Adele’s “Someone Like You,” subway style
Congrats to Grammy winner Adele, whose latest hit Someone Like You is scientifically proven to make you cry! To celebrate, let’s enjoy this cover, performed by a busker working for quarters in a New York subway stop.
When I watched this video last week, the morning was cold and grey (by Los Angeles standards), and I was huddled in bed with my laptop and cat, trying to procrastinate starting my day. And all of a sudden there I was, watching someone sing his heart out in such a beautiful simple way, all thanks to a stranger with a smart phone who shared a video with the entire world. And I had one of those moments that I don’t have that often anymore: I remembered just how fucking magical this all is.
For that, I’d put five bucks in that guy’s hat. If there was a way.
