta James, her look and her sound are classic. I'd love to hear her sing Etta's 1961 hit "At Last". She could sing in an upcoming episode of Mad Men... in a Glee sorta way. (BTW, keep an eye out for my upcoming Mad Men post. Yes, I was a little late to that party, but thanks to Netflix I am almost caught up. Love the interiors, I bet set designing for that show is sooo much fun!)
